A lot of smartwatches don’t have particularly good battery life, thanks to its large-ish displays which we expect probably contributes to its battery drain. If you want a wearable that focuses on fitness, then fitness trackers might be a better solution as they tend to offer up better battery life, and Withings might have something for you.
The company has recently announced the launch of the Withings Pulse HR fitness tracker which according to the company, will offer up to 20 days of battery life which basically means that you could use it for almost an entire month before needing to recharge it. Note that the Pulse HR isn’t the first “Pulse” tracker that the company has launched, so in reality it’s kind of like the company is bringing back an older lineup.
In terms of specs and features apart from its 20 day battery life, the Pulse HR will feature a PPG heart-rate sensor that will offer continuous monitoring in workout mode. There will also be a vertical OLED display, standard features like being able to receive phone notifications, and also water resistance up to 50m in depth.
The Pulse HR is also somewhat affordably priced at $129.95 and is expected to be made available come 5th of December.
