To use it you download the app onto your phone, and then strap on the heart rate band. The chest strap is comfortable and not too bulky. To find out how I am doing I just check the app, and it also syncs up to other popular apps like RunKeeper. You can set up alerts to let you know when your heart rate is in the fat burning range.I am not up to running yet, but I have been using this for power walking and bike rides. I find I push myself faster when I have feedback, so I think this is going to help me work out harder and better.
I also got the Beets BLU Key Finder Bluetooth 4.0 Â for my 22 year old daughter, and itÂ is perfect for her. Last year she lost her keys and they didn’t turn up for 5 months (and of course they were in her apartment the whole time!) This fits easily onto her key chain, so that she can find her keys without tearing the apartment apart. She just hits a button on her phone and the Key Finder beeps so that she can find her keys.
It was easy to setup and use. It comes with an app that works on her Android phone. There are a bunch of other functions that include an RF remote control. The only issue my daughter has had is that if she lets her phone battery run down she has to re-pair the tracker to her phone since it loses the connection. Overall this is a huge help, and my daughter is pleased to have it.
