iTMP demos new iPhone fitness accessory

updated 10:10 am EST, Wed January 7, 2009


iTMP Technology has introduced SMHEART LINK, a new technology that is aimed at bringing new health and fitness capabilities to iPhone and iPod touch users. SMHEART LINK is described as a wireless bridge that enables an iPhone or iPod touch to double as a heart monitor and cycling computer. It can collect data generated by fitness sensors such as heart rate chest straps and cycling sensors on bikes and then send it to an iPhone for display and tracking.

Over the last two months iTMP has released three different demo iPhone fitness applications that currently only run as simulations. The pending updates, which are being demonstrated live at the Expo will be the first iPhone apps that can actually listen to a person's heart to track and display their unique vital fitness metrics.

iSPINNING is a cardio fitness system and cycling computer that enables cyclists to track and record their cardio exercise anywhere. iNewLeaf allows users to incorporate unique metabolic profile data from New Leaf to more precisely track and monitor the right intensity for better results. With iRPM users can upload completed workouts to eNewLeaf or MapMyFitness and then add cardio training and cycling metrics to your online fitness diary.

SMHEART LINK will be available for purchase soon but until an exact release date is announced those interested can register to receive an alert when the product is ready to ship. SMHEART LINK will initially be bundled with SMHEART Sleeve, a flexible, lightweight case that integrates with the heart monitor chest strap, and will be included for an introductory period at 50 percent off.
