The high demand for smartwatches and fitness bracelets speaks of the willingness of society to take care of their health and fitness. It seems that today no one goes outside without some kind of device that tracks daily steps, track sleep, and check the heart rate at rest. However, experts believe that fitness bracelets will soon replace heart rate monitors.
Most heart rate monitors perform better than any smartwatch. The purpose of the device is to help the user manage the workout and perform the exercises more efficiently. The special advantage of heart rate monitors is the compatibility of the gadget with a large number of types of sports equipment. They can be noticed by users of treadmills or elliptical trainers. Moreover, the device shows more accurate data than, for example, Apple Watch will show.
The vast majority of monitors are mounted on the chest, but there are also devices that athletes wear on the forearm. Experts note that it is possible to measure the heart rate even if it is headphones: the corresponding gadgets are already in use.
Esports industry and heart rate monitors
The representatives of the esports sphere also drew attention to the heart rate monitors. So, on October 22, 2021, heart rate monitors were introduced at the WePlay Esports tournament to check the level of stress players experience during the competition.
However, they were outstripped by the Ukrainian esports platform — ESportsBattle. Now, efootball matches are also broadcast using heart rate monitors. This feature provides further attention to the platform’s activity.
In most cases, the use of such technological innovations in the esports industry raises interest from representatives of various audiences. Therefore, the company has new potential for development at each level.
ESportsBattle — there are esports tournaments with high-quality, engaging, and fast content 24/7. The platform includes efootball, ebasketball, eice hockey, CS:GO.
