Hi guys and gals. Richard here.

So now that you know about your Privacy I thought I should be upfront and transparent about everything. So here it is:

This website is not primarily financially driven. I love heart rate monitors. I use one every single day. I love to research about them and learn how they work etc. I started this site with the idea that I may be able to bring a community together. A community of heart rate monitor enthusiasts. I have a feeling there are more like me. That is the main driver behind this website.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

First, the obvious: I write heart rate monitor reviews, lists and give buying advice on this website (www.heartratemonitorreviewstips.com). I link to these heart rate monitors on Amazon to help you find the best price online.

The less obvious: If you click on the link and buy the product on Amazon I get a commission from Amazon. The commission is usually about 4% of the sale price. This is how this website’s bills are paid (ie. server hosting costs). Thank you for your support!

…And just to cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:

This disclosure page is modified from Tim Ferriss’s.
