Dynamic heart rate monitors have traditionally required an uncomfortable chest strap and compatible watch, practically restricting their use to serious athletes. Enter the ePulse, the worlds first armband heart rate monitor and calorimeter. Known as the "peoples fitness monitor," the ePulse makes it practical and convenient for anyone who is interested in tracking calories burned to enjoy the benefits of heart rate monitoring while performing literally any type of activity, from running to walking to simply doing daily chores.
The ePulse works by integrating light sensor and microchip technology--the same type used in hospital heart rate monitors--to accurately read the pulse from the forearm. Once on your arm, the ePulse continuously acquires and shows your current exercise heart rate while calculating calories burned based on your heart rate and personal profile. If you use the ePulse several times a day, it automatically compiles your calories burned into a grand daily total, including when your activities consist of moving around the office or doing work around the house. The ePulse also measures your basic metabolic rate (BMR), which is a prediction of how many calories you will burn based on your personal data input, and then adds your daily calories burned to show your total caloric burn for a day. This function is particularly useful for people who are trying to count calories and lose weight through a program of diet and exercise.
In addition, the ePulse handles a number of basic calculations, including elapsed exercise time, average heart rate, and minimum and maximum heart rates. People with specific training goals can further use the ePulse to calculate optimal heart rate exercise zones for both burning fat and boosting cardio conditioning. The ePulse will then provide a target high and low range for your heart rate, with a green LED light telling you when you're in the target zone.
The real advantage of the ePulse, however, is its chest-strap-free design. At best, chest straps are an annoyance, and at worst are so uncomfortable that they alienate many people from using this type of valuable training and fitness tool. Women in particular report sensitivity to chest straps, and many won't use heart rate monitors as a result. The ePulse, by contrast, is comfortable for both men and women, allowing users to easily regulate their workout intensity and better attain specific fitness or weight management goals. The ePulse--which incorporates an easy-to-ready day/night LED display and is powered by AAA batteries--requires no programming to immediately display heart rate data.
The ePulse excels during the following activities: general fitness, aerobics, running, tennis, racquetball, golf, resistance training, weight loss monitoring, weightlifting, and daily chores.
ePulse is the world's first armband-only continuous heart rate monitor and calorimeter. Until now continuous heart rate monitors required an uncomfortable chest strap and special watch, essentially restricting their use to serious athletes. ePulse, the "People's Personal Fitness Assistant" now makes it practical and convenient for anyone who exercises or is interested in tracking calories burned to obtain the benefits of heart rate monitoring while conducting literally any type of activity from running to walking or simply doing daily chores. The ePulse brings the benefits of continuous heart rate monitoring to everyone with its ease of use and convenience. This is accomplished via sophisticated integration of light sensor and microprocessor technology (like that used in hospital heart rate monitors) that allows the ePulse to accurately read the pulse from the forearm. The ePulse is lightweight and features an easily read day/night LED display. It is powered by standard AAA batteries. ePulse requires no programming to immediately display heart rate, and with a simple input of personal data, it will also calculate calories burned and target exercise zones including in-zone alerts. ePulse works equally well for both men and women. This innovative product addresses the prevailing issue other heart rate monitors struggle to overcome�.the wearing of a chest strap! At best, chest straps are an annoyance and at worst, are so uncomfortable that they discourage many people from utilizing this type of valuable training and fitness tool. In particular, women seem very sensitive to chest straps and many won't use heart rate monitors due to this physical requirement. Now, ePulse comfortably conveys heart rate (and other important data) allowing anyone to easily regulate their workout intensity and better attain specific fitness or weight management goals with the touch of a finger.
