Heart rate monitors are a fantastic way to assess an individual’s cardiac response to various types of training. A heart rate monitor estimates heart rate based on a complex algorithm. Most heart rate monitors are either strapped to the chest or around the wrist, transmitting captured data to a receiver. Both types offer great accuracy, but because they are placed physically closer to the heart, chest straps are generally considered to be more reliable. Heart rate monitors allow the trainer to monitor intensity and provide feedback to ensure the client is training within the appropriate heart rate levels to achieve specific fitness goals.
