Show Description

This sleek watch eliminates the heart rate strap and tethers with your phone to give you metrics and workout data. On its own, it’s a heartrate monitor that uses Alpha technology instead of a traditional chest strap. 2 light beams and an electro-optical cell detect blood flow under the skin to determine your heart rate. Tethered with your phone, it borrows the GPS abilities to provide speed, pace and distance metrics. Powerful on its own, it combines with a fitness app to give you the most out of your watch and your workout.

  • Standard watch features like 12/24 hour time, timer and stopwatch.
  • Optical heartrate sensors measure changes in blood volume under the skin, and work best when worn snuggly, 1 to 3 finger-widths above your wrist bone.
  • Set your desired heart rate and get visual and audible notifications if you are working outside of it.
  • Continuous heart rate display helps you maintain a consistent pace.
  • Tether to your smartphone with Bluetooth to enable GPS metrics like speed, pace and distance.
  • Bluetooth 4.0 connection to your favorite fitness apps.
  • Silicone strap.
  • Tri-colour LED display.
  • Rechargeable lithium-polymer batter with USB charger.
  • Water resistant to 30m (but don’t push the buttons under water).
