A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute. Generally, a lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. For example, a well-trained athlete might have a normal resting heart rate closer to 40 beats a minute.
Work is often defined as how much volume or weight is carried, for how far in a given period of time. Examples: Move 1000 Lbs 10 feet in 10 minutes, Now move it 20 feet in 10 min - you've done twice the work. Or, 2000 lbs 10 feet in 10 minutes = twice the work. 1000 lbs, 10 feet in 5 minutes = twice the work.
So, a good measure for a heart would be how much blood is pumped in a period of time. The amount of blood in each beat doesn't really change, this distance is always the same, so how often it happens is a pretty good indicator. Simplified, you could say that the heart does the most work when it beats the fastest. Run for 130 beats per minute is 4 times the work of say, sleeping at 30 beats in a minute. Anything that raises yur heart rate to the highest would be the most work.
I would go to Polar for a definitive answer but your monitor may not be making a good contact with your body. Therefore the reception of your heart beat is constantly starting over and can't give a reading fast enough. Try adjusting how you wear the monitor and see if it makes a difference. There is a battery in the chest strap also. The new ones have to go to Polar to get replaced unfortunately. That is another possibility.
The only alarms available to use for that watch is your heart rate for exercise and a daily alarm. Unfortunately it does not have the hourly alarm feature. I wish it did I am a personal trainer and hourly chimes would help to keep me on time but my rs200 doesn't have the feature either. Sorry :)
to shutoff HR out of range alarm - when selecting the ranges in the HRM Steup mode - press the START/SPLIT button to toggle the alarm on and off. (use the start/stop button on the pro fitness model). page 14 in my manual
