Sure, keeping active is a key to staying healthy, but there’s more to wellness than working out. The flash drive-sized Withings Pulse slips or clips easily into a pocket, and keeps track of an array of data that can contribute to overall improved fitness. With a simple, 128 by 32 pixel OLED touch screen, the device is an elegant, understated solution to the challenge of monitoring health, while staying in the background. Wearing it on a wristband overnight lets the $99 device analyze your tossing and turning, showing how soundly you slept. In the background as you go about your day, the Pulse logs steps and calories burned, as well as elevation climbed — and it knows the difference if you took the escalator or the stairs. As a running monitor it can keep track of time and distance. And, true to its name, the activity tracer can also calculate heart rates by pressing a finger onto an embedded sensor.
