One of the biggest gripes about heart rate monitors is the inconvenience of wearing a chest strap. The ePulse2 by Impact Sports Technologies, changes that. The monitor is a simple, one-piece unit like an oversize wristwatch that straps onto your forearm—no chest strap required. And it’s quite simple to use.
With only four buttons and an easy-to-read display, the monitor gives you a continuous heart rate reading (including maximum, minimum, and average heart rate for each workout), plus a calorimeter that will tell you how many calories you’ve burned. It straps securely onto your arm and is able to stand up to even the most rigorous activities.
The ePulse2 gives you the option to enter personal data for more customized feedback. Given quick inputs of resting heart rate, height and body weight, the monitor will help you determine target heart zones to maximize your workout. If you’re looking to take your exercise routine to the next level, the ePulse2 is a perfect exercise companion.
