There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Now, onto the actual product's abilities. I had no problem syncing bluetooth and for a reviewer who said it kept dropping off my question is why does it matter? I only need the app if I want to set the BPM and only initially. Otherwise once I set it and if it were to drop (haven't had a problem with that) it doesn't matter the Pulse still goes on and plays. If I want to adjust the tempo I can spin the dial or tap in a new tempo.
Now as far as haptics and feel I can understand some of the other reviewers issue. However, the haptics are configurable in the app and I get get it to pulse at the highest tactile level and for the longest duration and feel it no problem. The problem is what do I configure "1" at if 2, 3, and 4 are at the highest pulse and width? Not a huge deal because I can feel the "lack" of feedback at 1 (so you're playing the inverse of a count in a sense). So it's configurable but that's not all that matters with this product. What limb you use and placement on your limbs is important as well. I figured I'd try my wrist because it made the most "sense." Yeah...for a watch. This isn't a watch. If you place it on your wrist, especially your strong hand (for drummers) it's difficult to feel with all the movement. So I figured, "Whats keeping time on my body as a drummer...oh my hi-hat foot....ahhh!" So I placed it on my left ankle (I play a righty setup even though I'm lefty) and it suddenly felt like someone was tapping me and my drummer reflex kicked in and I started tapping my foot to the "beat." It made sense then. It's possible that if you use wedges on stage you're pulse may be "drowned out" but I use in ears and I shouldn't be "feeling" anything on stage with no sub underneath me or wedge next to me. If you like wedges then a click is for you. No amount of haptics except a taser will replace an 800W sub under your throne.
The app: There have been some complaints about the app and it's metronoming abilities. Let me just say this, they have been supporting the app full time and when I got my product before I could use it the pulse had to be updated (through bluetooth). Since owning it two weeks the phone app has updated twice. They are staying on top of the product. One such update was how to turn on and turn off the pulse. Now you turn it a quarter turn and then two finger tap it to turn it on and off. Pretty neat way so you don't accidentally turn it off when you're adjusting it in between songs (or during if you're really good, but my ankle is too far away from my snare!). Anyway, they've also fixed the mismatched timing between the app and the Pulse. The light flashing of the pulse seems to be a little wonky still but I'm not using it as a visual metronome.
The fit was fine, I can get it tight on my wrist and no issue on my ankle with the small band. The Pulse is bigger than I expected, it's bigger than a watch, even a Rolex. Don't expect to be discrete about it if you wear it exposed such as on your wrist or on your ankle with shorts on.
Could the product use improvements overall? Sure, I'd like to crank the haptics just a bit more to make it more completely obvious to me especially to differentiate "1" but as a first product it ain't bad and they are going in the right direction. They just need to make it do one job and do it well. They seem to have the willingness to, just need to give it all to us. Looking forward to more updates and the ability to push the device to its limit.
