FT4 Heart Rate Monitor Designed for Fitness & Cross Training For those who want basic heart rate-based features to keep their fitness training simple.
– Shows when you’re improving fitness based on your heart rate
– Displays calories burned
– Comes with comfortable textile transmitter and coded heart rate transmission to avoid cross-talk
– Suitable for swimming
Manual target zone – bpm / %
This feature enables you to define the target zone as you want and is suitable for your training. You can set the target zone for your training as beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage of your maximum heart rate, or as a percentage of your heart rate reserve (HRR%).
Polar OwnCode® (5kHz) – coded transmission
Coded heart rate transmission automatically locks in a code to transmit your heart rate to the training computer. The training computer picks up your heart rate from your transmitter only. Coding prevents interference from other training computers.
HR-based target zones with visual and audible alarmYou can define your target zones for a training session based on heart rate to help define the right intensity. When you are out of the preset zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm.Automatic age-based target zone – bpm / %To help you train safely and effectively, the training computer determines your heart rate target zone limits automatically according to your age-based maximum heart rate (220 minus age). The limits are determined either in beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate, or as a heart rate reserve (% HRR). See also Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and Manual target zone. Heart rate – bpm / %Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. Heart rate can be expressed as the number of beats per minute or as percentage of your maximum heart rate. Heart rate can also be expressed as a percentage of your heart rate reserve, meaning the difference between your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate (HRR = HRmax – HRrest). In Polar software or during strength training, heart rate can be displayed as a graphical trend.
Your Smartphone can now be your workout buddy! Simply strap the heart monitor to your chest download the app and record your heart rate when you’re keeping fit.
To get instant access to professional fitness extras such as heart rate zones, time and calorie goals, pedometer, audio coach, distance travelled, – or even graphs and weather information – just pair the heart monitor to a fitness app. ECG data wirelessly transmits to your phone via the monitor’s sensor pads where it is saved and compiled within your app.

FUNCTIONAL AND FORWARD: SKULLCANDY WOMEN’S ADVANCED FASHION-FORWARD LINE DESIGNED WITH WOMEN’S SPECIFIC ACOUSTICS AND FIT IN MIND
Today, Skullcandy, the original performance lifestyle audio brand, launches its collection of Women’s headphones and earbuds. In a space that has been largely comprised of unisex fit, acoustics and design, Skullcandy introduces a collection of products with reimagined acoustics, engineering, and industrial design.
Skullcandy Women’s line is comprised of a collection developed through careful thought and extensive research, drawing inspiration from withinSkullcandy’s own team of Olympic and Athlete Ambassadors, including talented pro-snowboarder Kimmy Fasani and pro-surfer Leila Hurst. The collection is a representation of the youth, passion, strength, and singularity of our female consumer.
“The truth is there are real anatomical, acoustical, and behavioral differences in how male and female consumers experience our product,” said Michelle Whitehead, Skullcandy’s Director of Brand and Sports Marketing. “Our goal was to understand these differences well enough to design products, from the ground up, that would legitimately improve the audio experience for our female consumer. We are extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished.”
Considerations for all three products (Knockout, Bombshell, and Dime) in the development process included acoustics, comfort, materialization, fit, and even hygiene. The collection’s audio drivers are custom-tuned to reflect field research that supports the fact that women and men hear differently, and Skullcandy engineers worked tirelessly to perfect headband fit as well as earbud size and shape.
Fine tuned, and engineered for Women, the line is complimented by premium fabrics and materialization. Floral prints, rose gold finishes, and subtle stud embellishments are bold fashion-forward aesthetics that add a feminine edge to the predominantly unisex category, and are a reflection of our female consumer and her unique style and perspective.
Skullcandy Women’s Range launched in the U.K. on June 1st, 2014 and is available in select retailers and on Skullcandy.com where the line will retail for between £29.99 – £79.99.

A bracelet with benefits Garmin’s vivofit – A Perfect Pressie for Her

With the touch of a button, you can wirelessly sync vívofit with Garmin Connect – Garmin’s online community – to see a complete picture of your progress, including weight loss, which you can either keep private or share with others. Vívofit can also be used with a heart monitor, providing invaluable information whether you are a serious athlete or concerned about your overall level of fitness.

A FITTING GIFT FOR TIME-SHORT FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Every year ‘Get Fit’ tops the list of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions, with Brits shelling out £38 million on gym memberships, exercise classes and slimming groups.
All too quickly though, motivation wanes as life, work and family commitments make it almost impossible to find time to go to the gym.
This Christmas, give friends and family committed to get fit in 2015 the best start possible with gift vouchers for ‘Workout In: Interactive’, a new online fitness website that allows you to connect live to an expert fitness trainer by webcam and workout together whenever and wherever you choose.
www.workoutin.com offers a range of cardio, toning and holistic classes taken in small groups of five, as well as one-to-one personal training sessions. Results are based on proper technique rather than duration so each session lasts 25 minutes, making it easy to fit into a busy day.
There are no membership fees, no contracts and registration is free, with one free session gifted on joining. You can then purchase tokens to participate in classes and 1-2-1 sessions and use them as and when you choose.
Gift vouchers are available for each of the token values: three sessions for £24 (£8 per class), six sessions for £45 (£7.50 per class) and 15 sessions for £90 (£6 per class).

The Polar M400 is a great training accessory that is a fitness tracker and running watch. It tracks everything you need from distance, altitude, pacing and calories burnt and features GPS tracking and the ability to show data when you’re not running (it will also let you know if you’ve been stationery for too long, so there are no excuses for not training hard). It also tracks activity, sleep and steps and has a range of coaching features.
