I had to debate between 4 and 5 stars. I would give this 4-1/2 if I could.

Medically accurate, the best heart rate monitor

This device is much more accurate than any other heart rate monitor on the market, to even include blood pressure cuffs and pulse ox monitors at the hospital.

Good monitor for treadmill

I use the treadmill (fast walking) several times a week and this is perfect for tracking my heart rate. I paired it with the Polar Beat app, which provides a basic time graph of your heart rate by zone. The band is wide and flexible and sits comfortably on my forearm without slipping while I exercise. As far as I can tell it is reasonably accurate. I docked it a star because it does not come with a default app. I get that they are a hardware company and not a software company but downloading and testing multiple apps became tedious.

Excellent buy

I hate chest strap HR monitors, so I decided to buy this one. I mostly run and I use the endomondo app on iphone. It has a very simple charger and I love the single on/off button. It was incredibly simple in the settings of endomondo to “look” for a HR monitor. I turned the device on and it near instantly starts reading on my app. From the time I hit the power on button to the time my app picks it up is maybe 2 or 3 seconds. I brought it to my medical office and compared it with the HR readings using some of our equipment, and it was exactly the same. The only time I notice a lower reading is when I am doing pullups, which makes sense. I’ve already had 2 coworkers purchase this because I brought it in and showed it to them.

Good product that works well

Generally does a great job and is very impressive for the price. Can be a bit weak maintaining signal at high heart rates when doing rigorous arm movements, such as high impact cardio.

Solid data; excellent battery life; extremely comfortable

So far so good. I ran a Half Marathon with it and it was solid the entire time. Meanwhile, I had a Garmin 920XT watch with a chest strap and, as usual, that Garmin strap cut out for 20 mins during the race when it got too sweaty. The Rythm+, however, was a solid performer. I wear it just above the elbow and find it remarkably comfortable to the point I almost forget I have it on. For the parts where both devices were reporting, the results were nearly identical. [I’ve also compared it to my Apple Watch on spot tests and they are nearly the same there as well after the watch settles down.]

Map My Ride compatible.

I bought this specifically to wear while road cycling using map my ride. If you are going to use map my ride then you have to pay for that service. I don’t know how it works with other apps. As far as how it works with Map my Ride, it works great. I am running an android phone and it found my Scosche RHYRHM instantly. It always pairs up within seconds of turning it on and starting the app with no extra steps. I was a little apprehensive at first because I though for sure it would slide down my forearm. But so far it has never slid down even a little bit. After wearing it for a few minutes I forget I have it on and sometimes forget to take it off and shut it down. It really is that unobtrusive to your routine. I have worn it in the gym while weight lifting as well and again no issues. I have been wearing it a lot under long sleeve jerseys as the spring here is rather cool and have had no issues with it causing any kind of bunching or snagging. In all I would say it does exactly as advertised. I bought this to tied me over till the new UP3 comes out but I am probably just going to keep using this it works that well.

Highly recommended

I was on the fence with getting a new HR product – I really wanted a dual ANT+/BT sensor that would work with both Zwift (PC) and my iPhone in any situation – even in the future if I get a Garmin Edge. This one does that and it is also very comfortable, easy to reach/check/adjust if necessary and is otherwise pretty unobtrusive. It goes on the upper forearm, just below the elbow is best, and should be pretty tight. It’s best if the sensor part is point away from the body as it seems to get the best readings for me from that position. It uses a light bounced against your skin to check your heart rate but it doesn’t use EKG – I have a lot of body hair and it seems to work great when some other products have struggled. I continually broadcasts in both ANT+ and BlueTooth so any device can be trained to pick it up, I run Cyclemeter on my iPhone and Zwift on my PC at the same time, works like a charm. And no more struggling with chest straps, how many times did I forget to put those on before I got dressed? Glad dcrainmaker recommended it, I will to.

Just Buy It!

I’ve always hated chest strap HRMs, so I’ve been looking for something I can wear on my wrist or arm. I’ve been a Fitbit fan since its first days, so I thought I’d pick up a Charge HR in addition to the Charge I already wear daily. Unfortunately no matter how I adjusted it, I couldn’t get a reliable HR signal. I’d bought the small (fits my wrist just fine), but doesn’t have enough length for me to wear it much higher on my arm. I also discovered it doesn’t work all that well with my Samsung Galaxy S5. So I returned the Charge HR, continued my research and happened upon the Scosche Rhythm Plus. This thing is fantastic! It works great with Sports Tracker Pro (my fitness app of choice) through Bluetooth. The app (and my phone) have Ant+ too, but I haven’t been able to get the Scosche to keep a connection after I leave the settings page on the STP app. It’s either user error or something with the app, I’m sure, so I’ll figure it out eventually. In the meantime, it maintains a solid connection with Bluetooth and seems very accurate. I can still use my bluetooth headset as long as I connect it prior to launching STP and connecting the Rhythm Plus. I’ve been using it for good form fast walking but intend to use it while biking and working out on the Total Gym too. It’s important for me to wear a HRM not only for motivation, but to keep me from overdoing and injuring myself, as I have lung disease. This is a GREAT, comfortable HR monitor!
