    Horribly Inconsistent

  • I purchased this watch to help train for a sprint triathlon. The biggest waste of money ever! When I could get the watch to communicate with the heart rate strap (which was rare), I would fluctuate from 260/270 which would put me into cardiac arrest down to 40 at which I wouldn't be able to move without passing out. Very rarely did I get what seemed to be an accurate read. I lost my watch at the gym or else I would have returned it and demanded a full refund.

    Inconsistent Performance

  • I love the design of the receiver/watch part of the HRM; however it works sporadically. I'll go a few days with no problems with it and then I can't get a read on it for a few days. If I do get a read it's completely inaccurate (ie; 30 bpm or 260 bpm) It's performance is completely in consistent making it an unreliable tool. I am very disappointed with this product.

    Title

  • I love the watch but constantly have problems with it showing HR in brackets. Not communicating with strap ? Almost not worth wearing at all.

    great watch!!

  • i love this watch, i had to replace my polar 11 which i love very much, but i went this time with an economical watch with a lot of the same features. i'm just a (starter)runner, and love time weight lifter and step aerobics trainer and this watch is great for both. i've only had it a week but so far so good.

    great watch and monitor!

  • i've had no problems with Monitor not picking up HR; it works perfectly, everytime - running, biking, swimming. it is easy to use, easy to set, easy to review. the only con is that it doesn't store more than one workout..but, that is not what it's designed to do..so, it's not really a con.

    Not too impressed

  • I received this as a gift August 2010. It has worked perfectly until December. Now it keeps an irregular heart rate and will not display the chrono when heart rate is taken. Checked the battery per site recommendations and that is not the issue. We'll see how customer service handle's this before I decide to recommend it or not, so far a big NOT!

    Hardly ever works

  • I got this one for my birthday. It worked great at first. But soon got hard to measure heart rate. Then it got worse, sparatic all over the place. It does not measure heart rate correctly.

    Good Basic Watch/HRM - Not a Calorie Counter

  • I've owned many basic Ironman watches, but I bought this watch for the HRM feature. The watch works fine. HRM works fine. Just a good basic HRM if you don't want to break the bank. It is not an accurate calorie counter though -- it always shows at least double the amount of calories burned as compared to my (highly accurate) BodyBugg. So if you want a simple HRM and fashionable sports watch, this is a good buy. But don't buy it if you're looking for an accurate calorie count.

    Okay HRM, Horrible calorie counter

  • I bought this heart rate monitor because I wanted to watch my heart rate, but I also wanted to see how many calories I burn during my workouts. The actual heart rate monitor itself is good, however, if you are buying this for calorie count.. do not even bother. The calorie count is VERY inaccurate. It gives readouts of double, and sometimes triple the amount of calories that should have been burnt. I bought a TIMEX heart rate monitor because it's a name I'm familiar with and have purchased in the past...now I'm wishing I would have purchased a Polar HRM.

    I would recommend other Timex items, but not this particular heart rate monitor

    timex heart rate monitor

  • I recently purchased this heart rate monitor. I had the same problems as a few others, i.e. it did not detect my heart rate until 10 mins. into a run; it showed sporatic heart rate, ie. 110-134 jump in seconds. How do I return it? thankyou.

    HRM Issues

  • HRM worked fine at first, now it's hit or miss. Battery is not the issue.

    great triathlon trainer

  • I read the reviews on this site after I had purchased this HR monitor - I'm glad I had already bought it, or I might not have. I wonder if the reviewers who have not had consistent performance might not have wet the sensors before applying the chest strap. I have not had any problems in about two months of training so far. I wore the watch and strap for a swim workout when I was practicing the first transition, and I did not expect the HR to transmit during the swim based on the instruction manual, but it worked very well. I am using most of the features and find it to be a great training tool, at a lower cost than a similarly featured Polar product.

    Not impressed

  • Since two stars is indicated to mean "okay," I'll go with that. I haven't had technical difficulties after about 10 months of use. I am careful to rinse the chest strap and dry it after each use, which, in my experience with HR monitors, helps. But this monitor is very limited in its features, and it's estimated calorie counts seem ridiculously high.

    It really has no workout memory storage, so you have to log each workout yourself somewhere before beginning your next workout or you'll lose the data. If you plan on doing multiple activities at the gym that you want to log, you'd better carry a notebook with you.

    The strap signal is not read by any of the cardio equipment at my gym, unlike my old Polar HR monitor.

    As I mentioned, the estimated calories burned seems way off -- it tells me I'm burning 450 calories by walking 30 minutes on a treadmill (albeit at a 4 to 5% incline, but still). So, really, the only data it gives me that is believable is my heart rate at any given moment and the time. Not much for the price.

    Solving HRM Sensor not working

  • My heart rate monitor stopped and my batteries were good. I solved the problem by using a pin to push down the silver reset pin on the back of the HRM sensor. To the left of the pin you can see the words reset. I could not find any mention of this reset in any of the manuals and documentation Hopes this helps people. My model is T5K718F5.
