Not perfect, but it’s great, and here’s why…

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.

FANTASTIC!! I hate wearing a chest strap (too fat and feel like one of those baked hams that has those strings cutting all into it). This (as far as I know) is pretty spot on for tracking my hr, and Im not going to forget to put it on…or dread putting it on. LOVE IT so much my wife bought one in the pink color.
Love it. Works great with Apple Watch Series 2

I was pleasantly suprised. I have the Apple Watch Series 2 and love it. I was really hoping I wouldn’t but I do. Either way…I have darker skin and have always had trouble with wrist style heart rate sensors. This watch is no exception. Will work for a little bit and then go crazy. I was going to get a bluetooth chest strap but decided to try this since it said it works with most skin types. I ordered, but had my doubts. Easily connected to my watch and then put it on. It didn’t miss a beat (no pun intended). I have now worn it 20 plus times and have never had any issues at all. I have worn my Garmin Fenix 3 on my other wrist and used a chest monitor with it. Very comparable results so I believe it is very accurate. It is also very comfortable. The design is such that you don’t need to over tighten and it won’t shift from your skin.
Light years ahead of the Polar H7

Before purchasing this item, I purchased the Polar H7. The H7 never seemed to work properly. The H7 is a chest strap and without a doubt more difficult to put on and take off. I tried the electrode gel, recommended by Amazon at the time of purchase. When using the H7, it seemed to lose contact with my body. I could wiggle it a bit and most of the time it would begin working again. Thinking it was defective, I returned it to Amazon and got a replacement. I am sorry to say the second one worked exactly the same. At this point I visited the manufacturer’s website in hopes of finding a solution. I thought that I was possible doing something wrong. Much to my surprise, the reviews on their website were below 50% favorable! I promptly returned the second H7 and purchased this Scosche RHYTHM. I could not be happier. No more electrode gel to deal with. Since it is worn on the arm, it is MUCH easier to put it on and take it off. Accuracy is inline with other monitors worn at the same time. After several months of use, I can highly recommend.
Glad I purchased…

Pretty good HRM that I don’t have to use electrode gel or water on the contacts or strap on my chest. I have several HRM from Garmin, Polar and Wahoo. The Scosche RHYTHM+ appears to monitor my heart rate just as good as the chest strap devices but with far less hassles. I’m using it mainly with the iCardio app and my Garmin Forerunner 735XT so I’m able to use the ant+ and BLE capabilities of the Scosche. I workout 3-5 days a week; jogging, elliptical and weight training and I seldom get drop outs and this is no more than I did when using any of the above mentioned chest straps.My phone is an iPhone 7 that I use iCardio on fyi.
App Endomondo saved the day

The product is very good but when you buy it you have to have one thing in mind. This product doesn’t have its own application. You have to find an application that works with it. I was about to return it when I saw a video on Youtube that shows how to connect a Rhythm + with Android phone and in this video they mention a free application that does all the sports and work outs I wanted, Treadmill running; Weight lifting; Indoors rowing; outdoors running; and much more.(Application Endomondo). Scosche mention some apps that works with this monitor but none of them has indoors sports only running outside.
Works very well, excellent product

I lost my new Wahoo HR monitor and decided to try this one. Read about it on DC Rainmaker . Com. He seemed to like it and his write up was pretty convincing. It paired seamlessly with my Garmin 610, Garmin Edge 500 as well as with my ANT+ Stick I use for TrainerRoad. I don’t have anything to compare it with, but I have seen no drop outs. Initially when I paired it with my 610, it was reading a high heart rate but it settled in and appeared pretty accurate otherwise after reviewing the data post work out. It’s comfortable and unobtrusive. I tried using it in the bicep area as DC Rainmaker had been using it, but I think my bicep gets in the way. It otherwise works great on the forearm. I’ve used it to run and cycle and it doesn’t seem to get in the way of any clothing on the run or the arm-rests on my Tri-Bike. Recharging is mindless (unless you forget, of course). It came with two straps, a short and long one. I had to use the long one on my forearm. As it stands, I’d certainly recommend this for training. Haven’t used it in a race yet but that is to come soon.
