Its standout features encompass:
The Ultimate Health Enhancer:
● On-Demand Medical-Grade Electrocardiogram: The ScanWatch Nova offers on-demand medical-grade electrocardiograms to detect potential heart anomalies like atrial fibrillation, a prevalent form of arrhythmia characterized by irregular heart rhythms. Since 2020, ScanWatch has identified nearly 2 million signs of AFib. In just 30 seconds, users can initiate an ECG reading through two built-in electrodes with a simple touch of the bezel, accessing live results on the Withings app.
● Early Indications of Illness: The ScanWatch Nova monitors fluctuations in day and night body temperature, potentially signalling the onset of an illness or other health conditions. It also aids in managing performance and recovery by tracking temperature variations during workouts. Integrating TempTech24/7 module technology, it combines miniaturized heat flux sensors and a high-accuracy temperature sensor along with heart rate and accelerometer input calibrations, delivering top-notch body temperature assessments.
● Respiratory System Assessment: Gain peace of mind with on-demand blood oxygen (SpO2) readings and overnight tracking of breathing disturbances. The watch also monitors average blood oxygen levels during sleep. Adequate blood oxygenation is crucial to supply energy to muscles during physical activities. A SpO2 value below 90% could indicate poor blood oxygenation or hypoxia.
● Enhanced Sleep Quality: ScanWatch Nova aids in achieving more restful sleep by tracking sleep quality and offering advice for improvement. Users wake to a Sleep Quality Score and can delve into detailed sleep metrics like phases, depth, duration, and interruptions along with guidance on enhancement.
● Activity Augmentation: Seamlessly track parameters such as steps, calories, elevation, and workout routes (via in-app connected GPS). The watch automatically recognizes over 40 daily activities like walking, running, swimming, and cycling. It also assesses Fitness Levels by estimating VO2 Max, showcasing the heart and muscle’s ability to convert oxygen into energy during physical exercise. Users can easily switch between the Oyster metal wristband and the FKM wristband (both included) for enhanced comfort during training sessions.
● Luxurious Diver Watch Design: Meticulously crafted with precision and acute attention to detail, the ScanWatch Nova epitomizes innovation. Its features include a ceramic and stainless-steel rotating bezel adorned with laser-engraved markings following the standard codes of diving practices. Equipped with full Luminova hollow watch hands, indicators, and thick raised indices, the watch ensures readability in low-light conditions. The Nova boasts a refined sunray dial, a mirror-polished stainless-steel case, and diver-inspired attributes. It is water-resistant at 10 ATM and flaunts a sapphire glass with an anti-reflection coating. This exquisite timepiece provides essential notifications through a user-friendly OLED high-resolution grayscale screen, ensuring clear readability.
● Phenomenal Battery Life: The ScanWatch Nova proudly showcases the iconic Withings 30-day battery life, allowing continuous health tracking without frequent recharging. Supplied with a USB-C cable, it can recharge fully within 2 hours, facilitating uninterrupted day-and-night tracking of health, activity, and sleep.
● Cutting-Edge Technology: Leveraging MultiWave PPG sensors and HealthSense, Withings’ proprietary operating system, the ScanWatch Nova tracks advanced cardiovascular vitals such as heart rate, heart rate variability, and ECG. It also measures SpO2, monitors breathing disturbances and tracks sleep patterns.
● Intuitive Withings App: Seamlessly sync the ScanWatch Nova with the Withings app, offering an elegant and user-friendly interface. The app allows users to customize the displayed information on the watch, from heart rate variability to steps walked and baseline body temperature variations. Additionally, users can set notification preferences for their preferred apps directly within the app. Through a long press on the dial, users can launch their preferred feature, while the ‘quick look’ option activates the watch display upon wrist lift. The app delivers personalized insights, trends, and recommendations to optimize users’ health journeys.
