Wellograph puts a luxury twist on activity-tracking wristbands (or is it a smartwatch?)

Jon Phillips | April 4, 2014
It's got a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a posh-looking aluminum body that's nicely machined with subtle, curvy, elegant lines.

If heart-rate data is your thing, then you now have a much more handsome alternative to the Basis B1 Band, which has a bleak design and very dim display. But where Basis puts its science front-and-center, explaining its advanced body sensors and algorithms with a bit of reassuring detail, we really don't know how the Wellograph works, and why we should trust its bio reports. For a wearable aimed squarely at quantified-selfers, that's a bit concerning.

But the proof will be in the pudding once we test Wellograph for ourselves. I'm also interested to see if the device can last two weeks on a charge as advertised. Pre-ordered Wellographs are set to ship this summer. I hope I'm in the first batch of users to give this interesting wearable a spin.
