The Runtastic app gives you the option of connecting a Heart Rate Monitor so you can record your heart rate during a running session. To connect a Heart Rate Monitor, simply open the Activity Setup by tapping the Activity Setup icon in the bottom right corner and tap “Heart Rate”.
Runtastic Heart Rate Combo Monitor
To connect the Runtastic Heart Rate Combo Monitor, make sure that the Bluetooth of your device is switched on and then put on the Monitor like you would when going for a run.
The option of connecting to the device has been available since Version 4.0 of the app. It works via Bluetooth Smart Technology (Bluetooth 4.0) and is compatible with devices running Android 4.3 or higher (it also works on the Samsung Galaxy S4 device).
This option allows you to connect other Heart Rate Monitors. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your HR monitor will work as each device can have different specifications.
Setting up Heart Rate zones
The option "Edit your Heart Rate Zones" allows you to customize the Heart Rate Zones to fit your personal values.
