A definite buy over Polar
It is easy to setup, the books are step by step, after about 30 minutes of playing with it and everything customized and to my liking. The watch & HRM straps are generously long for an average sized woman and I do not feel the HRM strap when I am working out.
My only additional comment is; though its advertised as a unisex watch, my husband would never choose to ware it. Its small and too feminine looking, but works wonderfully as a ladies watch and perfect for me!
Mending a broken heart with a pulse watch.
My cardiac rehab nurses recommended Timex as a good choice in pulse meters among an extensive list. They recommended a less sophisticated and less expensive model. I did some research and chose the T5J983. I am glad that I did.
The watch has all the features of much higher priced models: multiple zone settings and warnings, lap timers, superb stop watch technology and excellent digital communication between chest band and watch. In addition, the Indiglo feature allows the watch to be read in any light or no light.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied. The watch performed as I expected. The band is as comfortable as I imagine a chest strap can be. For the price, it is an great buy.
Great Buy, Great HRM
With a 44″ chest, the transmitter is tight, but not uncomfortably so. It blends in with the feeling of my sports bra and I forget I even have it on. There is still some play in the elastic so it could probably fit someone a little larger.
The watch/receiver is not so big as to be masculine, but I wouldn’t consider it feminine either. Unisex is a good term for it, but if you have a large wrist, I can see where it would look smaller and more dainty. I (5’8″) have the same size wrist as my dad (5’7″) and even my boyfriend (6’1″) can wear it without it looking too small. So to say “men wouldn’t want to wear it” isn’t really fair. If you have a medium to small wrist/hand, it will look proportional. If you have a large wrist (man or woman), it is going to look petite.
With my experience so far, Timex will be at the top of the list when I decide to buy another HRM.
awesome and accurate
the chest strap is comfortable, and after about a minute i forget its there. the watch strap is pretty long though, i have a small wrist and i have it set 1 notch below the smallest setting. if you have smaller then 6″ wrist you may need to pop another hole in the band.
the design is cute, not something i’d wear all day long but perfect for the gym and other physical activities. great amount of technology for such a small price.
about 2 years later i needed to replace the batteries in both the chest strap and the watch. no big deal. The chest strap was really easy to change out but the watch itself not so much. by the time i got the thing back in and all the screws in one of the buttons no longer worked. would be worth paying the few bucks to take it to a pro to have the battery replaced because now i need to buy another one.
It works and it’s easy, just read the manual
I am not giving it 5 stars because I have seen reviews of it failing within 6 months and I might just change my mind in 6 months. Just to keep in mind, POLAR hrm will transmit in average for a year if you use it daily, so I don’t expect my battery to last over a year but I do expect the hrm to keep working as I change batteries.
