The Polar H7 Bluetooth transmitter is now available at Heart Rate Monitors California and will deliver heart rate with the iPhone (News - Alert) 4S and Motorola Razr Droid.
The key part about the Polar H7 heart rate monitor strap is that it requires no receiver or dongle in the iPhone, just the strap, and this cuts the cost of receiving heart rate, so it saves money over traditional iPhone and Droid setups.
The Polar H7 heart rate monitor strap is made from soft flexible fabrics so it is super comfortable and one can even remove the transmitter from button snaps and wash the strap in cold, or warm, water.
Moreover, the Polar H7 Bluetooth transmitter uses a low energy Bluetooth 4.0 transmission which allows the transmitter battery to last nearly twice as long, about 350 hours.
The key is that the phone needs an app that is compatible with Bluetooth 4.0, so this is important to remember when selecting an app for the Polar H7 Bluetooth transmitter to use with a Smartphone.
"The fitness technology for Smartphones is a category that is just starting to grow quickly and lots of new product developments are in the pipeline", said Rusty Squire, president of Heart Rate Monitors California, in a statement.
Officials with Heart Rate Monitors California said that there are some very unique aspects about the Polar H7 Bluetooth transmitter that set it apart from all the other Bluetooth fitness straps. First, the Polar H7 Bluetooth transmitter work with all of the gym equipment that is already integrated with Polar and that is a lot. Second, this strap also works with the vast majority of Polar watches too.
Company officials said that the Polar H7 Bluetooth transmitter allows individuals to use their iPhone 4S or Motorola (News - Alert) Razr Droid as a heart rate monitor for the gym, running, cycling and lots of other types of exercise.
"Polar H7 Bluetooth transmitter is a great solution for athletes that already bring their iPhone 4S or Motorola Razr Droid with them everywhere to begin with," said Squire.
"If it is along for the ride then you might as well use it for a fitness device too," he said..
