Withings Steel HR Sport marks the brand's big comeback with style and multisport tracking

Founded in 2008, Withings claims to have “paved the way for all hybrid smartwatches” with the “groundbreaking” 2014 launch of the beautiful Activité wearable. But the company didn't exactly thrive under Nokia's management between 2016 and 2018, prompting its original cofounder to buy back the business and revive the brand.
The Withings Steel HR Sport is now here to battle various fitness-centric devices from the likes of Fitbit and Garmin, combining an unquestionably stylish design with a fairly robust feature set.
Priced at a reasonable $199.95, the Steel HR Sport comes with ...

Withings couldn't have picked a more opportune time to make its return. With the Apple Watch Series 4 set to release in just a few days, interest in wrist wearables couldn't be higher, and to celebrate its re-arrival, Withings is launching a new Sport version of its popular Steel HR wearable. Apple fans are intimately familiar with the French maker of high-end devices such as scales, baby monitors, and sleep trackers, but for the past two years the company has been languishing under the Nokia Health umbrella with no new product to speak of.

Any time a smaller company is gobbled up by a larger one, you assume the worse. In the case of Nokia buying Withings, that's more or less what happened. First Nokia launched a handful of products under its own name and ultimately dropped the French health hardware company altogether.
Four months ago, one of Withings' co-founders bought the brand back from Nokia. And today, the innovative French hardware company returns with a new take on an old product. The Steel HR Sport. It's a welcome return for what had become one of my favorite fitness trackers, prior to the brand's untimely demise...
