Short answer is: YES, you can see active HR in the Biostrap app with an external heart rate monitor!

With the wristband device by itself, it’s important to note that we don’t currently take continuous or real-time measurements - including measuring active heart rate during exercise.

We also don't currently measure Blood Oxygen Saturation, HRV or Respiratory Rate during a workout as those metrics are difficult to obtain when there is movement.

We are excited to let you know that we sell Biostrap Heart Rate Monitors so you can see active heart rate in the Biostrap app during a workout session.

Outside of our own HRM devices, we have successfully tested with the following devices:

  • Polar H7
  • Polar H10
  • Polar OH1
  • Rhythm+
  • Wahoo Tickr
  • Adidas X_Cell
