Guys - the Withings website states this is $99/€99 - far from free/subscription.
Aviv ben menachem The customer service is outstanding: Thankyou so much for all you've contributed to our community. Whenever you'd like towrite another review,we'd love to hear from you.
This sounds like a nice additional choice for consumers. Some of its shortcomings may be dealbreakers for some, but it will likely improve in the next version.
Hello, I'm Julien, Community Manager at Withings. I just read through the (very nice!) review and I wanted to clarify a point: it is perfectly possible to display the activity data for the current day in the mobile app, there seems to be a confusion in the review in that regard. Also as Matthew points out, and as the review mentions in the last paragraph, the product indeed retails at £89.95, $99.95 or €99.95.
Hey Julien, thanks for your response. I'm not sure why I was having the problems checking the current data on the app. As mentioned, the £89.95 price has now been added to the top of the article as well.
Interesting product. Can anyone offer comments on how and/or whether the pedometer feature is sensitive enough to register leg strokes when cycling, skating, etc?
Grateful for any hands-on experiences with activities other than walking and running.
No, it's not that sensitive. I got mine last Monday and took it on a mountain bike ride the next day, carrying it in a cycling jersey pocket. It knew something was up, but didn't track distance, elevation gain, or calorie burn at all well (compared to my Garmin Edge 800). The next day I took it on a road ride, and it barely registered anything. It's definitely for "feet impacting on ground" type activities. Now I simply leave it at home when I'm either mountain or road biking.
Just got mine about a week ago! The step counts is quite accurate, compared it to my Fitbit One. Heart rate monitoring is a big plus, especially for me since I do not have to wear a heart rate strap which I hate!! for my workouts. just a note, it will not be able to take continuous heart rate reading.
FYI, I got it from http://www.hrmdiscount.com/wit... , Amazon seems to be taking pre-orders at the moment.
Here is the result after using "Withing Pulse" during 5 nights (sleeping mode) : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/849...
"Catastrophique" !!! :-(
“Withings” is going to analyse my “Withings Pulse” in order to find what’s wrong about it.
I've given up on my second Withings Pulse. Each charge cycle on both of my Pulses got slightly shorter. At about one year, my Pulses were nearly unusable and the battery cannot be replaced. Try using a sleep/daytime activity monitor that quits 24-36 hours after a full charge.
