Ahead of this years edition of Consumers Electronics Show (CES 2015), Withings has unveiled a more fun and affordable version of its Activit smart watch, the Activit Pop.
Like its high-end predecessor, the Activit Pop is an analog wristwatch equipped with built-in activity and sleep tracking capabilities and integrated with the Withings Health Mate app for iOS. It features a main hand dial that shows the time and a sub-dial that indicates the percentage progress of specific activity goals.
But what sets the Pop from the original Activit is its lightweight and fun watchcase and wristband design that comes in three Pop chic colors (Azure, Shark Grey, Sand).
Moreover, the Activit Pop is priced at $150 cheaper than the Apple Watch, which starts at $350, and the original Activit, which costs $450.

Withings will showcase the Activit Pop at its booth at CES 2015 from Jan. 6 to 9.
Aside from unveiling the Activit Pop, the consumer electronics company has announced that it has earned three CES 2015 innovation awards, two for the Withings Activit (Fitness, Sports, and Biotech and Wearable Technologies) and one for the Withings Home video camera and environmental sensor (Smart Home).
