Dynamics has a wide selection
Q. What is BPM?
A. BPM (heart rate) is the number of heart beats per minute.
Q. What is the maximum heart rate?
A. Maximum heart rate is the highest number of times your heart can contract in one minute. The Only accurate way to determine your true maximum heart rate is by means of a stress test. Maximum heart rate is the most important tool to determine training intensities. To estimate on maximum heart rate, use the following formula:
220 - your age = maximum heart rate (MHR)
Q. What is recovery heart rate and what does it mean?
A. Recovery heart rate is the rate that your heart rate has decreased (towards your resting heart rate) at the end of your work out. Recovery heart rate is usually used as a fitness indicator; the faster your heart rate decreases the better shape your body is in.
Q. What is target heart rate zone and how can I determine mine?
A. Your target heart rate zone is the minimum and maximum BPM your heart should beat during exercise. it is recommended that one exercise within 65% to 85% of your maximum heart rate. Here are two simple formula for determining your target zone.
MHR x 65 - 75% = Light to Moderate
The Light to Moderate Intensity Zone best suits a beginner exerciser, sedentary or overweight.
The Moderate to Heavy Intensity Zone suits
the fitness enthusiast who is looking to improve their fitness level.
Q. How can I find out more information about target zone training and the benefits of training with a heart rate monitor?
A. You could take a look at the book "Heart Zone Training" by Edwards. You will learn more about your heart rate monitor and how to exercise efficiently, safely and effectively.
Q. Are Sensor Dynamics' heart rate monitors industry-compatible?
A. We use 5K Hertz frequency to carry heart rate signals from chest transmitters to wristwatches. The transmitter and watch are interchangeable with most major brands on the market.
Q. What is the difference between Pulse Meters (CardioPacer) and Heart Rate Monitors?
A. CardioPacer measures blood flow rate in the finger with a photoelectric (infrared light) sensor. it translates changes in blood flow into a "beats per minutes" reading Heart Rate Monitors, which are much more accurate, use electrodes worn on the chest to count the number of signals that the brain tells the heart to beat. Study has shown that our heart rate monitor is equivalent to an EKG machine in accuracy.
Q. Is it possible to use the heart rate monitors while swimming or while doing other water sports?
A. Yes, you can. Our integrated transmitters and watches are water resistant to 20 meters. this transmitter is the only true 100% waterproof unit on the market that has serviceable battery compartment. However, you should avoid pressing watch buttons while under water.
Q. I have questions concerning using the heart rate monitor. Who should I talk to?
A. Contact Sensor Dynamics at 1-800-764-HEART (1-800-764-4328)
