Engadget Review

If you're looking for a wearable that's as much a status symbol as it is a piece of gear, consider the $450 Withings Activité. The entire thing is hewn of premium materials (think stainless steel, calfskin leather and sapphire crystal), but its lovely looks are offset by its inability to do anything beyond tell time and count steps. You won't feel embarrassed wearing it, but you will feel poorer.

Pros
  • Beautiful design and materials
  • Step counter works well
  • Easy-to-understand user interface
Cons
  • Hefty price tag
  • Companion app lacks polish
  • Limited functionality
