Abstract

In this paper, a prototype of portable device for monitoring athletes' heart rate during exercise is presented. A color coded bracelet was design as a wrist heart rate monitor which mainly communicates with user via color-coding technology using the RGB LED Strap. This color-coding method makes the heart rate easier to monitor and enabling the user to identify their heart rate level at a certain time. Different colors signify different ranges of heart rate. Heart rate information was transferred from a Garmin heart rate strap (chest strap) to the user color coded bracelet using ANT+ technology. This information is then used to display heart rate level of the user on the bracelet using a color code. The device demonstrated that it is very helpful for athletes and coaches to monitor the fitness level of athletes and regulate their exercise training regime in a more effective and safer manner.
