The Activité watch is the first of its kind, combining smartwatch technology with conventional design.

Frédéric Lintz of Eliumstudio explains, "It is the first analogue watch that combines the benefits of traditional timepieces with an activity tracker connected to your body." Lintz goes on to say he considers the watch as a starting point for a new generation of connective products that integrate technology into our lives smoothly.

The Swiss time piece works in conjunction with an application to monitor the amount of steps you take, calories you burn and overall distance traveled in a day. It will also keep track of your sleep patterns. The wearer can interpret this data using the analogue sub-dial, characterized with a distinctive blue watch hand.
