Chip Chick reviews the Finis AquaPulse Heart Rate Monitor. Here are some of the highlights:
The AquaPulse by Finis uses infrared technology to track your heart rate via your ear lobe, it is then verbally announced while you swim.
What’s in the Box
-AquaPulse Heart Rate Monitor
-USB Female to Male Extension
And that is about it. The review is not so much a review as a re-wording of a press release. The only real swimming quote I can find is "When I geared up my swimming my heart rate jumped to the 140s, when I took it easy it dropped down below 100. My resting heart rate was in the 60s. I had to make my goggles a little tighter than usual to compensate for the bit of weight pulling at the strap. The device stayed securely fastened to my ear the whole time and never fell off or got in the way." Maybe tech bloggers should stick to dry land tech?
