Posted on 28-Oct-2015 14:10

The Withings Activite brand of activity trackers offers a balance between functionality and fashion. They are simple and disguise its function well. And to me that's the main appeal of these pieces. Are they watches with activity tracking or activity trackers that can tell the time?... Comments (Comments)
