I was looking at ads for heart rate monitors yesterday. There is a large ad for polar heart rate monitors at my gym. I was wondering if they're useful. I look at the ads and the reviews and I think that I really don't need to know my heart rate at any moment. The calorie burns given on SP are accurate enough.
Heart rate monitors look like a neat toy and I don't have a watch. I have enough trouble setting up an ordinary watch. I had to give up one because I forgot how to set the time on it. I don't want to get an expensive heart rate monitor and find it completely useless because I can't figure out the instructions. I might not even be able to set the time on it. No one wants to wear a watch with the wrong time.
First, to anyone that has one. Are they easy to set? Do you find it useful? Do they make exercising more fun?
Still, I might never buy one or buy one tomorrow. I'm like that when it comes to buying things. I can look at ads for something for months and not buy it. I longed for a Kindle for months and I still haven't bought one. I won't list all the crap that I've bought on impulse and never needed.
