I suppose this is my own fault for not asking, but this watch does not have a built-in heart rate monitor. It comes with a chest strap. I use it to monitor my heart rate while I exercise, but it is not practical for me to wear the chest strap all the time. You do have to slightly moisten the sensors on the chest strap for it to accurately register your heart rate. As a side note, sometimes when I wake up in the morning, the display is off. I am not sure if this is intentional - some sort of battery saving feature. Overall, the watch works well. I ended up ordering a different watch with a built-in heart rate monitor as I need to check mine several times a day. If you are looking to monitor during exercise or do not mind wearing the chest strap, this would probably meet your needs!
