Apple Approves First Heart Rate Monitor App for Bluetooth 4.0

body-proUsing the latest in dongle-free technologies, CardioMapper by Ottawa’s Body-Pro has become the first iOS App approved by Apple for the two newest wireless technologies. CardioMapper is capable of connecting and reading data from both Bluetooth 4.0 (also called Bluetooth Smart) and the SmartHRM WiFi.
Contrary to popular belief you burn more calories running than walking an equal distance. Now you can use the iPhone GPS to easily determine intensity based calories burned doing distance exercises like biking, running, ice skating, inline skating, walking and cross country skiing. Best of all a single tap opens your data in body-PRO so you can compare your cardio against your goals.
To help you time High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), CardioMapper also includes an interval coach that can tell you when to increase or decrease your intensity. Time based custom messages allow you to enjoy your favorite iPod music playlists while the interval coach tells you messages at preset times. Perfect for BFL, HIIT and other common intensity based training, it comes with a dozen virtual coach routines but additional routines can be easily added.

Full real time and post exercise analysis including: calories, duration, pace, speed, and of course distance. Full graphing of speed, pace and heart rate so you can review HIIT or other intensity systems. Live GPS accuracy lets you know how accurate the GPS signal is.

Integrated Heart Rate Monitor lets you connect with the newest dongle-free heart rate monitors such as the SmartHRM and Bluetooth Smart 4.0 (BLE). CardioMapper is the first iOS App approved by Apple that supports BLE Heart Rate Monitors. Live pulse data will graph heart beat rhythm to match your heart. You can check out these new Heart Rate Monitors at CES 2012.

CardioMapper is available for $1.99 USD in the Health and Fitness section of the iTunes App Store, and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices running iOS 4.2 or later.
