Aim / pulse monitor, mp3-player


A pulse monitor gauges the heart rate of an athlete using a sensor. With this, it is possible to train at one's optimal heart rate. The best way to gauge the heart rate is using sensor placed on the solar plexus.
Aim can be easily applied to clothing. It is a pulse monitor, watch and MP3-Player in one. There is no tangle of cables anymore. The watch is replaced by a wristlet with a shiny display under the fabric. The music data sets are in the sensor and can be operated on the wristlet.
The OLED Display can be removed to wash the wristlet.
Because of its shape and color, Aim is very sporty, handy and easy to operate.
