ithlete HRM 1.2
the author of this app says:
ithlete HRM is a precision heart rate monitor app for iPhone and iPod touch that works with analog HRM chest straps AND allows you to use GPS run & cycle tracking apps & listen to iPod music all at the same time !
ECG accurate heart rate, average & maximum heart rates, personal HR zones, workout and lap times are all supported, together with sophisticated training load (TRIMP) and Calorie calculations.
ithlete HRM is designed to be an accurate, easy to use training companion that provides visual and sound feedback of all essential heart rate functions.
Unlike other iPhone heart monitor apps, ithlete HRM uses a small receiver dongle to pick up the signal from analog (5.4kHz) chest straps. The receiver has a headphone socket so you can listen to music at the same time as getting sound feedback from the app when you are below or above your chosen heart-rate zone.
ithlete HRM is also the first heart rate monitor app for the iPhone and iPod touch that incorporates Dr Phil Maffetone's 180 formula designed to maximise development of your aerobic fitness and ability to use fat efficiently as a fuel during exercise.
ithlete HRM features and benefits:
Individualised aerobic and anaerobic training zones suitable for workouts focusing on both endurance base building and intensity or intervals
Sound alerts when out of zone mixed with your music through headphones
Sophisticated heart-rate Calorie calculation uses age, weight, gender and fitness level (VO2 max)
Training load (TRIMP) calculation continuously rates the impact of each workout on your body
Stopwatch & lap timer functions
Detailed chart showing heart rate & training load profile of current and stored workouts
Training log with date, total & lap times, Calories, TRIMP, max and average heart rates

Requires ithlete receiver dongle that plugs into headset jack
iOS 4 multitasking compatible, can run simultaneously with GPS run & cycle tracking apps on iPhone 4 & 3GS
