Impact Sports Technologies introduces the world's first armband heart rate monitor and calorimeter, the ePulse2TM. Until now dynamic heart rate monitors required an uncomfortable chest strap and special watch practically restricting their use to serious athletes. ePulse2, the "People's Fitness Monitor," now makes it practical and convenient for anyone who exercises or is interested in tracking calories burned to obtain the benefits of heart rate monitoring while conducting literally any type of activity from running to walking or simply doing daily chores. Since the ePulse2 Armband Heart Rate Monitor does not require an ungainly chest strap and special watch, it can be conveniently used for general fitness, during aerobics, running, tennis/racquetball, golf, resistance training, weight loss monitoring, or even daily activities. Features: Continuous Heart Rate Max / Min / Avg Heart Rate Exercise Calories Burned Calorie Count Down Target Heart Rate Zones Color Day / Night OLED Display Custom Heart Rate Zones Rechargeable Battery Exercise Time Strapless – Armband Only! Stop Watch with Split Times Technology: The ePulse2 brings the benefits of heart rate monitoring to everyone with its ease of use and convenience. This is accomplishment via sophisticated integration of light-sensor and micro-chip technology (similar to that used in hospital heart rate monitors) that allows the ePulse2 to accurately read the pulse from the forearm under exercise and motion conditions. The ePulse2 is lightweight, incorporates a customizable, easily read day/night full color OLED display and is powered by a rechargeable battery. It requires no programming to immediately display heart rate and with a simple input of personal data, it will also calculate calories burned and target exercise zones. ePulse2 works equally well for both men and women. This innovative product addresses the prevailing issue other heart rate monitors struggle to overcome…the wearing of a chest strap! At best, chest straps are an annoyance, and at worst, are so uncomfortable that they alienate many people from utilizing this type of valuable training and fitness tool. In particular, women seem very sensitive to chest straps and many won't use heart rate monitors due to this physical requirement. Now, ePulse2 comfortably conveys heart rate (and other important data) allowing anyone to easily regulate their workout intensity and better attain specific fitness or weight management goals.

Far Infrared (FIR) radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of radio waves. The name means "below red" and comes from the Latin infra, "below", red being the color of visible light with the longest wavelength. The boundary between visible and infrared light is not precisely defined. Far Infrared energy effectively breaks down water molecules that accumulate and store unwanted toxins in our body that block blood circulation and impair cellular functions. Exposure to far Infrared waves steadily circulates blood, removing blockages in the blood vessels and allowing for proper oxygen distribution to all parts of the body. This action has had success in treating skin disorders such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. In a study performed by American researchers, the sweat of people using a conventional sauna was found to be 95 to 97% water while the sweat of those using a Far infrared heat system was 80 to 85% water with the non-water portion principally cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals (such as mercury and aluminum), sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid. The unusually high concentration of heavy metals and other fat-soluble toxins is not found in the sweat from normal exercise The comforting heat from the infrared body wrap increases skin temperature, causing fats and oils to "melt" and seep out of the skin's sweat glands. As sweat and oil are secreted, the toxins dissolved in them are secreted as well. By excreting these toxins and then washing them off your body, your toxic load is lowered and cellular health improves.
