We're preparing to test our next batch of fitness trackers and smartwatches, some of which include an inbuilt heart rate monitor. More and more brands seem to be adopting this feature, so we're looking to see how important this feature is to you, when considering your next fitness band purchase. This will ensure our research provides relevant information for our members.
So, Choice Community members who are interested in fitness bands or smartwatches, could you take a few minutes to answer this questionnaire, if you own a fitness tracker, or are considering purchasing one. Please note that our questions only concern the inbuilt heart rate monitor.
Does your fitness tracker have a heart rate monitor?
Do you use the heart rate monitor in your fitness tracker?
How important do you consider a heart rate monitor on your fitness tracker? (1 being the least important, 10 the most important)
Do you use the heart rate monitor all the time (such as when counting steps or completing daily tasks) or only during scheduled exercise periods?
- All the time
- For exercise only
If a heart rate monitor is important to you, please tell us why in the comments. We're also interested in any general comments you have about fitness trackers, so please add them below.
