Go Awards

SlashGear Best Wearable
“For less than the cost of a few month’s gym membership, Withings Go puts a fitness tracker on your wrist. It’s no ugly duckling, either, with a selection of durable but stylish rubber straps and clips, and a big E-Ink display that trades away neither battery life nor legibility…” — Chris Davies, SlashGear Best of CES 2016
Stuff CES Wearable Tech Awards 
“A single CR2032 button battery is enough to power the Withings Go for up to eight months, thanks to its super-efficient E-ink screen. It can be wrist-worn or clipped and tracks walking, running and sleep, syncing data with the Withings Health Mate iOS or Android app. It’s also waterproof, sensing when you’ve hit the pool and tracking time and calories during your swim.” — Fraser Macdonald, Stuff CES 2016 Wearable Winners Announced

Withings Go: Jump Into Activity Tracking

Early praise for Withings Go…

“…this is a big improvement for trackers on the lower end of the scale: there’s finally a display to look at! The Withings Go is pretty versatile in what it does; it automatically tracks steps, distance walked, calories burned and sleep — a feature typically deserved for more pricey trackers…the Withings Go appears to be one of the more advanced options in the price range… Withings has a track record of developing solid fitness hardware.”  Samantha Murphy Kelly, Mashable
“…you’ll be more interested in the Go for what it doesn’t do: Run out of battery. The Go will last as much as eight months without needing a recharge. That’s an entire NBA season. It survives that long because instead of a battery-draining LCD display, the Go opts for E Ink… And like an e-reader display, you can view it direct sunlight, a handy feature for a device that’s designed for people who spend a decent amount of time outdoors.”  Brian Barret, WIRED
“The Withings Go is a clip-on wearable that, unlike its rivals, comes with an E-Ink display that’ll keep you informed of your progress as you go about your day.” — Daniel Cooper, Engadget
“This new device tracks your steps, distance, running and swimming activity. You can also use it to track your sleep cycles. Compared to other entry-level activity trackers, you can do quite a lot. You don’t have to switch between activities — the device switches automatically.” — Romain Dillet, TechCrunch
“For professionals who aren’t impressed with the business style of smartwatches or traditional fitness trackers, the Withings Go could let them stick with a traditional watch—or no watch at all—while still getting the tracking data they want to stay on top of their health and fitness.”Teena Maddox, TechRepublic 
“The shape and size of a coin, it’s also absolutely adorable.” — Timothy Torres, PC Mag
