Heart Tech Plus understands the importance of heart rate technology and the amount of reliable and objective data it can produce. This valuable data can help you improve your practice and can ultimately facilitate the learning process for you and your students. Implementing heart rate technology helps your students understand the “why” behind exercise and allows for goal setting and independent learning to happen. Heart rate technology can help create lifelong movers which can help combat the obesity crisis in America. With the data that the Heart Tech Plus system produces, users are able to effectively reflect on their workouts so they can improve their performance over time.
