Update #3

New York!

Comment

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your continuing support of ALPHA.  We are taking ALPHA "on the road" and today, in New York, I met with Jeff Dengate a senior editor at Runner's World Magazine.  Jeff is all about running and his heart rate hovers around 40 BPM - seriously. I kept thinking - maybe ALPHA is wrong (?) but I crossed checked the number against a reading from a chest strap he put on and, nope, it was bang on.... Jeff, you are one seriously fit dude! Look for some feedback from Jeff online at Runnersworld.com in about a week.  He really likes what we are all about - that we are focusing on doing one thing really well; getting an accurate heart rate at performance speeds.  No one else can show test results like ours at speeds of up to 12mph!  Keep checking back to Alpha on Kickstarter for more updates.  I'm seeing TechCrunch this afternoon! 

Be well,

Liz
