All of its health related data can be seen on the companion app on your smartphone. While the heart rate monitor on the Apple Watch checks how fast your heart is beating, the ECG checks the electrical activity of your heart.
Because there's no screen, the Move ECG records on the watch and synchronizes the metrics with an iOS or Android app. Withings says that the ECG functionality is now under review by the FDA. Like previous Withings watches, it also connects with Apple Health and Google Fit.
Last September the Apple Watch Series 4 was the first consumer device capable of taking ECG readings, now, hot on Apple's heels, Withings has released a more traditional looking, and more affordable, alternative.
The benefit of having an ECG sensor attached to your wrist is that you can closely monitor the rhythm of your heart, and in extreme cases, detect any irregularities. This means that until the FDA approval comes through, Withings won't be able to market the device's ECG feature set in the USA as well as it could with an approval. That watch couldn't do a whole lot more than count steps, so clearly a lot has changed in four years. Withings says Move ECG offers 12-month battery life, which bests the Series 4 by about 363 days.
If, however, you need more serious monitoring, the Withings BPM Core will be the one you want to have with you. The device, which will be available later in the year, works like a self-inflating inflating blood pressure cuff: Just place it on the upper arm, push the start button, and then the device displays your heart rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurements on an LED screen. The high-end Move ECG is priced at $129.95 and should be available in the second quarter of 2019. The stethoscope's microphone records what it hears for later playback in the Health Mate app.
For anyone concerned about their heart health, either because of family history or other risk factors, the BPM Core could be the early warning system they need.
The watch is 50-meter water resistant, measures steps and sleep, tracks elevation, and has a one-year battery life (it's not clear if the watch has a replaceable battery or recharges, but it might be the former).
Like Withings wearables of yesteryear, the Move ECG has an analog face but includes most of the smart technology inside that you'd expect from a modern wearable. That model, which is available to preorder now and starts shipping February 5, is a more direct successor of the Activite.
The watch itself is a similar style to the Withings Steel HR, but it comes in a variety of bold colors, including a black version.
