Timex T5G971 Unisex Sports Personal Heart Rate Monitor Watch | Fitness & Cardio Tracking Watch with Chest Strap

The streamlined, stylish Timex T5G971 for both men and women continuously tracks heart rate during exercise, includes pre-set target heart rate zones and alarms that put you back on track when you've moved out of the zone.

The function buttons are intuitive and easy to use and features include calories burned, 100-hour chronograph, 27-lap memory, 100-hour countdown timer, activity time and peak heart rate. Needless to say it can also act as a watch with month/day/date display and 12/24-hour time. The INDIGLO electroluminescent night light makes it easy to read even in low lighting. The watch includes a comfortable and stylish wrist strap and a sturdy resin case.

Unlike many moderately priced heart rate monitors the T5G971 includes a chest strap with built-in sensors so you don't have to hold a finger on the heart-rate sensor to get a pulse reading.

The biggest drawback is that the watch does not store past workouts. If you want to track your progress you'll need to manually record the information before turning off the heart rate monitor.

The Timex T5G971 Unisex Sports Personal Heart Rate Monitor Watch is great for use in the gym as the signal is automatically picked up by treadmills and other cardio machines. It's water resistant to 165 feet and uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, extending the life of the watch battery.

For it's low-price, style, accuracy and essential features, the Timex T5G971 is highly recommended.

    The Timex met all my needs and at a very good price. I was a bit concerned because I have a 54″ chest and a fairly large wrist. I was also concerned because the packaging is not specific about whether it has a coded signal so that it does not pick up other heartrate monitor signals. The chest strap fits me well but if my chest gets too much larger, it’s going to be a bit snug. The wrist band also fits but it’s in the last hole, and so far, I haven’t picked up anyone else’s monitor or bled over onto anyone else’s cardio machines.
