Abstract: In endurance sports training, heart rate represents a useful proportional measure for the current physical effort in a workout. Accordingly, during such exercises, it is advantageous to get monitoring information about the actual heart frequency for having an instrument of controlling the demand level of an activity. Today, the market offers a broad variety of sports computers, which allow a tracking and display of heart rate, but their convenience and appropriateness appear rather limited in terms of an efficient use in daily training. In particular, major restrictions are numerical displays of the in-time measures with tiny letters or an unfiltered print-out of spurious values, since the recording is not always precise, but sometimes disturbed from various reasons. Fortunately, upcoming new technologies like programmable smartphone devices and ANT+ communication standard for sports sensors allow developing new and optimized applications and systems also for sports purposes. In the w ork here, a convenient heart rate monitor was developed that aims at high user-friendliness in combination with elaborated signal-conditioning for preventing any spurious and misguiding displays. Few simple button presses put the sportsman into the position of performing efficient activities within the desired endurance training range. As result, a system is described that is feasible for easy-to-use and efficient sports monitoring, especially during daily workouts. (More)
