You've no doubt heard of the Névo smartwatch - a Withings Activité rival that hides fitness tracking into a regular looking watch. Now the French company has another model up its sleeve, the Wiko Watch, which has just been announced at MWC.

The device is the result of a partnership between Névo and Wiko Mobile, who are another French company; one that specialises in budget smartphones.

The Wiko Watch is a neat looking wearable that hides the digital goodies behind a regular analogue watch face.


Unlike the Activité and the new Mondaine Helvetica No 1 Smart, there's no dial to keep user's updated with their step goal progression - instead the Wiko Watch uses a LED lighting system, much like the Fitbit Flex. These LEDs also light up to alert of smartphone notifications likes texts and incoming calls.

Step stats are detailed in an accompanying app - iOS or Android - and there's calorie counting and sleep monitoring on offer too.

Budget option: Withings Activité Pop review

The battery life is a decent 6 months with tracking turned on. You can turn the activity aspects off and extend the lifespan to 4 years but what would be the point on that?

Out in April, the Wiko Watch will cost €129 and it comes in three colours - red, turquoise and black.
