Wahoo Fitness, the American tech-fitness specialist, has announced the addition of the TICKR FIT, in a bid to solve the issue of comfort around heart rate monitors by placing it on the forearm.
The latest addition to the TICKR heart rate monitor family, the Wahoo TICKR FIT aims to deliver the accuracy of a chest strap with the comfort of being on your arm, providing heart rate and calorie burn data. It is also equipped with Bluetooth and ANT+ technology to pair with fitness apps, smartphones, and GPS bike computers and watches.
Worn on the forearm, the TICKR FIT is designed for workouts with a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 30 hours.
Wahoo Fitness heart rate product manager Taryn Lushinsky said: “Even though a chest strap offers the highly accurate readings, it’s not the most comfortable option for many people.
“We’ve worked hard to maintain the accuracy and simplicity that Wahoo is known for, while offering something a little different for those customers. The TICKR is one of our most popular products, and we feel the addition of the FIT brings another level of versatility and technology to the already user-centric product line.”
The TICKR FIT joins the TICKRx and the best-selling TICKR in Wahoo’s heart rate monitor family.
