Question: Heart Rate Monitor/pedometer

I recently bought myself a Garmin Heart Rate monitor watch with a strap that goes around my body and a pedometer that I have to attach to me training shoes.The watch shows my heart rate,distance and calories burned and I was wondering how accurate it is?

Answer

Hi there Tiaan!
Many reviews list this product as highly accurate, though I cannot speak of its accuracy without monitoring you myself. Many reports post an important reminder to wet the contacts for an accurate reading. You can use water, or simply rub some spit on in a pinch, but popular recommendations are to swing by a running store and getting a bottle of gel as it renders more accurate readings.
