The most accurate way to take an infant’s temperature—a rectal thermometer—is also one of the most unpleasant. But infants the world over will wail a sigh of relief now that Withings new Thermo, which requires just a forehead sweep to detect a fever, is finally available.
Despite the name, smartwatches can be kind of dumb. Sure, they can do cool things, like control your music and put notifications on your wrist. But battery life woes and underwhelming platforms leave you questioning the real IQ of these supposedly “smart” devices. However, there is a road less traveled: an area…
Brace yourself for a slew of Finnish health hardware: Nokia has just announced that it plans to buy the digital wellbeing and wearables company Withings for $190 million.
At this point there are more activity trackers to choose from than stars in the sky. But with its new Go, Withings has focused on two of the most important features aspiring fitness buffs will need: great battery life thanks to an E Ink display, and a prominent countdown to keep users motivated.
If the thought of sticking a thermometer where the sun don’t shine to get an accurate reading disgusts you, Withings new Thermo provides a far less awkward, but equally accurate way to measure someone’s body temperature with just a simple tap on their forehead.
Like many of you, I work in front of a computer. They’re powerful devices, but they also suck your will to live and trick you into never, ever getting up and going outside. Reasons like that are why fitness trackers were invented.
At this year's CES, we found out that one of the most attractive (and expensive) fitness trackers out there was going to come in an affordable form: the Withings Activité Pop. The catch? It was iOS only. But no more! Withings has announced both the $400 and $150 versions of its watch-based fitness tracker are coming…
This year's CES is flooded with fitness trackers, and there are hundreds more waiting in the wings. But what's set the most interesting ones apart isn't price. It's design. The fitness tracker and the watch are converging, in the best possible way. And faster than you might have thought.
Withings has been making some of the best fitness trackers for a couple years now. So when we first saw the Withings Activité—a lovely analog watch that was secretly an activity tracker—we were excited. That excitement waned, somewhat, when we found it it costs $450. Oh but hello, here comes the new Activité Pop,…
The number of connected home devices has skyrocketed in the past dozen months, and your loved ones might feel a little left out if they're not controlling appliances with a phone. Let's fix that, shall we?
Pre-orders have opened for the Withings Activité, the beautiful-looking watch that also happens to be a fitness tracker. Unfortunately, the price is right in line with other quality watches: four hundred and fifty of your finest American dollars.
If you've been waiting for a smartwatch that looks beautiful in a more traditional sense, your wait might be over. The new Withings Activité is a fitness tracker that can really hold its own in terms of style.
In sci-fi movies, people of the future live in impossibly futuristic houses full of screens and robots and dreams. We see them wake up as an automatic curtain opens, and they saunter over to a closet where their clothes move on a conveyor belt. It's a real world facsimile of a Jetsons episode. But it's not the real…
Last year, Withings' Pulse fitness monitor impressed us with the plethora of data it collects—including, as the name suggests, your pulse. This year's update adds yet one more handy feature: a blood oxygen monitor. Mountain climbers, now you can breathe easy.
Designing an electronic device to wake someone up is easy—it just needs a clock and suitably loud speaker. But designing a device that wakes someone up gently so they're not a tyrant in the morning, and helps them get to sleep at night? That's a challenge that Withings tackled with its new Aura bedside system that…
This year has produced a flood of fitness trackers and, as such, it takes more than it has in the past to stand out from the crowd. The unassuming Withings Pulse has a neat trick up its sleeve that just might do it: In addition to all the usual stuff, it can take your pulse.
For better or worse, CES Unveiled is a thing. We actually find it terribly convenient—dozens of gadgetmakers under one roof. And we found some cool stuff too. Huzzah! We braved the throngs and fried-food-vapors for you, my dears. Here's the best stuff we saw:
Withings' other announcement today was an updated Wi-Fi scale that measures your heart rate, as well as the quality of the air in which you sleep and reside. A sensor on the scale probes the surrounding air every 30 minutes, a Withings spokesman tells us, and every morning when you jump on, it'll give you a…
Though it seems iterative, Withings new Smart Body Analyzer WS-50 adds additional features like heart rate and air quality monitoring. Your weight, body fat and pulse are then transmitted over Wi-Fi/Bluetooth to the Withings Health Mate app (iOS, Android).
