Garmin Adds Optical Heart Rate Sensor

For the new Forerunner 225, Garmin teamed up with Mio Global to integrate an optical heart rate sensor. Much like the Mio Alpha and Link, you can now thankfully ditch the heart rate strap when heading out on your next run.

TomTom Cardio GPS Watch With Optical Heart Rate

It appears chest straps may soon be a thing of the past, with Mio Global driving the change. Yesterday, TomTom launched the Cardio version of their popular GPS sport watch, updated with a built-in optical heart rate monitor, eliminating the need for a separate chest strap. As many people now train using heart rate zones, Mio OEMing their optical heart rate technology (Adidas is also a partner) is a great step forward.
