After buying itself back from Nokia and releasing the Steel HR Sport under its own brand in September, Withings is releasing another updated wearable called the Pulse HR. A water-resistant fitness tracker that offers heart rate monitoring, the Pulse HR has connected GPS tracking and a 20-day battery life.
The tracker’s silicone wristband can be swapped with two other colors, and the OLED display can show real-time workout information like calories burned, daily activity goal progress, and smartphone notifications. It can also track sleep patterns, detect sleep duration, and wake up the user with vibration alarms at optimal times during the sleep cycle.
The Pulse HR is an updated version of the Pulse, Withings’ first activity tracker that launched in 2013. The original Pulse was actually not a band all, but a clip-on tracker the size of a matchbox that could be attached to a belt or pocket.
