I have Atrial Fibrillation and this monitor helps monitor my heart rate during workouts. It is quite simple to operate and I have had no difficulty using it. I wish it had the ability to save multiple workout times but at this price I'm happy with it.
An amazing thing is that everything is set and operated with just one button.
So far it is working fine and I'm happy with it.
If you're looking for just a heart rate monitor (it is waterproof and good for swimming) then this is for you. There aren't any bells and whistles at all. Straight forward, heart rate, time of exercise and that's it. The log only stores your last workouts data, you need to record it before you start another session.
This heart monitor is easy to set up and easy to use. It monitors your heart rate and will tell you the length of your workout, your average heart rate, and your highest heart rate. Sometimes you have to wet the electrodes on the chest band to get a signal--this is not a big deal to me. Many of the gym machines will pick up the monitor and show you heart rate which is cool. The only function I don't like is that it beeps to tell you that your heart rate is too high or too low. I do not know how to turn it off and it is embarrassing when I am at the gym but it is only for about 30 seconds. There are fancier models that let you download data into your computer but if you are looking for an easy to use heart rate monitor that is reliable, this may be the one.
