Very satisfied with this watch so far
Unfortunately, my Withings Go has stopped working. This Move is a very good successor watch. If you are looking for a smartwatch, a Move is not a good choice. However, if you are looking for a comfortable, simple watch with small additional functions such as a pedometer, cycling, swimming, sleep monitoring, and in connection with the app - recording routes with GPS, training modes, etc. Then this watch is a good choice. But what is extremely important to me is that this watch does *NOT* have a rechargeable battery. Instead, it has a replaceable battery like a normal wristwatch. This lasts at least 6 months and can therefore be worn at all times, even overnight. So no constant charging is necessary and the constant carrying of charging equipment is eliminated when you are on the go. In short, I am completely satisfied with this watch. It looks very good, in my opinion (not bulky, huge show-off watch), and is very light and comfortable to wear.

Ideal for those who don't want to think about charging.
This is my second move. I bought the black model in July 2019. I replaced the battery several times, but the difference in strength between the cover, case, and glass (actually plastic resin) caused cracks and made it look bad, so I replaced it. (At this point, it still works as a tracker.) I don't expect it to be waterproof. The product is probably dead stock because the store is almost gone. I bought it because this color happened to be available. The service battery life is unknown. However, it's great that I can use it for about 8 months without thinking about charging the battery. It's also easy to read as a watch, and since the hands are physical, I can tell the time immediately. Anyway, it's nice that it looks like a watch but works as a tracker. I plan to replace the silicone band with a NATO belt. The theme behind buying it was to track my sleep, so it's essential to know how many hours I slept in total to keep my health in check. Actually, I cheated on it with Fitbit and bought one, but I found that their app is difficult to use without paying for a subscription, and I found that I couldn't use it without bridging an app from a company I've never seen before to work with Apple's Health Care app (octopus pot situation). The more I used it, the harder it was to leave, and I was desperate to unsubscribe, so I immediately removed it and bought this one. If the Apple Watch becomes a little lighter and more sophisticated as a watch, or if it has the desired features in a few years, I think it will be enough to get by with this one. Withings, please keep the move series going! (Although it doesn't seem very motivated...)

good looking for my wife
My wife is a non tech person, this watch is perfect for her, for the next reasons:1.-she never would remember charge the watch every week (it have a battery for 18 months)2.-she never would use a watch without numbers (easy readable)3.-she never would use a watch than take off for take a shower4.- she is non tech person but she have an iPhone, and the app is easy to read.5.-She loves the colour, the watch is better in person.

Battery dead. No access to change and test
You get what you pay for.Will see if the battery store can fix.

Battery already empty!
Bought the watch on April 9th, 2022 and now the battery is already empty!

Plastic instead of glass so scratched easily
The watch face is plastic which is great for weight but scratches very easily. Screen protectors are a must for this watch. But I still love it!

Battery replacement completed
At first, the battery was replaced in a few months, but after the battery replacement, it lasted for more than six months. Even without knowledge, you can replace the battery yourself. I put the battery in and closed the lid, but it didn't work, and when I tried again, it worked. The alarm is very convenient, but it's a shame that only up to three can be registered. I purchased the pink one, but dust gets in between the lid and the body and stands out. Since it is made of plastic, not glass, it also gets scratched. I purchased a different belt. I purchased it for 3,000 yen, but I am basically very satisfied.

More features would have been nice.
It was disappointing that only steps and sleep could be measured. The step count doesn't feel accurate.
22/05/2022 | anonymous
The power has been off since opening. Contacted the seller but they didn't know if it was the battery or a malfunction. They asked for a return, but it's a hassle to do so. Hmm...

Healthcare company first technology company second
I have used Withings products for over a decade. Always dependable, easy to use, and I trust them with my healthcare information.
08/02/2022 | anonymous
Simple and good
It measures various things without operating, so it's easier compared to other smartwatches. However, the battery ran out and stopped working within a month of purchase.
04/02/2022 | anonymous
good product, but scratches easily
I got this as a simple replacement to my apple watch which i only used as a fitness tracker. overall I am very happy with it, but it fell during the first week of use and the outer glass got a scratch.

Simple and usefull
Perfect for those counting steps and calories, and wanting a classic look

When I tried to synchronize my watch and smartphone, they wouldn't connect. I exchanged them and they connected. Was it a display product to begin with?
13/01/2022 | anonymous
A proper wristwatch
First of all, the design is good and even when used in midsummer, the belt does not smell bad. There is an image that the casing is cheap because it is made of resin. As for the windshield, it is made of resin like Oris, but there is no particular problem and it looks like a wristwatch, unlike the common smartwatches. I am very satisfied with it. However, I think it would have been easier to see at night if they had painted each hand with fluorescent paint. The battery life is okay, but if you use a lot of alarms or training, it will run out quickly. If you mainly use it for business or time functions without using various modes, this type is recommended.
12/01/2022 | anonymous
Does not start
I thought of it as a Christmas present, but no matter how many times I tried, the power did not turn on before the battery life and synchronization with the app. The appearance is nice, so it's a shame, but I will return it.
30/12/2021 | anonymous
Good because it's cheap
As a wearable device, I was surprised that it was cheap but from a reliable manufacturer.
23/12/2021 | anonymous
Time started to go crazy in 6 months.
Although it was comfortable to wear and waterproof, I noticed one day that the time was off, and since then, the time has been drastically off. It's a shame because it didn't need to be charged and was convenient to check the time.
20/12/2021 | anonymous
Great design. Not so accurate.
This is my third one. I had the Pop and I loved it. I could wear it swimming and it had a sleek design. Not sure why they changed it to the Move. This is my second Move. Not as sleek in design.They only last about two or three years until you keep changing the battery and it keeps dying. I just love the design so much I keep buying them. My phone tracks way more steps than the watch. They couldn’t give a good explanation why. Still I buy and wear.

Device malfunctioned right after the 1-year warranty expired
I bought it to keep track of my steps and sleep time with the watch feature, but after a year, the hour hand stopped moving and I couldn't tell the time. I tried changing the battery and adjusting the time through the app, but the hand wouldn't move no matter what I did, and resetting it didn't help either. The activity tracker function still works, but since I can't tell the time, I have to use another watch, which defeats the purpose of buying it. I liked the battery life, but ultimately, it's a disposable device after a year of use.

Plastic junk easily broken
I loved the look of this tracker and I was careful not to scratch it since 70$ is a lot for me. I knocked it off of a low dressing table (2 feet off the wood floor) and it disintegrated. They will not give me my money back but offered me 50% off another one. No thanks. If it’s that fragile I don’t want another one. I read a complimentary review in Wired magazine on this watch and thought I was buying a quality watch. I only wore it for a few months and now I’m out 70$.

It has become cheaper~~~
I was curious why only battery comments were written in the comments, but I understood it after actually purchasing it. Unlike the previous Withings watch, the reset hole is gone, and the reset & battery replacement tool is no longer included. In the first place, battery replacement for waterproof watches cannot be done at a local watch store (I wonder why), and I think it will be refused even if I bring it in. I originally enjoyed replacing batteries as a hobby, so when I met Withings about 10 years ago, I thought it was kind to have a tool included! Softbank used to have a dealership, so there may have been introductions, but what about now? If you consult with a store that can handle diver's watches properly, will they accept it? I myself replace the battery by fitting the packing with silicone together with the battery replacement tool set. The first watch I bought is still active. Anyway, it has become cheaper~~~.
18/11/2021 | anonymous
The day after it arrived, I was asked to replace the battery. Moreover, I was told to request it at a specialty store, not to replace it myself. In reality, it has not been used for more than an hour. It's the worst. Postscript: I heard that there is a reference video on YouTube for battery replacement, but even after replacing it with the specified battery, it doesn't work. It was like throwing money down the drain.
13/11/2021 | anonymous
I tried the watch for several days, my conclusion: The design is appealing, but the step count and sleep analysis are very inaccurate and the watch doesn't offer much more. Fortunately, the return was unproblematic.
29/10/2021 | anonymous
Really good watch, etc
This watch foes what it says it does. Really handy for basic monitoring. Looks good, is light weight and very comfortable. Very -leased
29/10/2021 | anonymous
・I bought this product because I'm not good at digital display of design smart watches and I like the dial design of ordinary watches. It is a size that is not too big even for women's arms, and as other people say, it is very light and does not bother me even during exercise. It is very simple with only short and long hands and the achievement rate of the daily step goal, without a second hand, and I like it. If I have one order, I am worried that the surface is easily scratched. ・As an activity meter, I swim and do light aerobics, but it detects it automatically after about 15 minutes. It's fun to check at the end of the day with the app. It's a shame that it doesn't measure heart rate, but I'm personally satisfied with recording roughly rather than recording in detail. ・I don't think the sleep measurement is very reliable. Sometimes it says I was sleeping soundly even though I woke up once. But I measure it because it's interesting. ・I feel like the battery lasted for almost a year after I bought it. I went to a nearby watch shop and had it replaced. There were no particular problems. It's convenient to run on batteries because charging is troublesome. ・Other vibration alarms are surprisingly comfortable and I like them. The app UI is also simple and good. However, there are few apps that can be linked, and only Apple Health Care is linked. (There are other apps that can be linked for those who run.) Sometimes the time is off, so I remember to adjust the clock with the app. It's not particularly difficult, so I don't feel it's a problem. Those who value accuracy may need to be careful. It is not an exaggeration to say that I chose it for its design and price. I don't think it's recommended for those who want to measure their exercise and sleep accurately, but for those who want to know roughly the daily exercise and are not good at the appearance of smart watches and don't need notifications or extra functions, it is recommended.

Pros and cons, not recommended for everyone
The app worked on iPad and Pixel4 (android11). As a product, it is good that it does not need to be charged every day and that it is possible to check the time instantly due to the needle-based time display. The appearance is cheap, but it seems to be more durable than it looks. On the other hand, I think there are some problems such as the difficult registration of the app and the fact that it does not immediately cooperate with GoogleFit. If the app is easy to use, it can be recommended, but currently it is not quite there.
15/09/2021 | anonymous
Low sensitivity of step count
The design is good. However, the sensitivity of the step count is low in daily life, and it only recognizes about 60% of my walking. There may be individual differences. If I liked this, I was thinking of buying a higher model, but I don't feel like buying it now that I know about this low sensitivity.
07/09/2021 | anonymous
Better buy a new one
It was a refurbished watch. Did not sync with the required App so it was returned
04/09/2021 | anonymous
Cheap but useful
I mainly use it for sleep tracking. As I tend to have insomnia, it's reassuring to be able to grasp the trends with this device. The data is fairly accurate, but since I put it on my arm just before going to bed, the time I fall asleep is always off and needs to be edited. I stopped using it for walking records because another app is more user-friendly. I replaced the battery for the first time today. The cover was difficult to open, but after inserting a screwdriver and forcing it open, it was easy to replace and restore. It looks cheap, but since I don't use it in public, it's sufficient for me.
25/08/2021 | anonymous
Battery was changed by myself
As mentioned in the review that the battery life is poor, the time became erratic within less than 5 months. So, I tried to replace it by myself. I searched for withingsmove batteryreplacement on YouTube and it was easy to proceed as shown in the video. However, I feel that the direction of the battery should be with the side where the letters are written facing upwards. After replacing it, there was no response even after pressing the button, so I opened it again and reversed the direction, then it was okay. After that, I had trouble pairing, but it can be resolved by restarting or initializing.

Works with my weight watchers app. Love it. Tracks my steps, exercise, sleep, etc.

Cheap but good
Works well actually. Feels and looks cheap. It’s also a bit hard to read the face. Maybe don’t go for the black
07/07/2021 | anonymous
Great watch for step tracking
4 stars because the face is easily scratched and water can get in. Otherwise perfect for step tracking.

Simple and minimalistic👍
Helps with sleep...I haven't used it much, but it's interesting to see the display of light sleep and deep sleep. Battery life...I entered the "battery save mode?" after about a month of purchase. I thought, "Huh? It should last for several months, right?😳" but I guess it can't be helped since it may have been sleeping in the warehouse since it was manufactured. The battery that came with it was made by TOSHIBA. The CR2430 button battery was sold at home appliance stores, so it's not a problem. However, when I removed the back cover to replace the battery, I used a thin minus screwdriver to pry it open, so the plastic body got scratched quite a bit😢. Should I take it to a watch shop to have it replaced? For training...I'm okay with just measuring my steps for now, so this is enough. It automatically tracks walking, running, and cycling without any special operation, so it's easy😌. You can also start the dedicated app and use your smartphone camera to measure your heart rate, but I hardly use it. I bought this product because I fell into a plan at a certain life insurance company that said, "If you exercise regularly, you'll get a 15% discount on your insurance premium!". The life insurance company's app was compatible with Apple Watch, Fitbit, Garmin, Polar, Suunt, Galaxy, and Withings. After comparing them based on the points of being as simple, cheap, and easy to use as possible, I chose this product. I don't like it when it's too bulky, and it's a hassle to charge it frequently😒. Of course, it would be more interesting if it had GPS or could measure blood oxygen saturation, but as an introduction to smartwatches, I'm quite satisfied😄. One thing I'm not happy about is that there is no Japanese support when I try to contact them. If you purchase it through SoftBank, you can communicate in Japanese through them, but otherwise...💦. When I changed my smartphone, the watch and app didn't sync, but I was able to solve the problem by referring to the "Frequently Asked Questions" on the Withings website, so it was good😅.
20/06/2021 | anonymous
I love my watch. I bought the matching leather strap because it looked a bit cheap with the silicone band. It works well. It has only happened once that it couldn't read my movements. I'm really satisfied with the watch.
21/05/2021 | anonymous
Nice watch but not for me
Nice looking, good style but disappointed that I could only check heart rate in the app. Took 5 attempts to pair watch to app. Fit not quite comfortable. Returned watch.
19/05/2021 | anonymous
very nice item
17/05/2021 | anonymous
Uncomfortable and not simple
I did not like this. The pairing was difficult to do and it was uncomfortable on my wrist. Something about the material and the spacing on the notches were not working with me. It was either to loose or to tight on my wrist. For these reasons I do not wear it.
07/05/2021 | anonymous
Value beyond the price!
It's great to be able to measure the quality and duration of sleep by linking it with an application!
30/04/2021 | anonymous
I like it because it is light and the battery lasts a long time. This is my third one in this series. As for recording sleep, I used to wear it all the time, but since I got a heat rash on my wrist in the summer, I take it off to sleep. I think the measurement itself is accurate. As a pedometer, it seems to be checked more strictly than other pedometers, as it doesn't count unless I walk properly.
28/04/2021 | anonymous
Case not durable
Watch quit after 4 months, case cracked and allowed water to get into watch. I will be returning hoping to get replaced as I liked the watch when it worked.
23/04/2021 | anonymous
All three replacements only lasted about a month on battery
The battery life is really poor. It completely stops working after about 1-2 months. Since the 1-month period for Amazon's response has passed, I contacted the dealer's support and had the product replaced. However, the alternative product that was sent also had a battery that did not last. The third replacement, which was exchanged in this way, also stopped working three days ago. Since I spend a lot of time at home, the consumption as a tracker should be low. I hardly use activity measurement or alarms. Nevertheless, this is the situation. I have no complaints about the app or design, so it would be 5 stars if it weren't for this battery issue. However, there is nothing I can do with something that doesn't work. I hope the manufacturer will make fundamental improvements.
19/04/2021 | anonymous
As a first-time user of a health management wearable device, I am satisfied with the price, design, and content. If you purchase spare batteries, you can use it without any problems.
01/04/2021 | anonymous
Watch is nonfunctional. Thought it was a dead battery. It was not. The watch doesnt work. Sending back for a replacement.
31/03/2021 | anonymous
I purchased this product because it was one of 5 other fitness trackers that AARP Walking Program synced with. Its accurate and a very attractive looking piece. To test its accuracy, I wore a competitor's fitness tracker simultaneously. I am pleased with the results.I walk 5 miles 3 days per week and needed a reliable, attractive piece. So far, it's lived up to its standards.
27/03/2021 | anonymous
Cheap and prone to dirt
I've been using it for a week. I don't need notifications or a wallet, I just use it for fitness! I didn't like the design that said that, so I'm more comfortable than I thought and satisfied with the functionality. However, I'm concerned that it was a bit cheap (appropriate for the price?). I bought it in pink, but dust tends to accumulate on the bezel and it stands out because it's white. I should have gone for a metal frame.
22/03/2021 | anonymous
Analog Smart Watch
Everything I've purchased so far has had a broken button, and this time the same place broke in just two months! It's hard to say that this is not a difficult product. I will contact you to see if you can exchange it. For now, I will give it a -2 star. This is already the fourth purchase of a Wijings watch. I'm not good at digital display watches, but I wanted a pedometer, exercise recorder, and sleep tracker, so I chose this one. It has good usability and minimal necessary functions, so this is it for me. At first, I bought the blue metal case, then beige, then the limited blue of this line, and then I bought this pink, which was less than 3000 yen. I may use the contents and belt with the blue one. I adjust the watch hands with the app, but when I touch the clock hands on the smartphone screen with my finger, the actual hands move in conjunction, so it's funny to show it to children. It was on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and I wore it all the time during exercise and bathing, but there were no problems at all. I have replaced the battery once. For the first generation, I replaced it myself, but since water entered from the packing and it malfunctioned, I had it replaced by Mister Minute. The third generation, as shown in the image, had a broken case. The case is plastic, and I used it quite hard, so I guess it can't be helped. Since it has been released for a long time, I don't think it will last long with a test battery. In addition, if you use the alarm with vibration, it will consume a lot of power, but it has been running for more than a year after replacing the battery. In terms of functionality, the alarm function is quite excellent, and it automatically records exercise and other activities, so it is helpful. I also use the Wijings body composition meter, so I can manage all the necessary data for sleep, number of steps, exercise, body composition, and health management with just one app. The only problem is that depending on the product, the time difference is severe. There were times when it was one minute late in a few days. There is also a clock on the smartphone, so if it is too late, you can just adjust it. I like it enough to overlook that.

The media could not be loaded. Solo trabajo por un mes y paro totalmente. Lo llevé a un relojero y no pudo hacerlo trabajar, cambió batería pero no funcionó y le puso la misma batería que trajo.

Using it with peace of mind.
I returned the previous blood pressure monitor I was using because it either overheated due to battery or had a sensor malfunction, causing burns on my wrist. In comparison, Withings Move doesn't have a worrisome light sensor and uses a replaceable battery that lasts for 18 months, so I can use it with peace of mind. It also syncs with Google Fit, allowing me to record data with both the scale I bought separately and this watch. The only regret I have is not paying attention to the color of the belt when I bought it. Pink is not my favorite color... but I found a black belt that fits and changing it was very easy. I hope the battery lasts as long as advertised and that replacing it is easy.
08/03/2021 | anonymous
Absolutely love it!
I love that this tracker is affordable, water proof, stylish and simple. The app is awesome and tracks steps and sleep. Plus you can track other exercise as well. It's a great find! Highly recommend it!!
03/03/2021 | anonymous
The battery ran out in about a month
28/02/2021 | anonymous
It's an OK watch
The description looked great. Heart rate, blood pressure, walking, sleep monitoring etc. It's interesting to look at sleep quality, it usually matches how well I think I slept. But it doesn't measure blood pressure, you have to type it in on your phone and it tracks what you typed in on your phone. You also enter a walking goal ant it indicates the percentage of that goal that you have met. Same info as on your phone.

Battery runs out in 1 month
Just the day after the end of the return period, an alert for Power Reserve Mode, and after 1 month of arrival, the battery needed to be replaced. I only use it for sleep measurement in combination with Mi Band 5, but the function is limited and considering the price, I don't plan to replace the battery until it runs out. I wonder what the maximum 18-month battery life was.
06/02/2021 | anonymous
never have to charge
I'm casual at best and having this basic fitness tracker is really nice when you never have to worry about charging it. It's also very light on the wrist and non distracting since it's not a smart watch.
26/01/2021 | anonymous
I liked withings very much however, I had this for two months and the battery already died. Now I’m debating on replacing a battery or buying a different tracker with more features. The step counter and sleep counter was pretty accurate
21/01/2021 | anonymous
Great little watch but he sleep tracker was very off a majority of the time. Batteries only lasted 10 months. I absolutely loved the design & analog digital combo.
16/01/2021 | anonymous
Excellent Product, Excellent Price!
I bought this watch for my teenage daughter because I own the HR Steel and love it. She loves this one just as much as I love mine!
09/01/2021 | anonymous
Doesn’t last long
This was the second one I bought. The first one lasted much longer than this one. It now doesn’t work so is only good for a year or so. In that year I replaced battery at least twice. Won’t be buying this again - too short of a lifespan, very disappointing as I liked to wear this as on everyday watch.
09/01/2021 | anonymous
The accuracy of the step count is very high, and it detects most exercises. Also, there is almost no error in recording sleep time, and it can be recorded very accurately. The battery life is good, so it is recommended for those who are lazy like me. Above all, it looks good. It looks like a simple analog watch, so there is no notification function, but I really like it.
