The glut of fitness trackers on the market and being peddled on various crowdfunding websites either wrap around the wrist or chest. Unfortunately, bands need to be very still to be effective; chest strap monitors are more accurate but they can chafe, retain odor, need battery replacements, and can be simply uncomfortable.
The team at CardioCycle is looking to fund its solution: the SenseON. The heart rate/breathing monitor attaches to the torso rather than the wrist or the chest for greater accuracy and claims of clinical accuracy. The .4 ounce SenseON is made of silicon and as such is flexible enough to flex with a body’s movements, important so that the three electrodes it has always maintain contact.
