Giveaway Extravaganza: Garmin FR15 and a Scosche RHYTHM+ Optical HR band


It’s like peanut butter and jelly (or in the case of Europe: Nutella and anything).  The Garmin FR15 is one of the best little GPS watches and activity monitors out there.  Then you combine it with my current favorite heart rate sensor – the Scosche RHYTHM+, and you’ve got the perfect duo.

The FR15 can easily pair right up to the RHYTHM+, allowing you to get heart rate readings without the annoying heart rate strap.  Then, after you’re done exercising you can use the FR15 as an activity monitor for the rest of the day.  Which is anything like my last days is mostly doing…nothing.  But don’t worry, it’s good at monitoring nothing too.
