NEW YORK – February 6, 2014 – Pyle Audio®, manufacturers of outdoor recreational sports gear and home, car and pro audio equipment, announces the Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor and Watch (PSBTHR70). Pyle’s Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor and Watch measures heart rate, average speed, distance traveled, number of steps taken, lap speeds and calorie consumption. The data can then be wirelessly transmitted via Bluetooth Smart technology to a number of third party apps on compatible iOS and Android devices including RunKeeper, MapMyRun and WahooFitness. There are many reasons why people monitor their vital signs and with Pyle’s Bluetooth device, you can get accurate data in any environment and design your very own personal fitness regimen. Additionally, the watch and heart rate monitor are water resistant protecting the devices from rain or sweat. The Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor and Watch from Pyle Audio is available in black, green, blue or pink for $69.99 at www.PyleAudio.com.
Full release available after the jump – and a few thoughts from Mike:
The Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor and Watch comes complete with four distinct modes:
• Recall Mode – stores data for 10 workouts and 100 lap records
• Sync Workout Mode – transfers workout data to smartphone
• Timer Mode – countdown timer (stop, start, pause)
• Workout Mode – measures distance traveled
In addition to its workout functions, the watch can display time in a 12 or 24 hour format and features optional hourly chimes and daily alarms. It also comes complete with a built-in calendar system.
“We’ve long been providing customers with high-quality home, pro and car audio products,” said Abe Brach, Vice President. “It was the natural next step to bring our decades of experience with personal technology products to the health and fitness market. During any workout either on land or in water the Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor and Watch is a must have.”
The PSBTHR70 from Pyle Audio is available in black, green, blue or pink for $69.99 at www.PyleAudio.com.
Mike’s Thoughts: Fitness wearables should have a big year in 2014 – and Pyle’s $70 product puts the audio maker right in the mix. There is a fine-line between casual wearables and something for athletes, though it looks like the Pyle PSBTHR70 (great product name?) should be ideal for people just trying to more accurately track workouts.
