My needs are fairly simple....I have tried (and liked) several of the Polar and Timex monitors that require chest straps. But this device is slick....especially becuase it links with an iphone app--and I was using the iphone for music on my workouts and/or for gps on outdoor walking, etc.

However, the Scosche Mytrek app is horrible....inconsistent, doesn't work, requires my iphone to be rebooted, etc. But there is an app, Digifit, that recogizes the device and works great. I use it every day. Haven't fully compared every feature of the two apps, but it's kind of a moot point as my needs are pretty basic, and the Digifit works great, and works and plays well with other apps (especially when multitasking). Without the Digitfit app, I probably would rate the device a 1 rather than a 4.

Only downsides are that the device needs to be chaged between uses, and overall the iphone battery life is an issue when using this (and iphone criticism, not a Scosche criticism!) If you're using the app, GPS, listening to music, occassionally surfing the net while working out, etc. it really runs the battery down quickly,

The hardware is good and measuring heart rate seems accurate; unfortunately, the MyTrek software is horrible.

There is an alternative compatible software, Digifit, mentioned on the Scosche website and mentioned in another review, which is excellent. Even though I had to pay a couple of bucks for Digifit, the combination makes it solid heart rate monitor solution for me.

I bought this device to help monitor my heart rate for my daily jogs. While the hardware itself is fairly adequate, the iPhone software is woefully lacking. After loading the Scosche app for the first time, the app promptly failed without warning and spontaneously quit. I rebooted my phone many times and paired/unpaired the device without success. The only workaround I found was to delete the app and reinstall it, which gave the app one more life until it went into a crazy crashing cycle all over again.

I'm giving the hardware 4 stars, and the overall package a 3 star rating because there's a perfectly good workaround to these problems: Digifit. Digifit is a nice dashboard that aggregates workout data from a variety of sensors including pedometers and heart rate monitors. So far, I've been pretty happy with using the MyTrek band as a sensor and Digifit as the accompanying software solution.

Background:
I'm a technology guy who runs long distances. I wanted a heart-rate monitor to tell when I'm overheating in the summer. (It's hard to monitor body temperature, but when you get too hot, your heartrate spikes). I had a Polar chest band system, which worked well but I really hated running with the tight chest band.

What this is:
It is an armband that goes on the thick part of your forearm - NOT your wrist. It shines green light onto the hairless part of your arm and uses the reflection to determine when your heart beats. The device does NOT have a display. You need an iPhone to view your heartrate. The charger plugs into a USB slot - it does NOT plug into a wall socket. It DOES use bluetooth to talk to your iPhone, so you don't need to plug anything into your iPhone to make it work.

iPhone & App:
I have an old 3GS. I used the Digifit app, based on the recommendations here. The app ("Digifit iCardio Multi-sport Heart Rate...") is free, but it costs $3 to have it connect to the Scorsche myTREK.

Setup:
I had no problem charging the device. It connected easily to Digifit. It took a while to understand the armband - there are two different straps included to fit different size forearms. I use the smaller one and it is almost too large. (And I'm a 200 lb. guy who boxes...) In Digifit, you want to press "Workout" NOT "Quick Start". "Workout" has the good features - "Quick Start" is for people who didn't pay $3. I did have to enable bluetooth on my iPhone. (I had disabled it to save battery.)

Experience:
Overall, it's okay. It seems to take a while for the device to "lock on" to your actual heartrate. It often says 72 at startup, when my non-workout heartrate is less than that.

I have been getting back into running for a while now and using the app Nike+ GPS. I got the Scosche myTREK because I liked the idea of getting more info than Nike+ GPS provides like my heart rate and calories burned. I must say this product is amazing. Scosche does a great job of providing everything you need in the box and then some, including 3 different size straps. The unit is small and you can barely feel it. The set up is very easy and the app is very easy to use. I found I was actually burning way more calories on my runs than Nike+ GPS was estimating. I highly recommend this great product!

I would have loved to give this product FIVE stars but I can only give it four, because it is not perfect.

You can read what the other guys say about it, but let me explain a little how this actually works. Unlike Polar and the other HRMs (I have two Polar models) this measures heart rate using LIGHT. It shines two bright LEDs into your skin and measures the light level. More blood, less light. Etc. So I guess modern light sensors are so sensitive that they can calculate the difference in blood volume.

Now, logically, you can figure that if blood volume is being measured, then if you MOVE YOUR MUSCLES that should affect the accuracy of the reading, right? Well, all I can say is, MAYBE. You can ask the manufacturer if that is the case, but that is my guess. The instructions even say that it won't work during weight lifting, so maybe that is the reason.

In my experience, NONE of the HRMs are really that accurate. My Polar used to be (both the original strap and the newer WearLink strap) but I decided to get the MyTrek because I hated wearing that chest strap. And besides, I started getting all kinds of interference when I worked out at the gym, so I was hoping a Bluetooth-based technology might be better. Well, none of the HRMs are really that accurate. I see my HR go way up and down, and it seems to occur more often with the MyTrek than with the Polar, actually, but again, you do not need to wear the strap on your chest and the signal seems to be better with Bluetooth.
