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.
After my last review, the fogging issue became worse, almost to the point where I couldn't read the hands of the watch anymore. I contacted customer support again, and they instructed me to return the watch for a replacement. The return process was simple, and I had a new watch in a couple of days. However, the fogging began on the new watch almost immediately. I have basically stopped using this watch as it fogs up constantly now (I live in Florida, and the watch just can't handle going from a cool, dry, air conditioned interior to a warm, humid exterior without going opaque).
Another issue I found extremely annoying was trying to recharge the watch. I had to fidget for extended periods to get the charger to line up correctly and start the charging. It is a good thing that the battery does seem to last a long time because if I had to do this every couple of days, I would have given up a long time ago.
I really wanted to like this watch. I want a fitness tracker, but I also don't want it to look like a gadget. The watch is beautiful. Just wish it was better made.
***Edit to original review***
I have dropped the review down to three stars. Still like it, and 90% of the time I don't have any issues. However, I have noticed that the inside of the face fogs up when going from a colder environment to a warm one. Seeing that I live in Florida and we've had a mild winter, I didn't think this would be much of an issue, but it has happened several times. Fog dissipates after returning to the normal environment, but it does cloud up the face. I contacted Withings and they said this was nothing to be concerned with. That said, I have never had a watch that did this.
Received the 40mm version of this watch for Christmas. I previously used the Withings Go, so I was already familiar with the app, but wanted something that looked more professional to wear in the office. My thoughts after wearing this watch for the last month: I love it.
Pros: It is a very good looking watch. And I use the word "watch" purposefully - it looks like a watch, not a fitness tracker. The step counter seems to be spot on, and I have tested it while manually counting the steps, and it was always very close to my counts (and quite honestly, I think the watch was correct - I don't trust my concentration that much and find myself forgetting what number I was on as I was counting). Heart rate sensor seems to be good, and registers my heart rate even when the watch slips down on my arm (Withings recommends you wear it above the wrist bone). I never thought that I wanted a smart watch, but I do find it beneficial to be able to glance down at my watch to see what text message just came in and whether I should get the phone out to read the text (for example, news from my favorite hockey team) or if I can leave it in my pocket (e.g., my wife). Finally, the battery life estimates are pretty good - I've only had the watch on the charger once in the month that I've had it.
Cons: I'm not a huge fan of the band that comes with the watch. It is a rubbery band, and in the humidity of central FL, my wrist gets very sweaty under the band. But since this is a standard watch setup, the band would be easy to change and customize. The only other minor con is the activity recognition. My main two forms of exercise are walking (which it does an excellent job recognizing) and rowing on an indoor rower. The watch doesn't recognize rowing, and stores at as walking. Simple fix to go into the app and switch the activity from walking to rowing though.
All in all, I love the watch. I also have the Withings scale and thermometer, and I love how all these connect into the app to show a more thorough picture of your health.
