New Withings ScanWatch Rose Gold keeps you healthy while looking good


French health-tech manufacturer Withings continues to impress with its range of clinically validated smart devices that track your vital statistics - and with style too, as evidenced by the latest Rose Gold model ScanWatch to hit our shores.

If you've not heard of Withings there's no doubt you'll be hearing about them more and more. The company is headquartered in France, manufacturing and distributing innovative connected medical devices worldwide. Withings - pronounced “WITH-things” has pioneered digital health, releasing the world’s first Wi-Fi scale in 2009, an FDA-approved blood pressure monitor, a smart sleep tracking system, a smart thermos, and the ScanWatch range of activity tracking watches.

The ScanWatch is Withings' most advanced hybrid smartwatch and was the first smartwatch available in Australia that was clinically validated with ECG technology. It’s now available in a brand new colour, with the new rose gold model hitting Australia’s shores.

iTWire has been using the ScanWatch for ourselves. As you'd expect, it tells the time but it is so much more. It is clinically validated for medical accuracy and tracks heart rate, irregular or high or low heartbeats, breathing disturbances, electrocardiogram, oxygen saturation, steps, and distance walked - yes, even in COVID-19 lockdown you can be spurred on to keep fit, metabolic calories and total calories expenditure, automatically detected running duration and distance, automatically detected swimming duration and calories burned, sleep interruptions, deep and light sleep phases, and elevation both in metres and floors.


Breathe mode guides you to focus on your breathing for one minute to help you refocus and relax, something now more important than ever in such uncertain times.

The watch can also detect atrial fibrillation (a fast and irregular heartbeat) and overnight breathing disturbances, as well as measure oxygen saturation (normal levels vital for maintaining tissue health). You can’t put a price on health, whether yours or your loved ones. With the ScanWatch’s feature set and clinical quality, you can rest easy.

There's a lot going on, and the ScanWatch is checking you out every second. It’s also your all-in-one smartwatch because it can show you customised calls, text, calendars, and app notifications.

The new rose gold colour looks tremendous too, turning the watch into something already aesthetically pleasing into a real stylish piece that attracted attention as I went about my business in meetings and in stores.

The ScanWatch operating systems agnostic, working equally well with iOS and Android. The free companion Health Mate app syncs with both Apple Health and Google Fit, and also combines data from your other Withings devices in one place. Really, this is an ideal smartwatch that works equally well no matter the ecosystem you’re plugged in to, and without limiting your future phone choices.


In fact, the ScanWatch carries an astounding 30 days battery life between charges giving you 24x7 health monitoring. You won’t find competing smartwatches with the same features and battery life.

The new ScanWatch Rose Gold has an RRP of $499, has a battery life of 30 days, monitors heart rate and breathing, counts steps, records workouts, and does so much more - while looking good too.
