Best Fitness Watches With Heart Rate Monitor

One of the most common trends nowadays whether you like going to the gym or exercise outdoor is to use a fitness watch. Whether your goal is to lift weights or perform cardio be it running, biking and swimming, a fitness watch can be pretty useful as it can track your heart rate, calories burned, speed rate, distance covered and so on.

There are a variety of fitness watches on the market and some do come with heart rate monitor built-in or attached separately to your body ie a chest strap whereas others don't have any monitor at all. Fitness watches that come with a heart rate monitor are the most demanded as this feature is pretty useful. It's important to know that you should exercise between 60-80% of your maximum heart rate, going above 80% might strain your heart too much and is not advisable.

In this article, am going to list what I consider to be some of the best fitness watches with heart rate monitor:

Garmin Vivoactive Black bundle (Includes Heart Rate Monitor)

I have to admit Garmin makes some pretty amazing fitness watches. With the Garmin Vivoactive, it's a huge hit. This watch is sleek and stylish and comes with numerous features and benefits. The display is ultra-thin, high-resolution, sunlight-readable and is color touchscreen. Comes with built-in sports applications that track your stats even when you're away from your phone due to the built-in GPS-enabled running, biking, golfing and swimming. With the accelerometer and wrist-based speed and cadence trackers, there is no need for a separate foot pod whether you're running on a treadmill or an indoor track even when GPS is unavailable. Vibration alerts for heart rate, run/walk intervals and pace can be set up as well.

Polar V800 GPS Sports Watch w/ Activity Tracker & Heart Rate Monitor

Another fitness watch top on my list is the Polar V800 GPS Sports Watch. This is a really high-quality and high-tech watch just judging from the material used. Comes with a Gorilla Glass lens which is scratch-resistant and waterproof to 100 feet. For ambitious runners, triathletes and endurance athletes, you get the heart rate and the multisport training device which is GPS enabled and even better, with the H7 Bluetooth Smart heart rate sensor, you'll get highly precise heart rate.

Garmin Forerunner 225 with Wrist-based Heart Rate

The Forerunner 225 is also one of the top watches from Garmin. Comes with a strapless heart rate functionality as the heart rate monitor is wrist-based and use a built-in sensor to track heart rate at the wrist. This is a great feature for those who don't want to put a strap around their chest to measure heart rate. Thanks to the GPS-enabled and activity tracker, you'll get accurate pace and distance data and be able to count your calories, distance and steps throughout the day. If you've been idle for too long, you'll get a vibration alert from the move bar to motivate you to move.

Garmin Forerunner 920XT Black/Blue Watch with HRM-Run

Last but not least, I have to pick the Garmin Forerunner 920XT because this is definitely a winner and is actually one of the best watches from Garmin. With an array of high-end training features, this watch is sleek and wetsuit-friendly. The color display is high-resolution and it also has flexible hinged bands with watch mode for all day use. With the activity tracker, you'll have a good indication of calories burned, steps and sleep, hence providing you with a complete picture of your day-to-day activities. With the heart rate monitor, you'll get advanced features that can check in your recovery status and your racing potential meaning after an intense activity, you'll get a notification how much time you should wait before attempting another hard effort. I believe this feature is priceless as you don't want to exhaust your heart too much without sufficient rest time.
