Important Note: Since ePulse2 has a rechargeable battery some units (less than 5%) may discharge due to shelf life. The battery can be brought back with a simple procedure if this is the case. The users must plug in the charger for ten minutes and then hold the on button down for 15 seconds and release. The charging circuit will engage and operation will be normal. Dynamic heart rate monitors have traditionally required an uncomfortable chest strap and compatible watch, practically restricting their use to serious athletes. Enter the ePulse2, the world?s first armband heart rate monitor and calorimeter. Known as the “people’s fitness monitor,” the ePulse2 makes it practical and convenient for anyone who is interested in tracking calories burned to enjoy the benefits of heart rate monitoring while performing literally any type of activity, from running to walking to simply doing daily chores.
The ePulse2 accurately reads your pulse from your forearm, eliminating the need for uncomfortable chest straps.
The ePulse2 works by integrating light sensor and microchip technology–the same type used in hospital heart rate monitors–to accurately read the pulse from the forearm while in motion. Once on your arm, the ePulse2 continuously acquires and shows your current exercise heart rate while calculating calories burned based on your heart rate and personal profile. If you use the ePulse2 several times a day, it automatically compiles your calories burned into a grand daily total, including when your activities consist of moving around the office or doing work around the house. The ePulse2 also measures your basic metabolic rate (BMR), which is a prediction of how many calories you will burn based on your personal data input, and then adds your daily calories burned to show your total caloric burn for a day. This function is particularly useful for people who are trying to count calories and lose weight through a program of diet and exercise.
In addition, the ePulse2 handles a number of basic calculations, including elapsed exercise time, average heart rate, and minimum and maximum heart rates. People with specific training goals can further use the ePulse2 to calculate optimal heart rate exercise zones for both burning fat and boosting cardio conditioning. The ePulse2 will then provide a target high and low range for your heart rate, with an LED light telling you when you’re in the target zone.
The real advantage of the ePulse2, however, is its chest-strap-free design. At best, chest straps are an annoyance, and at worst are so uncomfortable that they alienate many people from using this type of valuable training and fitness tool. Women in particular report sensitivity to chest straps, and many won’t use heart rate monitors as a result. The ePulse2, by contrast, is comfortable for both men and women, allowing users to easily regulate their workout intensity and better attain specific fitness or weight management goals. The ePulse2–which incorporates an easy-to-ready day/night OLED display and is powered by a rechargeable battery–requires no programming to immediately display heart rate data.
The ePulse2 excels during almost any activity, including general fitness, aerobics, running, tennis, racquetball, golf, resistance training, weight loss monitoring, weightlifting, and daily chores.
