Recommended HRMs

Our apps should work with most Bluetooth Smart or Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth 4.0 and above) heart rate monitors (HRMs). They do not however work with ANT+ devices.

Connecting your HRM to our apps

To connect your HRM to our apps put your HRM in pairing mode. Most HRMs only work with one device/app at a time and must be un-paired with whatever they are currently paired with for this to work (this includes the iOS and Android Bluetooth settings).

A few HRMs we like

Since so many people ask us about heart rate monitors that work well with our apps, we have made a simple list of ones we like and often test our apps with. Please note this list is offered as a courtesy and the actual devices are not offered, sold, or supported by us.

US Amazon links

For people who live in the United States or are able to ship items from there.

If you prefer wrist based heart rate monitors the Mio Fuse Heart Rate Monitor is a great choice. It is our personal favorite.

If you would instead like a chest strap mounted heart rate monitor the Polar H7 works well. The newer version of this the Polar H10 is also excellent.
