An analog hybrid watch
On the look side, we find ourselves facing a hybrid watch with analog design, equipped with a small screen that allows to display different information such as the heart rate, the number of steps taken, the remaining autonomy … On this subject , Withings announces an autonomy of about 30 days.
The waterproof watch also takes care of monitoring around thirty activities (like a Withings Steel HR for example), and works in concert with the Withings Health Mate app, available free on iOS as on Android.
” The ScanWatch watch makes revolutionary innovations available to the greatest number of people to detect sleep apnea and cardiac arrhythmias.
