The smartwatch industry is developing right now and trying to find the correct balance between features and styling. The Withings Steel HR carry an analog dial like its activity-tracker predecessor the Withings Activite. Instead of just the daily goal dial, it adds a new digital dial atop that shows various information like incoming calls, steps taken, and even heart rate – thanks to the inclusion of a heart rate sensor. The heart rate sensor will help automatically activate tracking whenever a user begins running, and also helps makes activity tracking more comprehensive by being able to separate running from walking for example.
