Heart Rate Monitors, GPS Watches & Sports Watches

Heart rate monitors, GPS watches and Sports watches are arguably the granddad of fitness technology. The whole sector spun out of the original Polar offerings, and has since grown to include giants of fit-tech like Nike and new entrants like Garmin. During 2014, we can expect that these devices will continue to evolve, driven by increasing levels of competition amongst big budget manufacturers, bringing about radical new features and exciting new levels of detail and feedback. As this happens, we’ll be on hand to deliver the most comprehensive reviews from our small team of fitness technology experts. We aim to provide detailed but simple to understand heart rate monitor reviews, with the aim of providing you with the tools needed to choose the best heart rate monitor for your own unique needs. The market is full of choice, from sports specific offerings (think cycling and running) through to strapless monitors and wearable technology. Through all of this, BurnTech helps to cut through the clutter.
