This is a great product for the price. I was looking for HR watch that didn’t have a chest band and this one fit the bill. It works as advertised. I’ve had it for about a week and have no major complaints. I’ve compared HRs that the watch showed and other cardio equipment at the gym like elliptical trainers and the HR seems to be within a few HR of each other. I like the calorie counter feature but noticed that you have to do several readings during the day to get an accurate estimation, and remember, it’s only an estimate. I generally take a HR every 30 mins when lifting weights, 15 when running and about every two hours when not performing any physical activity. This gave me a reasonable estimation. When you don’t take many readings, it will base the calories burned on the few times a reading is taken. I saw a 1500 cal difference, so take plenty of readings. I wish the manufacturer actually incorporated a passive HR reading mode when the cal. Counter feature is running. Also, I noticed that sometimes you need to press the steel plate for a few seconds after it takes the first reading for the HR to stabilize. I only saw this when I was doing cardio. Not a big problem. Overall, I give it a great rating.
