Schosche Rhythm Monitor, Workout Tool Made Specifically for Your Android Device

If you’re looking for a good workout partner, then you may want to check out Scosche’s RHYTHM monitor. Usually, we wouldn’t pay too much attention to a fitness tool, but much like Motorola’s ACTV line, this monitor is made specifically for Android phones and tablets, as well as iOS devices. The monitor connects wirelessly to your phone via Bluetooth and relays real-time data such as heart rate, calories burned, distance traveled and a whole lot more through a tailored Android app. 

Along with giving you data from your workouts, it can also control your device’s music player and help you find just the right track to get you pumped up. The monitor runs $99, which when compared to Nike’s FuelBand or the MOTOACTV, isn’t terrible since Scosche also provides a web-based interface much like their competitors. Down below we’ve linked to their site if you want to learn more. Happy workouts!

    • TheCheapGamer

    Hey lady, nice… iPad.

    It’s not really comparable to the MotoActv. The Actv is a completely separate device, no need to connect it to your phone to workout.

      If the Activ would come down in price I think it could easily beat this device. The Activ at least lets you connect and get notifications and the MotoActiv app looks a lot cleaner and polished!

      • Tommy Thompson

        It already came down in price…

        • LeDerp

          I already came

          Its still over a $150 even used on ebay. Thats far out compared to something like Nike+ sensors which only cost $20 or so at just about any sporting goods store.

          • Tommy Thompson

            The Nike + is just a sensor…you still have to have a phone/iPod to use with it which also costs money. Nike+ also only goes by your motion which isn’t all that accurate…

          • https://www.facebook.com/aaron.williams.125 Champion1229

            Well technically the Motoactv requires a phone / android device to work for the advanced features such as notification, streaming music, etc. Also the new Nike + uses both the sensor and the App to get more precision and accuracy. But still, I’m not 100% sure the sensor can be used on Android, the app listing doesn’t even say the words Nike + sensor together once.

          • Tommy Thompson

            You can you use the motoactv without a device. It has 16GB of storage for music. Why would need to stream? And do you really need to worry about that incoming text while out running???

          • https://www.facebook.com/aaron.williams.125 Champion1229

            I’m not saying you HAVE to have it but in order to get all the features Motorola advertises you would have to have a device.

            It would actually be helpful to know who that text was from and maybe maybe to even glance over it to make sure it wasn’t from someone important.

          • Tommy Thompson

            And without a device, the Nike+ dongle is completely useless….

  • CopierITGuy

    This looks pretty cool. Too bad I’m too freakin’ fat and lazy to give it a try!

    If their goal was to get me to remember their name because I had to stare at it for like 30 seconds while trying to pronounce it, well…it worked.

    Just don’t ask me to spell it again…yikes!

  • RedPandaAlex

    Looks cool, but their app is fugly

  • KleenDroid

    Amazing… This actually seems like a good idea.
