Withings Activit© Fitness Smartwatch Is Going To Be Gaining Android Compatibility

March 1, 2015 - Written By Octavian Gensthaler

As the smartwatch industry keeps developing, we’re starting to see more creative uses for these intelligent devices. Most smart watches released so far allow you to connect to a certain operating system or device and sync your data with it, but no smartwatch has achieved the level of connectivity that Withings plans to achieve. So far Withings has only supported iOS devices, but the company plans on expanding its smartwatch support for Android devices starting today. Most of the device’s features remain the same, but the smartwatch itself is being improved quite heavily. For instance, the Health Mate app is going to remain the same, but the smartwatch will connect with Google Fit and you’ll be able to share this health data across all devices.

This important expansion comes just in time for Withings’ smart watch to hit the US market. A while ago the tech company added some new styles to its smartwatch which priced the device at $150, so it’s not too expensive at all. For those who wish to track their health data and for the tech enthusiasts who are into fitness, this device is a great choice and a stylish one too. Withings’ smartwatch can track multiple sorts of data. For instance, you can track your own weight, your pulse, oxygen levels, and more. You can even track your sleeping routine as well as your blood pressure, so it’s a must-have for those who value their health. There is no better tool for doing this, and you’ll not only get to store this data, but you’ll also get comprehensive graphs, you’ll get to set goals and improve your life gradually.

Withings’ software is boasted as one of the best around the market at doing these things, and the smartwatch isn’t too expensive either, at least when you take into account its competition. Sure, it may not be too suited for social media or other things, but it excels at the specific goal it has in mind. How do you feel about this smartwatch’s expansion to the Android platform? Will you start using this device once it becomes available to the wider market, or do you prefer an alternative? Let us know via our G+ page.
