In the market for an activity tracker? Well there are plenty on the market to choose from. If you're looking for one that will give you personalized coaching and allow you to make wellness a sort-of game, while giving you the option to wear it anywhere, you'll want to have a look at the Withings Pulse O2.

The Withings Pulse O2 gives you the standard activity tracker features--step counter, distance walked, calories burned, heart rate and sleep analysis. It also gives another dimension to the "distance walked" feature with its "elevation climbed" feature, so that you can keep up with all those times you have to walk uphill both ways to get wherever you're going. And it can measure your blood oxygen level, adding a dimension to the "heart rate" feature.

Perhaps one of the best features of the Withings Pulse O2 is that you can wear it just about anywhere. Some people may not like the idea of wearing a bulky device around their wrist, as you would wear most activity trackers. With the Pulse O2 you have the option of wearing it as a watch, using the clip accessory to clip it on your clothing or stowing it in your pocket (or wherever else you can find a place to put it).

The Pulse O2 comes with an app that allows you to sync your data with your smart phone, as do most activity trackers. Pulse also has an interactive coach that gives you healthy reminders and helps guide you through workouts and goals. With Pulse's app, you can also turn your journey to a healthy life into a game, earning "activity badges" and increasing your score when you exercise and practice healthy living.
