Heart-rate monitoring belt uses Bluetooth 4.0 to work with low energy


Sure, there are some products on the market that monitor your vital signs. Do any of them use the magic of Bluetooth 4.0, though? Nope! Not until now, anyways. This new device promises to “spur the development of a whole new range of… health and fitness apps,” by harnessing the power of Bluetooth Low Energy to pump heart rate stats to your mobile phone. Lofty promises indeed.

Of course, there aren’t any Bluetooth 4.0 compatible mobile phones yet. So we’ll just have to wait and see on this one. My money, however, is on success. Never bet against a fashionable and utilitarian black belt. You’ll always lose. My grandfather taught me that.

The unit isn’t for sale yet but we’ll give you more information when we have it.
