If one of your New Year’s resolutions was to get fit, technology can help keep you on the right track.
iTMP Technology is making sure of that by unveiling a new technology that allows the iPhone to double as a heart monitor and fitness tracking system. The size of a playing card, the SMHEART Link collects data from sensors such as heart rate monitors and cycling sensors and sends the information wirelessly to the iPhone. Then, by using one of iTMP’s iPhone fitness apps, a user can see their data on the display of the phone. After completing a workout, the information can be uploaded to eNewLeaf.com to add key cardio training and cycling metrics to an online fitness diary.
Current iTMP iPhone apps include iRPM+, a bike computer and heart monitor that can track any cardio exercise anywhere; iSPINNING, a app designed for spinning enthusiasts; and iNewLeaf, an app that tracks the intensity level of a workout for more accurate results. The SMHEART LINK bridge is compatible with a number of heart monitor chest straps, including those from Polar, Garmin, Nike, Reebok, Timex Ironman, New Balance and Numetrex.
The bridge is available at SMHEARTLINK.com for $154.95.
