Using a Heart Rate MonitorBuying a Heart Rate Monitor

heart rate monitor If you desire to lose weight or become more fit, a heart rate monitor can benefit your healthy lifestyle.  Consider it the active person's must-have accessory!  As more studies show that the key to effective exercise lies in balancing frequency, intensity, and time, more people are relying on heart rate monitors to achieve this balance.  Heart rate monitors are lightweight, easy to wear, and simple to use.  They can be worn in the great outdoors or inside the gym, and many of them can even be worn in the water!  Whether you are embarking on a new exercise program or are an elite athlete, you may find that these monitors benefit your physical fitness.

Heart rate monitors are electronic devices that enable people to monitor their heart rates while exercising.  A heart rate monitor usually consists of a snug chest strap and a wrist-worn display.  The chest strap contains a sensor that measures the electrocardiogram signal from the wearer's heart and transmits current heart-rate data to the wrist display.  The wrist display receives and displays the individual's current heart rate.  Some advanced heart monitors display more information, such as average heart rate and calories burned during a specified time period.  They may also store detailed log data, that can be downloaded to a computer.

Heart rate monitoring technologies are no longer limited to chest strap sensors, however.  Joggers and runners will especially appreciate Beurer's innovative, beltless heart rate monitor, which uses a finger sensor to measure its wearer's heart rate.
