Oregon Scientific Heart Rate Monitor

Oregon Scientific heart rate monitorOregon Scientific, founded in Portland in 1989, is now a leader in a number of high-tech devices. It has a strong reputation for its heart rate monitors, and at its website it currently lists 10 of these (although at online sales sites such as Amazon.com you will find others).

One of the most popular is the SE300_WM100 monitor (picture). The company's own website lists the price as $179.98, although in late-2009 it was selling at Amazon.com for $75.99.

I have not been able to find online any independent reviews of the SE300_WM100. However, Amazon.com has several customer reviews, and these provide some very useful guidance to the product. Here is one:

Although the manual for the Oregon Scientific SE300 is somewhat difficult to follow - with a little trial and error using all of the functions provide important information about your workout. Get the data logger to be able to review and compare your workouts. Also, use conductive gel to ensure good results. I was not happy with the SE300 until I started using the gel.

And an excerpt from another:

Initially, I wanted one without a chest strap but review after review told me I would get more accurate reads from a chest strap so I caved in and got one. Truth be told, it doesn't bother me in the least.

While the backlight on mine doesn't work as I would hope, I can live without it. The readings seem accurate to me

Best feature? The aerobics machines in my gym (none of which were made by Oregon Scientific) all picked up the heart rate transmitted from my strap. I wasn't expecting that at all and was thrilled to discover it.
