Hi all.

I bought a used treadmill and found out when I go it home that unfortunately the pulse meter doesn't work.

What can I get to measure my pulse rate?

I saw a couple of watches a while ago but thay were quite pricey, can anyone recommend something good I can use that isn't over expensive?

Thank yous x

I IZ BAD RAPPY

They are on some pedometers

Heart Rate monitors fall in to 2 basic categories - those that measure your heart rate continuously & those that measure your heart rate only when you put your finger/s on a pad.

Personally I use the first type, as when I'm running or rowing I don't really want to stop while I find out what my heart rate is. However, the second type are usually cheaper.

Try this page for ideas (but look around to see if you can buy cheaper elsewhere):

use a watch (or the clock on teletext if you believe accuracy is a big deal in these matters) and count.
