Resting, the heart rate monitor works well and seems to be very accurate. Whilst exercising in a fashion that gets your heart pumping, fahget about it! I've tried different pressure, wiping my fingers from moisture and holding them on the sensors for various amounts of time. Most of the time it won't give me a reading, even after 10 full seconds, rendering the device nearly useless (for what I wanted it for).
Ultimately, it's become a $20 stop watch that doesn't fit very well. Invest in something nicer if you truly need performance!
I wish people while writing review at least take some time to provide real facts about the item - so to fulfil this gap I’ll do it myself:
1. outside of white color I do like the design of the watch
2. buttons are easy to press and comfortable
3. getting Heart rate reading is not the challenge
4. the monitor has a nice feature compared to MIO - when you are in Heart Rate mode as far as you keep your fingers on the reading plates it will provide constant Heart Rate readings as long you want - compare to MIO where it only does it for 15 seconds and then stops
5. of course you can buy MIO Alpha model for 200 USD and it will give you Heart Rate readings without the need for your fingers to be on the reading metal plates, I personally just cannot justify the extra cost
6. sometimes it gets longer to get the reading - but as it says in the instruction you have to pay attention to the beeping heart symbol on the watch - when it’s beeping it means it’s getting your heart rate, when it’s solid and it’s not beeping that means you need to readjust your fingers or change the pressure from your fingers to the reading plate - if you do all that you should be able to see the beeping heart icon and the heart rate reading will come
7. Bowflex EZ Pro is also waterproof

too much expectation from $20 dollar watch.
don't buy it.
But, it requires a very deliberate press-and-hold to get into the heart monitor mode, otherwise it wants to go into the stopwatch mode instead (when you don't apply a firm press of the button for a sufficient time ~2-3 seconds). Then, once you're in the heart monitor mode, it sometimes doesn't register a heartbeat, times out and goes back to the time function. Unfortunately, I don't have confidence that a more expensive model is going to be better (based on other reviews I've read). Maybe the technology hasn't progressed enough for a viable strapless device.
