Timex 1440 Sports Personal Heart Rate Monitor 54212 I have an old Timex heart rate monitor that has lasted me forever. It works as well as any other heart rate monitor. The only problem is that I wouldn’t get an accurate reading until I was dripping with sweat. I finally found something to get an accurate reading from the moment I put it on.

A heart rate monitor is a great tool to measure your intensity during a workout, but most of the time, you can tell if you’re working out too hard. If you have a heart rate monitor, by all means, use it. If you don’t, no problem. Don’t let the lack of gadgets get in the way of getting out the door and getting some activity into your life.

    Swimmers just press their index and middle fingers on their carotid artery and count for six seconds on the lap clock, subtracting one beat and multiplying by 10. If the first and last beats are not exactly on 0 and 6 seconds, you add or subtract a few beats per minute based on the offset. Fast and cheap, no gadgets required.
