FIT­BIT

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS - TRACKS STEPS, IN­CLINE, CALO­RIE BURN

This is the first Fit­bit gad­get that takes “rest­ing heart rate” lit­er­ally. The Charge HR adds a con­tin­u­ous pulse mon­i­tor to the back of this fit­ness tracker, with two green lights mea­sur­ing your heart around the clock. The re­sults are fas­ci­nat­ing, cat­e­goris­ing work­outs into fat-burning, car­dio, or peak zones, and show­ing your heart rate dur­ing your sleep. Nat­u­rally, it also tracks steps, in­cline, calo­rie burn, and records sleep au­to­mat­i­cally, plus it de­liv­ers phone call alerts via Blue­tooth and si­lent, vibrating alarms. Sadly, it is only wa­ter re­sis­tant to splashes and won’t sur­vive a shower, but its sub­tle, well-built form and pulse tech­nol­ogy is se­ri­ously im­pres­sive.
