Withings Pulse HR smart band unveiled

Withings Launches New Pulse HR Fitness Tracker

The Withing company, freshly released from Nokia after they managed to buy themselves back, is now releasing an updated fitness tracker dubbed the Pulse HR. The wearable boasts a heart rate monitor, activity tracking and sleep monitoring, Global Positioning System tracking when connected to a smartphone over Bluetooth, and up to twenty days of battery life on a single charge. All at a reasonable price.

"At Withings, we are dedicated to providing people with premium health and fitness tracking options that they can select from that best suit their personal lifestyles".

The Withings Pulse HR, as its name suggests, comes with heart-rate monitoring right off the bat and is capable of not only measuring your pulse at pre-defined intervals but also continuously when you're in workout mode. It will track sleep quality though, providing a sleep score at the end of your night calculated from your length and quality of shut-eye. You can even use the Sleep Smarter program to help you improve your sleep over an eight-week period. You'll also be able to use the Pulse HR to track around 30 different activities including yoga and hockey.

The Withings Pulse HR, on the other hand, is more like a watch, insofar as it is permanently attached to its straps. This gadget is a wearable fitness tracker that comes with a new design when compared to the previous Pules HR model. The continuous heart rate measurement feature provides users with a breakdown of their workout session heart rate zones so they can easily track their levels from workout to workout and reach their fitness goals.

Fels said Guzman had his own personal army- and hit squad and carried a diamond-encrusted handgun and a gold AK-47. His arrest and extradition to New York City shook up Mexico's drug underworld and remains a big story there.

The Withings Pulse HR is waterproof to 50m so it's fine for swimming.

The Withings Pulse HR is more of a traditional fitness tracker rather than a smartwatch, like the Steel HR Sport from September. The Pulse HR features water resistance up to 5 meters (5 ATM), connected Global Positioning System tracking, and a 316L stainless steel casing holding an OLED display. Black is the only color on showcase now, but more bands will be added in January.

Pulse HR offers a superior battery life of up to 20 days, making it the ideal companion for day to night tracking. It's priced at $129.95 and available to order right now at Amazon.com and Withings.com. We're planning to put on to the test later this month, so stay tuned.
