Heart Rate Monitor
Why is Heart Rate Important for Exercise?
Over-intense fitness workouts may cause fatigue, dehydration even injury. While insufficiently intense exercise may greatly reduce your health or weight-reduction benefits. The most effective way to reach and maintain your optimum workout rate (exercise intensity), is to monitor your heart-rate (or pulse) in order to remain within your target-heart-rate zone.
What is a Heart Rate Monitor?
As the name suggests, a heart rate monitor measures heart beats. It consists of a chest strap transmitter which is worn around the chest across the heart. The transmitter detects the heart-beat rather like an electro-cardiogram. The heart-rate is relayed to a display unit which is worn on the wrist, like a wristwatch. Some heart rate monitors transmit the results orally via earphones (eg. Heartalker models). A heart-rate monitor is the easiest and most accurate way to measure your heart rate while performing an exercise workout.

Who Benefits From a Heart Rate Monitor?
Anyone who wants to get maximum benefits from their exercise workout, or who wants to lose weight, or who has specific athletic performance goals, will derive considerable benefits from buying a heart rate monitor.
