Women's Heart Rate Monitor

women's heart rate monitorMost of the major heart rate monitor companies have models that are aimed at women. In some cases these might have slightly modified features, to adjust for women's bodies, which of course are generally smaller and shaped differently to those of men. However, often the difference is simply one of style, with a women's heart rate monitor presented in bright colors and a splashy design.

Here are several examples:

* Polar F6 Women's Heart Rate Monitor Watch (picture)

Polar is a leader in heart rate monitor technology, and the F6 is one of its most popular models. A very favorable review is at the About.com: Exercise website:

If you're looking for a heart rate monitor that does more than just display your heart rate, but isn't so high-end that you'd have to get a second mortgage to pay for it, the Polar F6 is an excellent choice.

The F6 has a variety of functions, from tracking heart rate and workout intensity to calculating calories burned and time spent in each zone. It's easy to use, comes at a decent price and is offered in different sizes and colors, making it both comfortable and stylish.

* Mio Breeze Petite Women's Heart Rate Monitor Watch

Mio specializes in cheap, strapless monitors. Here is an enthusiastic customer review from Amazon.com:

This is the perfect heart rate monitor for women. It is hard to find an accurate strapless heart rate monitor watch, but this is as good as any, without the expensive price tag. It's easy to take your heart rate even while running. Petite really does mean petite, and is stylish enough to wear every day. Don't buy an overpriced version when this is perfect. Highly recommended!

* Sportline Solo 920W Women's Heart Rate Monitor Watch

Sportline, like Mio, tends to make fairly basic devices that it sells cheaply. Here is a customer review of the Solo 920W:

This heart rate monitor is the first one I've ever owned or purchased so I have nothing to compare it to but I bought it because it was inexpensive so I figured if I didn't like it, I would not be out too much money. As soon as I got it, I put it on my boyfriend to see if the thing even worked. I chose to put it on him because I know his resting heart rate because he'd just been to the doctor. It was right-on.

I noticed that, on myself, the heart rate fluttered back and forth a bit when I moved from a seated position to standing and walking around. I'm not sure if this is normal. It seems very sensitive to movement, which I am guessing is a good thing. While working out, it is very comfortable. It fits right under my sports bra and the strap extends far out to accommodate a larger frame. At times, I noticed the heart rate dropped while I was working out but it was just due to my position at the time and it went right back up as soon as the sensor was touching the correct spot. No problem there.

The best part of this monitor is that it tells you how many calories you burned at the end of your workout, so cool. It makes me want to work out even more so I can see that result. The buttons are easy to use and programming your age, gender, and weight is very easy. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to monitor their heart rate while working out and especially to those who want to get that immediate calorie burn feedback!
