Hi, Coach! I'm looking for a good, mid-price range Heart Rate Monitor.  Do you still feel the 3 listed here are great options?  Are there any other good HRM's that you've run across since you made this post a few years ago?  I have a buddy that loves his FitBit HR.  Do you have any experience with those?

Thank you, again, for all your help!

Hey Coach. I bought the Timex Ironman HRM and have some concerns about the accuracy of its calorie burn. For PAP Upper, it said I burned about 883 calories and for Yoga X, it says I burned 991. I mean, I really "brought it" during each workout and gave it my all but those numbers seem high. I am 6'0ft, 202lbs, and about 12% BF.

Sorry, saw your post to Jeremy after the post. Will I lose the most weight possiable in the 160 - 170 zone because someone told me it was to high.

I have the same HRM as you what zone do you set yours to? I seem to be in zone 5 for Plyo so that is were I keep it.

Hey Coach - Can you expand a little bit on the concept of "the zone"? In several of the P90X workouts, Tony asks "are you in the zone??", yet there is no detail I can find in any of the P90X literature that clearly lays out which of the 4 zones I should be in or aiming for. I realize the zones are all based on age & fitness level, but which of the 4 zones is the exclusive "ZONE" Tony mentions so much? I've been wearing my HR monitor and its great info to have regarding calorie burn, but I'm clueless on whether or not I'm in "Tony's Zone." Thank you, Jeremy, Seattle

Hey Coach Wayne I've been looking into getting an Ironman Road Trainer, but I've read a lot of reviews saying they are unreliable or inaccurate. Just wondering if you've had any issues with yours? Right now they have the Ironman Road Trainer T5K212 for about $65.oo on Amazon. Not sure if this is the same one you have, but it does have a chest strap and sounds pretty good. Thanks Coach.

Coach Wayne, I am on day 3 of P90X, and I am looking for the best/most accurate heart rate monitor for the money. My major concern is one that gives accurate calorie burn info. Thanks

Hi Coach, Which one do you use/recommend? I bought a strapless one on Amazon and it works for about 10 minutes and then stops. As soon as I build up a little sweat, I can't get a reading. I really want a good one that will last throughout my workout and give me a good HR and Cal Count reading. Thanks, John

Can you wear this all day and it still track your calorie burn? Or is it only good if you are working out hard?
