"The Wahoo Fitness Blue HR heart rate monitor is the world's first Bluetooth Smart heart rate monitor made for the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, new iPod Touch (5th generation), iPad (3rd and 4th generations).
Wahoo has made it their goal to demystify heart rate training because there's no quicker way to see results than to integrate a heart rate monitor into your workouts. Wahoo's proprietary Burn and Burst Heart Rate Training Plans are only found in the free Wahoo Fitness App. Burn plans help you shed pounds, and Burst plans help you shed minutes. And both help you do it faster by training smarter. No Zones. No Math. Just two simple choices to help you reach your goals faster. Wahoo Fitness's in-house physiologists have taken the traditional ""five-zone approach"" to heart rate training and reduced it to two key heart rate numbers. The Burn, which is the heart rate at which your body utilizes fat as the primary fuel source; and The Burst, the recommended heart rate that should be maintained for short durations to improve speed and performance. Wahoo has created Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Burn and Burst training plans customized to your individual skill level and fitness goals.
TECHNICAL DETAILSBlue HR setup is super easy. Wrap the strap around your back, and snap the sensor into place. Make sure that the sensor is located on your sternum or just below your breasts, and that the Wahoo Fitness logo is facing up. Download and open the Wahoo Fitness App or one of dozens of compatible Apps. Pair the Blue HR within the App's settings menu. Now you are ready to work out.

Delivery quick and without fuss.
Would recommend the device.
This is an update. Early in 2015 the device began to stop working. On looking inside battery, thinking a quick replacement would sort it out, I found that the housing was all corroded. Since then the item has failed to work.
But even after 2 years of use there was no sign of any problem with the actual strap that comes into contact with the chest.
The Wahoo Blue uses the new Bluetooth 4 radio which is identical to the older Bluetooth 3 but uses far less power, important to mobile phone users using their devices to track long runs or exercise sessions. Only the iPhone 4S and 5 are supported as yet with few apps capable of reading the signal. So far no Android devices are supported but newer ones, such as the LG Google Nexus 4 8GB Smartphone Black Sim Free do have Bluetooth 4 onboard and so hopefully it may work with them in the future.
In use I found the reception to be unreliable and episodic in nature, fine when it worked but prone to dropping out. The belt itself is easy to fit, comfortable enough and sits well once in place but I note that at least one other user here has reported signs of wear with sustained use. As well as the Wahoo iOS app there are a variety of other apps, free and paid for, that the Wahoo will work with but not all apps that worked with earlier models will support this new unit.
Uses low power Bluetooth 4
Comfortable in use
Can be used with various iOS apps
Bluetooth 4 is not widely supported yet
Irregular and unreliable connection status
Works with few mobile phones or apps
No Android support (yet)
Belt might be too small for larger users
Doubts over the long term durability of the strap
I assume the sensor is giving an accurate reading of my heart. The readings are as I'd expect them to be at my current level of fitness.
