Get yourself ready for a slew of Finnish health hardware: Nokia has announced that it plans to buy the digital wellbeing and wearables company Withings for $190 million.
According to sources,Nokia, which is buying the company in cash, will roll Withings’ 200 employees into its Nokia Technologies business. It’s hoped that the takeover will allow Nokia to make difference in peoples’ lives with hardware to help folks keep track of their health and activity.
It is to be mentioned that Withings already has a range of nicely designed and user-friendly products: The analog watch-style Activité fitness tracker , an e-ink screen smart pedometer , and even an easy-to-use digital thermometer .
It’s not clear exactly what Nokia will do with Withings’ existing product range, or what direction it will take it in.
