Withings launched a new health and fitness tracker called the Pulse HR, which is now available for online purchase at $129.95 directly from the manufacturer's website, with current shipping dates ranging from three to four weeks. It's the Pulse HR, a water-resistant fitness tracker that comes with features like connected Global Positioning System tracking, heart rate monitoring, smartphone notifications and 20-day battery life. "The band is the ideal fit for anyone who wants a device that offers important tracking features like heart rate monitoring at an affordable rate". When using the tracker in Workout Mode, the display changes to consistently show your heart rate and a timer so you can keep track of how long you've been working out. 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.

The Pulse HR is water-resistant up to 50 meters. Users select the chosen activity using the tracker display, and can customise which activities are available on the display through the Health Mate app.

Unfortunately, the Pulse HR doesn't have built-in Global Positioning System.

When it comes to sports, Pulse HR has the ability to monitor over 30 different activities including walking, running, yoga, volleyball, rowing, boxing, skiing and more.

One of her last social posts was a loving picture of her family on the day of Diddy's 49th birthday. Sure! A source also shared with the outlet that Kim had been suffering pneumonia for several weeks.


The Withings Pulse HR, on the other hand, is more like a watch, insofar as it is permanently attached to its straps. Theres no Global Positioning System receiver built in, but it can borrow the phones Global Positioning System to track your runs. The wearable also has that spectacular battery life of roughly 20 days, which sounds excellent. It also functions as a sleep tracker, studying patterns and offering up analysis of your sleep behavior, like length and quality of sleep.

Is the Pulse HR worth buying?

If you live in the United Kingdom, you're able to pre-order the Withings Pulse HR now from the official Withings website and Amazon, and it's due to start shipping on December 5.
