Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitors

This is our official list of supported devices (and some unofficially supported ones too).

Our fitness games are compatible with all standard bluetooth heart rate monitors, they just need to be accurate and able to send live heart rate data to your phone.

There are two main heart rate monitor types: ECG and PPG (LED, or optical).

 

ECG chest strap monitors are the most accurate and we recommend these for use with our fitness games.

 

Some PPG devices may work for cardio but the accuracy can vary wildly under different conditions, including exercise type and where the sensor is worn on the arm.

Myzone MZ Switch

Myzone MZ Switch

The world's first interchangeable exercise tracker for the gym, outdoors or in water.

Monitor your heart rate with high accuracy on your chest in ECG mode, or with more comfort and ease on your arm or wrist in PPG (LED) mode. This is the most versatile heart rate sensor on the market, with a light indicator to tell you when it's connected, and built-in memory so you can track your heart rate even when you're not connected to your phone.

It's rechargeable via USB and can last up to a whopping six months on a single charge.

RRP:
£140.00

Type:

ECG + PPG (LED)

Worn:

Arm, Wrist, Chest

  • Switching between ECG and PPG mode is as easy as changing the strap.

  • The most versatile sensor on the market.

  • Choose accuracy or comfort & convenience to suit your workout.

Other things to like:

  • Neat compact design, including a clever use of one of the ECG sensor pins for recharging.

Things to be aware of:

  • Pricey, but worth it for the flexibility if you can afford it.

  • When strength training (arms) it's best to use ECG mode as the PPG (LED) sensors will get confused by blood rushing around arms during exertion and tend to undercount heart rate.

  • PPG mode on the wrist worked perfectly well for indoor cycling in our tests though.

Running Dynamics
HRM-Tri also has an accelerometer in the module that measures torso movement to calculate 3 running metrics:

Cadence — the number of steps per minute. It displays the total steps (right and left combined).
Vertical oscillation — the bounce in your running motion. It displays the vertical motion of your torso (measured in centimeters). HRM-Tri is compatible with several other fitness products but will only display heart rate when paired.
Ground contact time — the amount of time in each step that your foot spends on the ground while running (measured in milliseconds).
