Nike watches are built to endure extreme outdoor conditions without missing a beat and they adhere to the company's founding mission statement: to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. And as Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman would add--if you have a body, you're an athlete. Ever since the fateful day in 1971 when University of Oregon track coach Bowerman poured rubber into his wife's waffle iron, technological innovation has been the spark that lights Nike's fire. The Waffle outsole transformed the running world and soon after Nike Air evolved Nike's revolutionary impact on sports. Beyond shoes--from watches and eyewear to carry gear and even socks--Nike is committed to giving athletes of every make, model and body style, who compete and recreate in ways never before imagined, the very best performance product. Here are just a few important dates in Nike's journey:
- American record-holder Steve Prefontaine becomes the first major track athlete to wear Nike brand shoes in 1973.
- At the 1976 Olympic Trials, Nike shoes are seen in abundance for the first time--worn by young, rising stars in both middle- and long-distance events.
- The first athlete to win an Olympic medal wearing Nike shoes is British runner, Steve Ovett in the 1980 Moscow Games
- The Just Do It advertising campaign began in 1988, and is now ensconced in the Americana exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum.

I also took the heart rate monitor for a spin in the pool, and the electronics survived just fine though the documentation warns not to press the watch buttons under water. The strap did have problems staying in place around my chest while swimming, so I probably won't use it in the water much in the future.
Overall, I like this heart rate monitor. It's pretty basic in terms of functionality compared to more costly models, but it looks good and does what it's designed to do. I found that I was more motivated to push myself harder in order to keep my heart rate up during my workouts. I don't mind that the watch can only show one value at a time (the time, chronometer, or heart rate), because with such a small display it would be difficult to see all the numbers if everything was crammed onto the tiny screen. Also, the range is limited to within a few feet of my body, but I think that's a good thing because I wouldn't want to pick up a neighbor's heart rate in a crowded gym environment.
The only feature I would like to see added is a backlight on the display, but that's a rather a minor complaint because I don't plan on using the watch as my primary time piece. It's sufficient for gym use, so I don't need extra features that regular watches offer. If you need advanced features like calorie count and min/max heart rate alerts, you may want to look at other models.
The included chest strap is comfortable and stays in place. I don't notice it and the bulge under your shirt is not conspicuous. This device has been a great tool for my running. I also use it as a watch everyday. It is very basic, and thus very easy to use. The user manual is small. You can find a PDF version online. This device has just 2 buttons and using it is very straight forward.
The chest strap can be opened so if the battery dies you may replace it yourself, but Nike says that the heart rate monitor itself needs to be sent to them if the battery dies. That sounds like an inconvenience so if that happens I will probably take it elsewhere. When the chest strap makes contact with your skin, it makes a ticking noise. You can only hear it in a quiet room (I don't hear it when I run) and other people will not notice unless they get right next to your chest and listen to it.
This device has a chronograph feature but it only displays seconds, not milliseconds. It has a 12 or 24 hour clock but no second display or date. It does not have an alarm and cannot beep or make noise. There is no light. It is very basic and simple.
Conclusion: Accurate, easy to use, comfortable, attractive. What else could you ask for. Well I would like a light and an alarm which explains the 4 star rating. Nevertheless, I still use this as my watch and heart rate monitor. It works well and has had no glitches so far (unlike my previous Reebok HRM). It was susrprisingly cheap and I recommend it.
However, the enclosed CD-ROM really shocked me with its heart rate calculator. The calculator uses the simple formula of 220 minus ones age to arrive at the recommended exercise heart rates; these are at 26 bpm to 59 bpm higher than newer studies recommend! Please enter "heart rate" on Wikipedia to see these newer formulae.
This issue is the only reason that I am entering my opinion here, as I regard it as potentially dangerous to many users of this monitor! So, use your better judgement and enjoy your workout!
If you're looking for a simple HRM that can also time your runs (or swims, etc.) and would like to keep spending to a minimum, this product will probably suit you well, as it does me.
One drawback, for those of you getting into some longer exercise times....When the timer on the watch gets above 1 hour, the watch no longer counts seconds (rounds to the nearest minute). I'm not sure if other watches do this, but for some reason that annoyed me.
The monitor works well, and provides a constant heartrate, there are no alarms or settings to alert you to highs or lows, or allow any kind of tracking. When you first put it on, it does take a few minutes for it to start giving accurate reads. I like the training cd that comes with it, and provides a calculator feature for determining your ideal ranges.
I wish it had a backlight function for viewing in the dark.
