Beats Music, one of the most popular music streaming services, created a new app in collaboration with the Apple Watch called HeartbeatsMUSIC. The app allows people to focus on enjoying the music while they’re working out rather than spending the time searching for a good playlist.
If you want to get fit, fast and strong, just listen to your heart and get your hand on the new Apple Watch with this new amazing application, available for sale on April 24th.
The Apple Watch was engineered to measure the way in which the user moves, by detecting everything from how many calories you burn to heartbeat and pulse. On the back of the Watch’s case, a ceramic cover with sapphire lenses sits above a sensor that uses infrared and visible-light LEDs and photodiodes to detect the wearer’s heart rate. It uses an advanced sensor, alongside with an accelerometer and the GPS and WiFi of a connected iPhone. These sensors then suggest high beat per minute music during a cardio workout.
The app captures the changes in user’s pulse and activates the mic embedded within the Apple Watch. If music is playing nearby, HeartbeatsMUSIC will automatically detect the melody, artist, and song. In this sense, the app operates similarly to music discovery service Shazam, so it can quickly and efficiently identify a tune playing in the background. By guessing user preferences, HeartbeatsMUSIC requests to add the song to your playlist. Based on your heart rate, the app will then aggregate song suggestions from music playing overhead to deliver the right music for the occasion. It focuses on providing a personalized music experience for each user through a unique blend of digital innovation and musical passion. The app provides more than just access to music, it establishes an emotional connection to it as well.
Now there is more time to enjoy a workout and music! Listening to music while exercising has been found in multiple studies to create an increased sense of motivation, distracting the mind while increasing heart rate. It gives you the desire to move rather than to sit, and it elevates your mood. Most importantly, with this application you don’t need to spend about 45% of your time at the gym finding the right song.
With Apple Watch and the said app, not only does it improve your stats but it also enables you to make sure you’re training in the right zone, getting the fitness gains you want, and ensuring the recovery you need – you are getting a detailed picture of your fitness and running form which leads you to build speed and endurance more efficiently and burn fat faster.
The only drawback is that it needs to be continuously connected to an iPhone in order to work, which can be a big battery drain. And not just any iPhone–the oldest iPhone it will connect to is the iPhone 5, and it has to be running on iOS 8.2. It connects to the iPhone via Bluetooth. Also, the watch does not have GPS, which comes as a major disappointment, but according to the popularity of the iPhone 6 there is no doubt that this product will find the way to it’s customers.
This is a very good way to encourage you to put some distance between you and your chair, don’t you think?
