IFA 2023 News: Withings ScanWatch 2

The new Withings ScanWatch 2 bridges the gap between the two worlds of Analogue and Digital and offers a hybrid solution to this dilemma. Smartwatches are brilliant for many reasons, yet they lack the eye-catching element of an excellent timepiece.

But the ScanWatch 2 isn’t just about looks!

Withings has packed enough sensors and monitors into the ScanWatch 2 to help wearers track their health, sleep patterns, sports activities and around-the-clock tracking for 30 days between charges.

Total Health Monitoring

Withings ScanWatch 2 is a game-changer in health monitoring technology and builds upon the success of the original ScanWatch, which is FDA-cleared for detecting atrial fibrillation and measuring oxygen saturation from the wrist. In addition to monitoring sleep quality, physical activity, and various cardiovascular measurements, this watch now boasts enhanced sensors and software.

It offers features such as tracking baseline body temperature variations, female cycle tracking, heart rate variability, and automatic recognition of over 40 activities. This comprehensive suite of capabilities makes the ScanWatch 2 an indispensable tool for travellers striving to maintain their health, day and night, thanks to its impressive 30-day battery life.

As their new flagship wearable of hybrid watches, ScanWatch 2 will come in 38mm or 42mm sizes and either Black or White strap options. For a more tailored style, ScanWatch 2 will come in three exclusive styles: a Rose Gold Sand face, a Silver White face and a Rose Gold blue face.

Each model features a 0.63″ Grayscale OLED display at the top of the analogue face, with most of the health data and feedback being viewed from the bespoke Withings App.
