Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) July 14, 2011
SmartHF announces today the release of its SmartHRM Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor that allows users to monitor their heart rate, as well as speed, distance and calories burned as they run, cycle, hike, row or exercise. The monitor works with free Android fitness apps, allowing users to work out in their target heart rate zone and get maximum benefit from their efforts. “Working out with a heart rate monitor answers the question, ‘How am I doing?’" explains Dale Hollingsworth, president. "When you know your heart rate, you can adjust your pace, get a better workout, and visibly see your progress. It's a great motivational boost - whether you're looking to lose a few pounds or training for a marathon."
The SmartHRM Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor is a comfortable, adjustable chest strap that provides a continuous, accurate heart rate reading while you exercise. The heart rate is displayed on an Android phone (version 2.0 and later), using a compatible fitness app. No additional devices or accessories are needed. The monitor also features a programmable vibrate function that vibrates when you are below or above your target zone. Other features include: seven-day data storage, a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and a two-color LED light that lets the user know the monitor’s status.
The SmartHRM Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor is available now at smarthf.com for $99.00.
The SmartHRM Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor works with popular running apps, including JogTracker, Jogger, and SmartHRM Fitness app, all available for free from the Android marketplace. In addition to heart rate, these apps display distance, speed, calories burned and the user’s GPS route. Each app can automatically send the data securely to the companion website, where users can track their progress, set goals, and share accomplishments.
