    Humon Hex

    Has anyone been using this device for mountain biking?

    Apparently you can read it from a Garmin watch or an iPhone mounted on your bike. It monitors the amount of oxygen that is reaching your muscles so you have a visual aid with a bar that changes colors depending on the intensity of your exertion level. Based on the color, it indicates if you need to back off, red color ( depleting oxygen) then turns blue then back in the green which is the normal range.

    Think itís new technology so Iím not sure if itís really beneficial, however many professionals are saying itís much better than monitoring your heat rate since you have a better gauge as to if you are overtraining and stressing your body.

    It seems like a cool product, I think it would be great for runners, etc. but for a bike a power meter seems even better, to me anyway.

    Power meter? This sensor just helps by indicating all of the time you spend in the Red which is deprived oxygen, aka over training.

    A power meter basically does the same thing but in more accurate increments than green, yellow or red, and also tracks progression.

    Did the link say what the price was?

    Over training and anaerobic exercise are not the same thing, and not necessarily linked.

    There are addition colors that indicate if you are headed above or below the main colors and I believe the cost is about $295.
