SpeedCoach GPS with Heart Rate

We wanted to offer these rowers wireless speed and heart rate monitoring in one unit, simplifying their efforts and allowing them to truly focus on the rigorousness of their training routines.

Nielsen-Kellerman (NK), manufacturer and distributor of sports performance electronics, is pleased to announce the addition of heart rate to its SpeedCoach family of products. The SpeedCoach® GPS with Heart Rate now includes a Bluetooth® Smart heart rate monitor belt, enabling rowers to get real-time measurements of their heart rate directly on the display screen. Rowers will now be able to set goals, maximize training, identify a target pace and improve performance based off the real-time feedback. Other features include two flex fields, which allow rowers to customize display viewing, and time of day.

Based on NK’s patented and industry-leading SpeedCoach GPS software, the Heart Rate unit features a precision 5Hz GPS module for speed and distance as well as NK’s proprietary 3-axis Surge Rate technology for stroke rate. Completely wireless, the SpeedCoach GPS with Heart Rate also offers a 200-point memory, allowing rowers to store and review the details of their workout. With the option of GPS or impeller, speed over land or water is accurately measured and clearly displayed.

“There is a segment of rowers who are extremely dedicated to maximizing their training through heart rate monitoring,” said NK CEO Alix James, “We wanted to offer these rowers wireless speed and heart rate monitoring in one unit, simplifying their efforts and allowing them to truly focus on the rigorousness of their training routines.”

The new SpeedCoach GPS with Heart Rate retails at an introductory price of $479 until the end of 2013. The product includes a carry pouch, lanyard, battery charger, mounting strap, heart rate monitor belt and your choice color protective bumper. Order online at http://www.nkhome.com.
