    Versitile HR Monitor/GPS for Android Users?

    Hi,

    I need help being pointed in the right direction. I'm looking to purchase a Heart Rate monitor for someone with a Samsung Galaxy phone. I'm looking for something that will be able match up to some sort of fitness app to track HR, distance etc. The person I'm getting it for does a combination of road, mountain and stationary biking so I'm looking for something that would work for all 3. Cadence and stuff would be cool but not vital.

    Any suggestions on brands out there? I keep finding products that are for Iphones only.

    Thanks in advance!

    Try ipbike especially if your phone has ant+ built in. If you don't have ant+ built in you can get Bluetooth sensors instead of the ant ones

    You need to know specifically which phone. "Galaxy" isn't enough. Which model? What wireless protocols does it have? It also helps to decide on an app first then choose the hrm that particular app supports.

    You might also want to check out Adidas' HRM and app called miCoach: http://shop.numetrex.com/product/adi...textile-strap/

    It apparently works with Android 4.3 now. It's more of a training/coaching app that guides you through workouts/runs/cycling/etc. I've been using it this winter on the treadmill and bike trainer (I use the iphone version). My only beef so far is that the UI isn't as clean as Strava and some of the other apps...at least IMO.
