by PamZColoradofromBad Strap/overestimates calorie burnI have used a heart rate monitor for years primarily as support for training but also to manage weight. I have always bought Polar but REI was out of the Polar model I wanted so I decided to try Timex. While the actual heart rate monitoring function seems slightly more reliable than Polar (more reliable in cold and windy conditions), I do not recommend this product. Within two months the strap broke off. I used duct tape to tape it back together but had to call Timex to order a replacement. This one lasted three months and broke off again. Also, the calorie tracking device is inaccurate. You can't enter in enough personal information to accurately track calories so it overstates. I know from years of experience that I can burn at most 650 calories per hour and that is at max heart rate. This HRM tells me I burn 800 in an hour. I wish.
