I love this strap-free heart rate monitor. Sometimes the optical wrist-based heart rate monitor can't measure quite that accurate especially when we're running so that's why something like a chest heart rate monitor is gonna be something you should look to, especially if you're a runner or you're doing heart rate training. Running with a strap all the time when I do heart rate training it does get a little bit restrictive you kind of feel the pressure around your body. Sometimes I get pretty annoying about it. It's good to have a strapless heart rate monitor when training.
Hope this video helps!!

The device works as advertised, but I have realized I misread the specifications... I thought the device recorded EKG strips for 24 hours, but it only records heart rates for 24 hours. Too bad... I am a cardiologist and a device that would record and memorize 24h EKG strips would have come very handy. Alternatively, something that would work as an event recorder. This is a device that has an event button and the option to set some alarm parameters on. Then the device records 30" tracings and if the parameters on those 30" are not outside the set limits and the event button is not pressed, the recording is discarded to save memory. If the event button is pressed, the 30" tracing is stored and the following 30" will be recorded too. Eventually only the relevant tracings will be stored (when the event button is pressed and whatever is outside the set limits). Something like that would be very useful.
I have no complaints about how well the VisualBeat monitor works. I've been using it a lot and it's giving me useful information. The monitor sensor does need to be recharged frequently. One thing I would definitely want to be different and that would be to have an app available for a Windows based PC, to download the data from the monitor sensor after a ride. I want the data on my laptop and the only way I can do that is to download the monitor on my Android tablet, photograph the screen of my tablet and then transfer the jpeg image to my PC. This sucks!
Ordered this product after my procedure to monitor the heart while I sleep. I brought this to my doctor s visit, and he was definitely sold on its accuracy and asked where he could find it so that he could recommend this unit to other patients. The interface is very pleasing and very easy to use!
I use other products from Wellue and am very happy with them. Tried this one since I was looking for a heart rate monitor to track heart rate during workout. This product does that and also provides a history graph so you can see not just current rate but how it changed during the workout... it also has an added bonus of being able to show and record ECG tracing. I charged it fully and it was easy to put on. The heart rate monitor seems pretty accurate and is non-obtrusive. It stays in place whether jogging, rowing, etc. Very good information to help me work out better and see how my heart rate trends are improving as I get in shape! It uses the same app as other Wellue products, so no new app to install, and all data is in one place. I highly recommend this product.
Accurate enough for training, best results for cycling and elliptical. As mentioned by other people large arms movements or body for sure will affect the reading, but it`s normal. Keep in mind medical effort EKG test uses sticker electrodes. Useful to detect heart "misfiring" . Usually I`m recording one minute when start the training, another one at max effort, and a last one when finished the work out. Email them as pdf . Check and save them for reference. Decent battery, but time will tell.
I would like to be able to send the full 30M ecg report
I find it to be extremely accurate (Unlike my fitness watch) which I confirm by comparing the blinking LED to my actual heartbeats from time to time.
I use it every day while on the elliptical.

The monitor is excellent with the option of using it with a chest band or without. I really wish the app can give further data like HR recovery and variability. I wold love the ability to export data as an excel file rather tan as a screenshot with an ability to annotate the chart with the exercise done.
