Heart rate monitor,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Polar FT2 Heart Rate Monitor and Sports Watch (Sports)
My daughter has been using an earlier verson of a Polar monitor to assist her training regime and she suggested I get one to help me measure the performance of my heart during exercise. I have a pacemaker implant (in 1987) which helps off-set a slow/erratic heartbeat due to Sick Sinus Rhythm. However, when I exercise, my heart increases rapidly and my local hospital is trying to find out what can be done to fix this. I decided to buy the monitor to keep an eye on my heart rate when I'm exercising so that I don't overdo it. It was easy to set up and provides instant feedback. It gives maximum and average readings. It also enable you to set a maximum figure so that you get a warning if you exceed it. Now I can pass this data to my Doctor during my visits. Now I can exercise safely until I get an answer to my problem (hopefully). As usual the price was good and delivery speedy from Amazon.
