Ideally we would all be training with power and heart rate, but that’s not always an option. Power meters can be cost prohibitive, but high quality heart rate monitors like the Scosche Rhythm+ 2.0 make for an important training tool on their own and can be had for under $100. This waterproof and dustproof monitor transmits a signal through Bluetooth and ANT+ for compatibility with just about any cycling computer, as well as the ever-expanding list of health and exercise phone apps out there. And if you’ve always found chest-strap monitors to be uncomfortable, the soft, stretchy armband of the Rhythm+ 2.0 provides a perfect alternative.
