Scosche has announced the availability of Rhythm+, an armband heart monitor that optically measures blood flow and movement to monitor heart rate and track calories burned more accurately than a conventional chest strap. The dual-mode wireless configuration includes both Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ capabilities, allowing Rhythm+ to pair with smartphones, sport watches and exercise equipment.

The low-profile monitor is made from a silicone and polycarbonate hybrid, and is fastened to the forearm just below the elbow with a breathable neoprene arm-strap. IP67 waterproof construction protects Rhythm+ from sweat or rain, and allows the monitor to be submerged in liquid up to one meter (3.3 feet) deep. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to eight hours of workout time.

Rhythm+ integrates with virtually any app that supports Bluetooth Smart heart rate data, including Map My Fitness, Runkeeper and Strava. This allows users to add heart rate monitoring to their existing health and fitness tracking plans. Rhythm+ is available now for $80.
