How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Review

Withings has crafted an excellent piece of hardware that might actually beat the Fitbit One at its own game. We just wish the company would add more motivational tools to its companion app.

Pros
  • Small and unobtrusive
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • Heart rate tracking will be a gimmick for most
  • Rubberized coating chips easily
  • Companion app offers little in the way of motivation
