Product Description

From Timex arrives the ultimate training partner for health and fitness enthusiasts alike. Input your target fitness heartrate zone and you will be kept on course with audible alert and visual in-zone indication on screen. The 27-lap memoryrecall and calorie expenditure mean this is the ultimate for heart rate training both during and after workout. This Timex watch gives the user heart rate analysis for one session by displaying minimum, average and peak heart rate, arguably the most important factors of each training session. Heart rate can either be viewed as percentage of maximum heart rate or simply by the heart rate beats per minute. Digital transmission allows the user to train in a gym environment within close proximity to other heart rate monitor users without experiencing any interference. With a heart rate monitor using analog transmission, it is possible that the user may have inaccurate readings of heart rate. Crossover interference is when the signals for two or more heart rate transmitters interfere with each other. The Target Fitness Heart Rate Monitor allows you to train without being interrupted. The user also has the option to download the heart rate data to a PC by purchasing the Timex Data Recorder 2. This is a software package solution that can assist data control of fitness progression over time.

It features a chest strap heart rate monitor, easily accessible function buttons, durable resin case, and comfortable resin strap with a stylish tapered profile. For integrating heart rate monitoring into your training, this watch enables you to track your avareage heart rate and pre-set target heart rate zones with data for time spent within that zone and alarms.

Customer Reviews:

  • It is ok
    The watch is ok to me. I am not the smartest when it comes to gadgetry so I have a difficult time getting the heart rate monitor to work. Other features to the watch are good....more info
  • It works!!
    If you're like me and have to arise much earlier than your spouse and need a gentle awakening, this is it. My wife is a light sleeper, so I can't use an alarm clock. The vibrating alarm works great. The band is comfortable to sleep with. Highly recommended....more info
  • does the job
    great HRM, functions well, and has great features. it was slightly larger than what i thought (which is okay for guys, but since im a girl, i wanted something a little smaller) and the user interface isnt all that intuitive. however, it gets the job done and that's all you really want a HRM to do....more info
  • Excellent Tool for training
    This watch do exactly what they say, numbers are big, very easy to use and the size its perfect for my wrist, the strap in the chest is very confortable, I use this wacth every day for runnig and gym and its the perfect tool for a good training, I do recomended for those who are serious about training, the only thing I found is the watch is 30M waterproof not 50M but I dont care about this because Im not going so deep anyway....more info
  • Works great, but not with the gym's exercise machines
    I'm 6 feet 4 inches and 210 pounds. The watch is just the right size for me and the band seems quite heavy duty and has a nice feature where the tail of the band has a tab that fits into a notch in the buckle piece so it doesn't flap. The HRM sensor fits comfortably on my 42 inch chest with the detachable band expanded to it's maximum extent. I think it would be too tight for larger chests.

    I run the sensor electrodes under the tap and strap it on and the watch always gets a solid heart rate signal. I wear it while using a number of cardio and weight-training machines and in exercise and stretch classes flexing into a lot of crazy positions, and the sensor has yet to drop out. The batteries were fine out of the box.

    The watch has a number of fancy watch features, most I don't use. One great feature is the dual timezone setup. I keep the second zone set to UTC and a push of the "start split" button accesses it. If you are into HIIT, note that the timer feature doesn't have the capability for doing (for example) 30 seconds HI and 60 seconds recovery.

    The only problem is that I have been unable to get the sensor to work wirelessly with the Precor and Nautilus machines. Note that the product literature doesn't claim that this should work and there doesn't appear to be any standard for interoperability between machines and wireless HRM devices. Some reviews for Timex HRM devices claim that the sensors DO talk to machines. If someone has gotten THIS specific product to work with machines, please tell us how in a comment to this review.

    Otherwise I think this product gives very good value. I give it 4.5 stars and if it worked with the cardio machines I would give it five stars. Some may feel it is unfair to downgrade a product rating for lacking a feature it doesn't claim to have: I think a five-star rating should indicate total satisfaction. I really wish the industry would get together and create a standard so these things can work together!...more info
  • Little hard to figure out!
    Purchased it for my husband, it was a little hard for him to figure out, and since he is an engineer it must be hard for anyone to figure out, also a little hard to get around chest area. Other wise a very good product....more info
  • What I was looking for
    The item was received as promised, and as advertised. I particularly like the large readout for pulse rate and for the ease in selecting that mode. ...more info
  • Perfect exercise companian
    I love this watch. I've had it for about 3 weeks now and it does it's job perfectly. I love the zone system. It allows me to run much farther and for longer than I have before because I don't exhaust myself by running faster than my body can manage. The beeping feature (that can be turned off) that features two tone beeps to let you know whether you need to slow down or speed up to stay in your zone allows you to pace yourself without having to look at the watch. This model features a bar at the top of the display that shows the lower and upper limits of the zone you want to be in and where you are within (or outside) the zone. This is particularly useful if you decide to turn the two tone beeps off. Not all heart rate monitors from Timex feature this.

    The batteries on the chest strap and the watch can be replaced by the user - an uncommon feature I believe.

    The chest strap is quite comfortable and picks up signals very well - my wife tried it and she had no trouble with it either (the strap sits on the lower side of the chest). I found that if I put it on about 15 min before I exercised, my body would generate the sweat needed for good pickup.

    Some reviewers have commented that the indiglo feature where the numerals light up (rather than the face) made for difficult reading. I found that if I tilted the watch slightly (rather than place the face at right angles to the line of sight), the numerals were clearly visible. I think I prefer this to the old method of lighting the face.

    It is a fairly handsome watch - a bit on the thick side (about 14 mm x 42 mm or so wide) - perfect for a man even for daily wear but certainly large for a woman.

    It took me a while to decide on buying this watch. Lack of clear size information (their midsize, large and extra large size indications are meaningless) on the Timex website meant that I had to scour shops and call customer service a couple of times to have them measure the watches for me.
