external heart rate monitor

Forum
iOS & iPadOS
Hi all! I am using Pedometer Pro from sport.com and it is very accessible. One of its features is to be able to add a pulse rate/heart monitor. Does anyone have a recommendation of one that works well? I would guess they are bluetooth, is that correct? I want to increase my workouts and would like to be able to track pulse through different levels of conditioning, endurance, fat burn, cool down and that sort of thing. Thanks for any info. Are there any other cool apps that might help me along this workout road? Jim

You can get the Wahoo Fitness Blue HR Heart Rate Monitor for iPhone at wwwamazon.com

Hello! I do have the Polar H7 heartrate monitor wich uses bluetooth 4.0 and connects to my iPhone just fine. So far I have used it with Run keeper with no issues at all. If you have any questions, just let me know:) http://www.amazon.com/Polar-Bluetooth-Smart-Heart-Sensor/dp/B007S088F4

While Runkeeper works with the Polar heart monitor, does anyone know of an app that will give real-time heart-rate info for indoor activity? The only way I can monitor my heart rate with this app is to start an activity that's being done outside, but this is inaccurate because I'm spinning on an exercise bike and the phone is using location data to record my steps by my location movement. I really just want something that can tell me my heart rate and maybe convert that to calories burnt. The only way I can document exercise on an exercise bike in this app is by putting it in manually and that's pretty much useless to me.

I use the RockMyRun app, which is a music app. Professional DJ's create playlists that are genre or BPM based. The app has two ways of using it. If you choose the free method, you can use any of the playlists that are 45 minutes or less. If you choose the subscription method then you can use any of the playlists no matter their length. The app does have some button-related issues but I use it just fine. It takes a bit of playing with it but it is so worth it. Because of the incredible playlists, for the first time in my life, I ran 5.8 MPH. When I started using the app, 2.5 MPH was my best. It's because of the music. Highly recommended.
