What is a Hybrid Smartwatch?

Posted by FitTrack Australia on

Hybrid Smartwatches Australia at FitTrack - Withings / Nokia Steel HR - Rose Gold, Waterproof


Hybrid Smartwatches combine the look of a traditional analog watch, with the functionality of a smartwatch. The Withings Steel HR, Fossil Q Crewmaster, Skagen Signatur T & Misfit Command are examples of Hybrid Smartwatches.

A regular smartwatch generally have a digital screen and/or a touchscreen. The most popular example of a Smartwatch is the Apple Watch. Some others include: Samsung Galaxy Watch, Samsung Gear S3, Fitbit Versa, Garmin Vívoactive 3. Smartwatches enable the user to tell the time (of course), received notifications (email, SMS), track activity (via accelerometers and multiple sensors, like a pedometer), often measure Heart Rate and also have the ability to allow apps to run.

So if smartwatches are so useful and versatile, why would a Hybrid Smartwatch appeal to some?

Why Choose A Hybrid Smartwatch?

Hybrid Smart Watches offer a fantastic combination of style and functionality, coupled with exceptional battery life.  

Withings / Nokia Steel HR at FitTrack Australia - Hybrid Smart Watches

Here are some reasons why Hybrid Smartwatches have become so popular:
  • Stylish: Hybrid Smartwatches feature stunning designs, with analog watch faces stylish bodies and bands. Many just love the classic look of a traditional analog watch. With Hybrid Smartwatches, it isn’t often possible to tell that you are wearing a smartwatch. The feedback from many is that they find the look of the popular smartwatches
  • Notifications: Hybrid Smartwatches have a variety of ways of performing notifications. The Withings / Nokia Steel HR employs haptic feedback (ie vibration) and has a discreet OLED display through which notifications are displayed
  • Activity Tracking: One of the best features of Hybrid Smartwatches the activity tracking. The Steel HR Hybrid Smartwatch, for example, features comprehensive activity tracking which automatically recognizes and records your specific activity or sport (walk, run, swim, and sleep). It also features a workout mode (listing 30 sports).
  • Battery Anxiety: Despite the versatility of a standard smartwatch, many require daily charging. So for many, adding another device to charge is off-putting. Hybrid Smartwatches have a long battery life. The Withings Steel HR lasts 20-25 days per charge. This enables the watch to be used for sleep tracking (as you don’t have to charge them overnight).
  • Syncing with Apps on iOS & Android: Like standard smartwatches, Hybrid Smartwatches can sync activity and metrics (such as heart rate tracking) with the relevant apps.

So easy!

So easy to use! I check it every day and do 2-3 tests on each arm. Love the wireless capability and the battery life! Fantastic product!!

Shipping was super quick too. I love that! 💜

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the Withings BPM Connect. They are FitTrack's most popular blood pressure monitor for a reason! The convenience of your BP readings automatically syncing wireless with the HealthMate app, and then being able to share that data with your GP is amazing.

Great Ear buds

I wasn't sure what these earbuds would be like for the price as they are cheap but they are fantastic. I would definitely recommend them. The charger is very compact to take anywhere. They paired instantly to my iphone.

Thanks very much for taking the time to review the FitTrack Elegance 5.0! Yeah we agree - they are pretty slick little headphones and sound great. Love the way they (bluetooth) pair easily with your phone.

Best item I bought this year

I can monitor my BP anytime and it gets recorded immediately. I can easily show my GP during check ups.

Wow - thank you for the awesome review. The video certainly shows how convenient the Withings BPM Connect is to use. We have to say, one of the best parts about the Withings ecosystem is the Withings HealthMate app which brings together all the health data / measurements in an excellent interface. We really appreciate the time you've taken to review the Withings BPM Connect and upload that video!

really good product easy to connect and great sound.
