There are fitness monitors that can tell you everything and seeming do everything. The Scosche RHYTHM isn’t one of those devices. It works on the KISS principal – keep it simple stupid. This fitness monitor eliminates the heart rate strap that is commonly found with most monitors, but it also features a lightweight interface that is in a word, simple!
The RHYTHM was designed to be streamlined, and this arm strap measures the pulse using a combination of two alternating LEDs along with a photo sensor. The only physical buttons are there to control music, but that doesn’t mean this device is limited in what it can do. When paired with a 3G/4G device the integrated accelerometer can be used to calculate calories burned, speed, pace, route and distance. Not bad for a device that looks so simple.
It works with iOS devices including the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as well as a variety of Android devices, and can connect via Bluetooth from up to 33 feet. We can see people using the RHYTHM method to stay in shape.
