  2. ajoemar2009 says

    Hello,am just asking does strapless heart rate also effective? or should i really get w/ the strap as demonstrated.
    pls advice. thanks

  3. I’m 34 years old, based on the calculations you gave for a save zone of (60 to 80%), I would love to know is 147 right for the 0.8 heartrate range? I have the s7 heart monitor watch and it says that at 167 I’m using 80% which is the max save zone, so when I’m working out should I say within 167 or 147?

  4. thanks

    @bodies42099 i agree…steroid users hearts are fucked…they have to have heart operations after long term use of roids..this guy is a joke..

  6. giannicoppola says

    220- age is not a reliable maximum heart rate formula

  7. bodies42099 says

    why would you choose to put an absolute meathead as the tester lol? put a runner or cyclist in it who actually know what their doing.

  12. Very good accurate information. We intend to include this video on our hrm watch website.

    62 is a good resting heart rate. However, your not resting 😛 your talking.

    Your heart rate would be much lower, you have a good heart!
