Engadget Review

Don't be fooled its the lower price tag: There's nothing the premium Activité can do that the less expensive Pop can't. There aren't any high-end materials here, but the end result is a wearable that looks great, tracks steps with ease and won't make your wallet weep.

Fitness on your wrist has never been more convenient or more stylish than on the Activité Pop, an everyday watch with fitness smarts baked in.

We’re not convinced it’s the most accurate tracker we’ve used ... The reason people will love the Pop is its simplicity. In its own right it’s a lovely looking wristwatch and, at less than £120 / $150, the fitness features could even be looked upon as an added bonus.

If you want an attractive fitness tracker that doubles as a gorgeous wristwatch, look no further than the Withings Activité Pop.

The $150 Pop is simply the best dedicated activity tracker that one can buy right now. For the simple reason that unlike the rest, it won’t just be shoved in a drawer and forgotten months, or even weeks after purchase.

Its styling won’t be to everyone’s taste, of course, but it does mean you only need one wearable for time and tracking if you’re the sort of bod who wants both functions. I like the very granular step counter. I like the use of a coin cell power source. I don’t like the flaky connectivity.

If you're after a stylish activity tracker, the Withings Activité Pop hits the nail firmly on the head in the same way the Activité does, but at a cut price, and with a little more colour and fun at the same time. It is simple, subtle and the perfect balance between form and function.

Tom's Guide
The Withings Activité Pop is a stylish watch that doubles as a waterproof activity tracker at an affordable price.

PC Mag
The Withings Activité Pop is an elegant watch and a competent activity tracker for casual self quantifiers, but for $150, we wish it did more.

Mashable
The Withings Activité Pop isn’t the most feature-rich fitness wearable out there, but it tracks steps and sleeping activity in an unassuming, attractive watch.
