90 Days with the Withings Activité Pop

This is going to be a different sort of review.  I had reached out to several of the brands who have already released connected/smart watches - but nobody responded to my request for a review.  So in the end I went out and purchased a Withings Activité Pop to conduct a 90 day review.

Without going into too much detail, a few months ago I personally experienced a bit of a neurological scare. Everything now appears to be okay, but as someone reaching what has been kindly referred to by others as "a certain age" I took this as an opportunity to focus my energies on a healthier approach, more sleep, increased activity, and with a move to the Boston area on the cards and a pursuit of activities in addition to cycling that will help better wire the brain to the body (tai chi), etc., this seemed like the perfect chance to put the promise of a connected watch to the test. And 90 days seems like a fair amount of time to get a real feel for how the connected watch will really perform and how it will (hopefully) positively impact my health.

So for the next 90 days, I will be channeling the spirit of the Hayek men wearing a watch on each wrist - a mechanical on the left, the Activité Pop on the right. I will provide an update every 10 days so that you will have 9 installments a final review 90 days from tomorrow.

90 Days with the Withings Activité Pop starts now.
