Wahoo Fitness just announced the world’s first Bluetooth Smart heart rate monitor which they have dubbed the Blue HR. Wahoo’s Blue HR works with the Apple 4S to provide heart rate readings in real time. It transforms your iPhone into a device that is capable of giving statistics of your heart in real time.
The Blue HR utilizes Bluetooth technology to communication with your iPhone 4S but the Wahoo Blue HR has to be strapped around your body. To use the Blue HR you must download the app for your smartphone which is presently available exclusively for the iPhone, then it offers information in real time.
