Philips' new personal health tech includes a fitness watch

There's also a Withings-like smart scale, a thermometer and a blood pressure monitor. Watch out, Withings -- Philips wants to move in on your turf. The Dutch tech giant is launching a slew of personal health devices that take advantage of its expertise in health tech while seeming more than a little familiar. The centerpiece is arguably the $250 Health Watch. The wearable tracks your activity, heart rate and sleep patterns like numerous fitness trackers, but with a few nice twists. You're getting "clinically validated" data, Philips promises, and you can enter your calorie intake either on the watch or in the companion Android and iOS apps. You also have the option of Apple Watch-like (though thankfully customizable) reminders to stand. Just don't expect a full-on smartwatch -- this is more of a health device that happens to talk to your phone.
