I have been seeking for a wearable device or some equipment that can measure heart rate, few gadgets comes in mind such as: a) Suunto watches that display accurate reading but will need to wear a heart rate belt that might cause inconvenient for daily use. b) Mio Alpha watches that is just too big for small wrist. c) Samsung Galaxy S5 that is way above my budget.
Then i read about a product name Wello by Azoi Inc., a health monitoring device that embedded within a iPhone polycarbonate case (for iPhone 4S, 5 and 5s models). There are few sensors inside the case where it can measure a number of key vitals includes: heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen, temperature and lung function (with add on device “lung-tester”).
To use it, switch on Wello (the device will draws power from it own’s internal rechargeable battery), hold on the 4 spots (as those highlights on image above) on the case for a few seconds while sensors take measurements, then it will quickly pass on gathered information to the installed Wello app through Bluetooth LE and readings will appear on your phone to see or share.
Pre-order for Wello is available now, for limited time they are offering special price USD 199 together with lung-tester attachment for free. For Malaysian, that is RM 693.32 (current currency exchange) by paying with credit card (07 March 2014), shipment will be on around summer and fall of 2014. Unfortunately, it will not be ship to Malaysia (only includes Canada, China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and across the European Union), nearest to get is to ship it over our neighbour country at south, Singapore.
Broke my Suunto Ambit strap rubber on a running session after using it for more than a year. The rubber just fall off while running without me noticing it, and i have not putting any force by accidentally hook on tree branch or anything else.
Couldn’t find genuine replacement for it except for buying a whole replacement strap set that will cost near to RM 200. Doesn’t want to spend too much on it, so i asked for suggestion and advise from Malaysia Suunto Team (Movescount) group. Surprised me that there are 3 more members facing the same issue, perhaps Suunto need to into their durability of their product as this is the second issue, refer the first one Suunto Ambit Strap Screw fall off.
With the active response by many group members, few options provided:
So, rubber band it is as image below, take it off from my camera product that initially use for tie up cables. It last for short running, 2 hours trekking and seems still able to lasts for few more activities before it broke off.
