Heart Rate Monitor - First data

I was as excited as a tweenage girl getting her hands on the latest Fall Out Boy CD yesterday when my heart rate monitor arrived in the mail. In about 30 seconds I had my shirt off and had the chest strap and monitor on. 1.2 minutes after that I had my first heart rate readings.

I wore the monitor during our Thursday night run. We ran a little longer course and man was it chilly. Here are the results.

The data collection is dead simple. I just threw the CSV into an excel spreadsheet. I will feed the data into a database for some more analysis but so far I am happy with the Product.

Should be fun consuming this new data set.

Cold Feet

I created the Not So Mobile Temperature logger using the Arduino. Not so mobile because my 9V battery packs did not work. 

I used it to track the temperature under my desk at work. My feet are constantly cold at work in the fall/winter months. This day was a chilly day but not terribly cold.

Log Start Time: 7:36AM
Log End Time: 4:30PM

Average Temperature: 63.71
Mode: 64.17
StdDev: .085
Max: 65.93
Min: 60.65

Here is a graph using a subset of the data set.
