A heart rate monitor (HRM) is a personal monitoring device that tracks an individual’s heart rate during physical exercise. The device captures your heart rate and intensity of the exercise and helps you to know your optimal heart rate target zone. This watch can monitor your heart rate over days, weeks or months. It also tells you the total duration of your workouts and shows you how many calories you have burned.
Before I purchased my HRM, I did a little research on different brands because I wanted to make sure I was getting a decent watch. I wanted to make sure that watch would tell me my target heart rate zones and how many calories I burned. I also wanted to make sure it was able to track the duration of my workouts and show me the total calories burned over time. As I researched, I found that watches ranged from $50 – $500. For a $500 HRM, it can pinpoint your exact location; these expensive brands come with GPS and can probably make you a cup of coffee. However, I just wanted a plain JANE bare basics that was a quality buy.
I then stumbled across the Sigma Women’s PC 9 Heart Rate Monitor and fell in love! This awesome watch helped me lose 40lbs before my wedding (of which I gained a few back, but I’m back in gear to get back to my wedding size). I was able to monitor the calories I was burning. Therefore, because I knew how many calories I burned, I was able to monitor my food intake better. For anyone looking for a HRM that is quality and not too pricey I would definitely recommend this one!
