Nokia opens pre-orders for its Steel HR hybrid smartwatch, shipping starts in December


Pre-orders for the Nokia-branded Steel HR hybrid smartwatch have just kicked off. The Finnish company took to Twitter to announce the latest developments:


Nokia might be advertising the Steel HR as a "new" product, this isn't exactly the case. French health and fitness technology company Withings actually announced the Steel HR at IFA in September of 2016 and began selling it after getting acquired by Nokia in June of that year. 

However, there are some slight changes on board the Nokia-branded timepiece. HMD says that it has opted for sapphire glass on the heart rate monitor in order to guarantee water protection of up to 50 meters. Also, there are software improvements on board, such as an enhanced heart rate algorithm that provides more accurate tracking. 

The Steel HR is available in two case sizes - 36 and 40mm. The former costs $179.95, while the latter is priced at $199.95. The color options for the dial are black and white. Nokia says that quantities are limited, but those who pre-order now can receive their purchase in early December. For more information on the Steel HR, feel free to check out the source link below.

I like the hybrid idea. It's a nice classy design by Nokia too IMO.
