Run­ning with a smart­phone at­tached is not al­ways ideal, par­tic­u­larly if you use a large phone. The Wa­hoo TICKR X chest strap solves the prob­lem by work­ing as a stand-alone de­vice that can not only track your pulse but your ca­dence, ex­er­cise du­ra­tion, and calo­rie burn in its mem­ory. If you do ex­er­cise with a phone, it can use its GPS to dis­play your route on its app. The TICKR X can track jog­ging out­side or on a tread­mill, cy­cling out­side, on a sta­tion­ary bike or in a spin class, and Blue­tooth and ANT+ con­nec­tions mean it can con­nect to phones and run­ning watches, or even an Ap­ple Watch.
