Does the Aqua Pulse record total work out time average and peak heart rates?
When it announces your heart rate it’s simply taking the average of the last three readings. Meaning, if you had selected two-minute mode, it would simply tell you your heart rate over the last few seconds worth, rather than averaging it over the entire two minutes. It does not record data or track time.
I purchased the "original" Aqua Pulse and the bateery has expired. I asked Finis about battery replacement and they said there is none - the product is now worthless. The new model suggests a "free rechargeable Lithium battery". Does anyone know the life of the rechargeable battery? Can it be relaced in the device or it is permanently "fixed" within the device. Has anyone tested the new device? The original was fantastic while the battery lasted. Jim "O"
AQUAPULSE® HEART RATE MONITOR
Never stop to check your heart rate again. With the AquaPulse® Heart Rate Monitor your current heart rate is verbally announced while you swim.
Simply slip the AquaPulse® inside your goggle strap, attach the soft rubber clip to your earlobe, and go swim. Using an infrared sensor to monitor capillary blood flow, your heart beat is detected through your earlobe. The heart rate is then audibly communicated to you in real time, where the information is transmitted directly to your inner ear via Bone Conduction Technology. No ear buds, cumbersome chest straps, or watch devices are needed.
The heart rate announcements are made regularly in 10-second, 20-second, 30-second, 45-second, 1-minute, 2-minute or 5-minute increments. Push the “Instant Heart Rate” button to hear your last recorded reading again. Complete with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, you can use the AquaPulse® from five to eight hours depending on the interval setting. Simply plug the integrated USB directly into a USB port on your computer to recharge.
