About this project
Meet the TYLT VÜ Pulse, and welcome true heart rate monitoring to your Pebble Time™ and Pebble Time Steel™. Here at TYLT, we are excited to expand the capabilities of Pebble Health™ to help you reach your fitness goals. In addition to heart rate monitoring, we are bringing along a custom-made companion app as well as the ease of Qi Wireless Charging to your Pebble™, so that you can forget about the hassle of plugging in your watch when the battery runs low.
The TYLT VÜ Pulse brings true fitness tracking to your Pebble Time™ Smartwatch. Using the principles of Photoplethysmography - the same green light sensing technology found in top fitness bands - we are able to bring accurate heart rate measurements in real time. And through filtering the data with our algorithm, extraneous data, as well as "noise" are blocked out to bring results comparable with top selling fitness bands on the market.
The TYLT VÜ Pulse will track your heart rate over a designated period. When in passive mode, your heart rate will be measured every 30 minutes in order to provide you with baseline measurements throughout the day and conserving battery life. When it is time to begin a workout, enter active mode and you will receive readings every 10 seconds to give you a true measurement of your workout activity.
Pebble Health™ is a great baseline fitness app, recording steps, activity and sleep time, exporting that data to both Apple Health and Google Fit. With the TYLT VÜ Pulse, we integrate with the Pebble Health API to bring additional Heart Rate data from your wrist to the Pebble Health database.
Simply press the middle button to start tracking your steps taken, calories burned, and heart rate throughout your workout, and begin an interval timer that you have set.
When you complete your workout, the companion app will present you with an overview of your workout, and sync the data with Apple Health or Google Fit.
Throughout the workout, when maximum heart rate is reached, the Pebble Time™ will vibrate, allowing you to seamlessly initiate the cool-down phase of your workout, ensuring that your workout is as efficient as possible.
With the TYLT VÜ Pulse, forget the hassle of having to plug in your watch to charge it. Instead, make your life easier with Qi Wireless Charging. With the TYLT VÜ Pulse, simply place your watch on any Qi compatible wireless charger to recharge your watch without any tangles or clutter of cables.
At TYLT, we are proud to be leaders in wireless charging - having released several award winning VÜ products over the last 4 years. We see wearables and wireless charging as perfectly complementing each other, making proprietary cables a thing of the past.
However, the Pebble™ team added a forward thinking and unique accessory port feature, enabling “smart straps” to add additional functionality to the Pebble™ products. That enabled the development of the TYLT VÜ Pulse , and we’ve partnered with leaders in Heart Rate technology in addition to our expertise in wireless charging.
