For me, there are two negatives:
1) Battery life: If you leave the display running, the battery runs out in less than 3 hours. I understand the battery will last longer if you set the display to "on demand". However, since I'm a bicyclist who regularly takes 50 mile + rides, this is not a very convenient option.
2) No memory. My cyclometer, which costs quite a bit less than the ePulse, keeps the stats for the last ride in memory. This does not. If the unit shuts down because the battery ran out, you're SOL.
I suspect that in 3 years or so, we'll be able to get a version that's cheaper and solves these problems neatly. But just be aware of them before you buy!
Update, a month later: Do NOT buy this item if your exercise sessions last more than 2 hours! The longest I've ever got the battery to keep the unit functioning is 2 hours and 30 minutes. Then it just shuts off and you lose all your data. Sure, you can set it for "on demand" display, but a 2 hour battery life is ridiculous, especially when the manual says you can get 6 hours.
If your workouts are less than 2 hours, this will work fine for you; otherwise, try something else.
I must say after 2 weeks of using this thing I absolutely love it. The biggest plus is definitely not having to wear one of those chest straps. I always found myself adjusting my chest strap while running. This thing fits on your arm pretty comfortably and its easy to use. The color display is nice and the buttons are big and easy to read and push. It took me awhile to enter in all my information the first time but after that it was very easy to use. Just turn it on wait for the heart rate light to go on and off you go.
For the review that says it isn't very accurate I disagree. Some variance is expected with any heart rate monitor out on the market now. My polar chest strap monitor constantly lost it's signal and I had to adjust it to get it to pick up again. So yes this thing is not perfect but I definitely think its the best heart rate monitor out there on the market now. Overall I find it very accurate and easy to use. I highly recommend this product.
The ePulse2 is a much more comfortable solution, and while all the velcro is a pain in the winter when you have to constantly pull your sleeve(s) over it to check it, when wearing short sleeves it's great. A bit worried about the oddly-placed tan-line that I'm sure to develop, but perhaps I can switch arms and positions on the arm to combat that.
Speaking of positions---I get good readings no matter where I put it on my lower arm, even my wrist. That is even better than I had hoped for, so kudos.
This HRM seems fairly accurate, although there are times on hikes when I don't feel that it's registering correctly (climbing a hill, obvious increase in effort, and it registers a mere 90-something instead of the near double HR that it FEELS like both with the effort and a pulse check using my fingers). However, MOST of the time it seems pretty close. I've double checked it at rest with the HRM on my blood pressure cuff, and also using the count message, and it seems correct at those times.
The battery life IS an issue, and I lost one workout before figuring out that I would HAVE to use demand mode for my longer bike rides or risk losing my data.Read more ›
Easy to use, probably accurate, fun
Short battery life (2-3 hours max), must plug the charger into a usb port of a computer to charge up (!!!)
I've had this hrm since March and at first it charged up via a plug. Then it stopped working. HeartRateMonitorsUSA did not want to give me my money back & suggested that I phone up the mfr of the item - Impact Sports & gave me an 888 number.
So I did. The person on the phone told me to use the USB port and plug in my HRM!! I thought that was odd and I don't like doing that, in other words, I have my laptop plugged in and this hrm must be plugged into it to charge up all night long in order for it to work!
The charge is 12 hours! I turn my computer off at night, but now I can't because this hrm must be plugged in! How inconvenient is that? Plus as stated before this hrm only works for 3 hours.
I'm stuck because I'm allergic to metal and can't wear a Polar. I have to wear this thing. I like this thing a lot, but it needs to be updated to address the battery issue and the plug into a computer via a USB port issue in order to work. It's pretty expensive too.
UPDATED REVIEW 4/25/11 - Talked to Impulse Sports & they are sending me a brand new one. They have also fixed the battery issue and the new battery is 6 hours, NOT THREE anymore! They also said that AMAZON has the latest ones, so be careful where you BUY IT, buy it from AMAZON.
POSITIVES are that this works great & that those of us with a NICKEL ALLERGY, or METAL ALLERGY can wear this without any issues. This is pretty much the same as the one in the EA Sports Active 2 package - which comes for free, only it's smaller and cooler looking. I LOVE THIS!!!!!Read more ›
