The Jabra© Sport Pulse© streams everything from your workout such as heart rate, calories, and pace to the secure TrainerMD’s 360 Health program dashboard. The program covers people of all ages and fitness levels with nutrition and performance data integrated into the program.
This information can be shared with the user’s personal physician, nurses and/or personal trainer. These professionals can receive real-time notifications on the user’s vitals and exercise data. This integration between user and medical professionals will provide vital information that can be used to monitor/recommend ongoing health considerations and progress tracking.
