Repost: Heart Rate Monitor Comparison

Last year at this time, I was trying to post an article everyday. I guess we know how that went!


So… for the first TriRiot blog post of 2021 A.C. [1], I’m going to point you to a YouTube video and another web page. How’s that for shirking responsibility?

But here’s a little background anyway.


A Little Background

I use a chest strap heart rate monitor. I’m not sure exactly how it works but I think it has something to do with electrical impulses associated with heart beats. Recently, I purchased an optical arm band heart rate monitor. I don’t know how it works either, but I have had my doubts about the accuracy of the optical type for some time. The benefit is that it doesn’t chafe like the chest strap.


Because of my doubts, I performed a little experiment to see if the monitors produced similar results.
