Wondering why I didn't get this before
Really good fr F45 workouts. You get to see where you stand with others in the session since your performance is on the board. A great way to also keep pushing yourself further, especially when you feel like you want to give in to the pain and let go
Purchased in June 2020 at F45 Macquarie park for A$80.00.
Does what it advertises
I joined a F45 on a 6 month contract and got the LionHeart heart rate monitor included in the deal. It does what it says so I can't complain. I have since unpaired my LionHeart heart rate monitor and paired my Garmin HRM Run to the LionHeart website and now I can monitor my heart rate on the F45 LionHeart screen and also on my garmin Fenix 5X. For me that is a much better option.
OK for F45 training days
I got this band after signed off with the challenge. It seems to work great but it does the same job as a fit watch (ie Fitbit). The good part of this item is that you can track in any screen while in use at F45 however, it seems not to sync with F45 lion heart portal at times.
Good to see your workout craphouse to change battery
Its good to see and track your efforts during your workout. But my major issue is in replacing the battery. Followed all instructions and those of the trainers and have completely destroyed the back of the monitor so now have to purchase a new one. A better design would be appreciated. Also the band could be a bit more functional with a different clasp as they keep slipping.
Love the product, it just needs more functionality!
I own a FitBit and love it, but I feel in order to truly track a workout I must wear a HRM around my chest. I own a MyZone HRM that I've used for years and it has an awesome app that allows me to see my progress during a workout on my IPhone and when I complete a workout it creates an awesome bar graph showing the results of my workout. In this same app it keeps a log of all of my workouts and I can even link up with my friends who I workout with so we can see each other's results and cheer each other on. Through this app I can name my worko...ut so I know which workout I completed (ex: F45 Athletica) and I can rate it. This is the type of functionality I wish F45 LionHeart would incorporate into their product and then I'd use it. My F45 LionHeart HRM is still sitting brand new in the box because I don't like just receiving an email with a line graph - please offer an app with awesome capabilities and I will jump on switching over to your HRM!
Over-rated and over-priced but handy in session
There's little more to this product than being able to see your heart rate and how you are comparing to others in your class in real-time. There is so much that could be done to enhance the back-end analytics and give a more comprehensive view of your workout.
I notice they issued a cease and desist to a free app make who did just that. Disappointing as for the price you get little more than your real time heart-rate.
For a more wholistic approach and much better data analytics you'd be better off purchasing a FitBit or similar tracking product.

Good start but can do better
I like being able to compete within the session, seeing mine and others’ readings - great idea! I like the analytics, good measure of progress but would like to see more graph and charting options provided. They can offer to graph a range of dates, graph your overall progress over time, or even just summarise the results you have. As it is you have to scroll through each daily chart and look at 3 events on a page only. It’s good, but room to improve.
Doesn't work very well but keeps sessions competitive
The F45 Lionheart reports that my heart rate does not go above 156 bpm even though I know when running I often sit at 160+ quite comfortably and trust me in some sessions I must be at my VO2 max! I often get 2 reports sent to me after my session (someone else mentioned they also get this) with often different results? I gave it 2 stars and not 1 as it does keep me competitive during sessions trying to beat others while working out even though I am sure I am a lot more exhausted than some of the other people training but I have no evidence to ba...ck that up. Overall not a very well implemented solution and the cost of the product feels like a total rip off and is clearly aimed at the cheapest solution possible to maximize profits. Look online for a second hand one if you are keen as many people offload them after they realise how crap they are but for me I will keep it for competitive reasons. Would I buy it again? No. It would be great if the screens supported 3rd party HR monitors (like Polar/Garmin) and next time I will buy a Garmin watch and do my own reporting!!

Deserves Zero Stars.
Do not purchase this product, stick with reliable heart rate monitors such as Garmin or Fitbit.
I bought this heart rate monitor for $50 prior to the F45 challenge (it was sold as a must have). The issues were obvious from day one. Not receiving post work out logs. Ability to use the HRM outside of the studio is confusing and unclear. Connects to phone but no app to see data in real time. The issue however that bothered me the most was that this HRM is a random numbers generator when it came to calories. The log would state that for a 45 minu...
Questions & Answers
I registered my lionheart serial # but when i go to gym it says i need to register it again. Any ideas?
How do I change my name to a nickname that shows on the tv screen in the studio? I’ve changed it on my account details but it still shows up on the TV display with my full first and second name!
My peek heart rate should be about 167. This put my target of 70% at 116. The F45 app showed me at 68 % with a heart rate of 170? My age,height and weight are correct. Any suggestions?
