Withings doubles down on classics with ScanWatch Horizon

I tried new Withings ScanWatch about six months ago, and concluded that this is a great smartwatch for people who prioritize their health. from wearing a tiny iPhone-like device on your wrist. Today, the French company has announced a more stylish version of the same watch, borrowing the design language from diving watches of the past.

As an avid diver, I’m always a little confused by “diving watches”. Sure, 10 bar water resistance means you can dive to 100 meters (300 feet), which is deeper than any recreational diver, but if you’re going to those depths, you’re advised to bring a real dive computer along with you. However, the style is chic; the luminescent dial and rotating bezel make it look even less like a smartwatch, which is a bonus if you’re into that sort of thing like me.

At $499, it’s not cheap, but with an impressive array of health-focused features and good looks, it’s still reasonably priced. The watch can last up to a month on a single charge and can measure ECG, heart rate and O.2 sensors, activity tracking and sleep tracking.

“The luxurious design and robust health features of the ScanWatch Horizon are a great addition to the existing ScanWatch lineup and we are excited to bring it to the US,” said Mathieu Lethombe, CEO of Withings. “Complex medical devices that control advanced vital functions don’t have to look like hospital equipment. With the original ScanWatch, the sleek rose gold version, and now the ScanWatch Horizon, we have a style option to suit any fashion preference, social occasion, or budget.”
