In order to get this kit working you need a code, unfortunately there is NO SUPPORT, no one responds to anything so I presently have an item which does not work. It has now been about 4 working days, still no response to numerous e-mails
The MZ-3 heart rate monitor is overpriced for what it is, although my David Lloyd gym offered it for £60 to aid the take-up of its Blaze classes. It's basically old technology linked up to the flashy Myzone server that tries to incentivise you to the death. Very few are likely to make it to the 'hall of fame'. Many will find the chest strap too constricting and too much of a faff. Still, one advantage of the MZ-3's ancient tech is that the battery lasts months between charges. Less good is the feeble audible indication that the MZ-3 has picked up one's heart beat. Even worse is the unreliable uploading of data from the MZ-3 to the Myzone server when one's in the gym and the problem the MZ-3 seems to have pairing with Android phones. If Myzone had incorporated a heart-rate monitor in their new MZ-60 watch, they could have ditched the MZ-3 altogether and we'd all be a lot happier.
I like all aspects this heart monitor and it has made me set goals I would of never thought achievable before.....being mid 50 it is such a great tool to track your capabilities, resting pace etc... brought through my gym and thinking of buying more for my fitness crazy family although slightly put of by some previous reviews, gladly more positives than negatives.
Had bely for 3 weeks then won't hold charge so useless. Customer service failed slow to respond, to third e-mail. Have to have this make as used by a gym I'm a member of so no choice sadly. Had a Polar H10 before and was much better. Often switches on and off and beeps to tell you. Very frustrating when in the middle of a work out. If you don't have top have this HR monitor go for a different brand
I bought this belt through a David Lloyd gym to take up their blaze classes, never have a used a tracking device like this! So so so amazing! I'm unsure of to why there are comments saying it's old fashioned tech as I think it's very advanced. There are two pads which make contact to your chest, you input your stats through the myzone app, and it will give you a live feed of your workout. Your heart rate, how many calories being burned, and what percentage of effort you are giving in relation to your bodies stats. It lets me connect with all the other members of my gym, maybe 100 or so other users that I can compare exercise, classes and results with. This has pushed me more than any PT has previously! Makes you competative and push that extra bit further. Would definitly recommend
I purchased this my zone belt from my gym, I've been using it for 2 months now so I feel I'm able to leave quite a genuine and accurate review. I have to say it is amazing it's taken my fitness to a new level, the way it works it encourages you to set targets and achieve your goals. It counts your calories burnt during exercise it encourages you to get in your fat burning zone, it works out where you need to be to burn the most amount of calories it keeps your heart rate in check and it's much much better than one of those fitness watches that I can honestly say if you want to work out if you want to change the way you work out this is the way to go. I've lost 2 stones in 2 months I'm raving on because I know how hard it is to achieve your goals and I just want to help others please try this you'll love it but you do have to work hard and is not a magic tool you have to put the working.
Been using myZone for one month now and I’ve never been more motivated to keep smashing gym sessions, tracking my progress everyday and gaining the “MEPS” and getting a little competitive but that’s what I need to push even further!! One of the best things that’s happened to my fitness performance and progress is having the MyZone belt !
Do not buy this. I had one, it never worked, it doesn't pickup your heart rate which means it rarely activates/turns on. 3 months of trying to get it to work and contacting support and they finally sent a replacement. Which doesn't work either. Tested in the gym on other people and with the gym instructors and they won't work for anyone. Even worse is when you contact support half way through the conversation they just stop replying and completely ignore you.
Myzone is awesome I have fitbit also never use it no more. It's so accurate I can track my workout live so I'm getting the best results. I can challenge my work mates. Create and be in big group challenges. I love my cardio exercise I'll skip gym if I'm not wearing my myzone belt
