Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Accurate

Accurate:
"waste of money - misleading advertisement, it doesn't measure heart rate unless you stop moving, detach the digital display unit, put your index figure PRECISELY positioned on the back of it, without moving your finger for 60 or so seconds - makes you register your email - the calculated values are very gross estimates and seldom accurate - just a horrible product"
_
"It works well in certain features but unfortunately the most important feature of mileage is not accurate enough to make it totally a great product."
_
"The big problem is that it's NOT accurate."
_
"The heart rate monitor is inconvenient - you have to remove the device from its holder to use it - and it is accurate only about 3 out of 4 times."
_
"Steps are accurate in general, but beware."
_
"No pedometer is 100% accurate and if you are expecting that out of this product, you will be disappointed but rest assured the Withings Pulse O2 is more accurate then your lower key and less expensive devices."
_
"Customer service explained that their device would measure differently than the FitBit - well, yeah, but we expected it to be at least somewhat accurate."
_
"It works well and is accurate on the treadmill."
_
"Best device for accurate step counting and syncing to the app."
_
"Easy to use and accurate informationHighly recommended"
_
"Accurate, versatile, great interaction with web page!"

Apps

Apps:
"The apps is not accurate."
_
"My phone can do that with any of a number of apps, and it's just as inconvenient whipping the phone out as it is unclipping Pulse."
_
"Food Tracking rate = 2 + - tracking via MyFitnessPal, by syncing was slowTracking other activities rate = 0 - cannot add other exercise activities - can link to other apps like RunKeeper, but I was not satisfied with the syncLook Feel of device rate = 3.5 + - Not the most attractive, not bad is black + the size is unobtrusive, very light weightSoftware dashboard rate = 2 -seems elementary compared to the Fitbit dashboard."
_
"So, great product backed by a great company with software and apps that really work!"
_
"I am overall very happy with the Pulse and our Withings scale and the phone apps that Withings provides."
_
"The app never ever syncs in the background and in general is minimal, if not useless, in comparison with Fitbit's great apps."
_
"I like the option to wear this not only on my wrist, the display is easy to read (and customizable), the connection to other apps is awesome and the night monitoring has been very revealing."
_
"Great device, very comfortable and lots of apps to connect with that will support a full spectrum of things you can do to be healthier."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"it is good but has problems connecting to Bluetooth devices ..."
_
"Also the integration to the app and website was very clumbsy, inaccurate, the bluetooth sporadically uploaded the info and not reliable or in real time."
_
"My only technical complaint is the Bluetooth synchronization didn't seem to work the way I expected).But the clip and the wrist band are just the opposite."

"Mostly functions OK ....Bluetooth a problem with Versions only 6 months old !"
_
"Frustration with bluetooth syncAfter first use stop sync, I could receive support from Withings"

Button

Button:
"It is completely dead now after pressing the button several times to activate it."
_
"It is hassle to remove it to check the pulse, you have to press the button to see the time, screen resolution is relatively low and is difficult to read it outside."
_
"The button, the only button, is a week button that makes it very susceptible to failure."
_
"The button was broke, so I returned."
_
"I broke the button on the Fuel so my husband looked into the options and treated me to a Withings Pulse."
_
"I have had it since December and it seems to work pretty good except for the fact that the pulse and O2 activity buttons don't work on touchscreen anymore."
_
"Syncing the pulse is as easy as pressing a button on the top for three seconds."
_
"On this unit the button would stick in the housing as well, and it would constantly reboot, until you freed the button (kind of annoying)."
_
"This is easily done by holding the button down for 3 seconds with the app open, but should be a way to make it automatic."

Charging

"Did Not charge well."
_
"Very goodRight now I have charging problem"
_
"After about a year use the o2 sensor fail to read, following so communication with whithing a replacement was shipped out at no charge to me great service ....great product!"
_
"Would it be that hard to sell this with a watch strap that plugs up the charging port and protects the back sensor from getting soaked?"
_
"That said, the way they chose to get power to it also makes it SO NOT water-resistant there is an open charging port right on the chip itself not the best design for modern tracking."
_
"Not as good as the Fitbit Charge, but does have pulse and O2 reading."
_
"After answering two simple questions ( the MAC address of the Pulse and original order date number ) I was pleased to be informed a replacement would be provided at no charge."

Display

Display:
"But the display is not good esp in the daytime."
_
"The display is the problem."
_
"Also, the display is not as clear as the pictures represent."
_
"I have heard complaints in reviews about the display, I do not have a clue as to what they are talking about."

_
"I purchased the product to track my running, hiking, and biking activity but was never able to get the moon and heart to display which, as customer service informed me was how I am to turn on the tracking for these activities."
_
"Instead of a easy to read LED display there was a dim back-lit liquid quartz display."
_
"I like the option to wear this not only on my wrist, the display is easy to read (and customizable), the connection to other apps is awesome and the night monitoring has been very revealing."
_
"I have never had a problem seeing the display and it is nice to be able to look at the display and see your actual progress in real numbers, not little lights."
_
"Which leaves it to the clip, but with using the clip, completely loses it's purpose for easy up to date tracking, and at that point a $40 no display fitness tracker is a better option."

Exercise

Exercise:
"(I am never going to be able to run or do heavy sweating exercise)The Pros:Accurate step counting - yes I have walked off steps and checked, I'm nerdy that wayAccurate sleep monitoring - not sure how it works but it does."
_
"The good news is that the exercise still counts even if the Pulse misses it."
_
"This makes it very inconvenient to use during exercise or flying (if you are the pilot)."
_
"I bought it to replace the Fitbit Force that got recalled, and I found the Withings to be pretty accurate but have less functionality and be less consumer friendly...for instance, if I forgot to wear the Fitbit I could add in my exercise on the app and it would calculate the steps it missed, but that wasn't possible on the Withings app."
_
"Not really a good option for exercise tech if it can't handle humidity or sweat."
_
"I do exercise daily by working, walking around, and enjoying my life in other ways that burn calories albeit not from trying to walk 10000 steps a day."
_
"The good news is that the exercise still counts even if the Pulse misses it."
_
"The only exercise that it registers well enough is running and I don't run."
_
"2nd fell out of its wrist holder while exercising.. and is lost.. it lasted 3 days... BTW Who thinks an exercise device that is not sweat proof is a good idea?"
_
"A fitness device should be robust enough to handle sweat from vigorous exercise."

_
"The idea of this product is a good one, but from my experience with it, it doesn't function as advertised and if you aren't careful, it might just fall off your wrist."
_
"I give it four stars (from one star) as the device itself works great and my experience with Withings has been great."
_
"I am still coming to grips with the Withings Pulse O2 (Ox), but after 2 1 2 weeks use I am enjoying the experience."

_
"Not a big fan....it didn't fit my wrist well and wasn't all that accurate with the pedometer function."
_

_
"I received it within days and the new band so far snuggly fits my Withings and no problems with flying Withings!"

_
"I have used other fitness bands and this is definitely the worst out there currently."
_
"If you are looking at this as a fitness tracker, you will be disappointed."
_

_

Monitor

Monitor:
"This piece of Junk as no right using the name activity in conjunction with their piece of junk Activity, Sleep,& heart rate monitor...the only thing this does, that they say it does is SLEEP, it's doing a really great job at that since it no longer works...Pulse O2 REST IN PEACE!"
_
"I have to say, this is the worst of the available monitors."
_
"I love my Withings Scale and Blood Pressure monitors, though."
_
"It is a light device that one can almost forget its there and monitors a good amount of activities."
_
"My husband, Mr. High Tech, bought one too along with the BPM Blood Pressure Monitor...and he LOVES IT."
_
"It also monitors your sleep to let you know how much good sleep you are getting and at what time."

"He's had health problems and this is a good way to monitor him during the day."
_
"I like it, but the sleep monitor isn't always accurate."
_
"The Withings activity monitor has lots of features in a very small package - the problem is that it doesn't do any of these features particularly well."
_
"although with my job always worried the monitor will pop out still a great tool to monitor sleep and how many steps."
_
"This was rated as the best product to monitor sleep-well, it does show how many hours you were awake, in deep sleep, and in light sleep, but the graph doesn't list the times during the night this activity was happening, so it is hard to figure out."
_
"I have found that the Withings pulse, together with the Smart scale and Blood Pressure monitor help to provide good monitoring of health parameters."
_
"Just about the only good thing about this product is the sleep monitoring tracking capability which is superior to Fitbit's and comparable to Jawbone's."
_
"I have several other Withings devices: Aura, blood pressure monitor, scale, all of which work well and have since I purchased them all over a year ago."

Pulse:
"When the steps were ineffective, I was informed that I would receive a replacement Pulse free of charge (I had to produce proof of purchase, so save your receipt)."
_
"I've been wearing the Withings pulse O2 as part of a walking challenge at work."
_
"I have some trouble with the pulse breaking down (two have broken down to date), but it doesn't matter all that much as they have replaced them promptly, I also own their scale and blood pressure monitor."
_
"Unfortunately, my initial Pulse O2 failed (comes with 1 year warranty) recently and I had to deal with Withings customer support."
_
"The problem: contrary to the video and the information, the pulse does not read steps when connected to a bra, the collar of a tshirt or used on the pocket of a golf shirt."

Quality

Quality:
"However, the quality of the product has been disappointing to say the least."
_
"If this is Withing's quality control, then I'm not confident in my purchase."
_
"It is so frustrating that their build quality is so poor."
_
"It's a very good tool for daily activity follow-up, but it's more than that because it's a great support to track heart beat when you have to make checks from time to time in case of heart desease, and also this tracker give good indications of sleep quality for people suffering from sleep apnea."
_
"As I stated above the product is excellent quality and works very well with their website."
_

Running:
"(I am never going to be able to run or do heavy sweating exercise)The Pros:Accurate step counting - yes I have walked off steps and checked, I'm nerdy that wayAccurate sleep monitoring - not sure how it works but it does."
_
"It isn't waterproof as well, why my pulse broke two weeks after purchase while running in the rain."
_
"Very good for counting steps walked or run ... not so good when cycling"
_
"It's frustrating to finish a 5 mile run and have the Pulse miss recording most of it sitting in the Error 7 state."
_
"I purchased the product to track my running, hiking, and biking activity but was never able to get the moon and heart to display which, as customer service informed me was how I am to turn on the tracking for these activities."
_
"In addition, it also fails to monitor when I run."
_

_
"Does well on a run too."
_
"PROS:-Good battery life-Useful run detection mode-Insightful sleep dataCONS:-Screen is difficult in bright sunlight-Some inaccurate heart rate and run data-Cheap-looking watch strapsThe Withings Pulse O2 is a feature-packed and largely effective tracker, but you can find a better one with about the same money: http: amzn."

"Great as it syncs automatically, good for running walking, sleep mode is amazing."

Sensor

Sensor:
"The heartbeat sensor is now always incorrect."
_
"The O2 sensor is sometimes hard to get a reading."
_
"I found that it was somewhat annoying to use as an oxygen sensor, because I had to take it out of the holder to use it properly."
_
"Some problems with the software (Health Mate) since the purchase (probably caused by a flaky update), inaccessible sensor for pulse O2 measurement."
_
"The heart rate sensor is placed on the back which is very inconvenient to use, perhaps a deliberate design to discourage frequent uses to save battery."
_
"After about a year use the o2 sensor fail to read, following so communication with whithing a replacement was shipped out at no charge to me great service ....great product!"
_
"The pulse o2 sensor, which is the namesake of this device, gets wet easily, and will start to fail quickly--and permanently--if it's exposed to even small amounts of moisture."
_
"The heart rate monitor works well and the blood 02 sensor is accurate."
_
"The wrist band is cheap but the size of the sensor is nice and small."
_

Sleeping

Sleeping:
"Negatives: I found the aluminium wristband uncomfortable while sleeping; it made my carpel tunnel symptoms worse."
_
"During the past year I have had three devices and each has failed for various reasons (2 hardware (swipe failure and sleep selection failure) and one reflective coating issue)."
_
"That said, the touchscreen constantly becomes unresponsive, and this morning it is stuck in sleep mode."
_
"Product not really top drawer, not accurate (actually tested with an Adidas pedometer and counted steps)Sleeptracking feels like just made up figures, I remember not being able to sleep and waking up and then when you check the graph it shows you have actually slept both light and deep... totally not accurate."
_
"I also had problems earlier where the sleep graph had large gaps."
_
"After a full overnight charge, Pulse, Oxygen, Sleep tracking, and Hard reset all failed to work."

Strap

Strap:
"The strap broke in about a year and the replacement strap did not fit the unit properly."
_
"My only real problem is the silicone watch strap - my skin is quite sensitive to the material so I am unable to use it after breaking out into an eczema-like rash."
_
"Would it be that hard to sell this with a watch strap that plugs up the charging port and protects the back sensor from getting soaked?"
_
"Loses one and a half stars just for the terrible watch strap case."
_
"Wrist strap is horrible (leaves my arm itchy) but aside form that this is one of the most accurate trackers I have had."
_
"I had this problem with the Fuelband too whereas the Fitbit One's wrist strap was lined with a sort of microfibre which was very comfortable."
_
"The device is a little difficult at first to get into the holster of the wrist strap, but I am sure over use, it would be easy."
_
"Whilst this is something I would like to add, IMHO as yet nothing beats a chest strap for accuracy as whilst undertaking physical activities the results from the two mentioned products can wane away from being accurate."
_
"It was easy to setup and with the clip and the wrist strap it very easy to use."

Support

Support:
"Immediate problem solving and great support for an excellent product."
_
"Given the major problems are obviously failed design and or manufacturing, support will never be able to fix this, so low ratings will continue, and theproduct has been out for over two years with no improvement in customer satisfaction."
_
"Heard back from support, they said to do a factory reset, despite the fact i had told support i had already done that and the problems continue."
_
"The item was returned after an mediocre too bad response from Fitbit support (after a four day wait)."
_
"I contacted Withings customer support and they worked with me to solve the problem which included testing on my end, as well as getting the Withings developers involved."

"They don't have telephone support, but their email support is satisfactory."
_
"Immediate problem solving and great support for an excellent product."

Sync

Sync:
"Both work OK, except I had considerable trouble six months getting the scale to sync with their server, a problem that was vastly compounded by what was then very poor and very delayed responses."
_
"After only two weeks it was apparent the this item would be a greater burden to make work properly than was worth the effort, Was not only able to sync with both the desktop and the mobile phone, but the data was totally bogus."
_
"Not able to sync why buy this device I we not recommended to my patients"
_
"However, the band and delay in syncing were a little disappointing."
_
"If often takes four or more attempts to record (I have to sync my device each time with my phone to see if it recorded)."
_
"The physical Pulse device can hold approximately 7 to 10 days of data, in case you are away from your phone or otherwise unable to sync."
_
"They sync seamlessly and all the data is on my lap top and iPhone."
_
"Best device for accurate step counting and syncing to the app."

Track

Track:
"Unfortunately it only tracks some of my activity."
_
"It tracks run time also, which is kind of a hidden menu item that kicks on automatically."
_
"Tracks steps and elevation nicely."
_
"--tracks sleep activity well & the reporting is better than competitors to date--tracks other activity well, also (see design for what it tracks)--after the initial figuring out how it works, all is well because it's fairly simple to use--you can wear via wristband or belt-clip (both come with unit)--passed through TSA security while being worn on my wrist (multiple events, as I travel a lot)--I bought the large size based on reviews and the result is it's compatible to my wrist size (average female size)--the wristband is soft, squishy neoprene and pretty-much stays put--software is easy to use and provides good information and runs well on my PC(MS), Google Nexus and Smartphone (Android)--charge seems to last more than 3 days, although I charge every 3 days regardless--average cost wasn't expensive to buy, comparativelyCons:--neoprene band causes sweat because it doesn't breathe & the company is said to not warranty against sweat related issues--need better start up directions!"

"Here were are my primary goals for this unit: --help with sleep analysis --track steps --track heart rate --anything beyond is great, tooThis unit gives more in-depth sleep analysis than the other units I reviewed prior to purchase and that's the reason I bought it."

Tracking

Tracking:
"After a full overnight charge, Pulse, Oxygen, Sleep tracking, and Hard reset all failed to work."
_
"As far as the pulse goes it is a decent device like most other trackers it suffers because of the band which is uncomfortable and can cause skin blemishes, this also makes it a device you don't want to always have on."
_
"Withings software constantly sabotages its eco system, the major problems being the unclear tracking dashboard."
_
"I'm disappointed because that was the whole reason to choose this tracker."
_
"I really like my fitness tracker, but it has two faults."
_
"Great fitness tracker...only complaints are that it's not water resistant waterproof and the screen is unreadable in the sunlight."
_
"Great little activity tracker."
_
"So brilliant for tracking health."
_
"I love my pulse, I wear it day and night , it's fantastic to keep track on your lifestyle whether it's walking, running exercise classes or gym workouts."
_
"It's a very good tool for daily activity follow-up, but it's more than that because it's a great support to track heart beat when you have to make checks from time to time in case of heart desease, and also this tracker give good indications of sleep quality for people suffering from sleep apnea."

_
"It is a great tool but very disappointing that it is not waterproof"
_
"It is good, but the weakness is no waterproof function."

_

Wearing

Wearing:
"I've been wearing the Withings pulse O2 as part of a walking challenge at work."
_
"Step count is not accurate when wearing it on wrist."
_
"I bought this monitor, it works great but the cheap wristband that comes with it is crappy, I was wearing it and running the wristband broke off and the monitor fell in a street drain, I lost $120 bucks in the first 30 days of use."
_
"But....beware after only 4 months of wearing it I am on #2, my wife is on #2, my friend is on #2, why you ask."
_
"I bought this because I liked the design and the ease of wearing it; it was lightweight, unobtrusive, you could snap it on your clothing or wear it as a watch, or carry it in your pocket."
_
"takes a beating I am not gentle on my things, a bit of a clutz, light forget I am wearing even on my wrist, very comfortable"
_
"I love the product and sometimes forget that I'm even wearing it."
_
"The watchband provided is good quality and excellent for wearing at night when using the sleep tracker."
_
"Love this health tracker, I started off wearing it on my wrist like a watch but switched to the clip after about a month."

Website

Website:
"First, it would not synch or set up on my android device, went on the website to contact customer service, the website is hard to navigate."
_
"I bought this directly from the company website- the pulse broke after 4 days."
_
"Fitbit one was so much better....The fitbit one never gave me one minute of these problems including the app and website so I went back to that."
_
"THe app share features don't work as well as explained on the Withings website."
_
"So, if you take your pulse during a workout, the mode that I think made the most sense, it appears on the Withings App or website in red or orange indicating an abnormally high resting heart rate."
_
"As I stated above the product is excellent quality and works very well with their website."
_
"Easy to use app for phone and website."
_
"Love the website and app that goes with it."
_
"As far as the Withings website is concerned it has some very nice features but is very quirky and confusing."
_
"The Good:[1] Practical value for fine tuning health habits[2] Feature rich[3] Touch screen[4] Brilliant website and app[5] The priceThe Bad:[1] You need to remove the device from the wristband to measure HR Blood Oxygen."
