Heart rate monitor

A pulse monitor is a device used to measure a person's pulse or heart rate.

Finger pulse oximeter: These portable devices are placed over the finger and measure the pulse and oxygen levels in the blood. They use infrared light and photodetectors to detect blood flow and oxygen saturation.

Chest strap heart rate monitor: this type of heart rate monitor consists of an elastic strap worn around the chest and a transmitter connected to the strap. The transmitter captures heart rate and sends it wirelessly to a receiving device such as a sports watch or smartphone.

Wrist heart rate monitors: these devices are worn on the wrist and use optical sensors to measure the pulse. They are integrated into fitness wristbands, smartwatches or dedicated heart rate monitors.

Heart rate monitors on the ear: some heart rate monitors are worn on the ear and use optical sensors to detect the pulse. They are often integrated into headphones or earbuds.

Heart rate monitors are useful tools for monitoring heart rate during exercise or everyday life. They allow users to monitor their exercise intensity and ensure they are exercising in their desired heart rate zone. This can help optimize the effectiveness of workouts and avoid overexertion or insufficient exertion. Heart rate monitors are also used by individuals with certain medical conditions to monitor their heart rate and detect any deviations.
