Couldn’t have come at a better time. Demographically speaking, large swathes of the human population in the industrialized world are going to be older (read: geriatric) in the ensuing years. Might as well start marketing other products to the senior set. Oh wait, our bad! Turns out this new Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor from Sports Tracker is for, well, the athletic types out there. It’s got tons of features too.
Capable of a 40 hour lifespan between charges, the HRM can be stuck to a person’s chest or worn on the wrist before they embark on anything tiresome. It’s activated via a smartphone Sports Tracker app (real easy to do) and once it’s live, it saves so much data. In fact, you can take pictures and Sports Tracker will keep a log of them. How cool is that?
Pretty cool, especially since the data stored on the Sports Tracker app is sharable via social networks and the Sports Tracker site. Keep in mind, however, the HRM and your smartphone work together via Bluetooth, so keep your phone handy at all times.
To be perfectly honest, however, the novelty factor of the HRM is pretty low. There have been tons of similar smartphone apps and gadgets that were featured here before.
Sports Tracker’s latest costs 69.90 euros.
