I have been using this pedometer for a couple of days and it keeps resetting itself. The light is a nice idea, but the button to turn it on is right on the top, where you press when you are putting it on or adjusting it. Also, you have to have a screwdriver to remove the clip in order to change the batteries...kind of inconvenient, but not that big of a deal. And, today it stopped working for a bit. And, it's loud...when it is working you can hear it every time you take a step. I'm returning it and will look for a better quality one.
So, I've had this watch a few weeks and waited to review until now. I'm using this watch for fitness. I love this watch. It's reliable and durable. The strap is very comfortable. In response to those who have written that the nodules pop off of the strap, I can only guess that they may have been a little rough on the strap. Now, it does have a tricky catch to help it stay in place, so I could see how it would break if you yank it ... however, if you pay attention, you'll be fine.
The watch itself is very comfortable as well. I definitely suggest turning off the top of the hour chime to conserve battery life. If you're thinking about buying it, do it--it offers the same features as other much more expensive watches at a fraction of the cost. And to boot, it looks good and fits well for a woman's wrist.
I have had a [...] heart rate monitor for years (5+) and after 2 battery changes, the watch battery is dead again and the chest strap broke. So I did a lot of research in search of a new heart rate monitor, which I find to be a great motivator to get me to work out consistently and at the right intensity to meet my weight loss goals. I wanted a monitor that would work reliably but also look good and not be too bulky. I had it narrowed down to the[...] but when I saw the New Balance N4 for women, I just loved the look more. Not knowing too much about it and after reading the few reviews I was able to find about it, I decided to take a chance and bought it. I have loved it from day 1! It is easy to program, easy to use, good looking, comfortable and reliable. My biggest concern was interference; I used to have some issues with my [...] with interference from my [mp3]. This was not the case here. The N4 continues to provide consistent readings while I wear my iPhone and the readings were also picked up by the hi-tech workout equipment at my local gym. The watch looks good by itself so it's like getting 2 products in one. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to purchase a heart rate monitor.
This heart rate monitor does everything! It tells you when and how long you are in the fat burning zone, calories burned, timer, alarm, regular watch. And the face is large so you can see the info while working out. In this price range, it is the best. Not complicated at all!!
I bought the stopwatch and was surprised when a few days later I found the faceplate had shrunk and pulled off the stopwatch. [...]
[manufacturer] was kind enough to send a replacement and acknowledged that the faceplate will shrink when exposed to heat.
It was 93 degrees in Phoenix over the weekend... something tells me they will need to send out a lot replacements.
