    I agree that a second hand would be nice. However, Withings devices are first and foremost, ACTIVITY TRACKERS. A major selling point of Withings devices is the battery life as compared to other manufacturers. By installing an analogue second-hand, the battery life would be shortened correspondingly so it's (in my opinion) a compromise that's not worth investigating as I think battery life more important than a second hand.

    How much would it shorten the battery life? Right now, without notifications, I only need to charge my watch monthly. What would be the difference in charging for a second hand useful to EMS workers, engineers, and timed sports? Charge every week? Worth it!

    They could add a seconds function to show them in the digital display.

    or a function to make the step hand switch to seconds when you need it

    Love this idea! I’ve become dependent on the rail to get to work and have actually been looking at alternative timepieces b/c seconds now matter. Having a way to temporarily convert the step hand to seconds would result in me wanting to upgrade rather than moving on to something else.

    Yes, please. The lack of a second hand is the only reason I haven't bought this watch yet

    After long research and product coperison the HR Steal would be my 1st choice for design, battery live and other functionality but i need a watch that shows me seconds analog or digital when getting patients pulse. I'm also have a Whitings scale, so it would have bean the perfect match if it would display seconds.
    Pleas ad a second display and a timer with vibration alert.

    I agree. The reason why I haven't bought this activity tracker is because of the lack of a second hand. I require one for checking pulse - otherwise, this watch would meet all the functional abilities of a regular analogue watch AND have the benefits of the activity tracking. I would not mind charging more frequently in order to have this function.

    Hi guys - please please please enable an update to allow seconds to be displayed on the screen for a minute if you press the crown button. It could be the first of the selections when cycling through the menu and would be massively helpful.
    Cheers!
