A basic watch to start your journey into HRMs
on 14 May 2011
Although the watch is easy to operate and the number of items it measures it pretty good, it lacks memory storage capacity. It only records 10 laps times which, for any decent interval training session means that you are not recording the final parts of your session and it does not record heart rate only giving the heart rate at the time the athlete remembers to look at the watch. Thus heart rate analysis for max and average after a session is not possible and there is no split/lap vs heart rate measuring function.
The stop watch figures are clear and easily read whilst the HR monitor watch figures are OK at hour and minute level whilst the seconds need an eagle eye and some deciphering.
This is a reasonable watch for people just starting out using heart rate monitors and yet, once you realise you want more than just thee basics this watch falls short.
