Health Trackers

Withings Pulse O2 Activity Tracker

Withings just announced the Pulse O2 activity tracker and a redesign of its companion app, Health Mate. The new device expands on the versatility of Withings’ original Pulse, adding a wristband accessory so users can wear it as a watch. The Pulse O2 also adds the ability to measure blood oxygen level in addition to heart rate. New automatic background synchronization via Bluetooth Low Energy and wake-up recognition also contribute to Pulse O2’s ease of use. The updated Health Mate app now features real-time coaching that turns the data from Withings devices into actionable advice.

Like its predecessor, the Pulse O2 tracks users’ activity, sleep, and heart rate. The improved device tracks a second vital sign, blood oxygen level, via an optical lens and light on the back of the unit — a first for the category of activity trackers. Accurate blood oxygen readings can be critical for mountain climbers, athletes, and people with breathing problems like asthma and other COPDs. It’s also a way for anyone to quickly assess respiratory function.

Withings Health Mate app

New Health Mate App
Withings also released a major update to the Health Mate, the central user experience for all their products. The web and mobile application has been revamped to provide real-time coaching toward the user’s health objectives. Smart Insights help point out users’ progress, Healthy Reminders help them adopt the right habits, Virtual Badges provide rewards, and Leaderboards add a competitive element to staying healthy. All items appear in real-time on a new Timeline view to maintain daily motivation. According to Hutchings, “People are done with raw graphics! They want some kind of interpretation and, most importantly, some realistic call to action.”

Price and Availability
The Withings Pulse O2 is available today for $119.95.
