Wahoo TICKR X Heart Rate Monitor with Memory

So after having done a fitness assessment, it was suggested that I get a heart rate monitor to stay within a certain range during my cardio. I looked at quite a few, but ended up going with this one here.

It connected easily with my iphone via bluetooth and was fairly accurate in terms of my readings. I tried using the metal handles on the machines I was working on to compare my heart rate and they were fairly close in number.

It’s pretty comfortable to wear and generally stayed in place as I ran, kickboxed, lifted weights or whatever I was doing. It’s not the cheapest, but you know the saying, you get what you pay for. It’s actually quite affordable though.

I do like the product, and though I don’t use it as much now because I kind of know the level of effort I need to exert to hit my target heart rate, I think it’s a good heart rate monitor if you want to use one.

The only thing I’d caution is to be careful about closing or crashing the app once you start recording. If you do, you’ll lose those workout readings. You have to properly exit and save the readings. The wahoo has internal memory built in, and it does record workouts with or without the phone, but if you launch and start the workout on the app, then the memory is not used and it needs the app to record. If you don’t save properly, basically you are screwed.

Overall, I’d say this was a good buy.
