Going for your first spin around the dial with your brand new Activité, Activité Steel or Activité Pop? You’ve come to the right place. Here's how to enjoy all the cool features of your new connected activity tracker.

Once you’ve gone through the process of pairing your watch to your phone or tablet, you will be ready to start tracking your steps. Watch Mike, our social and corporate support specialist walk you thought some of the features, and then read on to learn more.


What can I track?

Your Withings Activité watch is enabled to automatically detect your activity. Whether you’re running, walking, swimming or sleeping, your watch will automatically recognize and begin tracking the activity. All data will sync seamlessly and automatically to your Health Mate app so you can analyze your activity levels and track your trends over time.

Customize your step goal


The daily recommended number of steps is 10,000, but we believe customization is the key to success. Feeling like you’re up for an added challenge? Increase that step goal! If 10,000 steps seems overwhelming, start small and work your way up to this number. Here’s how to do it:

  • Make sure your phone’s Bluetooth is enabled
  • Open the Health Mate app
  • Click on the Activity widget (the orange one)
  • Click on the three dots in the top right corner
  • Select change my step goal
  • Drag the circle to adjust your step goal
  • Select OK

Setting an alarm


Hate the sound of a blaring alarm clock? We don’t blame you. We’ve embedded a gentle vibration alarm into your watch, so you can wake up gently.

  • Make sure your phone’s Bluetooth is enabled
  • Open the Health Mate app
  • Tap on Withings Activité widget (the blue one)
  • Drag your finger to set alarm by choosing a wake up time

Want to check your alarm time? Double tap on the watch face and the hands will move to show your alarm time, and then they’ll snap back to reflect the correct time.

Time zone changes

Have a life that’s always on the go? That’s why we created auto syncing for changing time zones. No more confusion and no more ugly dials. When you land:

  • Launch the Health Mate app
  • Activité will automatically adjust

  • Pull back the lever of the pin to replace with new strap

Replacing the button cell battery

Love that your watch is waterproof? So do we. To ensure the continued enjoyment of this feature, visit your local jeweler when it is time to replace the button cell battery. Simply bring a CR2025 (found at local retailer like Best Buy or online with Amazon) with you and they’ll switch it up. Here is a quick product guide in case your jeweler has any questions.

Resetting your Activité

Use the tool to push the reset button on the back of the watch case—Activite will vibrate indicating that that watch has been reset.
