Consumer electronics company Scosche unleashed the Rhythm Smart+, an armband fitness wearable that includes a heart rate monitor that doesn't include a typical chest strap. The device can connect to smartphones, watches, and exercise equipment within 100 feet. It can withstand rain and sweat, and allows for easy sync to view and save physical activity on a mobile device or PC. Release date and pricing was not included with the product launch.
"Rhythm Smart+ marks a major step forward in the evolution of our line fitness trackers," said Kas Alves, Scosche Executive VP, in a press statement. "A smaller footprint, unrivaled biometric data accuracy and compatibility with the most popular health and fitness app available create a complete offering."
CES already has proven to be a great event to showcase casual fitness products, and Scosche joins several other companies in the market. The ability to accurately track steps walked, distance and calories, and then send or share the information is an excellent advancement.
