Designer: Yamaha

The Bodibeat comes with reverse earbuds, a clip-on earlobe heart rate monitor, USB cable, velcro arm strap, and software to manage your music. The user-interface is a bit confusing thanks to the non-traditional 2 main buttons. It takes some getting used to but I can see why Yamaha designed them to be pinch style buttons instead of push button. When you have it strapped to your arm, it really is easier to pinch than push. The small monochrome screen is a bit of a cop out since small color screens are becoming the norm but thankfully it’s so bright, reading isn’t a problem.
