Earlier in the year we were kindly sent a BlueLeza Heart Rate sensor & chest strap to test / review. We published our initial reaction to this great fitness accessory back in April. We loved it then and we still love it now. So it’s about time we gave you some more information on the BlueLeza Heart Rate belt.
If you want to skip the review and jump straight to a summary then here it is > if you’re after a reliable, comfortable and accurate heart rate sensor to connect to any ANT+ or Bluetooth 4.0 device then look no further than this innovative product.
We’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding the accuracy of the new breed of OFF THE WRIST strapless heart rate monitor devices. Products like the Mio Fuse, Garmin Vivosmart HR, Fitbit Charge HR and Polar A360. We thought we’d do our own little test ride while on a day trip out to North Wales. Please note … this test was far from PERFECT. My Edge unit had AUTO-PAUSE enabled so it stopped recording each time I stopped (and I did get lost at one point). This is just ONE comparison. I have performed several other tests since this one, details below …
Over the last few decades, the stream of data available to life sciences companies has grown from a trickle to a tidal wave: genetic and genomic portraits of individual patients, metabolomic and proteomic profiles, real-world data from wearables measuring everything from heart rate variability to blood glucose levels, detailed patient clinical histories from electronic health records. The total volume of health data in the world is expected to soar to 2,314 exabytes by 2020, 15 times what it was in 2013. By some estimates, if this data were stored in a stack of tablet computers, the stack would reach 82,000 miles high.[…]
Follow your heart to better recovery
Analyzing power files doesn’t make you faster. Training Stress Score (TSS) and Training Stress Balance (TSB) charts cannot say for certain whether you should go hard tomorrow or not. And a simple heart rate monitor won’t tell you when you are sick until it’s too late. But heart rate variability, or HRV for short — that’s a metric that could well be useful.
Will ‘Smart’ Solutions Really Transform Cardiology?
Smart technologies are often touted as the answer to some of cardiology’s greatest challenges in patient care and practice. But where does hyperbole end and reality begin with artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning? Even the most skeptical cardiologists can’t help but feel the digital waves lapping at […]
