Nokia Shows Off New Withings Smart Products at CES 2017

Withings, part of Nokia, has announced the launch and availability of several new smart products at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Withings will power the new Kérastase Hair Coach, the world’s first smart hairbrush offering consumers a data-driven way to take better care of their hair.

Withings is also announcing the launch of Home Plus, an upgrade to its home monitoring system and one of the first security cameras compatible with Apple HomeKit. The company also announced the global availability of Steel HR, the first analog activity-tracking watch with heart rate monitoring.

The Kérastase Hair Coach, powered by Withings, is the world’s first smart hairbrush. Developed in collaboration with L’Oréal’s Technology Incubator, the brush features Withings’ advanced sensors and seamless product design along with L’Oréal’s patent-pending signal analysis algorithms to measure the quality of hair and the effects of different hair care routines.

An accompanying mobile app provides additional insights and modifications to how the hair is brushed that can help avoid hair damage and improve hair care routine. Retailing for under $200, the brush will be available mid-2017 at Kérastase hair salons and the brand’s website, and through Withings’ online sales and distribution channels.

The brush is a recipient of this year’s International CES Innovation Award, which celebrates outstanding product design and engineering in new consumer technology products.

Withings Home Plus is the latest version of the award winning Home product, a smart HD camera that offers live streaming to your smartphone, tablet, Apple watch or Apple TV. Home Plus is a beautifully designed HD camera and one of the first security cameras compatible with Apple HomeKit. Home Plus can be used to keep an eye on your home, send notifications in case of unusual noise or movement, monitor indoor pollution or watch your baby with advanced baby monitoring features. It works with the free Withings Home app (iOS & Android) and Apple Home app on iOS.

Withings Home Plus boasts the same sleek design and seamless video streaming to your smartphone, but now includes extended capabilities thanks to Apple HomeKit support. Withings Home Plus is the perfect start to your smart home automation offering multiple sensors and the ability to create scenes within Apple HomeKit. Withings Home Plus will be available for $199 in Q1 2017.

Withings Steel HR, a connected health watch with fully-featured activity tracking, heart rate monitoring and smartphone notifications, will be globally available January 4 through Withings.com and retail stores. Steel HR balances a fitness tracker and classic timepiece, allowing users to get the most up-to-date health tracking information without compromising on style.

In addition, the watch now features new tracking capabilities with automatic activity recognition for up to 10 new activities. Supported activities in this update include tennis, ping pong, squash, badminton, weightlifting, basketball, soccer, volleyball, dance, and boxing. Plus, over 30 activities can be logged manually. When Steel HR detects a new activity, it asks the user what it was. The tracker will then learn the user’s previously unrecognized activities and be able to automatically detect supported activities.

Steel HR will be available in two sizes: 36mm, which will retail for $179.95 and 40mm, which will retail for $199.95.
