Summary: I got the product quickly and on time. It was as advertised, but I am having a hard time getting it to register accurately on workouts. On a slow workout it does well, but doing surges on a treadmill, it doesn't register the increased pulse rate according to the register on the treadmill itself. The more severe the workout, the greater difference between the two readings.
Summary: Great fitness watch, I used it several times already and it is very accurate, displays the time, heart rate, and calories burned in real time and in the end of every sports practice also saves all my training exercises for future reference. I enjoyed this watch very much and highly recommend for all people who exercise regularly to buy it.
Summary: I wanted something simple to monitor my heart rate while working out. Tells you your heart rate and calories burned based on the information you enter but I'm not sure how accurate the calories burned are (I believe there's a bit more info required for that...). Regardless, it's simple to use and works great for the purposes of a HR monitor. Syncs with HR monitors on machines at the gym so you don't necessarily have to wear your watch at the gym.
An excellent device to monitor heart rate while walking/jogging

Summary: I use FT4 to enable me to monitor heart rate while walking. It 'pushes' me to get heart rate up to a minimum to assure that my walking is good cardio exercise. The FT4 has a very sophisticated internal algorithm which displays a recommended 'Training Zone' of Lower and Upper Heart Beat Rates. On first-time start up, user enters DOB, Height, Weight, and Max Heart rate. When a training session is started, FT4 can be set to display 'Training Zone' information.
Summary: I started out wearing a wrist heart monitor, but never felt like I was getting a true reading of the workout I had done. Being a male, I wasn't keen on the idea of wearing a strap around my chest. Thought that I would notice it and that it would bother me. Putting it on is no easy task for me, but I am managing, and I don't really notice it after that. I am able to check all my stats by pressing the buttons and feel confident that they are accurate.
