Before you buy a Withings Pulse, you should know about the new Withings "Pulse O2" which is just now hitting the store shelves.
The Pulse O2 appears to be a new version of the Pulse. But it's actually identical to the original Pulse with a wrist-band holder added. The Pulse O2 retails for $20 more than the Pulse, and you can buy the wrist-band holder separately for $15 (directly from Withings, and probably from Amazon before long).
The Pulse O2 has the ability to measure your blood oxygen level. But so does the original Pulse after you download the latest firmware update. This new feature uses the same hardware as the original Pulse--the sensor on the back of the device where you place your finger to measure your heart rate.
The Pulse O2 comes with a wrist-band holder. You can slide the Pulse into it and wear it like a wrist-band style tracker, such as the Fitbit Flex and Jawbone UP. But please note: the Pulse is not as water-resistant as other wrist-trackers, so you must take it off when showering or when jogging or cycling in the rain.
Also, note that in order to use the heart rate or O2 sensor, you must take the Pulse out of the wrist-band holder so that you can place your figure on the sensor on the back of the device. In other words, you don't get real-time heart rate monitoring with the Pulse. (But to be fair, most other trackers in this price range don't measure heart rate or O2 levels at all.)
Again, the only difference between the original Pulse and the Pulse O2 is the O2 costs $20 more but includes a wrist band holder that's available separately for $15. I recommend buying the original Pulse instead of the O2 and saving $20.Read more ›
I owned both the Pulse and the One at the same time for a few days and I had my gripes with both, but the Fitbit won in the end. I will list how the Withings is better:
- Easy to slip in and out of the belt clip
- Touchscreen and history is a great addition.
- Bluetooth 2.0 support, no need for a dongle for your PC. (I own an Android)
- The heart rate monitor is a neat feature, but it is nothing my phone can't do.
- Micro USB charging is convenient and you don't need a proprietary device to charge.
- Elevation is measured in feet, and not floors.
- The battery life is impressive, but isn't any better than the Fitbit One. I never went over a week without the "20%" notification popping up.
Now I will list its drawbacks from the One:
- The overall build quality feels cheaper.
- Belt clip is not as tight and it HAS disconnected from my body a couple times.
- Soft touch plastic scratches way to easy.
- No vibrate function, which is honestly very handy with my Fitbit.
- No right/left handed options. So when it it clipped on your right side the display is upside down.
- No way to calibrate your stride.
** 8 Aug 2013 - I don't know if the Fitbit does this, but I lost an entire day of activity because my Pulse didn't turn off of sleep mode. I think that this device would benefit from a firmware update that would automatically turn off sleep mode when it detects steps for a certain amount of time.Read more ›
It's very small, almost too small. I am very concerned about losing it, but I love the way it integrates into the Withings ecosystem.
The build quality is not bad, it is only 8grams so it's feather light. BUT: Don't wear it in the shower like you can w/ the Nike Fuel, or it will end poorly - it's not water resistant.
1) I am having trouble getting to read my pulse. I can't seem to figure out the 'sweet spot' for my finger on the rear sensor. I with the display would tell me when I am in a good spot and it's measuring my pulse so I know to stay still.
2) I like the sleep analysis...but I have NO idea what to do w/ the data. Deep sleep? Ok? Light ? Yup. But how do I make my sleep better?
Also, I wish I could set it up to automatically detect the time and flip to sleep mode. I don't like having to manually do it.
3) I wish there was more feedback on the UI. Beeps or haptic feedback would be great. I also wish it had an alarm and vibration to wake me up. It's on my wrist, why not take advantage of that placement and be a wake up alarm?
4) The UI is simple and very nice but not very readable in direct Sunlight
5) The iPhone App is great - I can manually sync the data even while the app is not open
6) No way to sync to a PC or Mac...you must have an iPhone or Android device to set it up.

I liked it especially because it could be placed in the pocket and ankle. The accompanying App is also useful.
The downside is that it is small and easy to loose. Read more
