Alternative Smartphone HR sensors

Several other companies sell high quality Bluetooth heart rate monitors. The two other brands that I can recommend are the Polar H7 and the BlueLeza. The BlueLeza also transmits in BOTH Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+. This makes it popular for those who want to connect heart rate to a smartphone (iPhone/Android etc) or a Bluetooth compatible fitness watch (eg. Suunto Ambit, Polar V800 etc) or a Garmin Edge / Forerunner devices running ANT+. The Polar H7 transmits in both Bluetooth 4.0 and also Polar 5.4Khz analogue coded signal (Polar Wearlink) compatible with popular Gym equipment and older heart rate monitors from Polar like the RC3, FT2, FT4 etc.

Bluetooth Heart Rate for your Smartphone

With a fitness App installed on your smartphone you can plan, train, analyse and share your workouts. So many people train without a goal before they begin and with no assessment of the quality of a session at the end. With a good quality fitness application, like the Polar Beat App, each step is monitored and recorded. The Wahoo Tickr Bluetooth heart rate sensor is compatible with any iPhone from 4s onwards and most Android phone using V4.3 and beyond. Once you have the HRM sensor the choice of fitness App is yours. Some of our favourites include Polar Beat, Strava, Runkeeper, Endomondo, MapMyFitness and many more. (most offer a very comprehensive FREE version)
