Withings Activité Steel and Pop drop in price, new features coming to Health Mate app
If you’ve been eyeing Withings’ Activité Steel or Pop fitness trackers, now may be the perfect time to buy.
The Activité Steel and Activité Pop have both dropped in price on Withings’ website, down from their respective prices of $170 and $150. Now you can pick up the Activité Steel for only $149.95, and the Activité Pop for just $129.95.
In our full review, we told you that the Activité Steel is a great value for what is offers. It has amazing battery life, a beautiful design, it’s comfortable, and it’s waterproof (something that isn’t offered on all fitness trackers). We ended up recommending the Steel at its original $170 price point, so now that it’s $20 less, you should definitely consider picking one up if you’re in the market for an attractive, minimalist fitness tracker.
We should note that both devices are also available on Amazon. There you can find the Activité Steel for the same $150 price, and you can even get a better deal on the Activité Pop than what’s offered on Withings’ website.

Withings has also announced that a few new features are on their way to the Withings Health Mate app. Users will now be able to manually add activities like pilates, dancing and wind surfing. After adding your custom activity, the Health Mate algorithm will then automatically calculate the number of calories burned based on your intensity level and personal information. Also, the Health Mate alarm is now a smart alarm – it can now wake you at the best time in your sleep cycle instead of only going off at a set time.
As of right now, these new features are only available in Health Mate for iOS app. Withings says the update is coming soon to the Android version, but we’re not sure of an exact date at this time.
