Today Withings, the leader in the connected health revolution, announced the launch of the Pulse O x 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 Ox also adds the ability to measure blood oxygen level in addition to heart rate, a first for the category. The updated Health Mate app now features real time coaching that turns the data from Withings devices into actionable advice.

Long term adoption To promote long term use and alleviate the inconvenience of single purpose wearable s 1, the Pulse O x is designed to be worn a number of ways whether it’s in a pocket, clipped to a user’s clothing, or worn on the wrist. Cédric Hutchings, CEO & co-founder of Withings explains : “Activity trackers have become very popular among health conscious consumers, but we recognize a responsibility to design devices that are very accessible for a large population to use consistently over the long term. It’ s the only way they can have a real impact on health”. New automatic background synchronization via Bluetooth Low Energy and wake up recognition also contribute to Pulse Ox’s ease of use.

Two vital signs Like its predecessor, the Pulse O x 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 COPD's. It’s also a way for anyone to quickly assess respiratory function.
