The anticipated stylish wearable device is now available for pre-orders. So if you are willing to shell-out some money you can now order a chic activity tracking watch as the French device make, Withings, has finally announced the start of its Activite watch's sale.

Wingthings Activite, which pre-orders is available to all, looks aesthetically good. Its fashionable façade, though, comes with a price as the French health and fitness gadget maker reportedly plans to sell it the stylish watch at $450 each.

It can be recalled that Withings hinted the new wearable device will be available at $390 back in June. On the other hand, the initial rumored price is still more expensive compared to the set selling price for its wearable gadget counter parts.

Apple's own watch is reportedly set for a $350 price mark while most of the Android smartwatches are retailed at around $200. On the other hand, it is important to note that Withings Activite is not really an ordinary smartwatch. It is more of an activity tracker inside a stylish analog wristwatch.

The French made wearable is made with high quality materials which justify its costly price tag.  "It has a Swiss-made dial, Swiss-made sapphire and stainless steel case, calf leather strap and quartz watch movement powered by a standard watch battery for over eight months of usage."

Withings Activite, compatible with iPhone 4s and its follow-up series as well as iPod touch 5th generation and up, automatically tracks its user's running and swimming activities. It metrically notes the steps, distance, and calories of its active users. The stylish fitness watch also tracks the time it takes for its user to sleep, its duration, interruptions, and even sleep cycles.

These tracking features combined with Withing Activite's exquisite technical features give this smart wearable device the edge among its competitors. The French fitness device company said they will be offering limited number of the device for its pre-orders. A stock bar will be seen for consumers to know if stocks are still available for pre-orders.
