After a preview at CES 2019, Withings now has a release window for the BPM Core — which is capable of taking an ECG and detecting AFib — as well as an updated version of its popular classic Connect blood pressure monitor.
Withings is back under its own control after stepping out from under the control of Nokia. At the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show, AppleInsider got to try out its new Core BPM, Move, and Move ECG wearables to see how the company plans to excel in 2019.
Withings is expanding its range of health-related devices by introducing the BPM Core cardiovascular monitor, while its wearable fitness tracking range grows with the introduction of the Move collection, including one that is the first analog watch that has on-demand electrocardiogram capabilities.
Withings has returned to the wearable device market with its first new product since being sold by Nokia, launching the Steel HR Sport, a revival of an earlier smartwatch that discretely hides its fitness-related features behind an analog watch face.
Finland's Nokia is abandoning its foray into health hardware and services, selling off that unit to Eric Carreel — one of the founders of Withings, which was acquired just two years ago to form the core of the division.

Withings on Tuesday announced the addition of automatic swim tracking to its iPhone-compatible Activite and Activite Pop smartwatches via a firmware update, with plans to further expand the feature in "coming months."
