My first pulse watch,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beaurer Pm15 Heart Rate Monitor Watch - Grey, Medium (Sports)
I have been interested in fitness for a while now but never gave a second thought to why sometimes I feel dizzy or sick after an intense workout such as long distance or high speed running. After doing some research it turned out that it was all due to me pushing myself too much from time to time. The articles that I have read said that it is important to keep track of your pulse while training to avoid any unpleasant feelings during the workout. That is when I have decided to buy a pulse watch. I almost instantly excluded an option of buying a watch with a chest strap as that seemed quite uncomfortable to me. After searching for a while I came across this product and bought it without thinking about it too much.
Now about the product. The delivery was very prompt. The watch itself is thicker than I thought and looks a bit plasticky but good nevertheless. It does everything that it claims to and does it quite well. Although it sometimes doesn't want to read my pulse for some unknown reasons. Maybe it's because my wrist is a bit too hairy. In the instruction it is said that using a special gel will solve any problem of this sort. Anyway, when the watch does give a measurement it does it very precisely and I mean it! I would say that a standard deviation of the measurement would be +-1-2 beats/min which is nothing.
All in all, it is a nice product which has everything that I need but unfortunately I cannot give it 5 stars as the watch doesn't give pulse measurements every single time, especially when training. I guess I will need to buy that gel and then try its precision. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend this product. Though please bear in mind that it is my first product of this kind and I cannot compare it to any similar devices.
