Withings ScanWatch Nova Review: The Ultimate Dive-Style Hybrid Watch Gets Even Better

In 2022, I reviewed the Withings ScanWatch Horizon. I called it the perfect combination of the chunky stainless diving-style watches that I love with the added benefit of accurate, advanced health-metrics tracking that even the most expensive diving-style watches can’t provide. Two years later, the Horizon has been refreshed as the Withings ScanWatch Nova. As you’ll see, the Nova is a very handsome hybrid smartwatch that gathers accurate health-tracking metrics while looking stylish. But, of course, Withings has added even more features to make the latest luxury ScanWatch even more compelling.


OnePlus Watch 2 Review: It’s Close to Android Smartwatch Perfection

Android users have long expressed frustration with the lack of compelling Wear OS smartwatch options compared to the seamless integration and features enjoyed by Apple Watch users through the iOS ecosystem. We’ve seen multiple companies try and fail at Android Watches for multiple reasons, including a lack of features or simply horrific battery life. The OnePlus Watch 2 aims to tackle these issues with a premium design that uses a dual-engine architecture with two flagship chipsets to optimize performance so the Watch 2 can deliver up to 100 hours of battery life in Smart Mode with full Google apps integration.


Garmin Recognizes Women Need Devices That Work as Hard as They Do!

Garmin is synonymous with excellence in GPS tracking for athletic activities. But also, when most people think of Garmin, they think of big, chunky running watches. It’s safe to say that most GPS watches aren’t designed for aesthetics first, but Garmin has some cool ideas up their (sweat-wicking) sleeves to make fitness tracking a lot more comfortable. First of all, if you’re someone who has ever had to wear a support garment under their shirt, you’ll know that chest straps can often get in the way of sports bras. Garmin is trying to solve that with the HRM-Fit. It’s designed…

Withings has introduced its latest hybrid smartwatch, the ScanWatch Nova.

It seamlessly blends stylish diver watch aesthetics with advanced health-tracking capabilities, making it perfect for those who love wearing this style watch but need something smarter to track their sleep, steps, heart rate, and much more.



Withings ScanWatch 2 and ScanWatch Light Will Offer Even More Exceptional Health Tracking Options

One of the best smartwatches I’ve ever used is the 43mm Withings ScanWatch; it tracks my sleep, steps, heart rate, SpO2, ECG, and much more. I rely on it so much that it only leaves my wrist for recharging about once a month. All that to say, I didn’t think there was much room or need for improvement, but of course, Withings has found a way. They’ve just introduced their second generation of ScanWatch, including the flagship Withings ScanWatch 2 and the attractively priced ScanWatch Light. Let’s take a look at these new watches and the features that they’ll offer.

Movano Evie Aims to Stylishly Quantify Women’s Health

It is hard to believe that it’s 2023 and women’s health is still not taken seriously, but that’s the reality in the medical world today.

Lenovo Glasses T1 Create a Comfortable, Wearable, Private Display

On the 9-hour flight from DFW to LHR Monday, I had a young child sitting next to me on the plane. Flipping through the available movies, I realized that the few that caught my interest might be too violent and slightly inappropriate for the little guy sitting next to me, so I read instead. However, if I had had the Lenovo Glasses T1, I could have privately enjoyed any movie I wanted without worrying about whether the action or images were appropriate for my seatmate.


Amazon Halo View Review: It Will Track Your Steps, Your Fitness, and Even Your Tone!

Smartwatches are everywhere, but that doesn’t mean there’s no niche for a dedicated fitness tracker. Sometimes, you want that laser focus on your health over every notification possible. Amazon thinks they can get a foot in the door with the Amazon Halo View. We’ve put it through its paces to see if it can compete for wrist space among some stiff competition. The Amazon Halo View is a delightfully lightweight companion. It comes in at around 21g, which is just slightly more than half the weight of an Apple Watch. It’s quite slim and doesn’t interfere with wrist movements when…



43mm Withings ScanWatch Horizon Review: A Dive Watch by Any Other Name Is Just a Dive Watch

There’s something so effortlessly fashionable about the chunky, utilitarian design of a traditional diving watch. But other than being able to withstand abyss-like pressures underwater, even the most expensive diving watches can’t do much more than tell the time and apprise the wearer of how long they’ve been underwater. The Withings ScanWatch Horizon, on the other hand, offers luxury dive watch design and features, but it is so much more than just a great-looking watch that is also water-resistant to 10ATMs.


Movano Ring Will Track Daily Health Data, Making It Easy to Understand and Giving Actionable Results

Are you looking for a health wearable that tracks more than steps and heart rate and that doesn’t require being worn on your wrist? The Movano Ring may be just the ticket. Correlating all of the data points gathered, including heart rate, heart rate variability, respiration, temperature, blood oxygen, steps, and calories to one another, allows the Movano Ring to give a more impactful level of understanding of how women’s daily activity affects their health.

43mm Withings ScanWatch Horizon Brings Luxury to Medical-Grade, Health Hybrid SmartWatches

Take a look at the watch on this guy’s wrist. At first glance, you’d think he was wearing a high-end Swiss diving watch, right? The Withings ScanWatch Horizon has all the features we expect to see in luxury dive watches, including a chunky stainless steel wristband, a laser engraved stainless-steel rotating bezel, and Luminova hollow watch hands and indicators with thick indices that glow in low light.
