Scosche unveils the Rhythm24 waterproof armband heart rate monitor

rhythm24Scosche is a household name when it comes to rolling out different kinds of accessories for smartphones, mobile devices, and road warriors who are always on the move. This time around, their genius has reached new heights with the introduction of the Rhythm24, a waterproof armband heart rate monitor. This next generation device will continue from where the Rhythm+ left off in 2014. Arriving in an all-new look while accompanied by expanded features, there are variable activity modes that will help ensure accurate biometric measurements are always captured, stored and shared with Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ devices including smart/sport watches, smartphones, tablets, and exercise equipment, among others.

What makes the Rhythm24 a whole lot better than its predecessor? For starters, it comes with a 24-hour battery life, accompanied by an IP68 sweatproof/waterproof rating, five changeable training/use zones/modes and two multi-modes (designed for biathletes and triathletes training and activities), an LED battery indicator and on-board data recording. This particular recording feature is very useful, since users can leave their mobile devices behind as they indulge in their respective fitness activities before uploading captured workout data at a later time.

Rhythm24 heart monitoring modes provide a slew of data capturing, starting with heart rate variability (HRV) mode. This mode will enable users to monitor the time between each heartbeat for increased stress and recovery tracking, while arriving with heart rate profiles for a wide range of activities. The more popular ones like swimming, running, and cycling are thrown into the mix, of course.

Using both green and yellow optical sensors, these deliver superior measurement across all skin tones. Not only that, it will integrate the latest advances in PerformTek sensor technology that measures heart rate non-stop in order to provide a highly accurate and consistent reading regardless of the exercise performed or physical environment one is in.
