Before testing this, I read some reviews of Omron's previous model. Some of the complaints on that item look like they persist here, including what is likely a very hard to change battery in the watch (the manual suggests having a jeweler change it). The belt battery looks like it'd be easy to change. My batteries were likely pretty fresh, as this is a new model and ostensibly shouldn't have been sitting on the shelf long, so I haven't had any trouble with signatures of low batteries yet. I've used the monitor for at least half a dozen exercise sessions now.
The listed operating environment ranges are 32 to 104°F and 30 to 85% relative humidity, which should, in theory, mean that using this outdoors in Houston wouldn't be allowed for much of the summer, but at the same time, the belt comes off me after an exercise session soaking wet, and the watch is rated for shallow water swimming and the belt is rated for splashes, so who knows.
The smallest watch band hole is at 6", which wouldn't accommodate smaller women, though extra holes could always be punched.
There's an icon on the watch face that can be toggled on and off, a pair of wavy lines at the bottom left, and it's shown on the description of the LCD in the manual, but it's not labeled, and its meaning or function is not decribed anywhere.
As is true of all heart rate monitors, you have to be careful not to let any fabric get under the sensor on the chest, or the heart rate reading will cease.Read more ›
I have had two problems with this, the less significant being the discomfort of the heart rate band. I compared it to my Polar heart rate straps to see what the difference is. The Omron is heavier and bigger in the center and the band itself is less flexible. The latch on the side is not as easy to close as the Polar. This one has a triangle shape that is harder to close than the Polar because you have to both seat it and then click it in place. I'm not sure why all of the security as I have never had one fall off before. The biggest part for me though, is that because of its inflexibility, it often moves around and doesn't register any heartbeat. The other problem caused by this is that I am less likely to leave it on when I am not in the gym; therefore not collecting numbers while I am out on my bike or walking the dog.
The other, more significant problem is the delay in heart rate numbers. I tested this out against three or four machines in my gym that I know to be absolutely correct tested against my Polar, which was tested with the help of a nurse friend who was worried because of my sometimes too fast heart rate. I need to have faster information than this one provides. The delay on my unit is between 5-20 seconds. This is probably not an issue for most people who are just looking for general numbers.
Okay, and there's a third problem that matters more to me than probably to others. You can not use this under water. My Polar can be worn in the swimming pool while I am doing laps.Read more ›
