Review: Withings fitness suite pairs wearables and smart scales for easy fitness tracking [Video]

After selling to Nokia and then returning to its own brand, Withings is back in action bringing stylish and functional fitness devices to market.

It delivered everything I wanted functionality-wise in a sleek analog design – and at $180, it’s a pretty affordable wearable. Then, a few months after I bought the Nokia Steel HR, Withings came out with the Steel HR Sport with a dark grey stainless steel case. This is the look I originally wanted with the Nokia. The Sport is a little more expensive at $200, but not by much.
