I first tried out the heart rate feature. Once the watch was strapped onto my left wrist, a brief (5 to 8 second) touch of the metal case with the index figure of my right hand repeatedly produced an accurate heart rate reading. The length of time that reading was displayed seemed about right. This feature works both in both "time of day" and "stopwatch" mode.
The other modes are: Countdown Timer, Activity, Alarm, and Second Time Zone. I haven't really tried those modes, so I can't report on how loud the alarm is in Alarm mode and if it would be a suitable backup for a travel alarm clock.
The stopwatch mode also works very well. It displays the elapsed time to the 1/100 of a second (at least up to one hour), which is more digits than I need. But the control of this feature is simple after a quick read of the enclosed manual.
The Indiglo(R) feature works better than in my other watches and thus was a pleasant surprise. This lights up just the digits rather than the whole display and so produces an easy-to-read image in the dark.
All in all, if your needs in a sports watch are fairly simple, you'll find this watch a very good value.
However, the solution I've found to this problem is simple. I will take the watch off, put it in my pocket or next to my water bottle, and when I want to record my heart rate I will place it on a dry area of my body and touch the stainless steel face. This works very well. Though it may be somewhat inconvenient, I find that it's very effective and only necessary during high intensity training.
I have not had any problems with the watch during moderate training (bicycling, walking, light jogging, etc.). As long as I'm not sweating profusely, the watch works very well while on my wrist. Excessive movement also makes it difficult to record your HR (i.e. while running), but briefly stopping, 5-8s, is plenty of time to record your heart rate and continue exercising.
Overall I am satisfied with the product. Price point and convenience were the two main reasons I purchased the watch and I've been very happy with it so far.
It was easy to set my 'Zones" on the watch and when I walk now and my heart feels like it is working I can quickly check where my BP and pulse are roughly at. I have worn the heart monitors with the straps and my friend has a very expensive H. monitor watch that is as accurate as this one.
Just remember, this is not 100% accurate and should not be expected to be. If you are just sitting around watching TV an want to check your BP this watch is NOT going to do it for you. When you are up and moving and working your heart this watch works well....
In summary, I bought the watch to help monitor my heart rate during workouts and during workouts the heart rate monitor "Lock" turns on preventing my ability to measure my heart rate.
Now I am looking for other options.
