Summary: Great value. Had it now for about 4 weeks. Train 2-3 times a week with it and had no problems. Heart rate is picked up within a few seconds. It records all the data very effectively and does what I require, monitor my HR. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good HR monitor that isn't pricey.
Summary: I spent two months on and off looking at reviews for heart rate monitors before settling on this one. I have read many of the reviews for this watch and I can say, having never used a heart rate monitor in my life, this one fits the bill perfectly.
Summary: This is an excellent product. Sent by Avides from Germany to me in the UK but arrived promptly. Have read a few complaints about the monitor picking up heart rate but I have had no problems (although I do not have an excessively hairy chest!).
Summary: easy to use. set up is straight forward. was just what i was looking for.upper and lower limits really helped me pacing my runs. use it every time now very pleased only down side it sometimes takes a few minutes to find heart beat sometimes straight away so i just put it on earlier.
Summary: I bought this product to replace my Cardiosport Heart Monitor, which had ceased to work. I found it easy to set up and use. The information enclosed includes a series of flowcharts which give clear and simple, step by step instructions.
Summary: I bought this to replace an old basic Polar monitor after its battery went - since I didn't think I could replace it myself (following the reviews when I bought it). An attraction of the Beurer monitor was that reviewers said that they could replace the batteries themselves.
Summary: It's a bit slow to pick up the signal, but once it does it works perfectly. Can't fault it. In fact I disagree with those who say it's complicated... you're up and running (literally) in a couple of minutes.
Summary: Spent several hours trying to get this to work - including tightening and loosening strap, wetting the back of the sensors - but only managed to get a reading once (so I know the model wasn't completely broken).
Summary: First time buyer of a heart rate monitor and it seemd to do the biz absolutley fine. I have only used basic setting to date but no problems reported. Takes a couple of minutes for the heart rate to get picked up (moisture on the contacts) but is something I can live with!!
Summary: Have read the reviews, I looked forward to receiving this monitor. What a disappointment it was. It just would not work - I tried moisture, water and even shaving my chest, but all to no avail. Needless to say I returned it for a refund.
