Review: Runalyzer Heart Rate Monitor and Accessories
Runalyzer supports a number of existing applications (free/ad supported and paid versions) available from the Apple AppStore including 321Run, Pedometer Ultimate, LogYourRun, iSmoothRun, Biky Coach, Joggy Coach, Cyctastic Pro, and others. The two applications tested during this review were Joggy Coach, Biky Coach and Runtastic which all seemed to work fine with the Runalyzer heart rate monitor system.
Developers may be interested to note that access to the Runalyzer API (Application Programming Interface) is available from the Runware Dev Center so developers can build heart rate measurement information into their existing iOS based applications.
There are a number of functions available via the API, currently up to version 1.0.5, including initialising the API, starting and stopping the monitoring service, retrieving heart rate information, and extracting details about the chest strap (name and type). Demonstration applications and documentation are included on the Dev Center website.
