What it does:
1. It tracks your steps, measures your heart rate, alarms, and displays notifications. The information you get: the time (either via old school hands or when you push a button via a VERY small but bright display), your steps (either a dedicated smaller dial or via the display), and then (only on the display): notifications (calls, texts, etc. pop up without intervention), your heart rate, miles traveled, battery level, and alarm.
2. The heart rate is “sampled” every few minutes 24x7. If you want, you can hold down the crown for a few seconds. This causes heart rate to be measured constantly during a workout; holding down the crown again stops the constant measurement.
3. You configure the watch and see the data on a companion phone app. You don’t have to have your phone with you to use the watch, but you need the app to change your time or date, time zone, etc., etc.
How well does it work? Do I like it?
1. For me, pretty well. The step count looks accurate, as does the heart rate.
2. It’s nicely made, doesn’t look “geeky,” and fits well on my large wrist. It sticks up a bit, but not overly so. (See pic.)
3. it’s nice that Withings ties all the data from all their instruments together. I have the blood pressure cuff, the Aura alarm/sleep monitor, the “thermo”(memeter), and the Cardio scale. Everything gets aggregated.
4. The battery life is fantastic. Days and days and days, even if using continuous heart rate during exercise.
What it doesn’t do (or doesn’t do well):
1. Play well with others. I use Strava for tracking bike rides, etc., and unlike Garmin and other sports-oriented watches, it’s not really practical to export heart rate data from Withings, e.g. in .FIT or .GPX. As a result, I wear two watches while running, and use a 2nd heart rate monitor for exercise. At a minimum, it would be nice if it broadcast heart rate over Bluetooth when in “constant measurement” mode.
2. Present the data in a great way. Withing’s web and mobile experience is easy to figure out, but sometimes simplicity is the enemy of clarity. For example, the scale on most of their graphs is almost impossible to read. See the pics: the "sleep" picture with the Lumosity graph are from the Aura... without is from this watch. Also, the watch heart rate is aggressively smoothed... more so than with the Aura.
3. Be easy to read. The hands are very narrow, and in low light are hard to read. And the digital display is REALLY tiny. Very annoying!
4. Accurately track sleep. The Aura and it disagree on when I go to sleep or get up; the Aura is right…
5. Be easy to charge. The charger dongle is custom (always a worry that you'll lose it). The phone can easily disconnect from it (just look at it funny). Why can't everyone just use wireless Qi charging?
So, what’s the bottom line?
It’s a great health watch, but only a so-so fitness watch. I will wear it proudly 24x7, but will also have to strap on my Garmin watch when working out. Honestly, most of the things getting in the way of it being a fitness watch could be fixed in their mobile app or web service.
And, any ideas for them? Yes! V2 of this watch should get rid of the small “steps” dial and instead have a “seconds” hand. Except that the “seconds” hand could be configured in the app to mean either seconds, “steps” (%age of goal), or “heart rate” (%age of max). Also, make the digital display a lot bigger. No need to have the funny small top small dial for it — just let it go across the entire watch face.
Caveat: I work for a company that's related to another company that makes watches, phones, and most everything else. I'm writing this as an individual, and have no interaction with the teams building consumer devices.
And a coda after using it constantly for a few weeks. I love the battery life and quick charge. I just toss the watch onto its charger for a few minutes once or twice a week. That's it. I definitely don't love its heart rate tracking, especially during a workout. Hit or miss, I'm afraid. It's good enough for the occasional samples 24x7, just not for anything else.
1. The step and distance counter is not very accurate as compared to GPS based trackers but I don't find this very bad.
2. The watch face design was not up to my expectations. The watch needles or background could have been designed to make the watch more readable! It's hard to read the time on the watch in bright sunlight or later in the evening after sunset without using the button.
3. It's biggest design weakness is that the watch face fogs up even in slightly windy or humid environments making the watch unreadable till the humidity clears. This is irritating if you are running and want to look at the current heart rate or if you want to know the time but can't read the watch face. I have posted pics on this for Nokia (Withings) review and action.
4. The watch does not detect sleep patterns during the day such as an afternoon nap. It only shows sleep at night.
5. It's very cumbersome to fit and lock the watch on the charging device.
If the above mentioned design flaws are fixed, it would be an exceptional watch.
Pedometer seems very off. I used to have a fitbit and that and my phone would vary by a few hundred steps but the Steel hr shows thousands less somedays. Also, the face seems to fog up whenever I'm outside. And the band is really not comfortable. I've had the device for about a month now and have already had to do a factory reset when it stopped syncing to any device, losing all unsynced data. For the price I'm rather disappointed. I should have stuck with Fitbit.
UPDATE: The tracking capabilities of this watch are phenomenal. Unfortunately, the mundane details of charging and being able to keep the glass free from condensation just weren't worked out. The charger just doesn't work. It says to "line up the magnets" on the charger and the watch. It worked after some twisting and turning the first three times, but it has already broken. The charger is actually magnetically attached to the watch (when I pick the watch up, the charger stays with it), but there is no charge. Neither my computer nor my clock with USB ports recognize that anything has been plugged in when I plug in the charger.
Additionally, it has condensation under the glass 100% of the time that I am wearing it. It started out a little "cloud" that would move around and eventually evaporate, but now the center has a white "button" of moisture under the glass if the watch is on my wrist. It waxes and wanes in size, but it is always there.
I really LOVED this watch! If I could charge and read the damn thing without undue complications, I would love it.
