The Heart Rate Sensor Band is easy to put on and is comfortable to wear. The elastic band that holds it in place is adjustable over a good range of chest sizes. It appears that it would be possible to replace the elastic should it wear out or should a longer band be needed with elastic purchased at a sewing store and a little bit of stitching to fasten the attaching clips to the new elastic.
The Watch has a durable vinyl band, an easy to read LCD display and easy to press function buttons. It can function as a typical wrist watch and display the current time and date. The buttons and procedures for setting the watch and displaying HRM data are easy to understand and use. It does not have any additional watch features such as stopwatch, countdown timer or alarm.
A single button turns the heart rate monitor function on and off. The button must be held down to turn the HRM function off preventing accidentally turning the HRM off during an activity. Basic statistics are recorded and displayed for a single activity and are cleared each time the HRM function is turned on. The current heart rate is displayed during an activity. As well statistics for the duration of the activity, time within and outside of user set minimum and maximum heart rates, average heart rate during the activity, peak heart rate during the activity and estimated calories burned during the activity can be displayed. A one minute recovery period can also be timed and the drop in heart rate displayed.Read more ›
Original review (October 2012):
I purchased this Timex HRM two months ago. It was shipped to Canada without delay or extra cost by Mr. Watch. I do not use it for road races and running, so the GPS tracking feature (and lap tracking), which would have cost quite a bit more, was not important to me. I use this basic model to track my heart rate in the gym and during hockey games. I cannot use it in the pool. I have shared my results with my doctor, and he is satisfied that my level of conditioning offsets any elevated readings (for my age) that I get.
- Practically, the watch was fairly easy to set up; the Weight and Height features, which are used to calculate the calories burned, were a little hard to find, but I got everything done in less than an hour.
- I have observed that the chest strap (sensor) does "tick" like old watches did; the noise bothers me when I'm trying to sleep, so I do not keep it beside my bed; the watch itself does not make any noise.
- I found the clasps on the strap a bit difficult to figure out; it's very solid once you attach it, but the two ties on either side of the sensor are a bit tricky to get on and off; it involves twisting to get the clip in and out, and I fear that the small hook tab that goes underneath will break off.Read more ›
- Watch portion is comfortable and not overly bulky
- Quite easy to setup, very easy to use when basic info is entered.
- 'Start' a workout with one button press
- Saves information from your workout so you can log it afterwards
- Able to set high and low targets with an alarm to let you know if you are out of acceptable ranges (important for cardiac rehab patients)
- Chest strap is fairly comfortable and non-intrusive
- Appears to provide accurate readings (compared to manual pulse taking).
- No digital information transfer (for those looking to import data to a spreadsheet or program).
- Heart rate alarm tone is not very loud, might not be able to hear while wearing winter gear or bulky sports equipment(hockey).
Overall, this is a great monitor for the price (<$65 shipped) and provides a solid set of features without a lot of bells and whistles. The build quality of both the transmitter and receiver seems high and from what I can tell it is quite accurate.

It seems to work fine but has very limited features. There is no way to save excercise events. Once you clear the current heart rate figure it is erased. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer

A little bit hard to set up this watch. However, I find it very effective for workouts. The only downside it that it doesn't always seem to pick up my heart beat during more low... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Shanelle
