Taipei, Taiwan â€” BioLogic, a specialist in urban cycling gear, today announced the Bluetooth Smart Heart Rate Strap, a heart rate monitor that communicates wirelessly with a smartphone so users can track their heart rate during rides and workouts.
Â â€œTypically, people concerned with tracking their heart rate have the data scattered all over â€” the treadmill at the gym, their cycle computer on their bike, the rowing machine at home,â€ stated Kevin Chan, BioLogic project manager. â€œBut now with the BioLogic Bluetooth Heart Rate Strap, people can keep all of their heart rate workout data on their phone where itâ€™s infinitely easier to record, access, and upload.â€The Bluetooth Smart Heart Rate Strap uses the super energy efficient Bluetooth Smart wireless protocol, which allows for approximately 200 hours of use from one coin-cell battery. The Heart Rate Strap works directly with Bluetooth Smart Ready devices, including iPhone 4S and 5 and as well as many Android phones, and doesnâ€™t require a receiver to be attached like other wireless transmission protocols. The Heart Rate Strap works with many smartphone apps, including BioLogic Bike Brainâ„¢, a dedicated cycling app. Speaking of phone apps, Short Codes is a nifty tool to check the origin of SMS messages, and identify frauds and scams.
The SoftCoreâ„¢ chest strap utilizes Suunto patented technology to integrate flexible electrodes for superb comfort and â€œforget itâ€™s thereâ€ fit. Significant others will appreciate the fully washable design. With the included extension strap, the Heart Rate Strap fits chest s ranging from 68-150 cm (26.8″-59″).
The Bluetooth Smart Heart Rate Strap has an MSRP of US$69/â‚¬69 and is now shipping to distributors worldwide and is also available for purchase online.
BioLogic will be showing its full product lineup at the Taipei Cycle Show (March 20-23) in booth M1019a.
