I’m a big fan of personal data tracking. Because of a genetic heart condition, I try to keep an eye on my heart rate when doing any sort of physical activity. I currently use a Wahoo Fitness heart rate strap + ANT+ dongle attache to the phone but I don’t use it that often either because I don’t feel like it I don’t want to go through the process of getting the thing on and just want to head out the door.
This new Kickstarter project seems to offer a simple solution. There have been strapless heart-rate monitors in the past but they’re generally considered to be pretty inaccurate. This monitor looks to be both accurate and easier to use that most heart rate watches. The display looks much more user friendly compared to some of the Polar and Suunto watches I’ve used in the past. I’ve already pledged, how about you?
