3.0 out of 5 stars Great for ensuring you keep active but could be improved, 13 July 2016
I bought this as a replacement for an older Pulse. The older one never measured heart rate and oxygen levels as it should and getting support was difficult. This new one works perfectly and is great for ensuring I don't get lazy and keep up activity levels daily. The display is good and synching with smartphone works well. It claims to synch automatically but this only happens if your smartphone's Bluetooth is permanently on. I don't do this and synch manually - this is easy. The one annoying thing is that if you put it in the wriststrap (which it slides into easily) it can be difficult getting it out - which is necessary to use the heart rate and oxygen measurement. If Withings could give some sort of release mechanism the rating would be higher but I don't like having to risk forcing it to get it out of the strap.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent way to practice, 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having flashcards of the Arabic alphabet allows you to group the letters by shape to learn them much more quickly. When reading Arabic at my level (beginner) referring to the large print letters is a real help - so many other books print the letters so small that you have difficulty working them out. In addition to the letters there is guidance on joining letters and short phrases to practice.Used with the "Gateway" books, these flashcards are a real boon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best introduction to reading and writing Arabic, 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is different! Too many books for those learning Arabic are academic and make huge leaps. They assume that simply by presenting the alphabet the learner will be able to read and write by the next page. This series of "Gateway" books proceeds stage by stage with the chance to consolidate and review. As a result what seems like an impenetrable script becomes approachable and the learner can read and write simple words quite quickly.
This is an excellent series and, from personal experience, I can highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and well planned introduction to Arabic, 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gateway to Arabic: Book 2
So many of the books for learners of Arabic make huge jumps and don't pay due attention to the hurdle that reading and writing Arabic present for the English speaker. This book (and Book 1) set everything out clearly with ample practice and carefully planned stages. The approach is practical rather than academic and allows you to read and write basic words quite quickly. I have made progress with these books that I have not been able to make with other resources. I strongly recommend this series for anyone starting to learn Arabic.
