Posted by FitTrack Australia on

The Withings Steel HR Sport is a stylish Multi-sport Hybrid Smartwatch. It is a stylish and rugged alternative to the Fitbit Ionic and Garmin Vivomove HR.


Withings Steel HR Sport - Stylish alternative to Fitbit Ionic & Garmin Vivomove HR

Outstanding features include:

  • Multi-sport watch - capable of automatic activity detection
  • Heart rate monitoring
  • Connected GPS
  • Fitness level assessment via VO2 Max estimation
  • Smartphone notifications
  • Battery lasts up to 25 days
  • Water resistance up to 50m
  • Sleep monitoring
  • Interchangeable quick-release bands / straps
  • Apple Health / Google Fit integration


Where the Withings Steel HR Sport excels is its exceptional 25 day battery life and superior style.

However, the greatest advantage the Withings Steel HR Sport has over the Fitbit Ionic is the integration with the Withings Health Mate app and ecosystem which integrates with Apple Health and Google Fit. Whereas when using a Fitbit, you are confined to the Fitbit ecosystem.

  • I bought the Steel HR Sport so that I could determine when high heart rate occurrences were happening during the night whilst I was supposedly asleep that were highlighted by 48 hour Holter Monitoring. My doctor was suggesting that I should be prescribed with a Beta Blocker drug to prevent this. Having had adverse reactions to this type of drug I was reluctant to agree, particularly since I suspected that this was happening when I awoke during the night. The sleep monitoring capability of the Steel HR enabled me to demonstrate that in fact, the high heart rate sessions were in fact happening whilst I was waking up during the night and in fact was perfectly normal. Thus I was able to argue the case for trialling a very low dose of the Beta Blocker drug to see if this caused any adverse reactions, So far, it hasn’t. So, all good! The heart rate measurements are accurate and are within 2 bpm of the Kardia Mobile ECG unit that I use to check for Atrial Fibrillation. The HR Steel could only be improved by a) Making the watch hands more visible and by b) Developing Irregular Heart Rate Notifications, which I presume could be done by firmware re- design?

Best buy in ages

Brilliant little unit. So easy to use. Very portable and can be taken with you wherever you go. Well worth the cost. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you very much for the review of the Withings BPM Connect. That is something we hear often about the BPM Connect - that it is very compact, easy to use and portable.

Very Impressed

A perfect style for me and great display. Battery life is amazing and it does everything that I expected and wanted.

Thank you so much for your review of the Withings Scanwatch - we totally agree with you. It's a brilliant game changing hybrid smartwatch with ECG and SPO2 measuring capability!

Easy connection to Smart phone

These scales were purchased because the previous scale were so difficult to connect to our Smartphone. We like to keep track of our weight loss program without needing to manually enter data. These scale connected first time to the iHealth app and have continue to sync data. Great product.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review the iHealth NEXUS Body Composition scale. Having all your body composition metrics automatically synced to the iHealth app (and to Apple Health and Google Fit) is definitely fantastic.

Oximeter

Easy to use quick reading love how it can be stored on phone

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the iHealth AIR Wireless Pulse Oximeter. Super convenient and easy to use. Having the readings recorded on the iHealth MyVitals app is fantastic. Knowing that it is TGA approved / medically certified gives you confidence that this is a high quality pulse oximeter.
