Great Heart Rate Monitor

William Brockfield, amazon.com
28 January 2012
  • Summary: This is a great device for monitoring your heart rate during exercise workouts. Chest strap is a little sensitive, and takes practice getting it in the right spot--or else it won't send accurate measurements to the watch. I work out on a spin bike in the mornings, and usually in low light. The Indiglo backlight is great, but only comes on for approximately 2 seconds. I wish it stayed on longer!

So easy and simple

EnduranceBeginner, amazon.com
23 January 2012
  • Summary: If you want a device that just gives you your heart rate and nothing else...this is the item for you. All you do is put the strap on, and hit the button on your watch and whalla! You have your heart rate. So easy and simple to use. I love it!! There are no confusing instructions, and there are not 10 diferent modes and settings. This item will tell you the time, or your heart rate. Its as simple as a push of the button. GREAT item!!!

Basic functions and a real flaw

Eric A. Jewett, amazon.com
23 January 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for a basic heart monitor/stopwatch, having never had one before. Once I got the hang of the chest strap and transmitter, things generally go as expected - you get elapsed time, average heart rate and max heart rate. I didn't need more. The one real kicker is that the button below the display turns the record function on and off AND tells it to display the previous workout.

Embarrassing gift

Baby Sneaks, amazon.com
17 January 2012
  • Summary: I gave this as a Christmas gift to a friend who had just taken up running. It worked twice (and she was pretty pumped about it), and then died. The culprit? The battery in the chest band was dead. The user can buy a battery for the band and replace it, but I know she spent a fair amount of time on the phone with Timex trying to get a new band or battery without having to spend money herself on this instantly faulty product.

Stopped working after a year.

Jan Sershen "Hyjanks", amazon.com
13 January 2012
  • Summary: This thing worked perfectly for the first year. It's the only heart rate monitor I've ever had that would work while biking into a wind (I'm sure those who have used heart rate monitors are familiar with this phenomenon). Now, after several battery changes in the watch and the chest strap, the monitor is apparently not receiving the signal. The watch works fine as a watch, but not as a monitor.

Wouldn't buy this again....

A. Harris, amazon.com
5 January 2012
  • Summary: The main problem with this heart rate monitor is that it takes a long time to start, usually at least 10 minutes into a workout. I would not recommend it.

Timex monitor purchased from Amazon.com

rowerlonglake, amazon.com
4 January 2012
  • Summary: We had a very hard time to get the monitor to start to work and each time we use it we had to fiddle with its positioning to get the monitor to record the heart rate. Since we did not want to spend a lot of money on a monitor, this seemed the perfect choice. I did expect it to be easier to operate but time will tell on its function.

Excellent Value

Gary, amazon.com
3 January 2012
  • Summary: For the price I paid in the low $30's this is a great heart rate monitor. Works great, looks good, easy to read and gives you all the info you need, i.e. heart rate then at the end you can get total workout time, average heart rate and max heart rate. Also looks good to wear as a regular watch. So easy to use just press one button!

Truly the best and easiest

20 December 2011
  • Summary: I have the heart monitor and it is perfect. I use it to monitor fat burning windows, and it is exactly the same measurement as the unit attached to the treadmill

Better than my Polar

S. Rolf, amazon.com
17 December 2011
  • Summary: I just got this after my last Polar died. Things I love about this watch: It was cheap! The indiglo feature; you don't have to hold, just push and it stays lit for about 2-3 seconds. The chest strap is very comfortable, it is contoured, like a person's body, not flat like the Polar strap I had. You can change the battery in the chest strap vs. having to buy a new strap when the battery dies. Very simple and easy to use.
