Heart Rate Monitor Reviews My Personal Watch The Pro Form Pro Heart Rate Monitor

The Watch I use Everyday, Every Damn Day!

PRODUCT: ProForm Pro Heart Rate Monitor, Strapless, Water Resistant, Calore Counter

I’m Probably Pro Form’s Most Enthusiastic Customer

Overall I am the only one that has reviewed this heart rate monitor on Amazon. I gave it 4 stars.

My logic for 4 is based on its tendency to sometimes piss me off and not sense my pulse after a big sprinting session. I’m guessing that my HR is too high for the watch to accurately compute it. There is most likely a range for which the watch is say 5% accurate. My max HR is probably out of the range. I remember reading something like that in the manual.

Still, I’m very happy. I buy a new one every 6 months. I think they look cool and they’re awesome to take off at a party and get others and see who has the lowest resting heart rate. I don’t know what sort of parties you’re going to, but mine are awesome 🙂

I buy a new one every 6 months because, on average, that’s been how long it takes for the HR function to stop working. I use the bloody thing everyday! I use it in the morning, in the afternoon and at night. So it will undoubtedly last longer than 6 months for you.

Resting of 45 BPM

See, there’s my heart rate monitor.

If you look really close, the watch actually has the brandname Sportline. But I scoured the internet looking at all the Sportline range of heart monitors and my watch is definitely the Pro Form pictured above not Sportline.

I live in Australia, so I’m thinking it got renamed to Sportline because of trademark issues with the name of an Australian company also called Pro-form – not sure.

So as I said I go through one of these every 6 months. I’m on my fifth or sixth at this point. And of those 6, two had buttons fall off after 3 months. The heart sensing button was still sweet. It was the stop/start button and reset button that fell off. I hacked up a solution and kept going with them till the 6 months was up.
