Difficult to use while exercising
on May 2, 2008
You need to hold two finger to the buttons on the top and bottom of the watch to get it to read your heart rate. This 1) is inconvenient when exercising, 2) does not give a constant heart rate for the duration of your work out, 3) can be very temperamental. With respect to 3), I had this watch read that my heart rate was 118 while I was sitting on the couch. I have also had to hold my fingers to the watch for as much as 30 seconds and still had it not give me a reading. It seems to me that it would be better to live with the chest strap of a normal heart rate monitor watch.
