The battery of your Pulse HR is empty

When you first receive your Pulse HR, it is possible that the device will not power because the battery will be depleted. Charging the Pulse HR for a full two hours will allow you to install and begin using your tracker.

The screen of your Pulse HR is stuck on 1009

If the screen of your Pulse HR is stuck on 1009 or if nothing happens when you press the button, make sure that you have removed the sticker from the screen before installing the device.

You have trouble finding your Pulse HR via Bluetooth

  1. Make sure your Pulse HR is close enough to your mobile device (1 m/3-4 ft.).
  2. Make sure your Pulse HR displays "go.withings.com" when you press the button.
    If it doesn't, try to charge your tracker. If your Pulse HR displays the current time instead of "go.withings.com", try to perform a factory reset.
  3. Disable and re-enable Bluetooth on your mobile device, if necessary.
  4. Check if your Pulse HR has already been paired with your phone. To do so, go to the Settings of your mobile device, select Bluetooth and locate the Pulse HR in the list of devices. Select the small icon to the right of the watch and select the option to Forget or Remove the device.

If you still encounter this issue, reach out to Customer Service by clicking the Contact us button at the bottom of the page.

Note: Android users may have to change the permissions of the app to be able to connect via BLE. To do so, go to Settings > Apps > Health Mate > Permissions and enable Location.
