The Performance Monitor 5 (PM5) was introduced in 2014. It was engineered to include all of the best features that have evolved over time in our long line of PMs—reliable workout data, easy navigation, preprogrammed and custom workouts, heart rate monitoring capability, and games, to name a few.
The addition of ANT+ and Bluetooth technology in the PM5 has made it possible to connect to a wide range of wireless devices for a variety of entertainment and fitness apps, including our own ErgData. This has become a compelling reason for many people to upgrade to the PM5.
