Purchased this product about a month ago, and I was originally pleased with it. However, after a couple weeks of use and more focused exercise, I realized this watch doesn't perform. Here are my pros and cons Pros -nice look -easy to use
Cons -HR strap battey life has not lasted longer than 2 weeks. I've already replaced it twice -HR readings are all over the place. I'm in good tune with my body, and it has recorded my HR as high as 185-190 for extended periods of time. I've never been able to get my HR past 175, even during an EKG stress test -HR readings are very inconsisten with readings jumping up and down 10-20 bpm in a 10sec period
Essentially, the product is not reliable. I've used Polar in the past, and was happy to move away from their products with the this Timex. Looks like I'll be changing back.
