We want everyone to know what we’re doing. We tweet, text, and blog about our day so we can keep track of our lives. While those may attribute to our mental health in the sense of connectedness, it doesn’t really aid our physical selves. If we took that much notice to how our bodies worked, it could only be for the better, right?
While there are more than enough options out there, the Withings Pulse is hoping its special enough to stand out as an activity tracker. It’s a tiny rectangle that you toss in your pocket, and it will track the calories you’ve burned, the elevation at which you’re walking, the distance you’ve traveled, and also acts as a pedometer. While running, it can track the length of your run, and how far you’ve gone. As is the case with most activity trackers we’ve seen, it can also be worn to bed, and will track your sleeping patterns. Something rather interesting that it can do as well is measure your heartbeat. It’s supposed to be partnered with MyFitnessPal, a worthy app, and will cost $100. While it does have a clip or can be worn in a pouch on a wristband, I would be constantly terrified of losing it as it’s not very big.
