Withings has announced a new addition to its smartwatch collection, the ScanWatch Nova. This luxury version of the Scanwatch 2 hybrid smartwatch introduced earlier this year sports a traditional diver-style design and advanced health and activity tracking capabilities.

The ScanWatch Nova comes equipped with all the essential health features of the ScanWatch 2, including on-demand electrocardiogram, SpO2, 24/7 body temperature monitoring, advanced activity tracking, and detailed sleep analysis. It also claims a battery life of up to 30 days between charges.

The ScanWatch Nova is water resistant up to 50 meters and can be paired with Android and iOS devices, just like other Withings watches.

The watch features a rotating bezel made of ceramic and stainless steel, with laser-engraved markings that include standard codes of diving practice. The hands, indicators and indices of the watch are hollow and filled with lumina, making them visible even in low light conditions. The indices are thick and raised, making them easy to read.

The Scanwatch Nova also features a sundial and a mirror-polished stainless steel case. The display is protected by sapphire glass with anti-reflection coating, and information is displayed on a user-friendly OLED high-resolution grayscale screen. It’s a stunning piece of craftsmanship – one that makes even the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 look pedestrian by comparison.

According to Etienne Tregaro, Product Manager at Withings, “The luxurious timepiece has a powerful health scan built-in with all the cutting-edge innovations to improve your health, wrapped in a stylish aesthetic inspired by the timeless tradition of diver-style watchmaking “

The ScanWatch Nova, like its predecessor, the ScanWatch 2, offers a medical-grade electrocardiogram that can be used on-demand to detect potential heart anomalies, including atrial fibrillation. It also tracks fluctuations in body temperature during the day and night, which may indicate the onset of an illness. The watch can also measure blood oxygen level or SpO2 on demand. Values ​​below 90% may indicate poor blood oxygenation, also known as hypoxia.

Additional features include sleep tracking and traditional fitness parameters like steps, calories, altitude, and workout routes.

The ScanWatch Nova is now available for preorder on the Withings website. The $600 price tag includes a Shell bracelet that tapers from 20mm to 18mm, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. You can choose from three colors: blue, green, and black. The first shipment of watches is expected to arrive in mid-January.
