Wellograph fitness watches to include Windows Phone 8.1 support

Wellograph Premium Fitness Watch

Wellograph watches are a new line of premium fitness watches that features a heart rate monitor, activity tracker, pedometer as well as the date and time. The wearable device is due to ship sometime in June with an official app being available for Windows Phone 8.1.

The Windows Phone app will have Live Tile support to allow users to see data such as total steps and exercise scores on the Start Screen. The app itself will reflect your activity synchronized over Bluetooth from the Wellograph watch and offer expanded analysis.

The watch itself has a Pebble look about it but incorporates a Tri-LED Heart Rate Sensor into the soft spherical surface of the watch. The sensor replicates the action of a doctor using their fingertip to register your pulse. The Wellograph is waterproof up to 50 meters with the battery rated at two weeks of use per charge.

The Wellograph watch is currently available for pre-orders and will cost you $349 for the silver satin or black chrome models with shipping expected sometime in July. You can find out all the details on the Wellograph watch here at the Wellograph Website along with pre-ordering information.

It is nice to see wearable technology coming online with support for the Windows Phone platform. Hopefully, others will follow suit.

Oh, just in case you missed it, Mobile Nations has launched a new site dedicated to connected technology. If you're looking for a smartwatch, activity tracker or other wearable/connected gadgets check out Connectedly for all your wearable news and reviews.

Wellograph fitness watches to include Windows Phone 8.1 support

Very cool, but what's not?
WP8.1 developers preview. The most unstable WP OS officially released to the public by MS.... Especially after the update to the DP..... I can't wait for the official, official, update..

Almost no problems on my 1020.
My spare 820 has pretty rapid battery drain - but is otherwise stable
My mum's debranded 1020 is v.v.fluid - but does require a hard reset every 48 hours.
IMO, WP8.1 is surprisingly stable!

There will be the day that I see the usefulness of a smartwatch, but today is not that day. It looks nice though.

This is for people who put down their bongs, get off their asses, and exercise every day. A reliable heart rate monitor that isn't a chest strap is a huge bonus.

Implying bongs are an indicator of laziness. I have more smoking utensils than you can shake a doobie at and I enjoy exercising quite a bit. Let's not forget even Michael Phelps indulges in the devil's lettuce occasionally.

Just not getting the whole concept of smartphone watches, just not grasping it......... Now.... Full voice integration with smartphones and built in car audio systems enabling ALL features, that'll be cool connecting audio via aux connector showing displays to show your smartphone screen.... It's a bit of a pain scrolling through music library to select albums/artists, sure, ok if selecting playlists as most last for an entire journey..

ugly and pricey, just make a smart band to keep track of vitals, no need for it to mirror the same inf you will see on the phone anyway

Another gadget I would love to have but can't afford. As a cyclist, I see alot of usefulness to this coupling it with my phone.

This is a fitness watch, not a smart watch. It does not appear to have any kind of notifications like incoming phone calls, SMS text, emails, Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, etc. It does not appear to control the music on your phone remotely. Does  not appear to have installable watch faces or apps. For $349 this is a very pricey fitness band masquerading as a watch.

Wow... Seems pretty expensive for a sportswatch that doesn't include a GPS to track runs... Over 300$ for a step counter... I'll keep my Nike+ run watch, even though it doesn't sync with my phone, at least it's useful, and it's less expensive.

Here, let me help you:

 

"The Windows Phone app will have Live Tile support to allow users to see data such as total steps and exercise scores on the Start Screen. The app itself will reflect your activity synchronized over Bluetooth from the Wellograph watch and offer expanded analysis."

Time to start saving! Hopefully this sparks up other companies to offer support! If pebble does jump in soon I will be buying this!

I'm waiting for one by Microsoft however long that takes at least by then I know it will almost usable to have a smartwatch

Nice to see other companies are embracing the same type of tech that android users have such as the Galaxy Gear. Now hopefully this thing will push Microsoft to include similar health features for windows phone
