HEART RATE MONITOR / EYEWEAR in 1

The Story

THE STORY

The idea behind the Pulzit glasses came to me one night when I was out country skiing. I always try to keep an eye on my heart rate during my exercises and to do so I usually wear a watch with a built in heart rate monitor. A watch can be useful in sports where you have at least one arm free to check your heart rate. The problem appears when you are practicing a sport using both arms throughout the exercise, for example country skiing, and therefore need to stop to check your heart rate or the time.

On that particular evening I pushed myself really hard and when I got to the top of a hill I believed I had reached my maximum heart rate. I tried to get my watch out from under my clothes to find out if I was right and when I finally did it proved hard to find enough light to see what it said. Not only did my heart rate go down during the time I had to stop, a few skiers even passed me.

At that point my thoughts started to wander. How can I avoid this happening again? I thought of everything from transforming myself into a cyborg to contact lenses that can keep useful information. The idea of converting myself into a cyborg did not seem entirely safe or painless and how would the contact lenses receive data? I needed something else, something discrete, nice looking and that people are familiar with. Then it came to me, sports glasses with an optic unit!

I drew some sketches and worked out how the glasses would work. After working on my idea for a while I thought the idea was so brilliant that I needed to apply for a patent to protect it. Said and done.

Today, almost two years since my appifiny, the brand Pulzit is born. Pulzit is not just glasses, it´s a concept. Apart from the glasses we have also developed the Pulzit Statistics which is the perfect tool to follow up the progress of your training.

I hope you will find the Pulzit package helpful in your training, regardless your style of excercise, and remember, the Pulzit team is always here to help and support you.
