From Medical Frames to Twitter Heart Monitors

 - Jul 2, 2013
Checking in on the state of your cardiovascular system is becoming increasingly easier thanks to all of these future-forward heart monitors. Nowadays, people are interested in taking their health into their own hands. Specifically, people want to know more about their bodies, as opposed to having to run to the doctor to find things out.

Many fitness devices already sport built-in heart-rate monitors to help athletes train better. These future-forward heart monitors run the gamut from silly devices (the heart-rate monitoring fox tail) to fashion that can inform you on the current state of your heart. As technology improves, look for more and more devices and even articles of clothing to feature integrated heart-rate monitors.
