Most activity trackers on the market right now have been designed to only track steps, calories and sleep. But if your main form of exercising is swimming, regular fitness trackers won’t give you accurate and detailed info on your workouts. The Activité and Activité Pop activity trackers from Withings can now automatically recognize if a you are swimming and will track how long you have been swimming and how many calories you’ve burned. Right now, the Withings Activité and Activité Pop activity trackers are only trackers on the market with the ability to auto detect swimming. These trackers feature a traditional analog watch face with a second analog dial that shows your progress towards your daily fitness goal (steps, swimming, etc). They also have a silent alarm, track sleep and do not require regular charging, but run for eight or more months on a button cell battery. Both watches are water resistant up to 50 meters. The Activité is the higher end model which has a Swiss movement and leather band. It’s priced at $450. The more economical Activité Pop activity tracker is available in a variety of watch face and silicone watch band colors. It’s priced at $149.95. For more info visit withings.com.
