Despite great critical review, the watch's price tag kept the average consumer away and the company will look to try to remedy that situation with the release of the Activité Pop, a mostly scaled-down version of its more expensive brother but with all the same perks.
The Pop still looks attractive as a wearable, and could easily pass as a casual watch in all three colors (beige, blue and gray) and Withings has already promised more band styles. For $150, the watch has a silicone band and PVD coated stainless steel casing with mineral glass compared to the $450 watch's calf leather band, stainless steel case and sapphire glass.
Just like its brother, the watch tracks your steps, monitors your sleep and vibrates to notify you when you've reached your goals. On the watch face, there is a 0-100 indicator letting you know how you are progressing every day. The phone syncs with your iOS device for the time being. The watch is water resistant up to 30 meters and comes with a watch battery that lasts 8 months, meaning no need for a daily charge.
