It’s all in the wrist.

Omron just announced their new Strapless Heart Rate Monitor (HR-500U) in January.  And we’ve already seen it become part of a challenge where bloggers lost 287 Lbs & 223 inches. And today, we are starting a new challenge, but this time it’s all about running intervals.

25 bloggers will get to test out the new HR-500U  for three weeks and let us know what they think. Omron has eliminated the strap, so now when it comes to monitoring and staying in THE ZONE, it’s all in the wrist.  Then by connecting the monitor via USB cable and integrating it with, they can transfer data and track progress over time and share achievements via email, Facebook and Twitter with friends, family or healthcare professionals from their own personal dashboard. And finally, we are celebrating our campaign with a virtual 5K at the end. Everyone is welcome to join us on this day and run in their own community.

Campaign: March 11th-30th
