I’ve been thinking lately about getting a heart monitor that I can wear whenever I’m doing anything strenuous. But I’m having the same problem that I had with wanting to get a device that monitors your sleep – how do you know which one is good?
I read a ton of reviews, but part of the issue is that I don’t want to wear something that has a belt across your chest, and how am I supposed to figure out which one works if it’s just a wrist thing. Plus they’re really expensive, especially for something that may or may not work.
I don’t think that walking, even for long distances, would really get my heart rate up into any kind of dangerous territory. But it seems worth it for other exercise, which I need to do so that I can build up my strength.
