Withings just unveiled Pulse HR, a followup to the 2013 smart band, and put it up on pre-order. It should ship in about a month and it will set you back $130/€130/£120. You can find it on Withings.com and Amazon.
The band has a PPG heart rate monitor (so did the original) and can automatically detect and track 10 different activities. This includes swimming as the band is rated at 5ATM. There’s no GPS receiver built in, but it can borrow the phone’s GPS to track your runs.
Sleep tracking and Smart Wake-Up will help you adjust your sleeping habits and wake up without disturbing those around you. Another useful feature is showing notification from an iOS or Android phone.
The battery will last up to 20 days on a charge. It takes an hour to charge to 80%, 2 hours for a full charge.
The Withings Pulse HR features a 316L stainless steel case with a hardened polycarbonate. It comes with a silicone wristband.
