Small Lightweight Necessity: The Fingertip Heart Rate Monitor

Nowadays, everything comes in small packages, meaning in portable form or even if it was portable before, it has become even smaller. Now you’ll see the small gadget that I will be talking about also follows this example.

Initially, as I remember how my father used to strap it to his chest in order to check his heart rate, I also remember his usual complaints about how uncomfortable it is and all that. Then to his relief and of the people same his age, a new gadget came into the market in which you just have to press a button, and you will know instantly your heart’s condition. Still, neither of these devices were that accurate. Now, the latest addition to such devices is the Fingertip Heart Rate Monitor.

It’s very simple to use and a lot more accurate than its predecessors; reading accurate up to ±2 beats-per-minutes. Now, moving on to how to use this device to check your heart beat, all you have to do is to clip your finger on the device, and that’s it. It will give you information regarding your EKG. One very useful thing about it, is its small size. See the statistics: It is 2.25 inches long, 1.25 inches wide, and 1.25 inches tall. Now about it’s weight (or more accurately mass), it is 2 oz., in grams that amounts to 57 grams; so it is extremely lightweight.

All these things in the end contribute to the fact that you can keep it in your pocket without feeling its weight. Moreover, it is not uncomfortable at all unlike the tools that came before it, which cause much discomfort. Also, as the previous devices were time consuming, this one is almost instantaneous. I mean, all you have to do is to just put your finger in between its clips, wait for a few seconds, and that’s it – you will know about your pulse rate in that much time. Convenient, isn’t it?

Overall, I would say that it’s a very useful tool and almost a necessity today, as heart problems are increasing day by day. People are in need of checking their pulse rate as often as they can, and whenever they want, without too much of a hassle, and this thing surely solves their problem…it costs only $99.95.
