IN SYNC WITH THE HEART
Timex has come up with a new wrist watch capabe of measuring heartbeats. This can be done by placing the left index finger on the back of the watch along with the right index finger on the metal top ring. Within a few seconds, the watch displays the heart rate in beats per minute. When in static position, it takes only a few seconds to read the rating.
However, while on a workout or running, one needs to slow down a bit for the watch to be able to read the rating. On the back of the box, details such as age, maximum heart rate and most effective heart rate zone in BPM have been mentioned. Water resistant up to 50 metres, this watch comes with two-year battery life. But the Timex Health Touch isn’t really a new concept, as Casio has had a similar watch in the market for years.
