The CORE Body Temperature Monitoring sensor is similar to Heart Rate Monitor sensors in that it uses ANT+ and BLE and it paired to an athletes sport computer or watch and the data is only visible to them.

The CORE sensor is not a telemetry device. The CORE sensor is fastened securely to the heart rate monitor strap using the securing clips.
