In addition to basic functions of a watch like time, date and alarm, this amazing gadget from Nike continuously monitors your heart rate. This it does with the help of a digital chest strap. You need to strap on the chest piece, wear your C8 and off you go. The digital nature of transmission between the chest strap and the receiver in the watch means it cuts down on cross interference with other heart rate users.

Stop watch button to start and stop the workouts adds to the simplicity of use. Furthermore, you get to decide upon the heart rate zone that you will be targeting every time. An alarm sounds every time you happen to stray away from your target heart rate. An exciting feature, the five segment countdown timer, allows for keeping record of different running intervals.

Post exercise analysing gets even easier with the Nike C10 heart rate monitor. You can recall average heart rate, total time, as well as time you spent below the target heart rate. Additionally, it can store information of up to 100 laps.

Customer Reviews

Here''s what customers are saying about the Nike C10 heart monitor watch:

...Personally I like it! Bit fiddly to set up but nice and simple to use when you are out pounding the pavement! Think the slanted display is very handy, practical touch that you don''t fully appreciate till you use the watch in anger. My only grumbles are that it isn’t loud enough with the beeps and alerts and that the interval timer which I don''t think has much practical use as it simply starts all over again?...

...suggested by a friend, this is the first piece of gizmo I have tried out in running. And frankly speaking, I like it immensely. First of all, it''s easy to use, looks great and does what it is meant to do...

...Nice new cosmetics but I''m afraid it has lost its bite. I''ve always played with the various reincarnations but this one just doesn''t cut it anymore...

Get your skin wet

Some problems may be caused by dry skin or exercising in the winter. If it''s hot enough the monitor will begin sending your pulse to the heart monitor watch once you start to sweat. If you don''t sweat a lot, some advocate licking the strap before you start exercising, squirt some water between your skin and the strap or you can use a little heart monitor gel.
