WalkJogRun app update: bluetooth heart rate monitor integration

walkjogrun-app-updateWe’re excited to announce the WalkJogRun app is now compatible with Bluetooth heart rate monitors.

What this means: You can track your heart rate through our app. In addition to pace and distance, every lap announcement also includes a heart rate average, letting you know if you’re training too hard or too easy.

How it works: Once you’re wearing a heart rate strap, simply launch the GPS and tap the connect button to pair the strap with the device.

Compatible products: All ANT+ devices connected through the Wahoo Key are supported, but we recommend the new Bluetooth low-energy devices for anyone with an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5. Read the full press release for more details about compatible products.

Training by heart rate: Here are some ways the update can help you train better.
