The Pulse HR is compatible with Android and iOS devices, and users will have to install the companion app in order to take advantage of the Global Positioning System features.

Not much is said for the minimalistic monochrome display, but it does the job of basic information conveyance - more details and charts on fitness, health and sleep metrics can be seen on the complementary Health Mate app.
