How do you feel about the use of technology (heart rate monitors, activity trackers etc.) in training horses? Do they help?

I'm an endurance rider, i think they are great tools although they would never be better than the feelings you can have with experience... moreover heart rate monitor will never tell you as much as your ear can tell you when checking your horse's heart.
Activity trackers helped me get my horse back into shape after stall rest so yes but I have never used heart rate monitors
