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.
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.
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.
Accurate, comfortable, and worthwhile for HIIT training
10 people found this helpful.
I’d been using wrist-based HRMs for about a year, and after talking with a run coach and another fitness trainer, both recommended this for accuracy and comfort. So far, I’d say the recommendations were spot on. The wrist-based HRMs aren’t bad for light aerobic or resting heart rate, but vigorous and variable activity like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) requires something with a bit more accuracy to track changes (especially increases).
Comfortable and accurate

Pros: Accurate and easy to wear. I’ve found it great for balancing my effort in the gym. Easy to sync to my phone and exercise apps.
Better than a chest strap, but not perfect.

On the positive side, I find the Scosche Rhythm+ to be much more comfortable, especially over long activities or exercise sessions such as century bike rides, than a chest strap. I generally wear mine on the inside of my upper arm, and forget completely that it is there within minutes of putting it on. In contrast, I feel I am always fiddling with and very aware of HR chest straps. The Scosche is also easier to manage because it is small and packable and easy to put on and take off. I was a bit worried that recharging it would be a pain in comparison to coin-battery operated straps, but it hasn’t turned out to be a problem. Battery life is reasonable (Scosche’s claim of 8 hours of workout time seems about right), and I simply recharge it along with my other devices when finished with a workout. Battery life might be a problem for an ultra runner, but the things are so small and light, one could easily just bring a back-up. Another positive is that the Scosche, like an increasing number of sensors these days, can broadcast in both bluetooth and ANT+, meaning that it is usable with my Garmins, my iPhone workout apps, and my wife’s new-ish Polar bike computer. It will not, however, connect with older non-Bluetooth Polar devices or even the brand-new treadmills at the gym, which seem to read only the older Polar-style HRMs.
paired this with my apple watch for much better heart rate tracking ***update with more thoughts after prolonged usage***

im using this item paired to my apple watch. the apple watch, for the price, has a pathetic heart rate monitoring while exercising. it takes spot samples. for day to day use this is ok with me, but during an exercise activity i want it as accurate as possible.
Lose the annoying and disgustingly sweaty chest strap heart rate monitor and go lean

I purchased this item a few weeks ago and wanted to get a few uses under my belt before writing a review. So far I really don’t have anything bad to say about it. I have several of the heart rate monitors you wear around you chest, which I am sure if you have used them, you know how annoying and uncomfortable they can be, which is why I decided to go with the Scosche Rhythm instead.
