Review: Sportline S12 heart rate monitor (part 2)

Posted Jan 01 2009 12:00am

*Note: I am reviewing this item in two parts. Part 1 is after day 1 of use. Part two will be after 2 weeks of use)

Sportline S12

Walmart (I believe this is a Walmart only item)

$38.77

Clock (time/date), heart rate zone monitor, resting heart rate tracking, alarm, chronograph, timer, dual time zone clock, pedometer, workout timer, calorie counter, distance calculator, speed (mph) calculator

Well, here is part two of my review of the sportline s12 heart rate monitor.

It is with great disappointment that I share that I will be returning this device tomorrow. During the 5k I ran on Saturday, after about 1.25 miles, the watch just sorta… reset. It suddenly had a new date, new time, wiped all of my step, milage, and distance data. HALF WAY THROUGH MY RACE. I was livid.

There isn’t any particular reason to draw my review out longer, it just didn’t do what it needed to do, when I needed it to do it.

(on another note, I’m not sure it was entirely acurate as a HRM, calories burned tracker, or distance keeper. Even with specific measurements of my stride, it was occasionally -inexplicably- off.)

Sorry, sportline… I really, REALLY wanted to like it.
