Fourth Frontier is a leading health tech company that focuses on improving heart health. Its flagship device, the Frontier x2 is a smart heart monitor that captures real-time high-quality ECG readings and uses AI analysis to understand heart health. What sets it apart from regular heart monitors is the real-time vibration alerts that notify users when they exceed their limits during activities. In this article, we will be discussing its abilities, expected price in Nepal, features, and more of the Frontier X2 to understand how it can improve heart monitoring and overall health.
Frontier X2 Overview:
Frontier X2 is the world’s first smart heart monitor that can capture ECG in real-time which can then be shared live or exported in a file for any other use. Other heart monitors require you to stay still for 30 seconds.
It majorly measures Heart rate, strains, and heart rate variability during any activities or when resting (including sleeping). It also records additional parameters such as breathing rate, training load, body shock, and step cadence. The device comes with an embedded AI system, that recommends users different personalized workout insights based on their daily routine. The Frontier X2 can track and analyze up to 20 different activities, including running, cycling, meditation, sleep, swimming, and more.
One standout feature of the Frontier X2 is its real-time vibration alerts. This feature helps users stay within their limits, preventing them from pushing too hard too soon. It eventually allows users to exercise confidently without constantly checking their watch or phone.
Design and Dimension
The Frontier X2 is designed to be worn around the chest, similar to other heart monitors, to track and analyze heart activities. However, unlike regular monitors that transmit the measured signals directly to a watch or smartphone, the Frontier X2 has the capability to measure, record, and process the heart’s activities internally within the device itself.
The Frontier X2 is a lightweight device, weighing only 25 grams. It is made of durable plastic material and has an IP67 rating, which means it is resistant to dust and water(for up to 1.5 meters). This enables one to wear it without worrying about potential damage caused by dust, sweat, or water exposure.
