It features a chest strap heart rate monitor, easily accessible function buttons, durable resin case, and comfortable resin strap with a stylish tapered profile. For integrating heart rate monitoring into your training, this watch enables you to track your avareage heart rate and pre-set target heart rate zones with data for time spent within that zone and alarms. It can also display data for calories burned and offers a recovery timer that measures your heart rate after a timed recovery during or after your workout. Sport timing features include:

The Indiglo night-light uniformly lights the surface of the watch dial using patented blue electroluminescent lighting technology. It uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, enabling your watch battery to last longer. The Night Mode feature allows you to illuminate the Indiglo night-light for 3 seconds with any button press, regardless of the mode or function. The watch is water resistant to 50 meters (165 feet)--suitable for swimming but not for diving. All Timex heart rate monitor sensors have batteries that can be replaced by consumers without requiring them to be returned to the manufacturer.

I sometimes get some odd readings when I first lay down (doing sit ups or the like). But it typically settles down and then continues to work perfectly while I am doing crunches.
There are some negatives, though. The chest strap and monitor are a little uncomfortable and can chafe during intense, mixed workouts. The bulkiest part of the chest strap sits right over your sternum. If you are using weight machines that seat against your chest (rowing machines), then the monitor can be uncomfortable when pressed against the chest rest. Figuring out all the various features of the watch can also be a little daunting. The various watch functions will not be intuitive to people that have not owned Timex sport watches. However, I doubt that the other products out there are dramatically better. I took off one star, but these issues were relatively minor in my mind.
Basically, all I wanted was to push the heart rate button and go. The system worked and I am happy. I like that the other functions are there. I used the Chronograph on a run today and it worked fine. I find that if I go with the Consumer's Magazines top rated products that I am almost always happy and this is the case with this heart rate monitor. It was a steal at $60 IMO.
Postscript: I have noted a few complaints about the heart rate monitor failing in the first couple of months. It seems that the battery died on my chest strap at about that interval. I found that you can buy these watch batteries pretty cheaply on Amazon. That is not the worst thing in the world. I have also noticed that the elastic chest strap seems to shrink some with cycles of cleaning. I have a 42" chest and I have extended the chest strap almost at the end. This could be an issue for a bigger guy. Otherwise, it is doing the job well, day in and day out. The relatively small watch size is a bonus for me. I am not a fan of bulky watches.
I've been using it for about 2 weeks during my cardio workouts and my experience with it has been totally positive and opposite of that first time with it. It gives very stable readings and is very responsive when I increase or decrease my workout intensity. The sensor is pretty comfortable to wear and light weight and I have never had any issues with it.
The bottom line is if you are looking for just a heart rate monitor and don't need any other bells and whistles I would highly recommend this one. The price is very reasonable and it works very well.
So after about 2.5 years, it still works--but the watch band is broken. And after numerous Internet searches, in-store visits at retailers recommended by Timex, and of course the Timex website, I have not been able to find a replacement. There doesn't even appear to be a replacement for the newer model, which might be compatible. Before purchasing, I read several reviews indicating that the user could replace the batteries, which was a big selling point for me. Unfortunately, I don't remember reading any complaints about replacing the band . . . alas.
As much as I enjoyed this HRM system, I cannot recommend it. The watch band will break, invariably, and a replacement is near impossible to find.
I would advise that for men this DRHM may not be right for you as it is a rather small, great for women, especially women like me with tiny wrists.
