Rated 4 out of 5 by Geary Marks A good watch to have if the chest straps don't work for you
I went through 2 watches that use chest straps and neither one worked for me. After all the good reviews they got I was a little concerned. I found that those of us with a slight heartbeat abnormality could have this problem.
This Sportline watch was a good solution for me. While I can't use it while walking on the treadmill (I have to stop and check) it does provide a good service to me during bike rides where I don't even have the heart rate checks that most treadmills provide these days.
Yesterday on a treadmill at a popular fitness club I got wrong readings but the watch was still giving me good data to use.

It's difficult to use, especially while running. It is remarkably inaccurate in measuring speed and distance. It's just completely useless. I wouldn't pay 70 cents for it, let alone 70 dollars.

I was extremely disappointed with this watch, the only feature that works is the time. Found it impossible to set any of the features because the time allowed to set was only a second or two. I bought it to use as a heart rate monitor, was never able to use that. Went to a running store and bought another watch. Do not purchase this watch.

The pedometer counts steps when you're sitting still, the light doesn't stay on long enough to read your heart rate if running outside at dusk. Overall poor product.

Instructions were a bit lacking. But with a little effort on my part got it working. It operates flawlessly doing multiple functions. I need to know my heart rate during cardio rehab and it is a snap to get a reading, times my walk along with steps and distance. It does all I expected. Great. Product

Rated 4 out of 5 by JBMSU83 This product is amazingly accurate
For the first six months of this year I worked out every day and really watched what I was eating, resulting in a loss of 25 pounds. Running a 5k race this summer and white water rafting, with no issues what-so-ever, allowed me to believe that I was in great shape at age 51. Much to my surprise (and everyone elses) while relaxing in a lake, I had a heart attack followed by emergency open heart surgery for a double by-pass. Currently three days per week are spent in cardiac rehab at a local hospital. I bought this monitor because it did not require a chest strap, a feature that was a must for me. I am constantly monitored by two nurses during my re-hab sessions. One on the exercise floor and one staring at a monitor screen indicating my heart rate as recorded by electrodes. It is impressive that when I check the rate diplayed on my Sportline Solo 925 Heart Rate Monitor, it is within one beat per minute of the monitors being used by the cardiac care nurses at the hospital! It has numerous other features, but the accuracy of my heart rate to ensure I am working in my "Target Zone" is the most important to me. Never underestimate the value of your health, this is a great product to help you manage it. The slight negative comment about it is that due to the many features, it can be a little cumbersome to program some of the advanced settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dragon Multifunction watch for daily use
This watch is a good multifunction watch for daily use for those that have busy life. Easy to operate and very light weight, can't even tell you are actually wearing it. I mainly use it to keep my heart rate monitor, will be using it more when I start my exercise on treadmill and cycling...... Aside from hard to strap using one hand, watch is a good product......they may want to think about using different type of buckle type for easy on/off using one hand. I give 4.75 out of 5......

Rated 5 out of 5 by new heart great for people who want simplicity
As an older person, I needed a monitor that could give me immediate data. This is both simple and efficient and just what I needed.
