Back in late 2014, French company Nevo unveiled its analogue fitness tracker watch - adding smart notifications to the activity tracking mix.

The new new Nevo Balade Parisienne edition has now arrived, adding four new styles to the range, while at the same time shaving some bulk off of the original.

The debut Nevo watch, which was an Indiegogo success story, measured in at 12.6mm thick, but the new collection brings the waistline down to 12mm.

The setup on the four new models - Tertre, Saules, Lepic and Ravignan - is the same as their predecessors. Essentially activity tracking hidden beneath the exterior of a stylish timepiece. The hands are powered by "Swiss movement" and the tracking extends to steps, calories, distance and sleep.

Unlike the popular Withings Activité range, smartphone notifications are also on offer, with the LED lights (which are also used to visualise daily goal completion) combining with a vibration motor to let wearers know of incoming call and message alerts.

Wareable verdict: Withings Activité Pop review

Battery life is touted at 3-6 months and the new Nevo collection is 5ATM water resistant, so it's suitable for swimming. It works with both iOS and Android.

Out at the end of February, costing $169 - the leather strapped, mineral glass timepieces certainly have the style smarts. We'll let you know if the activity tracking is up to scratch in our full review.
