Why do you think it's been sitting on the table gathering dust? Read through the back threads and you'll see that I'm miffed about having to pay 16 to change a battery!

10 secs is accurate enough for the medical profession... besides, your resting heart rate will increase after 15secs.

rob, thats because GPS just need a general reading of your pulse. Anyway the GPs I've known either use the wrist method or, more commonly, the machine that takes blood pressure and HR at the same time.

BUT....for training purposes an increase of 5-10 beats a minute of your RHR could mean you are either ill or over-trained.....and therefore advised to take a rest day or an easy training day. And THAT is why you need an accurate reading Baldrick.

And yes it will go down (or up, depending on the situation) within the next minute.....which is why you should use a HRM which takes it within a split second and shouldnt give an error.

But if your heart rate is in 30s <rubs chin> then maybe you are superhuman enough not to have to worry.....

Well, if my HR at work (measured over 30secs) is 52, rising to 58 on the train, it's not really a stretch of the imagination to a 38 RHR....

I suppose now you'll say that I can't count or can't read time - I know you like arguing but you're taking the P now! Wink
