Withings Pulse activity tracker launched
Wearable electronics have become very popular, and Withings new Pulse smart activity tracker hopes to capitalise on this trend.
The Withings Pulse is a very small instrument containing a heart rate monitor and pedometer to track the steps taken, distance covered, elevation, calories burned and quality of sleep of the user. It is also possible to connect to the free Withings Health Mate app via Bluetooth to display a trend and real time information of the user. The Withings Health Mate app is available on both iOS and Android.
The Withings Pulse is similar in function to the Nike+ Fuelband, available only in the US and UK, or the Jawbone UP wristband. However, it is designed to be attached to bags or clothing rather than as a wristband, and it also comes with the addition of a heart rate monitor.
Currently available for preorder in the United States, the Withings Pulse will sell at $99.95 USD.
