The new ithlete ECG receiver is the 3rd major revision of the design in 2 years!
Most importantly, we’ve found a way to make the same design compatible with both Android and iOS devices. So whether you have an iPad or a Galaxy Tab, iPhone or HTC Desire, the new receiver works with them all! (Some newer Samsung and HTC models previously required a modified receiver – with the new model of receiver we have eliminated this problem).
We have also done a complete redesign of the case and the way the jack is secured to make it more resilient and robust. When combined with the extended range we have given it, we are sure you will agree this is a very worthwhile all round improvement.

I just purchased this system on Monday. Will get the new reciever?
Hi Mike, we’ve had the new receivers for a couple of weeks now, and anyone who has ordered through our website will be sent these as standard! This was just an announcement to make others aware!
I’ve also checked and can confirm your order has been shipped and is on its way to you!
I have had mine for about 2 weeks and it looks just like that so I might have the new one. I am currently trying to compare data from hrv(ithlete), resting hr, and Rusko test. It’s a little preliminary but so far it seems HRV is most accurate to how I feel and previous work out level/stress, resting hr has been pretty good for me in the past but seems more temperamental. If i am sure of the accuracy of hrv for my body it will definitely be the easiest, sit down 1 minute red, green orange. Works fine with your hr strap and my polar hybrid. My fingers are crossed. :)
Just thought I would follow up and see how your testing has been going?
Hope all is well,
Does it work directly with Runkeeper now?
Welcome to the ithlete blog!
Data from the Precision Pulse app can be uploaded in to RunKeeper by following the guidelines here http://myithlete.com/FAQ.html#faq10.
As for ithlete, the best thing to do is lobby RunKeeper to include the ithlete HRV daily numbers as a standard training measure. The more people that ask, the better the chances!
We already purchased two receivers.
What are the differences between release 1 and 2?
How do we know what release they are?
Hello and welcome to the ithlete blog,
To summarise the differences above the new ithlete ECG receiver offers;
– Increased range
– Improved durability
– Compatibility with many more devices
We also redesigned the case, which may help you tell the difference between the two (the new receiver is more rounded at the top)!
Thanks, but how do I know what type of release my first two receivers are?
The new version is rounded at the top, above the word ithlete, whereas the older version is flat right across.
I hope that helps
I am learning to use my ithlete.
I could not use it on my iPhone which is protected with an OtterBox cover because the ithlete plug was too short.
Ended up buying the ProCable 3.5mm Audio Extender at http://www.radtech.us/Products/procable-shortz-audio-extender.aspx – Now it works!
Suggestion for ithlete make the four version/revision with a longer plug so the 90% of athletes who protct their iPhones with a cover are able to use the ECG receiver!
Glad to hear about adding the comment line. How about several additional field, such as distance run, time exercising?
Question: When will the iphone version be available?
Welcome to the ithlete blog!
Thanks for the suggestion re phone cases, this is something we have come across and will take in to consideration in future developments.
To share your ideas in a little more detail would you mind completing our 2 minute survey? Would like to hear more about suggestions for comment capture! http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/X2SFH5G
The new ECG receiver is compatible with iPhone, and ithlete app Version 2 for the iPhone is already available (it was released earlier this year).
I have version 1 but stopped using it for HRM as the range is insufficient. How can I know that the V2 range is satisfactory before I buy again?
Welcome to our blog.
Using the Cardiosport chest strap and the new dongle then the range, with the phone in front in portrait orientation, is at least 90cm (36 inches) and in many cases more!
