HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - June 15, 2016) - Tigra Sport, designer and manufacturer of cycling and outdoor sports accessories, is pleased to announce the launch of the TRIO fitness sensor. The 3-in-1 wearable -- offering heart rate monitoring without a chest strap in addition to cycling and running cadence, is equipped with one of the most accurate optical heart rate sensor modules available on the market. The IP68 rated sensor, which easily adjusts for use on the arm or leg, is available now at TigraSport.com.
TRIO offers a truly viable alternative to conventional heart rate chest straps. Powered by PerformTek® Precision Biometrics*, TRIO is clinically validated to provide real-time biometric data with a high degree of accuracy and consistency, satisfying the arduous needs of professional or semi-professional athletes.
Comfort and Portability
Alongside delivering highly accurate heart rate measurements, TRIO provides cycling and running cadence, delivering comprehensive and meaningful performance data with the convenience of a single sensor. Unlike conventional cycling cadence sensors, which are mounted on bicycles and equipment, TRIO is wearable and portable -- benefiting users with multiple bicycles or those who use third party equipment for training.
With Bluetooth 4.0, TRIO works with any Bluetooth Smart Ready device or app that supports the use of Bluetooth Smart sensors. Designed for use with both iOS and Android devices, TRIO is compatible with most common fitness apps including Strava, MapMyFitness, Endomondo, Runkeeper, Runtastic, and more. TRIO doesn't require the use of proprietary devices or apps, but does offer the free TigraFit iOS app which provides 43 data sets to choose from, covering pace, altitude, calories, and more.
Easy to Use
TRIO is equipped with Velcro straps in two sizes for easy adjustments, allowing for use on the arm and leg. Hand-washable and exchangeable, TRIO is waterproof with an IP68 rating and has a battery life of more than eight hours on a single charge.
The TRIO Sensor is available for $99.99 at TigraSport.com.
