New Technology Doubles iPhones As Fitness Monitors
iTMP Technology, a pioneering smartphone hardware and software developer, has introduced SMHEART LINK, a highly-anticipated new technology that is poised to bring unparalleled health and fitness capabilities to Apple iPhone and iPod touch users. iTMP will debut and demonstrate SMHEART LINK and its iPhone fitness apps this week at Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
SMHEART LINK is a wireless bridge that enables any iPhone or iPod touch to double as a heart monitor and cycling computer, collecting data generated by distributed fitness sensors such as heart rate chest straps and cycling sensors on bikes and sending it to the iPhone for easy display and tracking.
In the past two months iTMP has unveiled three demo iPhone fitness applications that currently run in simulation. Their pending upgrades, which will be demonstrated live at Macworld and coming soon to the iPhone App Store, will be the only apps, among hundreds of other iPhone health and fitness apps, that actually listen to a person's heart to track and display their unique vital fitness metrics:
-- iSPINNING is a cardio fitness system and cycling computer that enables Spinning enthusiasts around the world to track and record their cardio exercise anywhere. Whether riding on a Spinner bike, road or mountain bike, iSPINNING workouts can also be uploaded to eNewLeaf to add key cardio training and cycling metrics to your online fitness diary.
-- iNewLeaf is a cardio fitness system and cycling computer that allows you to incorporate unique metabolic profile data from New Leaf to more precisely track and monitor the right intensity for "real results." Upload your completed workouts to eNewLeaf to add key cardio training and cycling metrics to your online fitness diary.
-- iRPM+ is a cardio fitness system and cycling computer that allows you to track any cardio exercise, anywhere. Upload your completed workouts to eNewLeaf or MapMyFitness to add key cardio training and cycling metrics to your online fitness diary.
The apps are available now, and free for a limited time, on the iPhone App Store. Once downloaded, users can take the apps for a test drive with simulated heart rate data to understand how they monitor and manage cardio fitness. The apps being demonstrated at Macworld Expo will be available in a soon to be released version 2.0 upgrade on the iPhone App Store in the coming days.
"We wanted to make the fitness metric tracking experience cool, fun, simple and custom," says iTMP CEO & Founder Michael Williams, "We've done just that. By leveraging the iPhone's technology and partnering with leaders in the industry, we are raising the bar in the fitness metrics monitoring space."
