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.

As a Personal Trainer, my clients weekly/monthly successes are based on weight loss or muscle gains. This scale is everything and more. You can add your clients on the App as users which means you are constantly tracking to ensure that any adjustments made will be to their benefit. Given we live in a very data orientated world, this scale is the one tool that no PT should go without. Easy to carry and even easier to use. Thank you FitTrack, you did it again.

Thank you for taking the time to provide such a well thought our review. Coming from a personal trainer, someone who is dealing with measuring and tracking the health and fitness of your clients, your review of the Eufy Body Analysis scale is much appreciated. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything else we can do to assist.


Great fitting headphones. Seemless connection. Connects instantly with all modern phones and with most laptops. The cushion is sublime and isn’t stuffy. Fits my ears perfectly. Long lasting battery and the sound is fantastic. For the price you get and the features it holds. I highly recommend. Phone calls work so easily as well. Ability to skip songs, put somebody on hold and pickup another call. It’s just amazing. Comes with a case and a headphone Jack if you want to use it wired. Even comes with a large adapter if you’re in the music industry. What more can you ask for?

What an awesome review - thank you! We're pretty impressed with the Cowin SE7MAX ourselves, and we test a lot of headphones! The ANC performance is also impressive. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review.

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!
