It works and not nearly as complex as a polarFeb 21, 2008
By Jeff L.
I bought this watch to replace a hand me down Polar S210. Let me just say that I can set up a vcr, but I could never properly set up the polar. I wanted a hrm that told me my heart rate and yelled at me when I was out of my zone. That's it. I know what my heart rate zone should be, I didn't want to go through the endless options of the Polar to setup a single stupid heart rate range.
This Timex is not complicated. It does not have the advance features of the Polar. I know my way around the plain Timex Ironman and when I got this watch it took me about 5 minutes to figure out how to manually set the heart rate zones and to arm the alarm. There's also a dedicated button to simply turn on the heart rate. The manual's there and it's complicated, but it doesn't need to be read.
The Heart rate is a little goofy every now and then when jogging but that's usually because I'm not sweating enough. The watch is probably half the volume of my old Polar and not nearly as fugly. The watch face is appx 3cm high by 2.5cm wide... just a little larger than a plain Ironman Timex. The watch band's max accommodation is just over a 8 inch circumference. If you're a bigger guy, I'd go for the other model the T5H9xx
There's probably other features of this Timex that I'll never use. 4 out 5 stars because I'm pretty sure the watch amazon sent was a previously returned item.

This is perfect!!!Sep 13, 2007
By K. Carisi
This is my second Timex heart rate monitor and I would never buy anything else. I've experimented with Polars and was highly disappointed. This watch fits nicely and I recommend the black color so that dirt doesn't change the color. I wear it all day and then throw on the chest strap when exercising. I love checking how many calories I have burned and its easy to use. I highly recommend this heart rate monitor!!

Great way to get in shape, lacking one essential featureFeb 20, 2008
This watch makes it easy to do zone training - exercising so that your heart is in one particular "zone" (a percentage of your maximum heart rate). For example - if you are exercising in Zone 3 (70-80% of maximum heart rate) you will get 3 points for every minute exercised and the idea is to accumulate a certain number of points per week. The watch tells you how much total time you exercised, and how much time you spent in your target zone. It doesn't tell you how much time you spent in any other zone or for that matter, points accumulated per exercise - two data points that would have made it much easier to follow the zone training suggested in the manual provided with the watch. Given all the data the watch provides, it would have been trivial to provide these data points as well and it's really beyond me why Timex didn't bother. Seriously guys - time to hire product managers with a functional brain. The heart sensor is, as far as I can tell, pretty accurate and the watch is easy to read. The heart monitor strap can be uncomfortable - being a guy I have all of a sudden, newfound sympathy to women who decide to burn their bras.

Worth the moneyOct 17, 2007
By The Butcher
I read alot of reviews on heart rate monitors. upon recieving the item I took it out of the box and followed the directions. It was easy and simple. It comes with the chest strap. As the instructions suggest I ran my finger under tap water. With my finger (after it was wet) rubbed it on the monitor and put on the strap. It worked withing 30 seconds and conitinued to monitor my heart rate in real time. Works like a champ.

Timex T5H881 Trainer Digital Heart Rate MonitorNov 03, 2009
By C. Cook
First of all, the delivery was a day or 2 sooner than expected. I spent allot of time on line researching heart monitors before purchasing. I wanted to make sure I purchased a heart rate monitor that would work in an athletic club, i.e. spin class, therefore the Digital monitor was the way to go. I also wanted the monitor to be easy to use and read. I had it narrowed down between the Pulsar and the Timex, as both appeared to be Digital and easy to use. I chose the Timex due to the fact that you can change the batteries yourself vs. sending it back to the manufacturer. I have used the watch about 5 days/week during exercise including running, biking and even group classes in the gym. It has worked great! I am very happy with the purchase.
