BEETS BLU Wireless Heart Monitor

I am in no way a fitness fanatic but it seems to me that heart rate monitors have become quite the craze, with many companies developing their own innovative products and I can understand why. Being able to track your heart rate during a work out can not only make it more efficient, but it can show you whether you need to up your game or prevent you from over working. Furthermore you are able to track your calories burned, monitor your fitness over a period of time and to help keep you motivated. 

So you can understand how pleased I was when a Beets BLU representative got in contact to ask if I would be interested in reviewing their Heart Rate Monitor. I have previously worked with Beets BLU in reviewing their key finder and if this was anything to go by then I knew that the product would be good. I would be lost without my pager tag locating my keys on a regular basis, any parent with a mischievous toddler who loves keys will understand how frustrating it can be to find your keys in your shoe! 


My first impressions of the Beets BLU Heart Rate Monitor was that it looked really simple and easy to use. The instruction manual was clear and concise and in multiple languages, the instructions also had an image with numbered functions so I knew exactly what I had to do. The heart rate monitor is small and light weight device which is then attached to your chest by a soft strap, which is easily adjusted. 

To begin using the Beets BLU Heart Rate Monitor you simply attach the monitor pad to the chest strap, adjust to fit around your chest, wet both electrodes with a little water to ensure a good connection to the skin. Easy!


To sync the device to your phone you simply have to turn on your Bluetooth and open up the Beets BLU app. Then you will have to enter a few details about yourself like your age, gender, and weight then connect via the Bluetooth to the Heart Rate Monitor. I did find that the Beets BLU app was fairly basic and doesn't offer many options other than showing your current BPM and the amount of calories your are burning per minute. But this was no bother as this device can be paired with a wide range of tracking apps including RunKeeper, Endomondo, iCardio and many more. I decided to go with an app called MapMyFitness and it paired with the device immediately and worked really well. It tracked my heart activity during my work outs and allowed me to see if I was actually working out effectively and would always encourage me to push myself further during my next work out.


My only complaint about the Heart Rate Monitor would be that initially I had some trouble syncing the device to the Beets BLU app, but knowing that it could be paired with a number of apps this was a minor flaw. Overall, I was very satisfied with the Beets BLU Heart Rate Monitor. It was easy to use and does exactly what it claims to do and I believe that anyone would be able to use this product and it would be a fantastic product for fitness beginners to fitness fanatics. This Heart Rate Monitor has helped me so much with my motivation and I will always try and push myself that further to try and achieve my goals in order to loose weight and become fitter. So if you are on the look for motivation to work harder then look no further than the Beets Blu Heart Rate Monitor!
