Default What's this gadget called?

A few weeks ago I was playing at an open jam, and the drum kit had a little electronic metronome-type gadget velcro'd to the snare drum head that had a readout telling me my BPM as I played (I guess based on snare hits). I found it really helpful, because I have a tendency to rush.

Anyone know what this thing might be called? Thanks.

Sounds like the Groove Guide, or some other similar gadget:

Yeah, that's like it. I also found something called a Beat Bug that does the same thing. I'm hoping to find out they have a generic name so I can maybe find the model he was using.

I have a portable metronome that goes in the ear (most people think it is a Bluetooth) that is called a Beat Bug.
