Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Does LED style HR pulse monitoring work using SHIFT?2018-07-31T02:33:59-07:00

You can use SHIFT with LED style heart rate monitors. This includes the Apple Watch and Garmin watches that use LED HR monitoring. We have tested the HR functionality thoroughly.  A local shop has told us that they think SHIFT improves the reliability of LED HR monitoring because they notice that with SHIFT there is less pooling of sweat under the watch.

Below is an image from a customer who also had a question about the HR measurement.
