After buying back from Nokia and releasing Steel HR Sport under its own brand in September, Withings released another updated laptop, called Pulse HR. A water resistant fitness trainer offering heart rate monitoring, Pulse HR has connected GPS tracking and a 20-day battery life.
The tracker’s silicone bracelet can be replaced with two other colors, and the OLED screen can display real-time training information such as calories burning, daily activity measurements and smart text messages. It can also track sleep patterns, detect rest length, and wake the user with vibration alarm at optimal times during the sleep cycle.
Pulse HR is an updated version of Pulse, Withing’s first activity tracker launched in 201
3. The original Pulse was not really a band all but a clip-on tracker the size of a matchbox that could be attached to a belt or pocket.
Although Withings has done some cool analogue hybrids earlier, Activité Pop likes, Pulse HR is focused on people who prefer the appearance of traditional fitness tractors. It is equipped with Withing’s own OS2, which is the same operating system included in Steel and Steel HR.
Regulations today begin on Amazon and Withings.com for $ 129.95 and smartwatch will be available on December 5th. The other bracelet color options like silver and red will be available in January 2019. At $ 129.95, it’s actually the same price as a Fitbit Alta HR (which looks remarkably similar), but Pulse HR comes with connected GPS functionality, which means Fitbit not do not have.
