Users’ Positive Comments

  • This watch provides accurate numbers regarding the burned calories.
  • You can use this watch while swimming as it is waterproof.
  • It is very easy to set up and lets you get the most of your workouts.
  • It asks for your weight, height and gender and then it calculates your calories burned basing on your data making it more reliable than estimates from most pedometers and gym equipments.
  • My personal trainer recommends this watch and though you may see flashier and more attractive monitors, they will not be as reliable as this watch.
  • The chest band is comfortable to wear that you forget you have it on.
  • It works great, easy to set up and transmits your heart rate to gym equipment.
  • This monitor is accurate. The elliptical machines at gym overestimate calories burned by approximately 30% and treadmill underestimates by 40%.

Users’ Negative Comments

  • Changing the weight on the watch is tedious as you have to go all the way up to 300 and start over again at step 1.
  • After a couple of uses, the heart rate seemed to stick in one place no matter how hard I exercised and adjusting the chest monitor didn’t help.
  • This watch gives erratic heart rate ratings.
  • Despite the waterproof specification, this watch doesn’t resist water at all.
