Pros and Cons
The target heart rate zone is a very beneficial feature that helps to keep level with the required training regime.
It picks up your heart rate quickly and provides an accurate reading.
It is easy to use and the buttons are easy to work with.
The chest strap is very comfortable to wear and the ability to change the battery on it is an added bonus.
Reading of the display can be done only at a certain angle. One user found that the INDIGLO backlight is not very strong, making it difficult to read the display in the dark.
Replacing the battery is rather difficult and requires professional help because of the small screws and seal.
The chest strap is rather small, so if you have a larger chest then it might not fit you.
The watch itself has a rather bulky profile so the design is more suited to men than women despite it being marketed as a unisex watch.
The Timex T5H911 is an excellent training tool for those individuals who engage in vigorous workouts and need to monitor their health as well as fitness routine for improvement.
The watch is good looking and stylish, but is more suitable for men than women due to its rather bulky design.
In terms of value for money, this watch is outstanding with its advanced feature set ranging from zone training to calorie tracking. The Timex T5H911 gets the thumbs up from Heart Rate Monitor Reviews.
