0308_NP9_1Textronics Inc., manufacturer of the NuMetrex brand of sports and fitness apparel, has designed a new transmitter that improves accuracy and applicability of the heart-rate monitoring system. The transmitter snaps into a tiny pocket in the NuMetrex sports bras and shirts, where it receives the heart rate signal from textile sensors located across the chest band area. The data is then transmitted to a watch or exercise machine which displays a read-out; the system is now compatible with most analog heart-rate monitor watches as well as gym-quality treadmills and elliptical machines. Ergonomically designed to fit comfortably against the sternum without rubbing, the NuMetrex transmitter’s improved technology sorts through the feedback to provide more accurate data to the wearer.
