Boasting a slender, lightweight design made specifically for women, the Reebok Fitwatch all-in-one heart rate monitor/sports watch uses patented “pulse technology” to measure the electrical pulses sent out by your heart each time it beats. As a result, it’s easy to track your heart rate during workouts without wearing an uncomfortable chest strap. All you have to do is touch the sensors on the watch, and within four seconds you’ll receive not only an accurate heart rate reading, but also the number of calories burned thus far. The monitor also offers a programmable heart rate zone indicator that boasts audible and visual alarms for when you’re veering outside the zone, along with another alarm that alerts when you’re nearing your maximum rate. Made from durable, water-resistant plastic, the device also offers several regular watch functions, plus a 100-hour stopwatch and countdown timer. The Fitwatch comes with a complete walking and exercise guide and a one-year warranty.

About Reebok
Reebok’s United Kingdom-based ancestor company was founded for one of the best reasons possible: athletes wanted to run faster. So, in the 1890s, Joseph William Foster made some of the first known running shoes with spikes in them. By 1895, he was in business making shoes by hand for top runners, and before long his fledgling company–J.W. Foster and Sons–developed an international clientele of distinguished athletes. In 1958, two of the founder’s grandsons started a companion company that came to be known as Reebok, named for an African gazelle.

    The watch is okay except the calorie counter is not accurate. You only enter your age and sex, no weight. The heart rate seems to be accurate, but it does not read when you are in the middle of excercise. I really wanted a watch that had the heart rate monitor and an accurate calorie counter. I’ve returned this watch to Amazon after a few uses and have purchased a different brand.

    I got this primarily to measure heart rate. It does show the heart rate, at 81, a minute later 72, then 85, down to 69, etc. It is inconsistent to the point that you can’t trust the reading.

    I have tried two other heart rate watches (you can look at my other reviews) and this is my favorite (also less expensive). I like the pink color a lot. It is about the same accuracy as the others (off anywhere from 1-4 beats a minute (always lower) from the machines’ readings, but fairly consistent,and great to have when the machines pulse reader dies). It reads faster than the other two watches, within four seconds. I have not had problems with it not giving a reading, even when at 150 or above.

    They are smaller than the other watches I bought, and thus much more feminine. The readings are almost as easy to see as the larger watches, and quite sufficient. It didn’t take long to set up using the manufacturers instructions, and easy to remember so you don’t have to look anything up again. It only took me a few minutes to get it all set, and no refresher course to reset things. I like the timer feature, and find it easy to use to time exercises at the gym. I set it to 45 seconds; I just push a couple of buttons and in 45 seconds it beeps at me. It is not a complex watch, which I like.

    The first watch I received did not work, so I did what the packaging recommended and called Reebok themselves. They quickly sent me out a new watch after I e-mailed them my receipts. They accidentally sent out a blue replacement, but made up for it by letting me keep that one and sent me out the correct pink one. Both the blue and pink work quite well, and both look nice (but I just like the girlie pink one better).

    I would give it a five star if it were just a tad more accurate, but knowing that it always reads around two beats lower, I just compensate.

    Don’t be afraid to order if you have a large wrist. Mine measures 6 1/2 inches and I have two notches left.

    I like this watch overall, the color, the look and its functions too. The heart rate monitor was pretty accurate to my standard. The only reason I give it a 2 star is because my watch broke down just a few months after I purchased it. Well…actually less than 20 times…since I didn’t go to the gym very often. It happened when I pressed down on the buttons, and one of them just never came back up. So it was making a continous beeping noise all the way driving home. I tried to fix it but ended up taking the batteries out and had to throw it away.

    This is simply a terrific little watch that does exactly what I want it to do. It works perfectly and is very consistent in reading heart rate and calories burned. I’m very satisfied!
