Withings Pulse O2 Activity, Sleep, and Heart Rate + SPO2 Tracker for iOS and Android, Black

The Withings Pulse O2 is an advanced activity and health tracker. Versatile, it offers all wearing options: slap it on your wrist using the wristband, attach it to your clothes with the clip or simply drop it in a pocket. It tracks your activity all through the day (including steps, elevation, distance, running and calories burned). At night, slide the Pulse O2 in its wristband and launch the sleep cycle analysis to precisely assess your sleep quality. In addition to the daily and nightly tracking, you can also measure your heart rate and your blood oxygen level by putting your finger on the back of the device. If the screen of your Withings Pulse does not display anything after pressing the top button, this is certainly because your Pulse needs to be charged. After charging the Pulse, press & hold the button for 15 seconds and check if the Pulse displays “hello”. If not, your micro-USB cable may be the cause of this issue, please try to charge your Pulse using another cable, for instance the one provided with your Smartphone.

    Withings Pulse O2 Compared to Fitbit, Nike Fuel Band and Striiv I recently purchased the new Withings Pulse O2 activity tracker, (FYI now available for purchase on Withings website) after having to stop using the Fitbit Force, which was taken off the market due to a small percentage of users experiencing an allergic reaction to a metal piece that comes into contact with your skin. (Unfortunately after a few months of use I was one of those people.) I did not own the previous Pulse device.For a quick, short review, the Withings Pulse O2 tracks steps/feet climbed/miles traveled/calories burned, and can determine your heart rate, blood oxygen level, and sleep, which can all be displayed on the device along with the date and time. It can be synced wirelessly via Bluetooth, and you can set goals on the app. I enjoy the device; the 4 out of 5 start review is due to the material the band and clip are made out of, a soft, rubber material that attracts a lot of dust and lint. In comparison to the Fitbit, cannot track steps while in sleep mode or notify you when you’ve reached your goal. Those are not major reasons for me to stop using it, but since I’ve used different devices in the past, I have something else to compare to. I recommend this device to anyone looking to own an activity tracker that tracks the info listed, it is easy to use and sync. Below is a more detailed review, breaking down the different tracking options and comparing them with the other devices listed in the summary.I am a Fitbit fan; I have owned most of the different versions of the Fitbit. (Original Fitbit/Fitbit One/Flex/Force) For the most part all of the Fitbit’s track the same data, the original and One are clips, and Flex and Force are armbands. The Original, One, and Force display the info on the device, Flex syncs to your phone or computer where you can check the data. The Flex will show “dots” on the screen to show your progress to what you’ve set as your goal, and will notify you once you’ve reach it, which is how the Nike Fuel band works.The Withings Pulse is very similar to the Fitbit, with the addition of being able to check your blood pressure and blood oxygen level. All of this info is displayed on the device, and you can sync by either plugging it into your computer via a cable or sync to your phone via Bluetooth. I recently received the Withings Pulse O2, so I only have a few days experience with the device, but that has been enough for me to compare it to different trackers I have owned.DEVICE FEEL:The Withings band and clip are made out of a soft, rubber material. That is one of the reasons I gave it 4 out of 5 starts. The rubber material is the type that attracts everything, dust, lint hair. And I have very small wrists and the band, even on the smallest setting, is still slightly big.The Fitbit Flex and Force is a more rigid, flexible rubber material, and uses a plastic clip to secure the band. You also select a size when purchasing, but similar to most wristbands, it has many slots to secure the clip. I found the Fitbit Flex/Force to be the most comfortable and secure device. The Original and One are clips and do not come in an armband options, but you are given a fabric wrist band to insert the device if you want to track your sleep.The Nike Flue Band is a very rigid, slightly flexible rubber material. I did not like the feel of the Fuel Band; it was too rigid and did not fit comfortably because of this. The Withings and Fitbit bands are flexible enough to wrap around your wrists comfortably, the Fuel band holds its shape.The Striiv is a device that you can wear many ways, you are given a clip, strap, and wrist band to wear. I have only used the clip; the device does not track sleep so I have never worn it in bed. It is larger than the other devices, but for me has been comfortable enough to clip on the inside of pants pockets.TRACKING STEPS:All of the devices track steps, the Withings, Fitbit Original/One/Force, and Striiv all display this info on the device itself. There isn’t much to say here, one reviewer of the Withings mentioned it did not track as many steps as the Fitbit, I am currently using the Withings/Fitbit/Striiv devices and so far the Withings device is tracking the most steps. Striiv has the least amount of steps, which makes sense because I do not wear it at night, and I start using it once I am up and ready to leave the house. The Withings and Fitbit devices only come off when showering, so I am tracking those lost steps in between. As far as the Withings and Fitbit being off on steps, I’m not sure yet why, maybe more use will give me more info to determine the offset.The Nike Fuel Band and Fitbit Flex do not display this info on the device, but it is tracked and can be viewed via the apps once the data is synced.TRACKING STEPS/FEET CLIMBEDTo note, most of the devices allow you to set what unit of measurement you want to use when tracking. All devices…
