Turn your cardio workouts into a fun, social and competitive experience!
Race by Hearts motivates you to a more effective workout and together with your training buddies you'll get even more out of your training.
► Use your team to drive you forward.
Race by hearts is all out being social. Not with the purpose of telling everyone how cool you are (because you are!), but instead use the real time heart rate data within your team to motivate you to train even harder. You gain a better, more efficient workout. Your teammates do the same. Everybody shares, everybody gains.
► It's a competition, if you want it to be.
One of the best motivators is to do great, preferably even greater than someone else. That's why training alongside your friends, keeping track of each other is a perfect way to motivate yourself to perform just that little bit better.
However if your are not in a competitive mood, Race by Hearts works just as well as a general heart rate monitor. It shows your heart rate in real time, stores your data and gives you a nice overview after your workout.
► Powered by your heart.
Your heart rate says a lot of things about you. How fit you are, whether you are stressed or relaxed. And with Race by Hearts it also tells you how hard you are working out, if your are putting in more effort that your training buddies, and which one of your teammates is currently in the lead. It all depends on your individual heart rates.
► Heart rates are relative.
We all have hearts, yet we are all different. This is the reason that while your heart rate tells a lot about you, it does only say something about you. What is a high heart rate for you might not be for someone else. Heart rates are as individual as favorite colors. Therefore RBH calculates a normalized reference for every team member, making it possible to do a true comparison between individuals.
