The Heart Zones Blink 3.0 is an amazing fitness wearable! It tracks heart rate, calories, steps, & cadence. Check out why it is so unique and fun to use!
When you first get your Heart Zones Blink 3.0 go ahead and download the Heart Zones phone app. The app will begin by asking you a few personal stats (age, gender, weight, etc). You can manually set your heart rate zones by clicking Set My Zones from the Settings screen. Next you will easily pair your Heart Zones Blink 3.0 device by pressing the button on top of it until it flashes blue and red. After a few moments it will sync to your phone and is ready to use! The Home screen on the app will allow you to select your workout style and it will begin to record data. Slip the Blink 3.0 onto your forearm or upper arm and get moving!
There is even a setup video here to help guide you.
When your workout is complete you can save it and also email the results. A graph and data will show average heart rate, peak heart rate, calories burned, time spent in the heart rate zones and points earned.
Swipe the screen to see pie graphs depicting the time spent in each heart rate zone.
I found the Heart Zones Blink 3.0 to be very easy to use! It did a great job recording important and useful metrics from my workout. I used it on a couple of runs both indoor and outdoor. Unlike some fitness wearables it still accurately recorded my distance when running indoors. That is a huge pet peeve of mine when your running distance is not accurate when on a treadmill verses outside. I am happy to say the Heart Zones Blink 3.0 recorded accurate distances for indoor workouts.
Another favorable aspect about the Blink 3.0 is to visually see time spent in the different heart rate zones. It is very helpful to see on a graph if your warm up was too light or too intense. Also when you think you are pushing the pace you can see what heart rate zone you are truly in and gauge if you need to increase or decrease your effort level.
The wristband material is breathable and easily dries following my workouts. It includes a USB charger and an additional larger strap. I like that the Blink 3.0 feels lightweight to wear. The strap is easily adjustable during mid workout. I really like that there is not an annoying chest strap. The Blink 3.0 is lightweight and I never even think about it being there when working out. A really cool and unique feature is that it flashes the color of your heart rate zone while you are exercising. So amazing to have instant training feedback!
Each of the facets about the Heart Zones Blink 3.0 are essential when training for a race performance or just looking to stay fit. Heart rate based training is a proven method to increase sports performance, avoid injury, avoid overtraining, and reach health and fitness goals. The Heart Zones Blink 3.0 will act as your guide to ensure you are training accurately for your specific goal.
