MOOV Heart Rate Head Monitor
Moov HR, the new heart rate monitor, is laying its claim as the world’s most accurate heart monitor. Worn on the head, it looks pretty much like a normal sweatband, only that it’s fused with smart sensors.
Real intense coaching for you
Apart from boasting of being the best Moov heart rate monitor yet, the new HR wearable, the smart coaching is a tiny circular sensor that can be tucked away discreetly on either the sweat band or your swimming cap; it is protected by a small silicone case which is water and sweat proof.
The use of light-based technology
Just like in Fitbit Charge 2 and Apple Watch, the Moov HR wearable uses an optical sensor, thereby giving more accurate heart rate readings. The light sensors in Moov HR are more advanced than ever before!
Why it is more accurate
As per Moov’s research team, the Moov heart rate monitor derives the most accurate results from both temples on either side of your head. The skin is not the only thinner there but the increased blood flow reduces unnecessary sensor movement, giving more reliable results. Whether you’re running, doing body weight circuits or cycling indoors, your target heart rate zones will be hit throughout all your HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) activities.
To get a more comprehensive insight during your workouts, the artificially intelligent coach guides you every step of the way. The new Moov heart rate monitor, when used together with Moov Now, fuses your heart rate with motion tracking and in the process increases the number of activities you get to engage in be they indoors or outdoors.
Battery life and other features
A single charge will last typically six hours on constant use, if you are a moderate exerciser, though, it can go up to a week. Swimmers get the most out of it since wrist wearables struggle to get accurate measurements in that environment.
If you place a pre-order today, you get to buy the new Moov HR for only $59.95 as opposed to $99.90 when it starts shipping. The swim cap and sweat band are bought separately as accessories. The package of the two at its launch will set you back $99.90.
