2.0 out of 5 stars Great for monitoring your workouts when it works!!, 6 April 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beaurer Pm15 Heart Rate Monitor Watch - Grey, Medium (Sports)
Bought these for the Insanity Workout (Insanity: The Ultimate Cardio Workout and Fitness DVD Programme.) where you need to keep an eye on your maximum heart rate so you don't harm yourself.

The PM 16 is only suitable for people with smaller wrists. It is sized as a "ladies" watch so if you have large wrists it will be too small. The width of the body of the watch is about 35mm. The depth is about 14mm. The flat section that sits on your wrist is about 45mm. Maximum wrist circumference is about 19cm.

The PM 15 is sized as a "man's" watch so if you have small wrists it may be too big. The width of the body of the watch is about 40mm. The depth is about 16mm. The flat section that sits on your wrist is about 50mm. Maximum wrist circumference is about 21cm.

Setting up is very easy: follow the instructions in the box to set your sex and age and the watch will automatically set your maximum safe heart rate and a minimum heart rate for an effective workout. You can change these limits manually if you choose.

In use: Works well once you have got a bit of a sweat up. You need to press a button under the clock face and hold it for about five seconds to get a reading so may not be suitable for people who don't want to stop exercising to check their rate.

It doesn't work terribly well on dry skin or very hairy wrists until you are sweating - you can use it, however, but smearing a thin coating of saliva on the back of the watch (or using using some conductive gel according to the manual). This is why I have not given it 5 stars.

Overall: good enough for the price but would be better if it was able to take your heart rate all the time.

****UPDATE - Important****
Unfortunately the watch failed after about 2 months and would no longer register a heart rate. This is not an isolated event judging by other reviews. I have replaced it with an alternative watch and chest strap for continuous monitoring.

I am afraid I can no longer recommend this item.
