The Activite Pop analog watch features a lightweight design that extends across the PVD-coated watchcase and the silicone strap.

“We’ve paired Activite’s elegant Parisian design with fun-to-wear materials and pop colors in order to create a very personal device that people would want to wear and never take off,” said Cedric Hutchings, CEO of Withings.

Activite Pop features two hand dials, one showing the time and a sub dial showing percentage progress of specific activity goals.

The watch vibrates when the activity goal is achieved. The watch also automatically recognizes and tracks swimming and running.

It also monitors sleep quality and wakes the user up with a gentle vibration. The device syncs automatically with the free Withings Health Mate application.

Activite Pop’s hands move automatically when it crosses time zones or the clock changes. There is no need to recharge it as a single standard watch battery powers it and lasts up to 8 months. It is also water resistant up to 30 meters.
