Two of the most crucial pieces of exercise equipment are a heart rate monitor and a good music player. Now Sportline combines the best of both worlds with the 1075 META. Short for Music Enhanced Training Assistant, the META continuously monitors your heart rate via the included chest belt. Once strapped on, the device provides accurate ECG heart readings while you power down the path or push through your 20th pushup, letting you follow your heart rate variations down to the second. At the same time, the 1075 META plays all your favorite songs, with storage capacity for up to 1 GB of digital music. Just set your desired fitness goals and plug in some tunes, and the META player does the rest. The META player even provides audible, in-ear feedback when you reach and/or exceed your heart-rate and fitness zones. It's like having your own personal trainer, but one who's capable of playing music as well. Other features include a target zone selector, a rechargeable battery, a battery-level indicator, and a pair of earbuds.
