Unofficially supported Sensors

The following optical armband heart rate sensors are not officially supported, however they did work in our tests. Readings were sometimes unreliable due to the nature of the light-based heart rate sensing method. Sometimes re-positioning was required to get reliable heart rate readings which our technology depends upon to work. They will probably work but try them at your own risk.

Why we like CooSpo Armband

  • Quick and easy to put on

  • Can be more comfortable than chest straps

Other reasons to like

  • Connected state LED

  • On/off button

Be aware:

  • Optical sensors can give unreliable readings

Reasons to like Polar OH1

  • Polar brand and device reliability

  • Waterproof 

  • Clip to position almost anywhere: on goggles against the temple or cycling shorts

  • Comfort and freedom of movement 

  • In-built memory

Be aware:

  • Optical sensors are not as reliable as ECG chest sensors and may not work with Beat Fitness Games

  • In our tests, this monitor failed to give reliable heart rate readings.
