Apple Fitness Plus is one of the best services Apple offers, with loads of great exercises and programs to help you get healthy or stay fit. We've already covered the best exercise bikes for Apple Fitness Plus discounts this Cyber Weekend, so now we're going to look at the best heart rate monitor discounts to get you up and running with Fitness Plus in no time.

In the past, heart rate monitors were clumsy straps you'd need to place around your chest while working out, providing you with all the information you need but causing discomfort at the same time.

Nowadays, heart rate monitors are far more discrete, often built into your favorite smartwatch or fitness tracker. Here are the three best deals we've found for heart rate monitors to use with Apple Fitness Plus this Cyber Monday, all with different form factors to choose from.
