In the past I’ve written a lot here about tracking my workouts here but I haven’t always had all of the data that I would like to have around my workouts. Recently Angela and I put money into purchasing heart rate monitors to enhance the detail around our workouts. We tried a couple of different heart rate monitors including the Polar H7 and the Wahoo Blue HR monitor. Both of which utilize Bluetooth Smart technology to connect and stream heart rate data to your Bluetooth Smart enabled phone. Each monitor rests in a strap that you wear around chest. After trying out the Polar it to be inconsistent in its compatibility and performance with many of the apps that we like to use. We switched to the Wahoo because it came highly recommended from a number of sites and is RunKeeper endorsed.
