SCOSCHE Industries, innovators of award-winning consumer technology, powersports, and car audio products and accessories, has unveiled RHYTHM24, the next generation of SCOSCHE’s hyper-accurate waterproof armband heart rate monitor at CES 2018.
A successor to the RHYTHM+, a 2014 International CES Innovations Award Honoree, RHYTHM24 continues the company’s advancement in fitness wearable technology with an all-new look, expanded features, and variable activity modes to ensure accurate biometric measurements are captured, stored and shared with Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ devices like smart/sport watches, smartphones, tablets, exercise equipment and more.
RHYTHM24 boasts key upgrades to its predecessor, including a 24-hour battery life, IP68 sweatproof/waterproof rating, five changeable training/use zones/modes, and two multi-modes (designed for biathletes and triathletes training and activities), an LED batter indicator and on-board data recording.
The recording feature allows users to leave their mobile devices behind while they do fitness activities and then upload their workout data later.
RHYTHM24 heart monitoring modes offer a wide range of data capturing, including heart rate variability (HRV) mode, which allows users to monitor the time between each heartbeat for increased stress and recovery tracking. The device also now features heart rate profiles for a variety of activities, including swimming, running and cycling.
The RHYTHM24 measures blood flow and movement to calculate heart rate and calories burned more accurately than conventional heart rate monitors. The monitor is a silicone and polycarbonate hybrid with a soft elastic strap, which makes it both comfortable and functional during indoor or outdoor workouts.
The device is compatible with hundreds of the most popular fitness apps, such as RunKeeper, Map My Fitness, Strava and all other apps that support Bluetooth Smart, as well as fitness devices that support ANT+ technology, allowing users to utilize their data across numerous platforms.
The RHYTHM24, as well as its interchangeable armbands in a variety of colors, will be available starting Spring 2018.
