Withings Expands Health and Fitness Line with Pulse HR
It’s been a little more than two months since Withings announced it had reacquired itself from Nokia—a partnership that lasted about two years. At the time, the company rolled out a rebranded look and a new smartwatch. Now, with the holidays knocking on the door, the health and wellness brand is back with another new product, the Pulse HR.
The latest addition to the Withings line of health and fitness trackers, the Pulse HR harkens back to the classic design of the Withings Pulse—the first fitness tracker the company ever launched back in 2013. The product features heart rate monitoring, multisport features, and connected GPS capabilities, all packed into a product that boasts 20-day battery life.
Despite the classic, thin-band fitness tracker design, the Pulse HR still offers some of the key features that consumers look for in these smart bands, including access to the time and date, your heart rate, calories burned, progress toward daily activity goals, real-time workout information, and (of course) smartphone notifications. That information, and more, is available by simply raising your wrist while wearing the Pulse HR, which illuminates the OLED display.
