Nov 14, 2019

Company is leveraging the world’s leading chest heart-rate monitor to provide real-time audio coaching and insights on improving form and preventing injuries | Source: Racefox STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Racefox, the Swedish company helping the world’s runners and skiers improve their performance and prevent injuries, extends its reach by adding the Polar H10 heart rate sensor as a compatible fitness wearable. Athletes with the Polar H10 sensor can now try the Racefox Run Tryout , a free running form analysis. This is the first cost-effective method to do a full-body analysis on running form and asymmetries. The Polar H10 connects not only to the Racefox App and Polar sports watches but to any Bluetooth or ANT+ compatible smartwatch. Polar H10 is available for purchase both online and in specialty sports and electronic stores around the world. “Polar is delighted that start-ups like Racefox are leveraging Polar products and data to deliver compelling and unique value to athletes. The Polar H10 is known worldwide as the ‘gold standard’ for accuracy making its integration with Racefox particularly meaningful for Racefox athletes. Likewise, courtesy of the Racefox platform, existing Polar H10 athletes can now tap into an entirely new dimension of insight regarding their running and cross-country skiing technique,” says Tom Fowler, President of Polar USA. “It’s a well-known secret among professional endurance athletes that low intensity heart-rate training benefits race performance. I’ve trained my entire career with Polar, with the majority of my training consists of long low heart-rate sessions,” says Tord Asle Gjerdalen, winner of 2017 and 2018 Visma Ski Classics tours and two-time gold medalist at the cross-country skiing world championships. “Now with real-time movement analysis from Racefox, I can discover when fatigue is causing a breakdown in technique. This usually occurs before hitting my heart-rate thresholds. I am also able to ensure that my strength training workouts are having the desired result by checking my balance report when I cross train running using Racefox Run.” “We are proud to add the Polar H10, the world’s leading chest sensor, as a compatible wearable,” says Magnus Jonsson, Racefox Founder and CEO. “Chest sensors have the most accurate heart-rate information and through leveraging the accelerometer data can also provide important fully body movement information. It’s exciting that our intelligent AI service can reach a broader audience with the global availability of the Polar H10. Polar H10 customers can download the app and try Racefox for free. All you need is your phone, headphones and a Polar H10 to get started.
