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.
