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.

Pros:It looks like a nice watch, not like a tracker.The silent alarm (Activité pop vibrates to wake you up)Cons:Does not sync automatically with the app.App is so user-unfriendly.The "motivational messages" are so negative, they will make you feel miserable.Announced battery length: ~8 months. Actual battery length: 3.5 months. And the battery needs to be changed by a professional, which will set you back another €10. Contacted customer service regarding the battery's lack of length; the answer was that the battery length is affected by the use of the silent alarm and the number of times you sync your data. That basically means that if you use the basic features of this Activité Pop you cannot expect the battery length that was promised to you - I feel cheated on.Accuracy of data is patchy at best.
