Withings Pulse HR with GPS Tracking and 20-Day Battery Life is a Fantastic Buy


An updated version of the 2013 Pulse, the Withings Pulse HR has the look of a traditional fitness tracker but is loaded with features.

Similar in design to the Fitbit Alta HR, the Pulse HR features an OLED display, smartphone notifications, silent vibrating alarm, notifications, automatic sleep tracking, connected GPS tracking, heart rate monitoring, water resistance and a 20-day battery life.

Measurements taken by the watch are automatically synced to the Health Mate app, which allows you to visualize results with easily readable charts. The app also features sleep scoring and sleep cycle tracking to help influence the quality of your sleep habits.

The housing of the tracker is a “premium” 316L stainless steel case with reinforced polycarbonate surface coating that’s designed to hold up to a range of fitness activities. The Pulse HR is also water resistance up to 50m.

Headquartered in Paris, Withings is best known for their award-winning design and the first Wi-Fi scale to come to market. The health technology company was bought by Nokia in 2016, but Withings co-founder Eric Carreel bought the company back in May of 2018.

The Pulse HR is available on Withings’ site for just $129.95 and comes in three different wristband color options: Deep Blue & Silver, Gray & Silver, Raspberry & Silver.
