Boot Camp feature for Friday, May 17, 2013

More high tech fitness gear from Polar Electro.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Polar Electro is a Finnish company that invented the wireless heart rate monitor.   These days lots of folks are connecting those kinds of monitors and more to their smartphones.   Product Manager Chris Zoller…

“So we actually just launched a heart rate sensor that uses BlueTooth Smart and it talks to your iPhone 4S or up.  And we have an app that supports that as well that measures heart rate, GPS also based on your phone’s GPS.  And it helps you with a series of heart rate based features get the most out of your exercise, whether you’re in the gym or on your bike or out for a run.”

You can find the Polar Bluetooth Smart Heart Rate Sensor for under 70 dollars.   The fitness tech category is growing fast.  There’s more info on the full line up at Polar.com.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
