The ultimate goal of training with a heart monitor is to be able to run longer and faster with a lower heart rate. If you keep track of your results, there will be a couple of ways to see the progress. First, as you improve, you will see that running the same distances at the same heart rate will become easier. Effectively, you will be able to run faster for these distances without your heart having to work as hard. This is a direct reflection of increased efficiency of the heart. To see this, try running a set course - with your monitor - that is several miles long, and stick to a preset speed, perhaps your marathon pace. Then, under similar weather conditions, try the same course again a few weeks later. Run it at the same pace as you ran previously, and compare your heart rates for the two runs. If you've gotten fitter since your first run, your heart rate should be lower during your second. Another way to see results is to keep track of your resting heart rate by taking it down and recording it every morning before you get out of bed. Many trainers recommend that runners keep track of their RHR on a daily basis, and, as stated above in the RHR section, increased fitness should bring with it a lower RHR.

Getting heart rate on mio petite


Is your heart working? Sorry, bad joke. The only thing besides the watch malfunctioning is that you need to have your hand and arm relaxed when you touch the watch case. Apparently if your muscles are tense it can cause the monitor to not read.

Tip

Trouble with heart rate monitor reading heart rate.


Can't get a heart rate to show on your heart rate monitor? If there are no other issues with the watch, then most likely what you are experiencing is an issue with the Heart Rate Strap.

It is very common for all brands of heart rate monitors to have issues with measurement.

The #1 reason is poor contact with the strap and your skin. - Make sure the contacts are wet and touching the skin with good contact.
#2 reason - Weak battery, may need to replace.
#3 reason - Sensors on strap have salt build up from sweat - Clean the strap and contacts with soap and water, if deep cleaning is neccessary use a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol.
#4 reason - Strap is too low on the body, raise as high on the chest as possible to just under the breasts. Strap too low will cause a weak signal.

If none of these seem to help, then you should contact an authorized repair center or the customer service for your brand, and see about possible repair or exchange/ return.

I NEED AN OWNERS MANUAL FOR BA-616W ...GOT IT 2 YRS AGO AND ONLY HAVE THE INSTRUCTION SHEET ..BUT I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ THE NUMBERS AND WHAT THEY MEAN. PLEASE HELP


As a 30 year EMT, I think I can help you.

There's 2 numbers that make up your blood pressure. The top number is called the Systolic pressure. The bottom number is call the Diastolic pressure. When a blood pressure is taken, it's measuring the pressure that the heart is producing when it pumps blood through the arteries. For example, what's considered a normal blood pressure in a healthy individual is in the range of 120/80. Of course age, life style and other health conditions, play a role in what yours may be. A person with High blood pressure or Hypertension would have a blood pressure of over 160 - Systolic and over 90+ Diastolic. 90 is actually the borderline for hypertension. That's why I indicated 90+.

The other reading on your monitor is your heart rate or pulse rate. It's how many beats your heart completes in one minute. It also indicates an irregular heart beat by the showing a small LED window on the left of the screen adjacent to the Systolic pressure reading, It will say IHB. Any movement or shaking or talking during the measurement can result in pulse irregularities. So hold very still when taking your blood pressure. This irregularity by itself is not of much concern, unless it shows up frequently. In which case, you should seek medical advice.

That covers just about all there is to know about what the readings mean. Armed with this, you should be able to effectively monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate and report them to your doctor.

Hope I was able to help you understand how it works and what it's telling you. if so, please let me know, by rating my response to you. Thanks and have a healthy day.

Does the odor treadmill measure heart rate without holding on to the grips


Are you sure you have the correct brand of Treadmill. Never heard of this one.

Double check your brand and model. IFIT is availalable on several brands and models of treadmills, it is possible that your treadmill only has heart rate grips and also possible it will do both.

Generally a treadmill that will work with a heart rate strap will say so right on the face.

Blood pressure monitor problem


The two numbers that measure your blood pressure are written like a fraction: one number on top and one on the bottom. The top number in a blood pressure reading refers to the systolic pressure. It measures the pressure inside your blood vessels at the moment your heart beats. The bottom number represents your diastolic pressure. It measures the pressure in your blood vessels when your heart is resting between heartbeats. A good blood pressure for most people will be under 120/80, as most people with blood pressure problems have high blood pressure. However, extreme low blood pressure can also be a serious health concern.

How do tou reset the review function on a timex 30 lap ironman triathlon?


Yeah...it took me awhile to figure this one out too.

You can't actually reset the Review function back to zero. Instead, you replace the data with your latest workout.

Here are the steps:
1) turn on heart rate monitor
2) setup HRM zone
3) start chronograph
4) do your workout
5) stop chronograph
6) review your results

Starting the chronograph is the key. This is the step I missed
