Withings today revealed its new Activité Pop wearable at CES 2015, which is an analog watch that contains advanced activity and sleep tracking capabilities. The Activité Pop is a follow up to Withings' Activité watch which was revealed last year, and comes with a lightweight design that features a swappable silicone strap, a body that is water-resistance for up to 30 meters, and a battery that lasts up to 8 months.

The watch contains two hand dials, with one hand dial showing the current time and a secondary hand dial tracking activity and progress as determined by Withings' Health Mate companion app. For example, if a user sets 10,000 steps as a goal in the app, the secondary hand dial moves as steps are made, and the watch vibrates when a goal is achieved. During the day, the watch can automatically track swimming and running and tracks sleep quality at night with all info available through Health Mate.

The Activité Pop will be available to purchase online in the United States from BestBuy.com on January 5th for $149.95, and will be available at Best Buy stores in March 2015. The watch will come in three color choices including "Azure", "Shark Grey", and "Sand."

If I wore a watch, this is something I would like. Not a fan of the too gimmicky look of Samsung and even Apple.

Editor: "silicone strap" - with an "e"?
Silicon is a nonmetallic element (number 14 on the periodic table) found in the earth’s crust. It is a major component in semiconductors, and its high conductivity makes it useful in solar power cells.

Silicone is is a class of synthetic polymers containing silicon together with carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. It is used in paints, adhesives, lubricants, and breast implants, among other applications.

As a collector of traditional watches, THIS is the wrist wearable that appeals to me the most in terms of aesthetics.

More information on the Official blog!

Yes, same diameter and stainless steel case as the Activite.

I'm surprised so many missed their original watch about 6 months ago. This is just a "sports" version of that.

I love the original and quite like this one as well.. The original in black really stands out as being very stylish and much fitting the suit in the office, and the silicone strap that comes in the box, is great for when you are going for a run.

This is the sort of smart watch I'd be interested in. An attractive piece of jewellery with discreet smart features.

Personally, I don't want a watch with an OLED screen that needs charging every night that shows me every single notification, the weather, stocks and shares, emails etc etc.

This watch caught my eye. Simple and straightforward. I like the goal-oriented nature of it.

I'm also curious - will it contribute to Health data on the iPhone?
