How accurate is the calorie counter?
The instructions are not very clear in how to start the heart rate function. Also when starting out it is almost always neccesary to wet the sensors on the chest strap unless humidity is high. Once you have figured out how to operate the watch it works great and for the price is a great value....

There are no instructions in the box or online. Luckily the chest strap works with the equipment at the gym so it is not a complete lossRead More

The watch and moitor seem to work well. The functions keys are not as user friendly as some of the other HR monitors I have used. For the money it seems to do the job.Read More
A little high tech for me, but I'm working it out.Read More
This watch was great quality for the price. The only down side was that it is not the most comforable but compared to other bands it is the same.Read More
I bought this and thought it was okay for a few months. But it died after 2 and a half months. I replaced the battery and it still doesn't work. Very disappointed. Even if I got a bad product - and others are good- the cons of this item were that you couldn't personalize it to your height/weight, so calories burned were probably not true to my size. It always said I burned much higher (100-300 calories) than my other HRM indicated.... I figured it must be set for an average sized man. I am a 135lb woman.Read More
This low priced heart rate monitor is overly complex to program and it is slow and inaccurate in measuring heart rate. Exercise movements cause the chest strap to stop working and it takes much too long to report changes in readings. Calorie function does not always engage and height, weight and BMI is not recorded. I'm sorry that I bought this model and wish I had opted for quality rather than economy. If I had purchased this at a store, I would definitely returned it.Read More
This is the first time I've written a review, and it's because of one simple thing. I order the above Heart rate monitor, and upon receiving several days ago I am now trying to get to a blinking low battery replaced. Apparently you must take the watch to a jeweler to get the battery replaced. I called several othe store and jewelers and no one will touch the watch. So I have not able to use the watch to date!! I may have to send it back and get another brand!!Read More
