Pre-orders open for Windows Phone compatible fitness tracker watch

imageWellograph has just announced a new fitness tracker cum smartwatch which they call the the Sapphire Wellness Watch.

The accessory, which is Windows Phone compatible with an app set to be released in July, features an activity tracker and will also measure your heart rate via an LED on the back plate.

The device is constructed of sapphire, aluminium and stainless steel, and features a 2 week battery life.

"We’re excited to be bringing Wellograph to the millions of users who love and enjoy their Windows Phones," stated Nick Warnock, president of Wellograph, Inc. "Wellograph represents the first fitness tracking device dedicated to Windows Phone users and we’re committed to supporting our customers using the growing platform."

The official Wellograph app will be fully optimized for Windows Phone 8.1, and will take advantage of the operating system’s unique feature such as Live Tiles, allowing users to see information such as total steps and exercise score directly on the phone’s Start screen. The app will sync directly to the Wellograph watch, transferring all stored data effortlessly over Bluetooth.

"Windows Phone is supported by a rich app ecosystem that offers a variety of quality apps and games that take advantage of the platform’s unique features and design such as Live Tiles," said Todd Brix, general manager, Windows Apps and Store, Microsoft Corp. "The companion app for Wellograph’s new wellness watch demonstrates the kind of groundbreaking fitness and wearable technologies supporting Windows Phone, and matches the operating system’s personal style and individual self-expression."

Pre-orders for the watch,  which costs $349, are now open for the classic Silver Satin design and the limited edition Black Chrome watch, which will only be available to the first 10,000 orders.
