Scosche launches its new myTREK (model IPTM)wireless pulse monitor and app for iPhone and iPod touch. The Bluetooth-enabled myTREK has a comfortable arm-strap design that fits over the muscular portion of the user’s forearm and provides convenient track and volume control. No bulky chest strap or wires are needed.
The myTREK utilizes two LEDs combined with a photo sensor to detect minute changes in the user’s blood pressure to accurately measure pulse. Its built-in accelerometer allows the myTREK to adjust for movement during exercise from the user’s heartbeat allowing for an extremely accurate measurement of pulse and calories burned. After pairing the Scosche myTREK with an iPhone or iPod touch and download the free app, users can begin tracking their pulse. Users can also track their previous workout stats such as pulse, calories burned, distance/speed, workout duration and overall progress with the integrated calendar feature.
The Scosche myTREK offers audio prompts for real-time feedback while work out and allows users to control music from the armband. The internal lithium-ion battery offers up to 5 hours of workout time. It is available for $129.99.
