Really? How do they do that? What's the sensor and how does it transmit data? HR varies if one breathes deeply, which is very noticeable when taking an HRV reading, so perhaps that's what's being recorded. If that's the case, I suspect it would work well up to some HR/effort, then completely fail.
Results matter
