Last CES (Consumer Electronics Show) a lot of innovative tech and futuristic gadgets saw the light of day. Garmin also came with news. This week they launched the HRM-Fit™; their latest heart rate monitor, specially developed for women.
HRM stands for Heart Rate Monitor. So a heart rate monitor. What makes this heart rate monitor ‘different’ and ‘specially for women’? And how does it work? Well, you clip it to your sports bra. This way you can collect training data in a comfortable and accurate way while running, cycling, strength training or HIIT training. Or any sport. The heart rate belt prevents unnecessary chafing and improves comfort. At least, that is what Garmin puts out in a press release.
“The HRM-Fit heart rate belt is designed to allow women to collect valuable data as comfortably as possible. Whether you’re going for a run or taking a HIIT class, the heart rate monitor clips easily to the bottom of your sports bra and provides accurate heart rate and training data, so you get to know your body better, no matter how you move,” says Brett Rijsdijk, content manager at Garmin Netherlands.
