The Gaiam Fitness Trainer 2.0 is a $100 wrist watch that reads your heart rate without a chest strap. It also displays the time, calendar and includes a “tap on lens” that toggles through each mode.
For an additional $10 you can pick up the Gaiam Zone Trainer 3.0, which is essentially the same as the aforementioned device, but includes a chest strap with wireless heart rate monitor for more accurate heart rate readings.
Last but not least is the Gaiam Calorie Coach G1, a fancy smancy pedometer for just $40. In addition to a digital read out, it measures you calories burned, steps taken and can store up to 7 days of walking data.
