Watching your heart rate while doing physical activity can be very beneficial for those who want to track how their workout is going. There are different kind of workouts and varying levels of where your heart rate should be. The most common way to watch this progress is with a chest strap monitor, but that can be uncomfortable and kind of gross after a hard workout. That’s why the Scosche myTREK is a better option.
This wristband is completely wireless and is much more comfortable than the generic chest strap. Your iPhone, or iPod will help you track your progress via Bluetooth with a range of about 30 feet. Aside from tracking heart rate, you can also track calories burned, distance run, speed, and pace when you’re using a GPS enabled phone. It carries a $129.99 price tag, but makes sense for the convenience, comfort, and all of the bells and whistles you can get through the app. You can set workout goals such as a target heart rate and receive voice prompts letting you know your progress.
