The new 40mm case is available in black and comes with a 20mm strap.

The Nokia Steel HR features hand dials that show the time and a sub-dial that shows the percentage of personal daily activity goal achieved. The activity goal (e.g. 10,000 steps) is set within the free Nokia Health Mate application (available on iOS and Android) and keeps users up to date on their progress. The Nokia Steel HR also boasts a new dynamic digital screen at the top of the watch face, which displays health data and smartphone notifications.

Users can choose the information they would like to be shown on this screen through a multifunctional button on the side of the watch. This button allows users to navigate through data options including calories burned, daily steps, distance, sleep duration and smart alarm, and to receive notifications for calls, texts and event reminders.

Best-In-Class Battery Life

The Nokia Steel HR is powered by a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 25 days, offering the best battery life for a heart monitoring activity tracker. After approximately 25 days of heart rate monitoring, The Nokia Steel HR will transition to power save mode, giving users an additional 20 days of battery life. In power save mode, the Nokia Steel HR will continue to track basic activity, including steps and swims.

Holistic Approach to Heart Rate Monitoring

The Nokia Steel HR goes beyond tracking steps by providing users with a more detailed look into their overall health and fitness performance. This is accomplished through a technology called photoplethysmography (PPG), which monitors heart rate using green LED lights to detect variation in the level of blood in the wrist. The Nokia Steel HR’s heart -rate algorithm has been developed to provide accurate measurements, especially during workouts when it’s used most.

During a workout session, users can launch a continuous heart rate session simply by pushing the multifunctional button on the watch. Moreover, the Nokia Steel HR will automatically initiate continuous heart rate while running. During exercise, seeing real-time heart rate at a glance can help optimize workout intensity and can motivate the user to improve performance. Post-workout, the user will then be able to view maximum heart rate, calories burned, and a “time in zone” graph directly within free Nokia Health Mate App.
