Precision Pulse Heart Rate Monitor App
ithlete Precision Pulse is a precision heart rate monitor app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad that works with analog HRM chest straps and allows you to use GPS run & cycle tracking apps & listen to iPod music all at the same time.
Precision Pulse is designed to be an accurate, easy to use training companion that provides visual and sound feedback of all essential heart rate functions.
ECG accurate heart rate, average & maximum heart rates, personal HR zones, workout and lap times are all supported, together with sophisticated training load (TRIMP) and Calorie calculations.
Unlike other Smartphone heart monitor apps, Precision Pulse uses a small receiver dongle to pick up the signal from analog (5.4kHz) chest straps. The receiver has a headphone socket so you can listen to music at the same time as getting sound feedback from the app when you are below or above your chosen heart-rate zone.
Precision Pulse is also the first heart rate monitor app that incorporates Dr Phil Maffetone's 180 formula designed to maximise development of your aerobic fitness and ability to use fat efficiently as a fuel during exercise.
