Moments is the newest line of stylish fitness wearables from Runtastic that combines the functionality of a standard watch with a fitness tracker. While Runtastic is not the first to this target this area of the market, Withings was first with its Activite series of fitness wearables, the company is releasing a total of ten unique designs under four main collections ensuring there’s a Runtastic Moment for everyone.
Besides 24/7 activity tracking, a small indicator on the face of the Moments watch serves to tell your progress towards your daily goals. (Example 12k steps) Vibrations and a LED light behind the “9” on the watch face serves to keep you in the know and on track. There’s no word if there both LED or vibration will serve to provide smart notifications but I won’t be surprised if it does since the Runtastic Orbit received smart notifications a month back. I’ll update once I get more information from Runtastic.
The Runtastic Moment series of watches run on a standard watch battery that ensures up to 6 months of battery life without the need for charging or charging cables. The watches are priced at 2 different tiers with the main differing factor being make material other than aesthetics.
The Elite and Classic series are priced at $179.99 and offers stainless steel cases with leather straps. The more competitively priced Fun and Basic series are priced at $129.99 and boasts aluminum cases make with silicon straps. All Runtastic Moment watches are water resistant to 100m.
