Withings aiming for Activité smartwatch release in October

Withings is aiming to put its Activité smartwatch on sale in October, CEO Cédric Hutchings has revealed. At the same time as advising to Wareable about the updated release schedule for the wrist-based device, Hutchings highlighted the stylish and minimal design of the Activite compared to other smartwatches, claiming "We found that wearables were not that wearable." The Withings Activité will apparently cost around $500 at launch.

Google makes mailing list unsubscribe links more prominent

Google has made a small change to Gmail, making it easier and quicker for users to unsubscribe from mailing lists. A new "Unsubscribe" link will appear next to the incoming email address at the top when Google detects a similar link within the body of the email itself, saving the recipient from scrolling through the message to find it. The company claims this will also benefit email senders, as their mail will be "less likely to be marked as spam."
