Withings’ Steel Hybrid Smartwatch logs sleep
Amazon is offering the Withings Steel Hybrid Smartwatch for $85. That’s around $20 off the typical rate there and the best offer we’ve tracked since February.

My wife has been wearing this watch for well over a year now and only recently had to change the battery, confirming that Withings’ claims are true.
