Withings has released the latest version of its Sleep Analyzer, a mat that is used to monitor sleep habits, including heart rate, snoring, and sleep cycles.

Withings ScanWatch detects irregular heart rate and sleep apnea

The Apple Watch's atrial fibrillation or AFib detection definitely struck a chord in the wearables market, even if it is now the center of a patent lawsuit. Apple is naturally proud of how the feature, based on numerous testimonies, has been able to save lives. It is a matter of time before other smart wearable manufacturers catch up with it and it seems that Withings is one of the first to reach that point with its new ScanWatch hybrid smartwatch. More than just AFib detection, however, it is bringing another health feature to your wrist.

Withings Pulse HR fitness tracker boasts big battery life

Earlier this year, Withings announced that it is once again an independent company after being part of Nokia Health since 2016. The freshly-independent company is wasting little time in getting new products out the door, and today, it's reviving its old Pulse brand for a new fitness tracker. The original Pulse launched way back in 2013, so unsurprisingly, this new entry in the line - dubbed simply Pulse HR - comes with a number of upgrades.

Withings Steel HR Sport Review: Analog style with a smart heart

Withings Steel HR Sport Review: Analog style with a smart heart

Withings wrote the book on making a fitness wearable that wasn't an ugly hunk of rubber on your wrist: now, it wants the Steel HR Sport to do the same for smartwatches. Freshly returned to original co-founder Eric Carreel after a stint as Nokia Digital Health, this first product under new management argues you don't need to sacrifice classic watch style just to get modern smart features. In an Apple Watch Series 4 age, though, does Withings' nod to the analog past make too many compromises for its future?

Nokia Digital Health business not going so hot right now

Nokia Digital Health business not going so hot right now

After a couple years in the health device business, Nokia's now not quite as sure they're ready to stay. Back in April of 2016, the Nokia brand acquired the Withings brand, and all their devices along with it. At that time, acquiring Withings meant every single Withings brand device in production would switch to Nokia branding, and every device line in Withings lineup would go Nokia from that point on. That purchase might not have been Nokia's best.

Until Nokia gets said approval, they're removing the feature from all scales, even those already in consumer hands.

As if the wearable market was already crowded with smartwatches and half-smartwatches, here’s one more. Granted, the Nokia Steel HR isn’t exactly new.
