How would you change Withings' Pulse?

Regular readers know that I don't get to review too many devices, so it's a perk when one of mine appears on the HWYC timetable. Withings' belt-worn activity monitor was one of the best in the category, but it was a category that was rapidly being superseded by wrist-based hardware. After all, it's far easier to remember to wear a watch than it is to transfer a pedometer when you change clothes. My other gripes centered around the peeling paint job, perishable rubber clip and the fact that the mobile app didn't encourage you to get up. The company has already learned from these lessons, with the Activité and Health Mate now much improved, but if you bought a first-generation Pulse, why not jump to the forum and tell us what you thought of it?
