looks like a traditional watch, not a massive kids toy or plastic bracelet like other fitness trackers.
very fast pairing and sync with mobile.
Heart rate seems to be spot on when compared to gym equipment and chest straps.
Great battery life.
all Metal design .
Minimalistic well designed app.
Only one repeatable alarm time
would prefer an even larger size of 44 – 48 mm
I work shifts that would make it impossible for me to wake up at the same time each day so multiple alarm times would be great.
The stock band is very comfortable, easy to clean and secure but somewhat cumbersome to take on and off your wrist because of the retainers. I have upgraded the band to a leather strap with a deployment buckle which makes the tracker look more upscale and easier to take on and off. I come from owning a Garmin vivoactive and replaced it with this type of tracker because I did not use any of the smart watch features on that device after the novelty wore off, and just wanted something that will track my activity, heart rate and sleep ,have a long battery life and not sit unused on a counter because I can’t get it wet or on a charger because the battery is dying yet again.
– I am a small female and the 34mm watch is the perfect size. I did not want the bulky-ness of its competitors. I would have actually preferred if the watch was even a little smaller. The band has proven to bit too long and the arm fastener does not keep it in place. The material of the band is really soft but it does catch a decent amount of lint over time. Overall very nice looking watch and extremely light and comfortable. It does not bother me at all when I sleep.
– The hour and minute hands are controlled automatically through the app. I had zero problems setting up the watch and have had zero issues with connectivity to my iPhone (running iOS 10).
– I have showered with the watch and had no condensation (as customers have experienced before Nokia bought Withings)
– Sleep tracking does not seem very accurate; so far has not been able to detect that I was awake despite pushing the button to check the time… EDIT: Even after 2 weeks of wear, the watch does not provide accurate sleep data
– Work out mode is not customizable from the start. I have to log the work out and change the type of work out within the app.
– Had a pattern of inability to check heart rate while in work out mode; as if it was going to measure but takes forever
– I workout about 30 mins every day. From afternoon fully charged to next-day morning after logging 30 min of exercise, 20% was drained. So I’m thinking that it would only last me 5-6 days (I was lazy this week and haven’t worked out all week).
– Too many screens to view summaries. For example if you want to see your heart rate, you have to cycle through and it shows a heart screen for a half of a second before it shuffles to the heart rate. They should just program it to go directly to the attribute rather than the filler screen.

So, suffice it to say I have been using QS (Quantified Self) fitness/wellness products from the early days of IoT including the Gen 1 Withings scales etc
With all that said, this is simply an extremely well thought out, well-designed, well executed and easy to use product. Despite all the Fitbit reviews and plethora of tracker choices, I intuitively felt this would be the right product and design for me. It definitely is.
It does not have a bunch of superfluous hard-core features you will never use, but for me, it has ALL the features I will always use! Steps, calorie burn, sleep, heart-rate, discreet vibration for notifications/phone calls, and best of all killer battery life.
It integrates with the elegantly designed and mature Health Mate App along with the excellent Body + scales (which I also own – a great combo). It just pairs instantly, easily and works simply without additional interaction or hours of frustration and tears. So many products don’t do this, I know…I have owned them. The box opening to actual use journey on this product is the shortest I have ever experienced and has been really well thought out.
Hats off to the Nokia/Withings team for seeing the need for an elegant timepiece with the fitness essentials and delivering a great-looking product with just the right balance of features/price that is not at all techy, clunky & pairs over Bluetooth first time seamlessly and the onboarding experience is effortless. I even synced it with a seldom used, several years old Withings profile from my generation 1 Withings scales and it imported that legacy profile fine too!
The only thing extra I personally would ever want is multiple alarms and multiple time zone clocks I could step through for monitoring my teams when traveling – I have to track 5 time zones ( California, Austin, London/UK, Tallinn/Estonia, Japan) , but this could be very easily added via software update. (**Please Nokia consider these features if you read these reviews which I know a good Product Manager does!) :))
