Withings Steel HR – Activity Tracking Watch with Heart Rate Monitoring
Steel HR is the activity tracker with heart rate monitoring to offer a long-lasting battery life of up to 25 days, all housed in a classic watch perfect for transitioning from the gym to the office to a night out. Plus, stay connected with smartphone notifications that appear right on the watch screen.
All-Inclusive Heart Rate Monitoring
Because heart rate is a key indicator of overall health, Steel HR offers automatic heart rate tracking throughout the day and night. Explore daily heart rate variance and discover resting heart rate to understand how your heart responds to daily activities.
Steel HR continuously tracks heart rate during exercise to help you optimize workout performance. During workouts, see your heart rate with the push of a button. After, assess your overall performance with a personalized in-app report that delivers insights on maximum heart rate and time spent in each heart rate zone.
Track Activity and View Trends
Steel HR automatically recognizes walk, run, swim, and sleep and syncs data to the Health Mate app on your smartphone. In the app, visualize progress via detailed graphs and trend lines and get personalized coaching with insights, advice, and a leaderboard, where you can challenge friends.
Users can easily view their data on the digital display with a multifunctional button on the side of the watch. Each push of the button allows users to scroll through the date, heart rate, daily steps, calories burned, distance, and set alarm time.
On Time and In the Know
Steel HR provides enhanced connectivity with text, call, email, and event alerts right on the watch screen, as well as a silent vibrating alarm to help you get going in the morning, or off to your next meeting.
Long-Lasting and Water-Resistant
With a battery life of up to 25 days, Steel HR has one of the longest battery life of any heart rate tracker on the market, and fully recharges in just 2 hours. And with water resistance up to 50 meters, it can accompany you to the pool, hit the showers, and be ready for a night on the town.

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.

Withings Customer Support
Withing apps was very good I loved it.
Slick and ergonomic design, very elegant watch.
Fantastic battery for what it does.
Good heart rate monitor.
Humidity inside the watch: This is a big killer (2 stars down). It came after couple of weeks of using the watch with showering and a little bit of swimming in the pool and got only worse until the watch stopped working altogether.
Charging: The mechanism is simply not tested at all. Locking magnets are too weak and the watch does not signalize interruption of charging. (half star down)
Step measurment: Although it can detect various activities, it cannot do the most basic thing properly - count the steps. I know it's not a trivial thing at all, but in this price segment I'd expect much better performance. (1 star down)
App: Nokia's new app is far inferior UX-wise to old Withings. Coupled with occassional unexplainable losses of connection (old and new app) its nothing much to brag about. (half star down)
