This Stylish Smartwatch Blows Away the Apple Watch

Here's a fitness tracker that doesn't look like one

Sometimes it’s nice to blend in. There’s no way to tell the Withings sports watch can track all the fitness data it does just from looking at it. That’s part of what makes it so cool. It’s simple and sleek, but it’s also equip with some really impressive fitness tracking capabilities that will take your workout routine to the next level. This watch tracks your heart rate, steps, distance and other activities like running, as well as calories.

This watch connects to any Apple or Android smartphone and automatically syncs the data to it so that you can keep track of your workouts and fitness goals on a daily basis. It also comes with a fitness assessment tracker and a workout mode that can be set to 30 different types of activity.

You won’t need an alarm with this watch. Not only will it monitor your sleep and provide you with a sleep cycle analysis, but it also comes with a silent, vibrating alarm, which, if you ask us, is a much gentler way of waking up. If you’ve ever wondered about your sleep cycles, including when’s the best time for you to go to bed, how much you’re actually sleeping and the quality of that sleep, this watch may be the solution for you because it will give you insight into all of this data.

It’s also water resistant, up 5 ATM/50 meters, which makes it that much more easy to wear on a daily basis — no need to take it off every time you shower, and you can also swim with it, something that’s not recommended with Apple’s smart watches. The battery life on this watch is 25 days when it’s fully charged, so you won’t have to charge it every night.

The watch costs $199.95, which is less than half the price of many smart watches on the market. Huckberry gives you free shipping and free returns within 30 days.

How to win at budgeting, from 13.9 million Redditors who are crushing it 

"The truth is it makes me feel in control of every expense I've made." 

Most of us spend money like we’re in a trance state induced by mind-controlling zombie fungus. When you feel the impulse to buy coming on, your rational mind is a pawn. The fungus is at the helm, and it still knows how to use your debit card.

Brad Klontz, Ph.D., is a professor of financial psychology at Creighton University Heider College of Business and the founder of the Financial Psychology Institute, and he knows better than anyone that impulse buying isn’t the exception, but rather the norm. He tells Inverse that it’s fairly common to feel out of control of your spending.
