As long as it works as it should, this is a no brainer surely

Had two of these HRM ended up dying before the year was out. Both had issues of staying alive even with new batteries put in. Gave up and bought a Polar instead which has been through everything so far including the wash.

If it ends up dying then you have the advantage of a 3 yr warranty surely? Incidentally how did you find the functions?

My mate has had the same one for 3 yrs and it is still going strong.

Well personal experience - Had one and it does not work most of the time. Intermittent response. I could have medical issues I guess, or maybe it just didn't work properly - whereas my prev Sigma unit worked just fine.

Warranty only really good if you retain receipts, for once I misplaced mine

Functions and screen not too bad, did like a little but no way as intuitive or graphical as my Polar which I I have the added feature of being able to upload data to the website for analysis but we are talking about a jump in price though; worth it if you are keen to monitor your exercise.

Would I have another.....No based on two out of two failing and being unreliable in reading too. The Aldi HRM I had previously lasted longer but the last Obstacle run killed that X)

i had two of these and they were way out with accuracy unfortunately

Agree with simplyjimbo
Bought a couple of these, very unreliable, setting up is a pain, buttons very clicky and unresponsive,
Sometimes when you press a button, nothing happens or presses twice,
Keeps losing heart signal
Not accurate at all
Absolute waste of money
I now use burer and polar, both perform faultlessly

How did you test them for accuracy? I only ask as I have previously owned a Crane HRM which is the ALDI brand and found it's accuracy to be spot on, but broke the strap unfortunately.

They used to bundle a virtually identical HRM with their bike computer....had 2 neither worked!

I've had mine 2/3 years and its been perfect.

They all work the same way, If you don't sweat enough then the HRM cannot do a reading.

Would the strap work with a polar unit? My wonderfully clever girlfriend decided it'd be a good idea to put my strap into the washing machine and then tumble dry it which melted the sensor bit

Why not?
In your experience the product is naff, therefore, even at this price this is not a good deal...you should vote cold to help others

Both had issues of staying alive



So did the BeeGees....oO

Nope, just between the hrm & watch. Have a look for a bluetooth hrm. Can be had for about £20-25 if you have a good look.

rubbish and useless without gps to measure distance.

Care to post one for £12.99? GPS is not needed if you are only after a basic HRM, pointless post.

Some prize **** comments ...:rolleyes:

Nobody , but nobody could expect more - for the money

Have on of those. Never had problems with it. Measure seems accurate too. Note I am an occasional runner. If you want professional equipment you'd need to look on the higher shelf.

If you died before the year was out how did you post your comment oO

And had three year warranty so you should of lasted at least 3 years.

I'd get my money back ( or get someone who's still alive to get it back)

Had two of these, neither worked properly. One decided that my average heart rate was 230! the other fluctuated between 100 - 210 before I had even started running.

Bought the 2017 model from Lidl intermittent at reading the heart rate and reading it correctly, sometimes, just sitting it would read as 180+++ then stop reading. If I touched it, it would start again then stop. I tried moving it so that the sensor was just in front of my left arm and found it would work there but if I move around too much, it looses contact. £12.99 down the drain, Went for the Runtastic one with cost me £3 brand new, only problem is I need to use my phone and it's app but there have been no issues at all with it's chest strap. It's not always a case of 'get what you pay for' it seems.
