Not long ago we wrote about smart watches of the French company Withings, now they are back with third analog watch that tracks fitness activity: Activité Steel. The first smart watch Activité launched last year and in early 2015 we saw a sporty Activité Pop.

The pleasant surprise is that Activité Steel costs only $170, which is a good price compared Activité, which sells for $450.

Activité Steel don’t have leather straps and sapphire glass as the first Activité, but there are stainless steel with chrome trim. It has classy look and is able to track your steps, stages of sleep and even swimming due to its water resistance to 50 meters.

Activité Steel works with normal watch battery and her life lasts up to eight months, according to the standards of Withings. Activité Steel is available for purchase today, but only in black. You can order it from the site of Withings.
