If you’ve followed me on Facebook, I’ve mourned my recent weight gain. Yet, I have no one to blame but myself. Two months ago, my husband decided to start P90X and invited me to join him. I wasn’t ready for that kind of commitment, and said, “No Way,” but now I really regret that. He looks amazing. He’s lost weight and inches, as I watched from afar. During the last few weeks, he’s been using this heart monitor and now it’s being passed around to all the guys in my family.
As my husband and teen boys work out, the DUO 1060 Speed & Distance Heart Rate Monitor ($119.99) provides a constant tracking of their heart rate, speed, strides, and distance. It’s truly fascinating. You can track improvement, and once I determine, enough is enough, I’ll use the feature to see how many calories you have burned.
Whether your husband is training for a marathon, your father has begun a light exercise regiment, or your grandfather is concerned about his health, Sportline has a heart rate monitor for all ages and stages of health.
The DUO 1060 offers the most advanced technology allowing for continuous and on-demand heart rate monitoring, and digital pedometer functionality to calculate strides, distance and speed.
Various Watch Functions Include:
Time: time, date, month, day, 12 or 24 hour watch, daily alarm clock, and dual time zones.
Heart Rate: use your finger to touch the watch and test your rate or use the strap that comes in the kit, workout memory, personalized heart rate zone alert, calorie consumption, etc.
Timer: sound alarm, times up to 23 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds
Chronograph: lap/split memory recall, up to 100 laps, times up to 23 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds
Pedometer: measure strides, time, distance, and speed
