Withings has a new baby in its wearable family. The company has unveiled a brand new activity tracker named Withings Go that has been showcased at CES 2016. It’s a coin sized clip-on wearable that commits to automatically track your activity and sleep. Though the company is well known for their typically high price tags, this time,the fitness tracker costs only $69.95.
Like the one on your Pebble and Kindle Fire display, the Withings Go uses an always on E Ink display. It comes with a black and white display and is very power efficient. There is a dial to show your activity goal progress for the day. This is the same bar that can change to show you time.
Like the other Withings tracking device, it tracks your steps, distance, running activity as well as your sleep cycles. It will automatically recognize whether you are walking around your home or walking around the block. It is also water resistance up to 5 meters, which means you can swim with it as well, and Go will recognize swim strokes automatically.
All the information will be sent through the Withings Health Mate app available in your iOS and Android device. If you don’t want to wear it as a wristband, there’s a solution for you. Go comes with a built-in clip that lets you attach the unit to a keychain, handcuff or belt loop. It’s powered by a removable button cell battery that lasts, at least, eight months. So, you don’t have to worry about charging the device regularly. Yesterday, the company unveiled a smart thermometer that you can place to your temple. The device will be available in Q1 of 2016.
