Nokia has made an attempt to dive into the wearable sector with the announcement of a smartwatch, health and fitness gadgets including a weighing scale, blood pressure monitor, and a sleep tracker. These products will be officially launched in the month of September this year.
The devices will come at affordable prices – varying from £40 ($50) to £170 ($125). Nokia will provide the user with different watch straps, giving customers a finite number of choices. The company dubbed three gadgets as The Go, The Steel, and The Steel HR.
The Go consists of simple activities and a sleep tracker, but it is not compatible with the new weighing scales and blood pressure monitor. It looks similar to a Fitbit wearable. In comparison to other smartwatches, ‘The Go’ is the cheapest of all available devices at the price of £40 ($50).
The Nokia Steel consists of a traditional watch face but is featured sleep and activity tracking. This smartwatch can also sync with the custom phone app and also be connected to Nokia’s matching scales and pressure monitors, which users will have to purchase explicitly. The battery of the gadget will survive for almost a year and to be available at £120
The Steel HR:
The Steel HR is similar to The Steel except that it looks classy and is equipped with various features such as a heart rate monitor ability to receive text, calls, and event alerts. It also consists of a sleep analysis cycle tool with a battery life of up to 25 days when fully charged. The Steel HR watch is priced at £170 ($215), which is costly for all three watches.
Nokia’s scales will cost around £60 ($76), while the blood pressure monitor is priced at £110 ($140).
