Withings ScanWatch receives update with new automatic resting heart rate alert feature
Withings has released an update for its ScanWatch smartwatch, firmware 2651. Several new features are available for the wearable, including automatic resting heart rate alerts. This tool will notify the wearer if an unusual pulse is detected. Bidirectional syncing now enables you to push all recorded data, such as your step count and calorie consumption, to your ScanWatch, or any other Health Mate-enabled gadget. You can also trigger a notification when you hit your step goal and view a log over time.
Plus, a shortcut to Do not disturb lets you activate the mode with a long press following a notification. Lastly, the latest update enables you to set up to ten alarms. These new features will work alongside the existing tools on the Withings ScanWatch, such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor which can detect atrial fibrillation or an unusual heart rhythm. With the wearable, you can also track your blood oxygen (SpO2) levels, exercise, and sleep quality. The device has up to 30 days of battery life and a durable sapphire glass-protected watch face.
Customers have hotly anticipated the new software following that last update in March. The firmware is being rolled out over the course of the next few weeks and will be available via the Health Mate app. Withings has said it will provide a further update when all customers have access to the update.
