One of the companies we’ve continually worked with since starting Techaeris has been TYLT and now they’re back with another Kickstarter campaign. This time the company’s focus is squarely on Pebble. The TYLT VU Pulse is a protective case with wireless charging and heart rate monitoring capabilities for your Pebble Time. It’s a really nifty new accessory for all you Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel owners.
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.
TYLT has run a number of very successful Kickstarter campaigns and this one should be no different. If you’re a Pebble Time owner and are interested in supporting this Kickstarter, just hit the link below.
