This is far more than a Smart Watch it could perhaps with careful use save your life. The original Smart Watches had some health details, a Scan Watch goes further and now the Scan Watch 2 is more like a doctors surgery on your wrist.

If you are new to Withings then download their App to your phone and then once you have an account just link the Scan Watch 2 to it.

If you already have a Withings account you just need to link your new watch to it and in a few minutes you can be going through its new features.

Its a big jump from a Smart Watch to the Scan Watch 2. In fact it is also a big jump from Scan Watch Light to Scan Watch 2.

The main features of the Scan Watch Watch 2 are divided into five main feature areas.

First is Round the Clock Health Tracking, this covers active minutes, steps, sleep quality score, workout zones, cardiac coherence exercises and elevation.

Second 24/7 Temperature Tracking with baseline and variation day and night, temperature zones during workouts, awake temperature zones and recovery temperature after workout these last two will come later.

Third is Heart Health Tracking with average heart rate, atrial fibrillation this via ECG recording on your wrist, high and low heart rate notification and overnight HRV.

Forth is Respiratory Insights with blood oxygen levels, breathing disturbance tracking and respiratory rate.

Fifth Menstrual Cycle Tracking on the watch and in the App.

The case is 42mm across, the main watch looks like most others with clear time reading near the base a second hand that tells you your step count as an amount of your set level. Near the top another area which a single press of the button on the watches right side will show the time and day date highlighted. However this is only the start as a small turn of the button starts various detailed moments and there are a total of eleven different areas.

The App will talk you though getting the best information out of it, spend some time working things out and then take your first ECG by just linking your thumb and finger round the watch, once you have done it once its easy to repeat you get a basic answer almost at once with a more detailed answer transferred to the App.

While this far from cheap it can give you important information that would take far longer to gather at your health centre in fact it might never be gathered as you would be sent to various destinations over time, should there be that much time....

Most watches that offer health help need to be recharged in a few days or less this is a monthly job taking less than an hour to recharge.

Young and old alike can benefit from the information in the Smart Watch 2.

The Withings Scan Watch 2 is available from Amazon priced at £349.95.

Mor information can be found on the Withings website.
