Heart Health Product Buying Guides

Heart Health Product Buying Guides

Since there are dozens of options, it might be difficult to choose a heart rate monitor that is both affordable and meets your needs. To make things simpler, we have made a heart health product buying guide with various factors you can weigh on to decide on the most ideal product that best matches your personal preferences and needs. Follow the post to find out more.

Easy Visibility of Reading

Most heart rate monitors, surprisingly, do not make the heart rate reading prominent on the screen. That is totally insane but true. Some heart rate monitors, which are often regarded as the best of breed, can still have a notoriously small and difficult-to-locate heart rate reading.

The Monitor Should Be User-Friendly

There are very few monitors that are deemed user-friendly, but there are still some that are at least usable. Do not simply go for popular name brands based on their reputation. Some need extensive experience to figure out how to use most of their models. They can have too many features, and it is hard to figure out how to establish your desired heart rate, which is the most crucial metric when using a heart rate monitor.

Function to Target Heart Rate Zone

Setting a heart rate target zone is the only additional function you actually need unless you are a triathlete or a really serious runner/cyclist. Therefore, it is important that the monitor be adjustable, allowing you to set alarms for both low and high heart rates. Generally speaking, that is all that one requires in a heart rate monitor.

Responsiveness of Monitor

When you are actively working out, the heart rate reading from some monitors may take a long time to appear on the screen. If you are running and you decide to pick up the pace, your heart rate can be 140 bpm one minute and 180 bpm the next. Ideally, the right monitor would keep tabs on your pulse all the time, rather than showing erratic spikes.

The Monitor Must Be Accurate

There is some doubt about the accuracy of heart rate monitors that do not require you to wear a chest strap. Instead, they may have you stop exercising and place your thumb on a metal button to take your pulse. Despite what the store clerk may tell you, we find that these heart rate monitors are fairly reliable. In our opinion, a chest strap monitor will provide the most accurate and responsive readings. Also, most cardio machines are compatible with heart rate monitors and their corresponding chest straps, so your pulse will be accurately recorded as you work out on the treadmill, elliptical, or stationary bike.

Comfort of Use

Because it will be worn on your skin and you will sweat while using it, a heart rate monitor should be as comfortable as possible. An uncomfortable chest strap is a miserable accessory to work with. The chest straps of more expensive monitors are pliable and soft, whereas the majority of monitors costing lesser are rigid and made of plastic which can be uncomfortable with prolonged use.
