The trouble with most wearable technology is not how it works, but how it looks; enter the Withings Activite watch. Instead of looking like a piece of technology that is wearable, it is an accessory that happens to be capable of tracking fitness as well as telling the time. Instead of making smartwatches look smart, the Withings Activite design focuses on the 'dumb' watches of yesteryear that people continue to wear on an everyday basis.

Chic and contemporary with a leather wristband, the Withings Activite watch indicates people's daily activity goals by way of a smaller second hand often associated with another timezone. The subtlety doesn't end there. Withings Activite can also connect via Bluetooth to an accompanying iOS and Android Health Mate app to convert the tracked movements into calories burned, steps taken and more.
