Scosche Industries has announced the availability of Rhythm, a pulse monitor and app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The arm-strap monitor provides users with a way to manage, track and analyze their workouts.
Rhythm combines two alternating LEDs with a photo sensor to measure the user’s pulse. A built-in accelerometer allows it to adjust for movement during exercise, providing a measurement of calories burned, speed, pace, route and distance.
After pairing Rhythm with their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via Bluetooth users are prompted to download the free accompanying app from the Apple App Store. Once the app is downloaded Rhythm is ready to go and users can begin tracking their workouts.
Workout data is stored in the cloud at http://fit.scosche.com/Login/ . Users can access the Rhythm Dashboard for an enhanced view of their workouts, track lifetime training stats and share their achievements on Facebook and Twitter. The dashboard allows users to switch between multiple devices and still have their workouts saved in one central location.
The Scosche Rhythm is available immediately at Apple Retails Stores and Apple.com, ATT.com and AT&T stores, and Scosche.com for US$99.95. It will be available at Best Buy and other premium retailers in time for the holiday season.
