    Nokia to Buy Withings for $191 Million

    Back when Microsoft’s deal to purchase Nokia’s handset division closed in 2014, we figured that Nokia was getting out of consumer electronics for good, content to relegate themselves to the arena of telecom network hardware. Looks like we were wrong. We’ve heard rumors that Nokia is planning to build their own handsets again, but this […]

    Withings Activité Steel Review

    With their Activité line of fitness trackers, Withings has taken a very different sort of approach toward wrist-worn wearables. Rather than rely on LCD or e paper displays, Withings has instead built regular, stylish analog watches first, adding light fitness tracker functionality on top of that.

    One of Our Favorite Wearables Just Got a Pink Edition

    When Withings launched the Activité Pop at CES earlier this year, we thought the color options were pretty neutral and understated. It looks like Withings is set to bring a little more pop to the Pop at IFA 2015, introducing a bright coral pink color option for the fitness tracker. The Withings Activité line stands […]

    Withings Activité is the Rolex of Wearables

    Withings may have just shown everyone who is boss when it comes to smart timepieces.

    The Withings Smart Baby Monitor lets you use your iPhone to check on your baby

    Baby monitors used to be fairly basic devices. They’d transmit noises from a transmitter to the receiver and you’d be able to tell whether your precious was cooing or crying. Welcome to the next evolution of the baby monitor, where your receiver can be any web connected device, including your iPod, iPad, eBook or computer. The Withings Smart Baby Monitor features a 3MP camera which transmits to any connected device, allowing parents to remotely check in on their progeny. They can access both video and audio data, as well as use the inbuilt microphone in the monitor to soothe their child remotely.

    The Smart Baby Monitor is more than just a camera though, as the device includes a whole bunch of extra features. Infrared LEDs give you access to night vision, and you can also check the temperature and humidity of the room to make sure that your baby is comfortable. You can also select music to play through the monitor (lullabies etc), and stream playlists to the Smart Monitor from anywhere in the world.

    You can even go one step further, and set up personalized alarms that alert you when there is unusual behaviour relating to their movements or temperature, based on certain parameters. The monitor is cubed shape, and you simply open it to use the functionality and snap it shut to turn it off.

    The Withings Smart Baby Monitor will be available in March 2011.
