Withings Steel HR Sport vs Steel HR | Full Comparison
We compare the new Withings Steel HR Sport smartwatch, launched September 2018, with the original Steel HR (rebranded the Nokia Steel HR just last year). What’s the difference between the new Sport fitness tracker and the first Steel watch, which you can still grab for £170 UK?
The Steel HR Sport costs £190, just a little more, yet offers some cool new features. You get connected GPS support, tracking of even more activities and VO2 fitness measurement. Both Withings watches boast sleek stainless steel design, a digital display and full notifications support. Plus the Steel HR Sport and the original Nokia Steel HR use the same Health app.
Which is the best fitness smartwatch, the new Withings Sport model or the standard Steel HR? Well, the 2018 tracker is only a little more expensive, yet boasts more features. So it’s an easy one for us.

Why compare specs we can read ourselves. Did you find any difference in performance?
I've tried both and my main issue with the Steel HR is that it just feels too petite for my wrist (IMO). The extra few mm on the HR Sport really makes a difference for wrist feel.
Is the white face any easier to see in low light conditions .. Thanks
I have the Withings Steel HR which has now been updated to provide exactly the same functionality as the Steel HR Sport except the VO2 max feature. That means it now has the excellent connected GPS and the full range of sport options.That feature is, I suspect, of no interest to the majority (including me) so I will stick with what I've got.
Is the digital read out window the exact same size on both of the watches?
I have HR and Nokia 6.1 and love them both .Love the new notifications on the HR excellent watch .
