Now the watch band. I read several complaints about the band being too thin. I found the band to be just right and not thin at all, but again, this may be another individual matter of preference. I was actually happy when I opened the box and took the watch out as the band was the first thing I checked because of the many negative reviews I read about it. The band also snaps and locks into place under the fastener and remains secured.
All in all, I am very pleased. I will suggest reading the instructions to get the most out of this watch/heart rate monitor as there are so many features that it has. Even though you can put it on your wrist as soon as you pull it out of the box, the heart rate monitor features should be learned first to benefit from it and use it to its full potential. I hope this review helps someone decide if this watch is right for them. I highly recommend it and would certainly buy the same one again.
1) The buttons are reasonably easy to learn to use. As with most such items, there are few buttons. So they are multi function. That's not terribly intuitive. You need to read the instructions to figure them out. I did read the instructions and I still have to fiddle around with them from time to time. But it is far from the most confusing piece of gear I've ever had to puzzle out.
2) It captures heart rate quickly and accurately.
3) The booklet that it comes with describes two simple exercise tests that you can do in your own home with the HRM on to determine your max heart rate It only takes a few minutes. After that, you can have the HRM calculate your zones. It also allows you to define custom zones if you want to.
4) Here's where we start getting to the cool stuff... you can select a target heart rate zone before you start exercise. The HRM will measure the full duration of the exercise AND the amount of that time you spent in your target zone. This is a really cool feature to help you determine if you are exercising at the level you want to.
5) It calculates calories. As with most such HRMs, I think it is generous in its calculation to make you feel good about yourself. This isn't a failure of this one product... it is a feature of ALL of them.
6) And another cool feature... you can select whether you display actual heart rate or percent of max heart rate. So if you have trouble remembering the heart rate zone boundaries (let's see, 92 to 110, 110 to 128, 128 to 146, and so on...) you can just just ride the percentages (oh this is easy! 50% to 60%, 60% to 70%, 70% to 80%, and so on...)
7) And yet another cool feature... one of the best ways to take a quick snapshot of your fitness is how much your heart rate drops over a fixed time interval after you stop exercising. This is called initial recovery. The more fit you are, the larger the drop in heart rate. This HRM will automatically measure your initial recovery when you press the stop button. You can select either a one minute interval or a two minute interval. As you become more fit, you will see a greater drop in your heart rate over that first one (or two) minutes after you stop exercising. I had always done this math in my head. It is MUCH easier to have the HRM do that for you while you are still struggling to bring your blood oxygen level up to where you can remember your own name (much less remembering how to do math!).
I strongly recommend this product. It is reliable. Relatively easy to use. Has great features. Get one.
So this Timex T5H911 does the job much better because it comes with a heart rate signal detector that you strap around your chest and it sends your heart beat rate signal to your Timex T5H911 wirelessly, and appears very accurate with a quick response. You'll find out exactly how much your own heart rate lags behind your changes of pace too. Mine is like a 25 to 30 second lag to catch up to my change of workout pace, likely because I'm 77 years old but at least I'm still moving. Anyway the watch also provides the date, time, alarm and other features you might like for more advanced aerobic training.
