Activite Pop is a $150 healthwatch that tracks your fitness goals

Withings has introduced the Activite Pop, a $150 version of its higher priced $450 top-shelf Activite model. Withings was able to slice the price by using materials like silicone for the strap and a PVD coating for the watchcase.

The Activite Pop will monitor your sleep, and you can be roused in the morning with a silent (read vibration) alarm. Using a run-of-the-mill watch battery, you can expect to go as long as eight months before changing the cell. The watch is water resistant to 98.4 feet. Battery life is up to 8 hours. No, there is no digital screen. Instead, you use the companion app to set goals, and the smaller dial on the timepiece tells you what percentage of your target has been achieved.

While the timepiece won't be widely available until March, limited quantities of the watch are expected to be offered starting tomorrow, on Best Buy's website. If $450 for the more luxury Activite watch is too rich for your blood, you can save $300 by taking the Pop instead.

Man, that crap looks like a cheap $15 dollar watch from K Mart.

Or for $50 more, get an actual smartwatch with a fitness tracker that works with any of the major three OSes with the Microsoft Band...

The problem is that the Microsoft Band and all the rest of the smartwatches are that they are hideously ugly. The modern version of a calculator watch for tech nerds. Some of us like the classic look of a simply analog watch.
