What better way to keep watch of one's heart rate then to have it in a watch form. My husband suffers with high blood pressure and must participate in physical training and PT tests as he is serving in the USARMY. In order to put my mind at rest, I purchased this watch in order to monitor his heart rate during periods of exercise. This has been an excellent way to monitor his rates and provide information to his physician.
This watch is sized for both men and women. It is unique as it is a watch form which you wear on your wrist. The monitor has easily accessible function buttons, a durable resin case, and a comfortable resin wrist strap. One is able to continuously trak your heart rate during exercise as well as your pre-set target heart rate zones. A workout review recalls activity time and average/peak heart rates.
The display on the monitor watch shows the month, date, and day of each of your activities. They are big and readable even in dim light. If you need to read it at night one can do this due to the Timex Indiglo technology which lights up the monitor in the dark.It is water resistent up to thirty meters and runs up to two years on each battery. There is also an alarm which notifies you when you are out of your heart rate zone.
This heart rate monitor gives one an accurate reading immediately and continues to do so as ones heart rate changes during various activities. It records your time in the zone that you can set. There is also a recovery time feature that measures how many BPR's you have and how much your heart rate drops in one minute. The sensor belt can also work with heart rate displays on most treadmills and other excercise equipment.
We have been very pleased with this monitor. Timex is a very reliable company which has been around for many years. They offer quality products at affordable products and this monitor is a great example. If we need a new monitor, we will definitely choose Times.
