I can’t imagine working out without a heart rate monitor but never liked the chest strap. The benefits outweighed the negatives so like most people I just continued being uncomfortable and hoped for a company to invent a better way. Scosche seems to have done just that with their new award winning wireless pulse monitor. It attaches to your forearm, uses dual LED/optical sensors to get real time pulse monitoring, and sends everything to your iPhone or iPod touch (without wires). In addition to your pulse, you can track your calories burned, distance/speed, map route, and workout duration. You can even share your workouts via Facebook, Twitter, and email. Motivational voice prompts guide you through your workout. The armband even lets you control your music. The monitor works with the Scosche myTREK and Digifit apps. If you have never used a pulse monitor before, it will change your workout and your life! The price for this amazing invention is $100. For more information, please visit the Scosche website.
