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.
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

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.
