ScanWatch Horizon combines iconic diver watch design with breakthrough health tech. Nested in a high-end watch, state-of-the-art medical technology has been carefully selected to create the most health-oriented watch ever offered to the public. Developed with cardiologists, and clinically validated, this is our first hybrid smartwatch that can take a clinically validated ECG and SpO2 measurement and track breathing disturbances. ScanWatch also offers in-depth activity and sleep tracking, water resistance to 100m, and an exceptional battery life of up to 30 days before it needs to be charged.Withings

more elasticated, rubberised wristband for sports usage. In addition, it has an impressive 30-day
battery life and 10 ATM water resistance, making it the perfect accessory for swimming, snorkelling,

Horizon is the latest hybrid smartwatch in the Withings ScanWatch range, which also includes the
original and Rose Gold versions. Each version has health, wellness, and fitness capabilities, that
were developed by experts and validated in multiple clinical trials.
“The luxury design and robust health features of ScanWatch Horizon are a great compliment to the
existing ScanWatch line and we are delighted to bring it to the U.S.,” said Mathieu Letombe, CEO of
Withings. “Sophisticated health devices that monitor advanced vitals do not have to look like hospital
equipment. With the original ScanWatch, the elegant Rose Gold version, and now ScanWatch Horizon,
we have a style option to meet every fashion preference, social occasion, and budget.”
