Welcome to Heart Rate Monitor UK
The main aim of this website is simple – to provide impartial reviews of consumer products that incorporate heart rate monitoring technology. In depth product reports of the latest fitness trackers, running watches, wearable tech smartwatches and GPS bike computers. I have tested over 120 fitness products from leading brands including Polar, Mio, Suunto, Garmin, Fitbit and TomTom.
You can also find reviews of many popular medically related cardiac health products (from user’s perspective, not clinical accuracy). This includes portable ECG machines, blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters and fetal doppler monitors (for baby’s heart rate).
NEWS FLASH >> Mio release their innovative new Slice. The Mio Slice is the world’s first fitness band to incorporate a PAI score (Personal Activity Intelligence) based on heart rate throughout the day
Every month I review the latest heart rate watches from the leading brands. Whenever possible I take photographs and also make a short 10 minute video of the product. My objective is to give a potential owner a clear idea of what the watch offers, how it works and it’s main pros and cons. Here’s the latest online reviews.
Polar M600 – A great GPS running watch with wrist based heart rate. A true wearable tech sport watch powered by Android Wear giving access to hundreds of great apps including Strava & Google Maps.
Fitbit Charge 2
Fitbit Charge 2 – Everything the original Fitbit Charge HR had with the benefit of a larger & brighter display. The Charge HR was a great performer, this one is better. Wrist based Heart Rate
TomTom Spark 3
TomTom Spark 3 – One of the easiest to use and best value for money GPS running watches available. The Spark 3 (Runner 3) is an activity tracker, running watch that stores over 500 songs.
Fitbit Blaze – Prefer your activity tracker watch to be regular size then the Fitbit Blaze could be for you. Beautifully made, clear bright colour display, off the wrist heart rate & motivating Fitstar app.
And Finally …
Here’s a few more areas of the website that I hope you may find useful. For people with medical concerns the fitness products we review are NOT recommended. For this reason we have an area of heart rate monitoring devices with medical approval. There’s also our online HR calculators that can help in determining your optimal HR training zones. And finally, if you’re still confused then please use the Ask Tristan form to get my personal opinion and recommendation.
