Withings Pulse HR Full Specifications – Perhaps in an attempt to recover their almost lost mojo in the fitness tracking business after almost 2 years of an unproductive merger with Nokia, Withings released the Pulse HR, a fantastic fitness smartband which is already dubbed a great alternative for Fitbit Charge 3. It features a heart rate monitor, multisport tracking, connected GPS and is rated 5ATM ready to track your active life in the most fashionable way.

- Notifications and Application
The design of the Pulse HR looks quite intuitive, but certainly not the most advanced. I think that credit should go to Fitbit Charge 3. However, the Pulse HR has a fantastic design, it features a stainless case with a polycarbonate coating for the top which looks nice. The 252mm straps are made of silicone materials which are 140 mm minimum and 200mm maximum. This size is great, but for bigger wrists, it could be tight causing discomfort. Some buyers have complained about the hinge between the Pulse hr and strap not being so durable, so you might want to use this very carefully.
The display is great, with a 1.78 inches wide screen you get to see more at a glance, it’s not a touchscreen device, but there is a button by the side which by pressing it switches between different modes. The OLED display which very much visible under sunlight is big enough to display full notifications. This is actually great considering that you don’t have to check your phone to see the full message from a notification.
With the Pulse HR, you get to go longer on a single charge compared to its nearest competitors. It uses a lithium-ion battery which can last over 15 days on regular use. It’s so impressive, you get to do more than having to worry every now and then about charging it up.
The Pulse HR is rated 5ATM which means it is waterproof up to 50 meters. This is great, you can wear it under the rain, to the pool or ocean and it will be just fine. So, for avid swimmers, you will find the Pulse HR a fantastic choice as it can track your swimming activities such as duration and calories.
The Pulse HR is a fitness tracker with support for multisport activities. It has support for about 30 different sport modes which you can choose from for more robust tracking. While the Pulse HR can automatically track your activities, you will get much accurate tracking results when you choose from the 30 sport modes available.
One important feature is the ability of the Pulse HR to track a complete sleep cycle, it also analyses sleep quality. You can set up an alarm on the Pulse HR, it vibrates about 5 times which should be enough to wake you up.
Pulse HR also comes with a heart rate sensor that automatically tracks your heart rate and is able to analyze time spent in different heart rate zones. The Pulse HR, unfortunately, doesn’t have GPS inbuilt, but you can still access GPS functions by connecting to your phone GPS which then allows you to track outdoor activities such distance, routes, and locations.
One fantastic thing about the Pulse HR is that the companion Health mate app is quite intuitive and very easy to use allowing you to see all tracked metrics at a glance. Below is a list of activities the Pulse HR can track;
The Pulse HR is also a perfect companion for your phone. It connects and syncs effortlessly with your phone via Bluetooth so you never get to miss those important notifications from both native and third-party apps.
The good thing is you can set up notifications for over 100 different apps and even better is the way these notifications are displayed on the screen of the Pulse HR. It shows the full notifications meaning you can read it all directly on the Pulse HR, that’s how convenient it can get. It’s awesome.
The Pulse HR is compatible with both Android 6.0 or later or iOS 10.0 or later.
