After reading a few reviews, I was a little worried about communication between the HRM and the sensor (I'm female, with ... uh ... assets) but the strap fits just fine under the bust and I have yet to experience any communication issues. It definitely helps to moisten the contacts, but as that's advised in the instructions I'd say it should be a given if the HRM doesn't immediately pick up the signal.
Great to have the calorie burn listed in the review function!
I'm not a huge fan of pink so it's nice to see a unisex model that nevertheless doesn't look bulky on my arm. I've always had Timex/Ironman watches anyway so I figured I was safe to stay with the same brand and I was not disappointed.
Basically, if you're looking for a less-pricey-but-still-good HRM with a lot of functions and decent durability, this is your best bet!
One point before you decide to buy a standalone HRM like this, if you own an iPhone there are programs and sensors that connect to the iPhone by bluetooth that monitor heart rate, and there may be some for Android, so those may be a better solution, I don't know. My guess such systems will kill products like this though their sensors are likely to cost more that this whole product, only the apps may be better. But for my purpose this was all I needed and was low cost.
Hope that helps.
I am 6'2" 280 lbs. with a 50" chest. There is plenty more length in the chest strap, my guess is a 400 lb person could wear this!
Glad I got this. I was exercising without knowledge of my heart rate, and would be gassed in ten minutes. Now I stay in 70-80% of maximum and have no problem doing 30 minutes twice a day! The weight is coming off!
My only doubt is with the accuracy of the unit. It states nearly 700 calories burned while doing T25 Alpha workouts and over 1,000 for P90X, one hour of road biking (13-16 mph) or 45 minutes of mountain biking (8-10 mph). I also use it on a kickboxing workout and it showed 1,200 calories burned in 45 minutes. These numbers seem a bit higher for me, however I have no other method to confirm/deny the readings at this time. And then again, it might be right since I'm on the heavy side (235 lbs, 39yrs), but I will like to confirm it with an alternate method/device before giving it 5 stars. Until then and maybe 35 pound lighter...
What I am a little disappointed with is how easily the chest strap looses its connection. For future users, it helps to wet your skin opposed to the individual sensors. This helps but does not resolve the problem completely.
