IN SYNC WITH THE HEART

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

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.
