Beep..beep… Are you still alive?
Okay, let’s get to the heart of the matter. This is not an ordinary, run of the mill, Heart Rate Monitor. This is a Geeky, ordinary, run of the mill, Heart Rate monitor. It not only shows an 8×8 dot matrix LED display of a heart that pulses to your heart rate, but it tells you the beats per minute in the binary numbering system.
Yes, this counts from 0 (Zero) pulses… sorry to say this but you are either dead, or the monitor isn’t working… all the way to 255 pulses a minute… now that is quite an Aerobic Workout you’ve got going.
