LifeBEAM’s new SMART cycling helmet is integrated with a heart rate sensor, allowing real-time, accurate and hassle-free heart rate monitoring for when you’re busy concentrating on your cycling. No chest straps required with this helmet that allows you to entirely focus on your riding instead of your vitals. It is lightweight and incorporates a microprocessor integrated with LifeBEAM’s advanced algorithm, a state-of-the-art optical physiological sensor, accelerometer, and full wireless communication capabilities. The information gathered by the SMART appears in real time on your mobile phone, sport watch or cycling computer via ANT+ or Bluetooth. Suitable for high-performance athletes in any cycling environment, their sensing technology was built for intense activities in extreme environments and demonstrated highly accurate results compared to the most reliable ECG chest belts in market. The company actually integrated their sensor & algorithms that were originally developed for fighter pilots & astronauts, so it’s built to provide accurate data no matter how hard you train.
