To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love the looks of this watch but could have saved a lot of money as the accuracy is shockingly bad. After being out on a city break I never achieved my goal of 10000 steps, not once. Very inaccurate and considering buying a different watch as it’s very frustrating. I counted my steps myself and figured out that my watch only counted half of them. Very annoyed to say the least…. There are better options out there!! Don’t buy!!
I bought this watch to track fitness activity and overall health progress but I wanted a watch that looked like your standard watch -- not a square smartwatch. I found Withings and thought their ScanWatches were beautiful, and reading that they tracked the basics, I decided to purchase.
After using the watch for four days, I noticed that my daily caloric burn was crazy low, compared to what I used to burn from my FitBit (which I know over-reports calorie burning).
!! Withings does NOT take your heart rate into account when calculating calories burned during a workout !!
I contacted their support to find out more about this and they also said they do not report any calorie burning for non-reported activity; ie if I were to walk around my house doing light chores, that would not be counted as calorie-burning. I found this frustrating because on rest days where I did not work out, the watch told me that I only burned 1300 calories (even if I did get out of the house to run errands, so it should have been higher). Multiple TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) calculators said I should be burning 1650-1750 calories on rest / sedentary days.
I found the sleep data and my heart rate data to be accurate, but in terms of actually accounting for calories burned this product is a failure.
DO NOT GET THIS WATCH if you need something to estimate how many calories you burn during work outs for CICO or any other calorie deficit weight loss programs.
If you need it to see what time it is and how many steps you've taken today, then by all means spend $300 on something you can buy for $50.
It doesn’t work and the company support number has been deactivated lol. I called Amazon support and THEY called the company support number and they told me the number was deactivated. It makes you complete tutorials to activate it but I followed the tutorial instructions and yet it never took the measurements. It’s an expensive garbage widget so save yourself the return process and don’t buy it.
