Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) January 11, 2014
Best new fitness devices for 2014 have been compiled by the Heart Rate Watch Company and here are the five that make the list this far.
"We look at this stuff carefully", says Squire. He adds, "Beginning in 2014 we will become the first-ever retailer to independently test these devices in a Human Performance Lab and monitor the results, plus we independently verify distance accuracy data".
Test and Sponsor Quality Athletes
"We sponsor U Cal Berkeley Cycling, Tinker Juarez, Team Rockford, University of Florida Trigators, Silicon Valley Triathlon Club, Richmond Triathlon Club and many more", says Squire. he adds, "This keeps us in touch with the real pulse of endurance sports, along with our relationship to the MSU Human Performance Lab".
Five Best New Fitness Devices:
1.) Garmin Vivofit Band - Garmin Vivofit has batteries that can last up to 12 months, most bands require recharging every 3 to 7 days. The band also includes heart rate, the only other one that does is Polar Loop, and it requires fitting and does not provide activity recommendations.
2.) Polar V800 - V800 is the new uber-triathlon watch to be sure. While it will not be out until April, it has Bluetooth, swim, run, bike and more features making the Polar RCX5 completely obsolete.
3.) Polar Loop- Polar Loop is the trend setting activity band and the first to offer heart rate. WE still prefer the LED display to the standard digital of the new Garmin Viviofit, but the Vivofit conserves a ton of battery by going digital over LED. Polar Loop is also a little classier looking with the foldable metal clasp, but it does require fitting.
4.) Garmin Forerunner 620 - This watch broke the mold on running watches. It is the first ever to actually record data that is relevant to biomechanics, like run oscillation and ground foot contact time. Bluetooth, Wifi, touch screen, customization and many more aspects leave this watch well ahead of the pack, in fact, it is not even close.
Real Expert Advice
"If you want real expert advice there really is only one place to turn, nobody else has the data", says Squire. He adds, "Just call us at 866-586-7129 and we'll give you the real scoop because others can't - they have no scientific measurement, no data and no reality, this is the business model all of our competitors rely upon".
