This is a Timex. Timex makes solid watches, always has, always will. I was in the market for a basic HRM so I picked this one up as it has the basic features I needed - namely, the heart rate monitor. The heart rate monitor works fantastic - when you are sitting at your house in the air conditioning! The second you go out and start excercising (read: sweating) the HRM function shorts out and locks itself out making it virtually useless during sport. Out of six workouts I think I've gotten it to work twice. Unfortunately I need an HRM that is more useful than 33% of the time. I'm not sure if it is the mechanism that is the issue or just the design but if you are looking for an HRM for sport, I would keep looking.

I was looking for a waterproof watch for a Christmas gift for my active boyfriend. He enjoys all sorts of sports, including basketball, running and kayaking. I was happy with what was pictured and the features that were described, but even more pleased when I received the watch. The features are simple to figure out and the heart-rate monitor is extremely easy to use. My boyfriend has been very happy with his gift.

As a watch, it is full functioned and comparable to other Timex watches of a similar digital style. But the HRM readings are all over the map. The first time you use is in any session where you want an HRM reading it's OK. But then if you try it again to re-check or confirm the HRM readings, the results make no sense. The instructions offer no help with this issue either.
SUGGESTION: If you really want or need the HRM function, go with a model that has a separate HRM sensor.
