In this weekly columnMichael Hicks, Wearables Editor at Android Central, talks about the world of wearables, apps, and fitness technology related to running and health, in your quest to be faster and fitter.

Athletes often choose a chest strap, armband or fitness watch to evaluate health and effort. However, a relatively specific (and strange) option is to use wireless headphones with heart rate monitoring. I recently heard about this technology and immediately decided to test whether the headphones' heart rate accuracy is good enough for serious athletes.

When I read about him Sennheiser Momentum Sportwhich sends HR data to the Polar Flow app, I was wondering if Polar H10 users would want or rely on a headphone solution or if this is aimed at more casual fans.
