Withings announces the stylish Steel HR Sport, available now for $200

With its circular OLED screen it's not quite so easy to mistake for a full-analog watch as the original Activité, but it does give the Steel HR Sport a lot more flexibility. A 40mm watch with a 316L stainless steel case, it straddles casual and sports style, and promises to not only collect your fitness stats but deliver alerts from your smartphone, too.

The Withings Steel HR Sport is now here to battle various fitness-centric devices from the likes of Fitbit and Garmin, combining an unquestionably stylish design with a fairly robust feature set. The Steel HR Sport maintains the look of a "regular" watch but continues to provide all of the fitness tracking features that you'd want in a wearable.

Despite the majority of the watch being supported by analog pieces, there will be a small OLED display that will be able to show different health metrics that are recorded throughout the day.

That said, while we haven't had a chance to test this thing out for real, the Steel HR Sport's design and specs look the part, and that's an important first step for a company entering the second phase of its independence.

The HR Sport offers multisport tracking for more than 30 different activities, everything from yoga to boxing and ice hockey. It's available with either a white and black watch face.

A single side-mounted button is in charge of UI navigation, while the Steel HR Sport is also billed as the first product "within the Steel HR range" to offer Global Positioning System support. Once paired with a smartphone, users can track their pace, distance, elevation and map their workouts while walking, running or cycling. There details on VO2 max are stored, too, with a Fitness Level assessment available. Known as VO2 Max, its fitting that Withings, known for its health focus, has included this feature. You can also extend that 20 additional days when you use the power saving mode. Steel HR Sport is a sophisticated sleep tracker, detecting length and quality of sleep and providing an overall Sleep Score in the Health Mate app that is based on sleep duration, depth regularity and interruptions. The app even offers a Sleep Smarter Program, consisting of eight weeks of recommendations to improve sleep patterns.

While it takes approximately 2 hours to charge to 100%, the Steel HR Sport can be topped off to 80% in 1 hour. The Withings Steel HR Sport is available from September 18, priced at $199.95. Previously limited to calls, text messages, and events, the Steel HR line is now compatible with notifications from all apps -just customize to get the ones that are important to you.
