Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch8/10 (Expert Score)
The Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch is where the concept of the predecessor Steel HR continues and seems like an analog watch. Only the small OLED display reveals what’s behind it
The design of the Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch as a unisex watch is largely similar. The stainless steel body is only available in the 40 mm version and also without color variations on the case, so this is only matt dark gray. Only at the dial you can choose between black and white. I myself use the black version because I personally like it best. Unlike the Nokia version, the hands are partially dyed red here for a sportier tone. The bracelet is very easily replaceable. When buying the silicone band whose holes are colored for better ventilation inside light gray, with it. It is comfortable to wear and gives the watch a special look, which not only looks sporty, but even fits well with everyday wear or a suit. You have to buy more tapes extra. Pretty is,
On the dial of the Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch you can read the step time as well as the time of day. The small round display above shows date, time, heart rate, step count, distance, alarm and battery life. You can switch between the displays with the button on the right side. You can also view notifications about WhatsApp or other apps that you can select in advance. So the display shows me the content of a message or who is calling me. Compared to Nokia, the display here is larger in the presentation, so that the content is easier to see. The brightness is automatically adjusted if you do not set it manually in the app. I would recommend it to be automatic because it works well and the content is always visible.
Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch Function
The Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch does everything you expect from a fitness watch. It accurately indicates the heart rate, which it measures every 10 minutes, or every second, should you start a physical activity such as running or swimming. Walking is also recognized, but the heart rate monitor measures only regular. That you train is automatically detected, so you do not have to adjust anything. Here one has the advantage that one does not forget to pause the whole break. However, if you want, you can manually start the training session by long pressing the button on the right. This is what you do eg when you do other sports. In the app, you can then assign the right sport to this training session, or you can choose up to five sports right from the start, which you can start directly from the watch.
Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch App
The app you associate with the Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch and other Withings products is called ” Health Mate “. It has not changed and Nokia devices continue to work. The app presents recorded data clearly in numbers and graphs. For good services and milestones, you will receive badges as a reward. These come with small info texts. Meanwhile, I’ve come to over 720 km with the Nokia Steel HR, which I used before, and received the “Tour of Lake Baikal” badge. A link to the Wikipedia entry is included.
Other things you can record manually. So you can register your food and drink, weight, blood pressure and more. However, some of these only work in combination with other apps, so you’ll need to download “MyFitnessPal” for calories. Other apps like Google Fit, IFTTT, Nest, and Runkeeper are also supported. These can make the fitness watch too smart. For example, with Nest, the clock tells you if you’re sleeping or not, and the app automatically controls the Nest Thermostat, if you have one.
Some programs such as “smart sleep”, “ranking” (a social media program where you can compete against others), “pregnancy tracker” and “better body”. Although there are, but only two can be started with the clock alone. For the other two, you have to have a sleep tracker for under the pillow or a scale from Withings (or Nokia).
Withings Steel HR Sport Smartwatch battery
The Withings Steel HR Sport battery is still outstanding. 25 days, the watch comes out with a single charge and in low battery level, if you can do without the fitness functions at least, holds the hybrid watch as a simple watch another 20 extra days.
