I’ve never owned a heart rate monitor before. As I am I trying to lose weight, my doctor recommended that I get my heart rate within the targeted range, also known as the “fat burning zone” for at least 10 minutes a day, every day. I’ve seen the heart rate monitor on the machines in the gym, but hadn’t done much research into ones that you take home.
When I had the opportunity to review a BeetsBLU Heart Rate Monitor, I couldn’t be more elated. I needed this.
After cracking it open, I had to figure out what my target heart rate zone.
Putting on the BeetsBLU Heart Rate Monitor wasn’t difficult. I put it over my head, slid it down and adjusted it right under my bra. I placed the sensors against my skin and attached the little box. Because I was already moving from cleaning up after my girls, I didn’t need to add water to the sensors.
I did not have any problem with it syncing to my Samsung Galaxy S4. However, I wish it explained what apps it worked with before it talked about automatically syncing. My phone recognized the device immediately, but I had to keep reading to figure out how to use it. I didn’t have any of the compatible apps, so I chose MapMyRun.
As soon as I downloaded the app, MapMyRun synced with BeetsBLU Heart Rate Monitor.
I was quickly able to determine my heart rate. I went for my first run, and was able to track my heart rate with the app throughout the run.
I have had the monitor for a week and have not had any issues.
