One of the surprise packages of this year’s show, the Withings Activité Pop arrived as a much cheaper version of the Activité, but with pretty much all of the same features. Yes, the sapphire crystal has been replaced with cheaper glass, and rubber straps have been preferred to the original’s leather ones, but that has barely even detracted from the overall look – it’s still far more attractive than most other smartwatches on the market.

In terms of features, both versions are almost identical. The battery lasts eight months, it’s waterproof to 30m and an accelerometer tracks movement, while the primary dial tells the time and an always-visible secondary one indicates how close to achieving your daily exercise goal you are. That, Samsung and LG, is how to make an affordable smartwatch.
