Wiithings has launched a new smartwatch at CES 2015, it is a more affordable version of the Activité, it’s the Activité and it offers all the same features at a fraction of the cost.
The biggest difference is materials, you get the same Wiithing application, but you loose the high end premium materials, That’s not to say the Pop feels cheap.
There is also an application that can get mobile devices connected to the watch for better and easier activity tracking. The watch uses a CR2025 battery, so there won’t be any need to charge it, if you’re wondering how long that charge will last, they’re estimating that it’ll give you about 8 months before you have to change the battery. It doesn’t have a sapphire glass surface, so the pricing wouldn’t come as a surprise – just $150. It also has a silicon band.
One complaint that some reviewers had with the original edition was its thickness, it has a tappered edge that makes you think it’s not as thick, but it is a thicker then you’d like in watch…especially if you’re a woman.
Activité will be out on the 6th of January at www.bestbuy.com.
