AT&T is adding six new gadgets to its wearable device portfolio, significantly expanding its selection starting on June 26.
The carrier already offers a number of mainstream wearable devices from Samsung, Jawbone, Fitbit, Timex and others, but wearable technology is on the rise and such gadgets are rapidly growing in popularity. AT&T wants to take advantage of the trend and start selling several other wearables, including unique or less popular gadgets.
Starting next Friday, June 26, AT&T will start offering the Case-Mate Rebecca Minkoff Notification Bracelet, the Healbe GoBe, the Mio FUSE Heart Rate + Activity Tracker-Crimson, the Misfit Flash, the Withings Activité, and the Withings Activité Pop.
"These additions to our best collection of wearables include a wide variety of prices and purposes, everything from fashionable wrist pieces to durable fitness trackers," AT&T touted in its announcement.
If you haven't heard of all (or any) of the above-listed wearables, here's what each of them has to offer and for how much:
Case-Mate Rebecca Minkoff Notification Bracelet
This wearable is specifically designed for women and works with an iPhone, delivering instant notifications to the wearer's wrist by gently vibrating when receiving a call or text. The bracelet looks like a stylish piece of jewelry and promises a battery life of up to 30 days. Moreover, the gadget allows users to set an "inner circle" of up to 25 favorite contacts and receive vibration notifications from the bracelet only when one of those contacts tries to get in touch. The Minkoff Notification bracelet will go on sale through the carrier's website, as well as in physical AT&T retail locations, sporting a $120 price tag.
This automatic body manager is designed to track a wearer's calorie burn, as well as calorie intake, without requiring any manual logging of activities or meals. The Healbe GoBe has three special sensors built-in and will also offer details about the wearer's stress level, hydration, sleep quality, blood pressure and heart rate. The gadget will be available for $299.99 through AT&T's online store and AT&T's Michigan Avenue store in Chicago.
The Mio FUSE is a fitness-focused heart tracker, allowing users to track their heart rate during workouts or other physical activities. The device promises EKG-accurate monitoring, as well as information on activity such as steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled, pace and other. The Mio FUSE will retail through AT&T online and physical stores for $149.99.
At just $49.99, the Misfit Flash aims to serve as a more budget-friendly fitness tracker that allows users to keep tabs on their physical activity, track their sleep, or control their music. The gadget will retail through AT&T.com and nationwide AT&T stores.
This Swiss analog smartwatch aims to combine style and luxury with durability and advanced technology. In terms of looks the Withings Activité sports a stainless steel case, a black watch face, a sapphire cover glass, and a black leather band. The smartwatch boasts 3D motion sensors to track the wearer's steps taken, distance traveled, and sleep, it can automatically adjust to different time zones, and it also comes with waterproof capabilities. The Withings Activité smartwatch works with Android 4.3.3 or newer and iOS 7 or newer, and will be available from AT&T's website and AT&T's Michigan Avenue store in Chicago for $450.
Withings Activité Pop
Lastly, the Withings Activité looks as a classical watch with a round analog display, but it can track the wearer's physical activity. The watch is also waterproof and features the same compatibility as its sibling, meaning that it works with Android 4.3.3 or above and iOS 7 or above. The Withings Activité Pop will be available from AT&T's website, as well as all AT&T retail stores nationwide, for $149.95.
The Case-Mate Rebecca Minkoff Notification Bracelet, the HealbeGoBe, and the Mio FUSE are exclusive to AT&T.
