Apple Watch support would be incredible.

Could just strap the Apple Watch to my Ronin or use it while also filming with another camera.

I film concerts and have cameras sitting on stage while I am moving around and the ability to start video while far away at the click of a button from my watch would be incredible!

Very interested in this tool, but won't buy it unless it supports the Apple Watch.

More or less works, but very rough around the edges

It took some time to get my Pulse working, and it needs to be activated in very particular way, namely:
Turn on camera (Canon 6DMk2)
Turn on Pulse
Connect Pulse via USB
Open iOS app
Otherwise it won’t work at all. HDR doesn’t work (presents an error message) and long exposure doesn’t either (takes a shot at a shutter speed besides what I specified). Bluetooth preview image is hit or miss too. I also verified that I’m at the latest firmware :-/

I got this for time lapses, which do work though.

Hey Chris. Thanks for sharing your experience so far! This sounds like your Pulse is not functioning properly. The trouble you're having with the HDR and long exposure features isn't normal and we'd love to help correct this if possible. This could be as simple as resetting your Pulse or we could decide to replace your unit. Please send us an email at so that we can begin troubleshooting! We look forward to resolving this.

A very dodgy product that works in whimsical ways. This company should be scrutinized for suspect business practices. The Pulse is a worthless tool that works almost never. Still can’t successfully make the Bluetooth work in 2018. Stay away from this company as you’ll be very disappointed.

Hi Neal. Thanks for sharing your perspective. I'm sorry to hear that it hasn't been a great experience so far. Pulse had some connection issues early on, but we haven't seen any known connection problems in over a year. If you'd be willing to submit a bug report through the app or send us an email we'd love to work through this and get your Pulse working properly. It's possible that you have a defective unit. Please send us an email at if you'd like to revisit this so that we can help!
