The Withings Steel HR Sport Hybrid is a watch that covers many bases for most people, from athletes to those who want to track their health and sleep. Weighing only 43 grams (1.3 ounces) and measuring 40 mm wide, the Steel HR Sport Hybrid features a stamped stainless steel case on wristbands made from a resin designed to resist dirt and stains.
The watch tracks your heart rate and vibration to assist with tracking your fitness routine and activities. The smartwatch even works with the popular fitness app Strava, mapping your runs and cycles so you can compare your performance in the past to more recent outings.
The steel case is accompanied by a high-resolution transflective display, while signal reception is provided by WiFi and Bluetooth Smart connectivity. A full battery charge can be achieved in just 45 minutes and offers up 25 day battery life thanks to an LED light on the watch face.
One unique aspect of the Steel HR Sport Hybrid is a workout mode that allows you to track your activity with connected GPS functionality. This allows you to track your runs and cycling sessions with the watch itself, while you can also enjoy product-specific updates from the Withings Fitness Social Network (WFN), which offers information on workouts, progress and motivation sharing.
