Withings Pulse HR marks a new step into fitness bands

Withings Launches New Pulse HR Fitness Tracker

This is super impressive and the long-lasting battery is surely going to get fitness fans interested in Pulse HR.

Since the Withings Pulse HR is primarily a fitness tracker, it is created to automatically track 10 activties.

By Withings' own admission it's a bit of a throwback to the design of the Withings Pulse, the company's first tracker launched back in 2013.

As fitness trackers go, the Pulse HR is a fairly straightforward one. It continues an expansion of the company's line of wearables and includes a black soft silicone wristband as part of the design, which users can exchange for different color options to suit their personal taste (additional wristband colors are coming in January). Withings says Pulse HR will ship in time for Christmas. It features a reinforced black polycarbonate surface that fits in a 316L stainless steel casing.

You can also track your heart rate throughout the day, and have continuous heart rate tracking during activities, with over 30 different activities supported. Once paired with a smartphone, users can track their pace, distance, elevation and map their workouts during activities like walking, running, hiking or cycling.

Most of your stats will also be available on the tracker's OLED display, although we've yet to learn the specs of that screen. The new Withings band claims to offer 20-day battery life, compared to the Charge 3 and Vivosmart 4, both of which last about a week depending on usage. The app even offers a Sleep Smarter Program, consisting of eight weeks of recommendations to improve sleep patterns. As a comparison, the Fitbit Charge 3 costs $150 and has a very similar feature list, which would make the Pulse HR a very, very adequate alternative. The vibration motor is also used for notifications.

Preorders are already underway via Amazon and the Withings official website with a price tag of $129.95 with the smartwatch set to become available December 5th. The watch runs the latest version of Withings' proprietary software, OS2, which brings with it path mapping, enhanced multi-sport tracking, new sleep tracking features, and notifications for all apps - not just for calls, texts, emails and events.
