There are five easy steps you should take: 1. Roughly estimate your maximum heart rate (MHR) by subtracting your age from 220 (or a little more accurately, 214-(0.8 x age) for men, and 209-(0.9 x age) for women. If you're a regular runner, you can test yourself for your MHR by warming up and then doing a combination of short, fast runs as follows, ideally on a treadmill: run as fast as you can, evenly, for three minutes, then rest with two or three minutes gentle running, then repeat your three-minute maximal run; at some stage during the second effort you should get a higher MHR value than with any other method. 2. Work out your training zones: 50-60 per cent of maximum for easy recovery runs; 60-70 per cent for basic weight management; 70-80 per cent for aerobic training; and 80-100 per cent for threshold runs and speed training. The figures are more accurate if you find percentages of your working heart rate, then add them to your resting heart rate. You find your working heart rate by subtracting your resting heart rate from your maximum. 3. If you don't already have a training schedule, plan your runs for the week ahead and allocate a target heart rate zone for each run. 4. Stick to these zones. 5. Be alert for unusual readings. If you're ill, tired, stressed or not fully recovered from a race, then your resting heart rate may be higher than normal. If it's 5-10 beats above normal, make your day's run an easy one. Any higher than that and you should definitely have a rest day.

Watch won't read heart rate


It could be the battery on the strap is not good. However just to be sure make sure you are wetting the strap and it is around chest, front should sit right about on the bottom of pectoral or chest, if you are female make sure it is under your sports bra the bra band will be over it. I would start warming up then hit the start button it should work.

HRM troubleshoot


A HRM is a training tool that helps you do cardiovascular (CV) training correctly, neither too hard, nor too easy. It’s almost like having a personal coach on your wrist! Every HRM comes in two parts: 1. An elasticated chest strap which contains a pair of sensors that detect and transmit your heart rate. 2. A wrist worn receiver that receives the signal from the chest strap and displays your heart rate. The receiver may also have additional functions and display other information depending upon the HRM model chosen. Both the chest strap and receiver are battery operated.

Heart rate monitor question


Price is always a consideration when it comes to HRM's. You can easily go to Target and purchase a $40 HRM, but consider the quality. Buying a HRM is an investment and you get what you pay for. You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a high quality HRM, but you do want to make sure that it will last a long time. When buying a HRM go for trusted brands such as Polar, LifeSource, or Mio. Some of the cheaper models won't fit as snugly and may be heavier than higher quality brands.
