Though fitness wearables may feel like they're a dime a dozen at this point, the new Moov HR is a unique device that is simply more effective and accurate than the majority of devices on the market. The Moov HR is a headband that tracks heart rates with incredible precision, especially when compared to fitness wristbands.
The key to the improvement in the Moov HR versus normal bands is placement. While the wrist is a good place for measuring heart rate by feel, it is far worse for the light-based technological sensors used in most wearables. The forehead, however, has much thinner skin that allows for better penetration by light sensors.
With the data it receives, the Moov HR can communicate with Moov's app to give users accurate information about their workouts.
