Should using a heart rate monitor for daily exercise?


Heart rate can be a real feedback of the training situation. We usually take weight gain or loss, circumference change, muscle soreness, and degree of sweating as the criteria to judge the fitness effect. But in fact, the optimization of fitness goals should focus more on heart rate index.

To really do heart rate analysis, you need to collect a lot of indicators of training cycles. The heart rate exercise solution establishes the evaluation of training effect on the basis of credible data, allowing the trainers to intuitively and scientifically understand the physical condition. Through the systematic methods of physical evaluation, planning, training process monitoring, effect evaluation and improvement, the closed-loop of “assessment — planning-monitoring — summary” can be realized to improve the fitness efficiency and help the exercisers achieve fitness goals more easily. Better sharing of training process and training results.




The advantage of the heart rate arm is that it is very convenient to use and can record the heart rate anytime and anywhere. The disadvantage is that it is affected by many factors and is not as accurate as the chest band. However, the error of the heart rate arm band is acceptable. If it is used by an amateur runner during a training run, it is also perfectly adequate.

In addition to professional trainers, the use of a heart rate band can also be useful for ordinary people. The heart rate is an accurate indicator of calorie expenditure, and it can improve efficiency in both weight loss and daily exercise. When the heart rate is too high, the exercise is often particularly intense and difficult to adhere to for a long time. The overall exercise time is short and the calories consumed are generally less. Using heart rate data we can take the form of intervals, short periods of intense training, alternating with recovery periods. The great thing about intervals is that they allow you to get as much health benefit as possible in a very short amount of time.




There are many factors for inaccurate heart rate arm measurements, two of which can be avoided.

  1. The arm band should be fitted to the skin: The arm band is elastic. The purpose is to adjust the tightness of the arm band to make it fit to the skin and help accurately record the heart rate when you use it.

  2. The arm band should be placed in the right position: it is best to wear it in the middle of the arm or the upper part of the forearm, and the main body of the arm band should face outward to ensure accurate data collection.

The length of the heart rate band can be adjusted. Too tight a heart rate band will be very uncomfortable to wear, and a loose heart rate band will cause slip and irregular readings (caused by occasional activity of the rubber sensor electrodes on both sides). The correct length takes several attempts, is tight to the skin, and is in a condition that neither slips nor compresses.


Here we introduce a kind of our Fitness Training Heart Rate Monitor — HW807.The armband heart rate monitor offering the latest optical heart rate technology, it can track your heart rate, cadence, steps and other exercise data, it integrated with powerful sensors and advanced algorithm to calculate and keep the accuracy of the exercise data.

Heart rate is one of the most effective and realistic indicators for scientific evaluation of running intensity. It is of great significance for scientific training, improving our sports level and protecting us from injury in sports.
