Monitor your heart rate with Omron's HR-100C. View larger.
To achieve an effective workout, no matter what the aerobic activity, you must maintain your heart rate at a proper level for a minimum of 20 minutes. In general, the proper level falls between 65 percent-85 percent of your maximum heart rate. To ensure you don't drop above or below your proper level, the HR-100C is built with an alarm option that indicates low and high heart rates.

Omron includes a chest transmitter belt with the wristwatch-style monitor. This transmitter sends data to the receiver on your wrist at a distance up to 98 feet (30 meters). The HR-100C is built with a backlight function for exercising after nightfall, and it also displays time of day and a daily reminder alarm feature. Also included is a mounting bracket that makes it easy to attach the watch receiver to most treadmills and bicycles and a soft, zippered storage case.

Q&A - Fitness Monitors

What is the Bioelectrical Impedance Method?
Bioelectrical Impedance (BI) is considered one of the most accurate and accessible methods of screening body fat. Muscles, blood vessels and bones are body tissues having a high water content that conduct electricity easily. Body fat is tissue that has little electric conductivity. The monitor sends an extremely weak electrical current through your body to determine the amount of fat tissue. The weak electrical current is not felt while operating the Body Fat Analyzer. The monitor is calculated by a formula that includes five factors; electric resistance, height, weight, age and gender.
What is visceral fat?
Visceral fat is located around the organs. Too much visceral fat is thought to be closely linked to increased level of fat in the bloodstream, which can lead to common conditions such as high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Sedentary life style causes excess visceral fat, and exercise can reduce it quicker than subcutaneous fat (fat located under skin).
What is resting metabolism?
Resting metabolism is the energy to maintain vital functions and it counts 60 to 70% of total energy consumption. Knowing your resting metabolism can help your dietplan. If you can increase daily activity while keeping food intake at resting metabolism level, you can lose weight.
What is skeletal muscle?
Skeletal muscle is muscle attached to the bones that is used to move the body. If you do weight loss without exercise, you may lose skeletal muscle. Skeletal muscle is important to maintain your resting metabolism as well as your functionality. Monitoring skeletal muscle during weight loss is key to avoid weight rebound in the future.

Customer Reviews:

  • great heart rate measurement
    The Omron HR -100c heart rate monitor gives a very accurate reading. It's one of the best watches I've ever worn. The chest strap is necessary for the more precise reading. Whatever you do don't waste your money on a more expensive brand....more info
  • Awesome deal!!
    This is a basic, simple, easy to use heart rate monitor. And a bonus- my treadmill picks up the signal. No problems with signal. Very good for the money!...more info
  • Great product!
    This is easy to use. The strap monitor that goes around your chest is really comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone who needed an affordable heart rate monitor. ...more info
  • Works intermitently

    This is my second HR-100C.First one I bought was 3 yrs back,it was pretty good deal and made use of it very well,it died after discontinuing to use for a year.So,I decided to buy another one.But this one works intermittently.I am too lazy to return it.I am surprised and not-satisfied....more info
  • Good heart rate monitor
    Read up on it, for the price is vary good, has a few other features also. You need to read the directions first. Like wetting band or if not wait a while till you sweat. Also if you leave on clock works best when checking heart rate....more info
  • Heart Rate Monitor
    Great product. Works as advertised, nice side effect was that the chest strap also transmitted to the treadmills I use at my gym....more info
  • Good product but erratic readings at times
    The product is good and cheap. It does what you need it to do without the bells and whistles. However, I often get very erratic readings where the HR jumps from 120 to 170 to 140 to 180. A little annoying at times if you are trying to stay within a limit. Overall great value for the price though but don't expect it to do much besides tell you what your HR is....more info
  • Great for recovery or exercising in general
    I had a heart attack at 36 years old. My cardio rehabilitation requires me to work out below certain heart beats (120, 130, 140, etc.). So I got this watch for walking around the neighborhood. Doing the cardio rehab, I noticed that the chest strap syncs up with equipment that states it will do the same for Polar watches. Now I am hitting 24 Hour Fitness and it syncs with all of their equipment. This allows me to monitor my heart rate while exercising, reducing the risk of another heart attack. This allows me to work out at a rate just below my max allowed, but high enough to benefit from the workout as much as possible.

    I've been using this for a couple of hours per day for the past 4 weeks and it's still going strong. Even if the battery fails, I can replace it without sending it to the manufacturer. It even has a low and high pulse alert with audible warning. Another awesome thing is that it updates the watch real time without having to push a button.

    The only down side is no compatability with computer software and ocassionally if you are bent over or dry it can drop the signal; however, at the very low cost that I paid, I wasn't expecting that function. This serves my needs and my therapist all have commended me for using this during my workouts....more info
  • Another positive review to add to the pile
    This is my first HRM and I have to admit I was concerned about what I was getting myself into. I read a lot about HRM's and there was simply so much information I was at a loss. After 2 weeks of use (4 days per week) I can now say that this was an excellent purchase.

    ACCURACY - I read reviews that said this HRM was not the most accurate and as I had a doctors appointment three days after it arrived I took it with me. The monitor was 2 beats higher in a sitting position and 2 beats in a standing. I consider that variance extremely negligible and just factored it in to my workout rotation.

    **** I have not taken this HRM biking or swimming. ****

    COMFORT - The HRM was much more comfortable than I had anticipated and stayed in place without irritation during a 30 min road run, a 45 min tread mill run, and a 45 min Plyometric workout. During the treadmill run I did attach the watch to the treadmill itself and it seemed to read as accurately as if it was on my wrist. I had some chest irritation from a weekend sunburn and the monitor did chafe a little due to the slight movement up and down when a good sweat started but donning a light runners shirt solved the problem and there seemed to be no change in the ability to read my HR.

    Ease of use - It is very easy to get started with the product. It was ready to go out of the box and with a quick strap adjustment for chest size I put the monitor and watch on, pressed the red button and the number quickly came up. *** Large number display was easy to read even during frantic movement.

    Some of the other functions were not as intuitive as setting the time and starting the monitor but this is certainly not the hardest watch I've ever set.

    Aside - - Most ppl want an HRM to make sure they are in there zone. This HRM helped me realize that there were places in my routine where I was moving over 185 and I was able to scale back in those areas. That's a dangerous place for your heart and I'm glad I bought this product and found out I was putting myself in harms way.

    ---------------

    Conclusion - I'm very happy with the product. It is a very inexpensive introduction to the HRM world and fits my uses perfectly.

    A buddy of mine purchased this for P90x at the same time and has the same affection for it as I do ... He likes it much better than his original Rebok due to the easy of reading the display and comfort.

    There is no calorie counter but ... I really don't think buying the HRM's with them are worth the added cost considering the performance of this 'base' model.

    ***** I did not test this in the water.


    ++++++++++ If your trying to figure out why to get a strap rather than just a watch, it's because the strapless HRM's require you to stop moving in order to take a reading. They are also less accurate (although some of the newer $300+ ones are said to be better). Just thought I'd throw that in since I spent alot of time trying to figure that out. The straps are much more comfortable than I thought....more info
  • Good product
    The product works as advertised. The heart rate monitor is a tremendous help in keeping my heart rate in the fat burning zone. One pleasant surprise is that most of the cardio equipment in my local gym reads the signal from the monitor so I get a continous heart rate readout on the equipment panel....more info
  • Not completely satisfatory.
    Pros:
    It arrived quickly and it comes with a really good case.
    Easy to use (to set max and min rates, for instance).
    The transmitter sends the information to the treadmill so you wouldn't have to look at your wrist to check the HR.

    Cons:
    It started to show rates of 222 bpm and got back to correct information in the screen but I lost my patience when it happened in the 4th time in the same run and gave it to my brother :p

    But maybe it is random.

    ...more info
  • Great item for the price
    This heart rate monitor is much better than I expected. My personal trainer said that I should get one, and suggested a Polar model that costs over $100. When I came to the gym with this Omron model and told him how inexpensive it was, he decided to tell all of his clients to buy this model from now on. ...more info
  • Read this review
    I purchased this product for one reason only.. That is... to avoid passing out during an extreme workout. My zone (bpm) is from 166-177 bpm, I normally go pass that and go up to 210bpm which could result to heart failure. I don't have time to stop and count my pulse the old fashion way just to get a reading, thanks to this product I could finally stay in my zone and burn fat effectively.

    Price is very reasonable. The strap might be a lil too big for those of you who are skinny, petite or slimmer than 130 lb, 5 foot guy.

    Other than that, I highly recommend this especially for those of you who are doing P90X!!!

    ...more info
  • Excellent purchase
    I am not really a pro runner or anything, so I don't think my review will be as helpful as some other ones here. Despite that, I have to say i really like this watch. It fits comfortably on my wrist and the heart band does not bother me at all. From I have researched this is a pretty standard watch, but for this price I think it's a pretty good choice for anyone who wants to start practicing exercices and feel the need to have a heart monitor....more info
  • Not as indispensable as the Omron HJ-112.
    Omron came up with all-time winner with its HJ-112 pedometer, a device I give to older relatives and friends to put in their pocket with instructions as simple as, "Make sure you register 4000 to 10,000 steps." They love it, and I have yet to see one fail. So I turned my attentions to this heart rate monitor, first buying one for a dieting younger relative--all because of my measureless satisfaction with the incredibly accurate and convenient Omron HJ-112. Then I decided to move from counting steps to paying attention to my own heart-rate (admittedly, I'm a high-cholesterol bomb waiting to explode, especially if I continue to succumb to Breyer's and Haagan-Daz).

    To roughly paraphrase Blake, did he who made the Omron HJ-112 pedometer, that mini-marvel that outclasses the rest of the field by the widest of margins, make this uninspiring, "pedestrian" device? First of all, the set-up instructions alone will be a test of your digital literacy as well as your patience and, for that matter, your heart (unless you're a texting teenager accustomed to all of these lightweight gizmos that purport to accomplish every conceivable setting with a single button or two). It took this technologically- challenged, aging analog-ist almost 3 hours to make those little numbers--date, heart rate, time, etc.--behave. The display is relatively small and dark (though perhaps superior to the competition). The resistant illumination button reminds me of the earliest Timexes, before they made Indiglo buttons that didn't puncture your fingers when you activated the light. The monitor alerts you to a low and high rate--no more (if you've read Crowley and Lodge's best-selling exercise book, you'll no doubt want to set low and high rates for 3 or 4 zones).

    Now I understand the authors' statement that "any cheap $70-$80 heart monitor is good enough." At half that price, I question whether this Omron actually is good enough. I'll be satisfied if it works for a month or two, allowing me to see whether I want to get strapped (literally) with the whole business of heart rate monitors (I hadn't realized they're two-piece gizmos requiring a transmitting chest belt and conductive gel.) I guess if you put enough time into your aerobics to get that endogenous chemical "buzz" that runners talk about it (I'll believe it when it's more than a 2nd-hand report), it's probably worth it. But for the present, listening to music, watching TV, and occasionally walking the cat (while toting my trustworthy HJ-112) are beginning to look like preferable alternatives.

    Re: effectiveness. I feel more secure endorsing the Omron HJ-112, which blew away 7-8 different pedometers that had preceded it. Since the HR-100C is my first heart rate monitor, I can't make any claim about its clear-cut superiority over the competition. But I can attest that it's sensitive and gives read-outs--unmistakably and quickly. At the same time, I suspect those readings require more interpretation than the instruction manual supplies. Theoretically, my maximum heart rate is 150. When employing the Omron with a treadmill the Omron Heart Rate Monitor registered 140-145 for the 30 minute session (going between 3 and 4.5 mph). Supposedly, 100 is my "high aerobic zone," indicative of someone burning glucose in addition to fat, as occurs during a "fight or flight" episode. At a reading of 130 I'm leaving the aerobic zone entirely, entering vertiginous "anaerobic" levels that my body has no business frequenting on a regular basis. If the foregoing is accurate, I should consider myself lucky if I'm simply able to finish this rev......more info
  • Right on the money!
    I bought an Omron Blood Pressure Monitor as recommended by my doctor.

    Omron HEM-780 Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with ComFit Cuff

    I'm pleased with that Omron product and thought that I'd try out one of their Heart Rate Monitors. I'm pleased with this product as well. It's affordable and works great. It's not fancy but who needs fancy when you're just going to beat on it during workouts. My only issue is that the chest strap can feel a bit constricting once you're strapped in, but that feeling usually goes away in a few minutes.

    All in all a great purchase....more info
  • works great, but watchband is stiff
    As long as I moisten the chest strap, this reliably reports my heart rate. I checked it by comparing with gym machines that detect my pulse from handlebars. Most gym machines will also pick up the signal from the chest strap, so the watch receiver isn't necessary in that place. Some of the gym machines will display random glitches even when nobody else is nearby and the wrist receiver shows a believable pulse.

    The main problem is that the watchband is stiff. With my narrow wrists, it won't lie flat against the wrist near the buckle. It's not uncomfortable, it just doesn't fit right....more info
  • Excellent Monitor
    The Omron HR-100C Heart Rate Monitor has functioned perfectly from the moment it arrived. It does not have a lot of bells and whistles but it does just what I purchased it for--to monitor my daily cardio exercise routine. Most importantly, for me, the price was right....more info
  • Great Heart Rate Monitor
    This is a great heart rate monitor. Only problem was that it is slightly too large for me. So if you are a woman, you may want to look at monitors made specifically for woman. However if I wear it under my sports bra, it seems to stay put. I've never used a heart rate monitor before so I don't have anything else to compare it with. I like this one though and think it's a good price too. ...more info
  • too big...
    I haven't had a problem with it yet, it is pretty accurate, but not the most comfortable fit. I bet it is a lot more comfortable on men, or on a thicker built. I have to make it as small as possible and make sure my sports bra has a good grip on it, otherwise it becomes more of a problem than anything else. Even so, halfway through the activity I have to readjust it....more info
  • Very dependable
    This monitor is very accurate. Once you read the manual it is easy to use....more info
  • Great Value
    I have been using the Omron HR-100C for a couple of months and I am really satisfied with it. It just do what it is suppose to do: measures heart rate. I don't need any more. I have used other more (a lot more) expesive monitors with many functions, but I did not really need all those functions. I use this monitor while excercising in my house or the gym, where the belt sincronizes automatically with exercise machines and I can double check the heart rate.

    Now I am going to use it while swimming. I hope it works ok too.

  • strap too big
    I like the product for simply monitoring my heart rate and its pretty easy and straight forward to use .It comes with a little bag to carry it in and it has a neat piece that can be clipped on to a bike - you can tie the watch around this piece and have your heart rate right in front of you on the handle bars instead of having to look at your wrist. Great for spinning class . The only complaint I have is that the strap is not made to be small enough for someone who is petite. ( 34" at chest). Even when I adjusted the straps I could not get to it to fit snug so I wear it under a sports bra that helps hold in in place....more info
  • Poor Quality
    This is the second HeartRate monitor I've owned. My first was a Polar model, which I unfortunately lost during a move.

    I bought this Omron HR-100C model primarily due to its price, and also seeing that it was a best-seller on Amazon. Unfortunately I've found the quality lacking. Particularly when trying to switch between HeartRate and other modes, the watch will beep when the button is pressed, but won't always change modes. (It takes repeated presses of the button to change.) This is especially frustrating when you're riding and trying to fiddle with the fool thing.

    If all you need is a basic HR monitor, this will work. But if you also want to see the time, or use the stopwatch, I would look elsewhere. ...more info
  • Good product for the price
    Does its job quite well. Plastic band too stiff could be easier to change time. 1st one lasted about 1 year....more info
  • A Great Heart Rate Monitor
    I bought the Omron HR-100C heart rate monitor after putting up with the Polar brand monitors for many years. The Polar monitors worked well, but the display unit and the chest belt each had built-in batteries that, when they died, could be replaced only by Polar. You had to send it to Polar for replacement - a nuisance, and costly. This Omron system is different in that the batteries in both the display unit and the chest belt are easily replaceable by the user. Aside from that, the Omron system works as well as the Polar, and appears to be well built. However, I do have one minor caveat: If your heart rate exceeds the maximum that you set the system for, the resultant alarm is only visual, not audible as with Polar....more info
  • Good reviews = good product
    Performs perfectly. I considered purchasing the $100 integrated heart rate monitor for my Nautilus treadmill, but wanted a unit that I could also use while riding my mountain bike. This low cost unit keeps me in my heart range... no frills, just time and heart rate. The sensor connects to the readout almost immediately. You do have to moisten the sensors as with most other brands. The sensor also connects with another watch type monitor that is 8 years old....more info
  • Job Doer
    This monitor does exactly what you need it to. Nothing fancy, nothing flashy just accurate heart monitoring. For the money you can't beat it. ...more info
  • Highly accurate
    I wear the Omron 100C all day long because of health problems with my heart. At the doctor's office the other day I was wearing this Omron device while at the same time my finger was in the doctor's heart-monitoring device. The doctor wanted to see how accurate the Omron was, in order to make sure I was getting an accurate reading at home. (The doctor's device was a lot more expensive than this $35 watch you can get off of Amazon.) In about 5 minutes of monitoring, the doctor's heart monitor and my Omron were never more than 2 or 3 bpm apart. In other words a very acceptable margin of accuracy. So I'm happy with my purchase.

    The only real downside is that the battery runs out after about 30 days of all-day use. Also the chest strap can be a bit of a pain. But other than those two things (which are probably unavoidable downsides), I recommend the Omron 110C because of the aforementioned high amount of accuracy....more info

  • Great little, simple heart rate monitor
    I'm relatively fit, but I was curious about my heart rate when I lift weights and mountain bike. I didn't want to spend too much money upfront, since I didn't know the benefits of knowing my heart rate. This little machine lets me know if I'm resting too much and need to get my heart rate back up. It's nothing fancy, but it does the trick.

    I use the stop watch function to see how long I've worked out and use the heart rate function to let me know when to exert more work. On the elliptical at the gym, the monitor automatically sends info to the elliptical so I don't have to glance at my watch or hold onto the sensors. I haven't had a problem with interference from other machines. In short, it's a useful gadget if you're curious and want to take your training to the next level. ...more info
  • Perfect for its purpose
    This heart rate monitor does exactly what it's supposed to do--continuously measure your heart rate accurately. I've used this unit every day for 40 days. I had a $110 Polar unit for 12 years with more "bells & whistles" than this Omron unit, but most people don't need all the extras.

    I purchased this unit skeptically after reading all the negative reviews about it here. Some of the reviews made no sense, such as the reviewer that was told units were shipped with almost worn-out batteries??? Why would a company do that? Omron may have a huge quality-control problem if all the defective complaint reviews are accurate. However, I have nothing but positive results to report:

    Unit is extremely accurate--wet the strap where it contacts your chest, as recommended by Omron, and you will get very accurate readings. (When all else fails, read the instructions.) Tighten the chest strap so it's snug, but not too tight. The readings are right on after numerous accuracy checks. The built-in HR monitors on gym equipment are NOT very accurate, if you don't know that already.

    The transmitter belt is compatible with any Polar-compatible gym equipment so it will work on many pieces of common gym equipment.
    It's nice that this transmitter belt's battery is easily replaced, but that's not that big a deal. My Polar transmitter belt is using the original battery--12 years later. I have replaced the Polar watch battery once in 12 years.

    For $32.49 through Amazon, this unit's a bargain. The uppper and lower HR zone alarms are not useful; you can't hear the alarm in any gym setting. However, once you start using a HR monitor you will soon know your 3-4 important zones by memory and can adjust your workout accordingly.

    If you're wondering why I exercised for the past 40 days, I just read a GREAT book, Younger Next Year, which states we should exercise at least six days a week for optimal health and fitness. The book explains in detail the proper use of a HR monitor. I can't recommend this book enough if you want to maximize your health and quality of life.

    I only used it a couple time, it seems to doing what it should. I hope it will last if I use it more. ...more info
  • good value
    Product is sturdy and well made. Has occasional fits of wacky readings, but 97% of the time it works just fine. Interfaces well with the gym equipment - stepper, treadmill, bike etc. all pick up the monitor readings. Comes with a nice zippered carry case....more info
  • Erratic and Inconsistent Monitoring
    The Omron heart rate monitor was very erratic and inconsistent in its readings. It was fairly consistent at low heart rates but very inconsistent at higher rates. It also locked up several times with a frozen reading for extended periods of time....more info

  • Omron HR-100c Heart Rate Monitor
    I have had a couple HRM of varied levels of price and quality and the Omron seems to be a great piece of equipment for the price! I wear it running, hiking, and working out and it seems to be accurate and durable. The strap takes a little getting used to, but same to be said for all monitors that utilize the chest strap. The buying process was quite amazing, I ordered it and the product came the next day with just standard shipping. I am quite pleased....more info
  • Cheap, simple & easy to use
    I've used the Omron HR-100C three times so far and it is cheap, simple and easy to use. All you have to do is "wet" the contacts on the chest strap and it starts reading immediately. The Omron gives a reading exactly equal to or w/in 1-2 beats above that of the electronic readings on my gym's treadmill and elliptical machines. The readout is large and easy for my nearsighted eyes to read and the watch comes with a convenient carrying case in which to store the watch, strap and instructions. It doesn't have a coded signal to prevent conflict with other monitors (but I haven't had any problem with this yet) and it doesn't come w/any memory or readout features (but I don't need them). However, it only costs $32.49 and does all that you need to do to monitor your heart rate while you workout and, if that's all you need, I highly recommend it. ...more info
