Instantly gather data for the entire class with a continuous heart rate stream with Gopher Optic™. Powered by patented, clinically-accurate electro-optical monitoring technology from Mio™, monitors are accurate at any speed. They wirelessly sync to an iPad® through the Gopher HUB™ via ANT+™ technology.

Easy Setup and Tracking

Gopher Optic™ features one-step setup with colored LED indicator lights to help students easily track their heart rate target zone during workouts. Each strapless heart rate monitor features an electro-optical cell to sense the volume of blood under the skin and detect the heart’s true rhythm. Small lights on the band flash colors during activity. This light is the only indicator for the user as to what zone their current heart rate is in. Green means “light,” yellow means “moderate,” and red means “vigorous”.

Keep track of the entire class at the same time! The Gopher HUB™ can relay data for up to 100 heart rate monitors simultaneously. Students must stay within 30’ outdoors or 50’ indoors to transmit data.

No Chest Strap Required

The best part is there is no chest strap required! A comfortable, silicone band is moisture-resistant and adjusts from 5.9” to 8.2”. A battery indicator lights helps you keep Optic™ charged and ready to go! Simply connect Optic™ to the magnetic cable on the USB charger. A full charge lasts 6-8 hours.

Immediate Reports

Instantly analyze data in real time for each participant with our AssessTech™ Group Fitness App available for download in the App Store.

  • Participant’s name and class
  • Date of data collection
  • Start time and duration of activity
  • Average/Maximum/Minimum heart rate
  • Calories burned
  • A chart displaying the percentage of time spent in each heart rate zone
  • A real-time graph displaying activity and heart rate zones
