This seems to be the the rumored Withings Go 2 we wrote about recently. 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.
Unfortunately, the Pulse HR doesn't have built-in Global Positioning System.
According to the company, this is a revival of the classic design of the Withings Pulse, which was the first tracker the company launched back in 2013. The Withings Pulse HR fitness tracker is constructed using premium 316L stainless steel case and a reinforced polycarbonate surface coating to withstand wear and tear and everyday use.
The OLED display on the Pulse HR is able to show phone notifications, heart rate, steps, distance, calories, activities and alarm settings.
Under the hood, there's the usual gamut of fitness tracking sensors.
The Pulse HR has a rectangular design with a long screen, and is similar in overall style to the Fitbit Charge 3 or Huawei Band 3 Pro designs, rather than the traditional watch look we're used to seeing from Withings. You'll be able to track your heart rate zones over time, giving you a better idea how to plan your workouts and reach your fitness goals.
You get dedicated multisport tracking for activities that range from volleyball to yoga. This includes swimming as the band is rated at 5ATM.
Since the Withings Pulse HR is primarily a fitness tracker, it is created to automatically track 10 activties. The app is free on Android and iOS and works with other systems like Apple Health and Google Fit. Pulse HR comes with a 110mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is good for up to 20 days between charges.
Preorders are already underway via Amazon and the Withings official website with a price tag of $129.95 with the smartwatch set to become available December 5th.
Not much is said for the minimalistic monochrome display, but it does the job of basic information conveyance - more details and charts on fitness, health and sleep metrics can be seen on the complementary Health Mate app.
