The Blaze is a fully featured activity tracker with the accuracy of a dedicated HRM. It counts steps, stairs climbed, calories burned, active time, resting heart rate, sleep stages and quality of sleep, and comes with a number of sports modes that will track particular exercises using its HRM. On top of that, it'll also show you upcoming calendar alerts, texts, and calls. See More
While the Blaze isn't strictly a heart rate monitor, it is surprisingly accurate in that regard. Since it's closer to a fitness tracker + smartwatch combo than a dedicated HRM, you'll be getting a lot more data and usage out of this than you might think. It'll do everything you could want a HRM to do, and so much more. See More
The H7 can connect via Bluetooth Smart or GymLink. It can connect to a wide range of apps (like Runkeeper, Runtastic, or Strava) and works with Bluetooth sports watches as well. The GymLink connection means it'll work with Polar's other sport watches or activity trackers. See More
The Link comes with an LED that gives you a different color depending on where your heart rate is at. This makes checking your heart rate a lot easier as you don't have to stop and pull your phone out, or risk dropping it while you're running. See More
The Link can be paired with any app that supports a heart rate monitor and does so via either Bluetooth 4.0 or ANT+, whichever you prefer. It can feed information to either your phone, a GPS watch, or even your bike computer. See More
The Vivosmart has a 1"x.42" backlit LCD display that displays everything from the time, steps, heart rate, weather, distance traveled, calories burned, stairs climbed, steps taken, and time moving. The screen is touchscreen and surprisingly responsive, allowing you to swipe between data displays. See More
