Withings, now owned by the part of Nokia that wasn't acquired by Microsoft, has just launched its latest fitness tracking smartwatch, the Steel HR.

The Steel HR is analogue wrist watch with brains - and a small LCD display - behind the glass. In addition to tracking your steps, heart rate, sleep, and workouts, the Steel HR also uses its small display to alert you to notifications from a paired smartphone (compatible with iPhone and Android). Much like the Apple Watch Series 2, the Steel HR is swim-proof and can be submerged as deep as 50 metres.

Impressively, Withings says the Steel HR will last for 25 days in between charges.

The Steel HR starts at USD$179 for a 36mm watch, and USD$199 for a 40mm watch, with extra brands going for USD$30. Withings wearables haven't always been easy to find in Australia, but hopefully new owner Nokia will improve the company's local distribution.
