Is the heart rate monitor chest strap also water resistant? Can I wear both while swimming?
I love this heart rate monitor! This was my first HRM, and there's nothing intimidating about it. It's simple to program and use. Great choice for a beginner, and functional enough for someone more experienced. I've used it several times a week for multiple months, and I have never had a problem. It's so useful to have the realtime information to know when to slow down or intensify my workout. Great value!...

Great Product, very comfortable and accurate readingsRead More
In our move to Florida the heart monitor for our bike was lost. This Timex transmits information perfectly to the display panel on the bike. Chest strap is comfortable.Read More
I purchased this for my wife and it wouldn't read her pulse, it would read my pulse. If your wife has big breasts don't buy this, you can't move the chest strap high enough.Read More
Would not consistently display heart rate during exercise. Only after you stopped.would it continue to flash.Read More
This heart rate monitor has become a key factor in my workouts. The Timex model is easy to use, provides great information to you at the press of a button and is not bulky by any means. I have been using this montior for about five months and absolutely love it. Highly recommend if looking for an easy to use montior at a decent price. Ranked #1 by consumer reports as well....Read More
Great way to monitor and keep record of workouts. Easy to use and program.Read More
I was not disappointed in any way. This is a solid watch and has been easy to use while being reliable. I bought two, one for my wife and one for myself. Figuring out how to use it took 20 minutes. I'm training for my first 10 mile race and this has added another dimension to my training and it also makes it really fun. Shipping was faster than expected (I chose the cheapest shipping method). No complaints at all. Good job Timex and Overstock!Read More
I've had this heart rate monitor for about a month and I have used it nearly every day. The watch and strap are comfortable, and the watch is easy to use. However, the calories burned calculation is seriously inflated. I have to use my average heart rate and plus it into an online calculator and the actual calories burned are about 3-10x less than the watch calculates. So, it works, sort of.Read More
I bought this on with the chest strap because all the ones without the chest strap dont work on hairy people. I tried 3 of them. i thought the stap was foing to be a hassle, but really its not and it works perfectly. all the time during the workout you can look and see the active pulse rate. Plus at the end you can track time duration, time in zone, average, calories burned..Read More
