Popular French consumer electronics company Withings was acquired by Nokia about two years back for €170 million, though the things didn’t go as planned for Nokia to enter the digital health business and soon had to sell back to the original co-founder Eric Carreel. Just recently, Withings introduced Steel HR Sports smartwatch which made the comeback of the company in the digital health business. Now in the latest development, Withings has introduced a Pulse HR Fitness tracker as a competitor to the Fitbit Charge 3.
The fitness tracker monitors your heart rate continuously in the workout mode. Interesting the tracker gets to detect your activities and initiates different tracking modes accordingly. Supporting 10 activities, the tracker automatically after detects the type of activity you’re into, keeps track of the metrics as calories burnt and the distance you’ve traveled with the help of GPS.
Likewise, you could also monitor your sleep patterns with the help of the sleep monitor. The device also wakes you up gently using the smart wakeup feature knowing once you’re done resting. WITHINGS promises 20 days of battery time, though practically testing it would suggest its performance in this regard.
