Tue Jan 15, 2013 by Dave Phillips
If you’re working out, one of the best ways to measure your progress is by keeping track of your heart rate and staying in your zone. There are many heart rate monitors on the market that connect to exercise bikes, watches etc. In today’s world of tech you want to look for devices that use the ANT+ technology.
· ANT+ is the wireless technology that allows your monitoring devices to talk to each other. Leading brands design ANT+ into top products to ensure that you get the data you want - when and where you want it. Fundamentally, ANT+ gives you the simplest, most expandable and most reliable user experience possible.
· ANT+ stands for interoperability, which means that ANT+ products from multiple brands work together. Plus, because devices are compatible, you can always add to or update your monitoring system.
One such device is the Viiiiva:
Viiiiva is a Heart Rate Monitor that connects your full suite of ANT+® sensors to your iPhone®, with no awkward adapters and also works with your ANT+ watch or computer (Garmin, Timex). The Liiiink Connectivity Module inside your Viiiiva turns your iPhone into a cycling computer or running monitor; delivering all your ANT+ data seamlessly and in real time using the free 4iiii App or any of the popular fitness Apps. Liiiink also makes it easy to change your Sportiiiis settings from your iPhone. (Sportiiiis heads-up display system is another 4iiiii Innovation available separately). Liiiink is an exclusive 4iiii Innovations feature and only available with Viiiiva.
