Thanks to its balance which revealed it to the general public, the French start-up, carried by a team of experts – 230 people divided between Issy-les-Moulineaux, Boston and Hong Kong – weighs heavily in the field of connected objects. . The house, which generated a turnover of 50 million euros last year, also stands out in the world of watchmaking with health smartwatches known to be the most innovative on the market, capable of measure atrial fibrillation or even oxygen in the blood. Acclaimed by many French people, the ScanWatch collection, now officially CE medical certified, is enriched with a more horological and sporty version: the ScanWatch Horizon. We tested it.

Ambition. Like all the models in the collection, the watch is intended to be a doctor at your fingertips. More specifically, a daily tool, discreet and easy to use, capable of collecting a large amount of medical data and transmitting it to a health professional so that he can issue a diagnosis. If the functions of the watch remain, the design has been completely redesigned to reach out to a new clientele.

The style. With its rotating bezel and luminescent indexes, this hybrid watch takes up the aesthetic codes of diving watches. If it is not ISO 6425 certified (official standard that certifies diving watches, editor’s note), it is waterproof up to 100 meters (10 atm).

Features. This beautiful accessory is also essential for health since it allows the recording of a medical grade ECG, the measurement of oxygen saturation in the blood and a detailed monitoring of activity as well as sleep. An application allows you to directly communicate the data collected to your doctor. More anecdotal, but very practical, the vibrating alarm clock option on the wrist allows you to wake up without waking others!

Most. Discreet, waterproof and 30-day battery life. So many elements that allow you to wear the watch all the time.

The least. If the watch remains discreet, its larger volume makes it less comfortable to wear at night. It does not have a microphone or GPS functions.

The price. 499.95 euros (200 euros more than the classic ScanWatch).
