This Stylish Smart Watch Is Infinitely Better Than the Apple Watch
It feels like a decade since the Apple Watch and Fitbit came on the scene and now it seems like there’s a thousand different iterations at every price point. With that in mind, it can be extremely overwhelming and even daunting to navigate the watch—let alone smartwatch—landscape. Because of this, Apple is able to count on their brand recognition to take over where too many options are concerned.
But what if you don’t want to spend $600 on a glorified iPod Touch for your wrist? What if you don’t want to parse through a thousand options and their reviews? Allow me to make the choice easy for you.
Meet the Withings Steel HR, now available conveniently with free shipping and free returns on Huckberry. With all the specs of the beloved Apple Watch, but a more sauve shell, this smartwatch is basically a personal assistant on your wrist. You can monitor your heart rate at all times for a full holisitic understanding of your resting, active and sleeping heartrates so that you can better manage and detect changes in your health.
