Together we’ll accomplish more – Optimal Training Zones

By exercising within your target training zone, you’ll achieve more in less time. Each zone offers different benefits. The most popular zone range is 50% to 80% of your maximum heart. This is where you achieve cardio benefits, burn fat, and become fitter. Your Omron Heart Rate Monitor is programmable so you can maintain your workout within your chosen zone. (See the chart for percentages)

+ Health Maintenance–(65%-78%) Low-intensity level training. Good if you’re a beginner and strengthening your cardiovascular system.

+ Aerobic Exercise–(65%-85%) Increases strength and endurance. Burns calories faster and can be sustained during longer workouts.

+ Anaerobic Exercise–(78%-90%) Improves speed and power. This zone builds muscle faster, but cannot be maintained for long workouts.

+ Red Line–(90%-100%) Maximum capacity.

Does exactly what I need it to do!, April 26, 2006
By 

This review is from: Omron HR-100CN Heart Rate Monitor (Health and Beauty)
Being a person who hasn’t ever joined a gym, I never knew stuff like this existed. I was very interested in this item because I’ve been walking for exercise but wasn’t really sure I was reaching my target heart rate consistently.

The monitor, which displays the time as well as your heart rate on a watch, works in conjuction with a gizmo that you strap around yourself, just under your chest. (I will tell you, since I was concerned about this, that it’s hardly noticeable once it’s in place…it’s a 12″ or so long piece of plastic with an adjustable elastic strap…not very bulky at all!) The monitor also features a stopwatch and an alarm, so that after you set your minimum & maximum desired heart rates, you can be alerted when you are out of range. The alarm is a “beep-beep” that I can hear over the book on tape I drag along with me. Your heart rate is updated every second or two so you will always know if you need to pick up the pace a bit.

Although I have not yet had to do so, the chest strap has a removable backing, and you apparently can change the battery yourself (this is a big deal, I guess, since some of the more expensive monitors require that you send them to the factory for a battery change). The elastic strap is also completely removable, which makes it very easy to wash (and you will need to if you’re exercising!).

The monitor comes packaged in a small, zippered carrying case, and includes an attachment that allows you to place it on a bicycle handlebar.

This does everything I need it to, and I recommend it for anyone who is just getting started in an exercise program.

Good product for active users, April 5, 2006

This review is from: Omron HR-100CN Heart Rate Monitor (Health and Beauty)
Good:

– Works as advertised

– Easy to setup

– Rugged and well constructed

Bad:

– Wrist watch does not start receiving heart rate unless you are sweating at lot/apply a lot of water on the strap and your chest

– In a gym setting, there seems to be interference from electrical equipment (treadmills, etc) and the monitor works intermittently

– If there are other users w/ heart-rate monitors in the vicinity, their readings and my readings overlap causing some amount of confusion

Excellent monitor, November 4, 2005

This review is from: Omron HR-100CN Heart Rate Monitor (Health and Beauty)
This was my first heart rate monitor & I am very pleased with it. Did not require a lot of instruction. The chest strap is comfortable. Occasionally the monitor does not immediately pick up an accurate rate when first put on – but after a few seconds you are ready to go. I will be ordering another for my mother. Excellent product for the price.
