Here’s How To Choose A Bike Heart Rate Monitor

There are hundreds of bike heart rate monitors and this makes it hard to choose the right one for you.  I had a difficult time choosing an exercise monitor awhile back.  Each monitor has different feature and some are harder to work with and understand.  You would think that all you need is your heart rate but these new monitors have all kinds of feature.

With all these features, you need a good manual and all monitors have one.  Without it, it makes it difficult to understand how to use it.  If you are exercising to stay fit, then you just need a good quality unit.  So don’t go over board and buy the most expensive one.  You don’t need all of those features.

When considering a bike heart rate monitor, buy a medium price one that has features that you might use in the future.

So how can you determine what you want to buy?  Here are some things to consider:

  • Are you going to collect and store your heart rate over time?
  • What other information will you want to collect other than heart rate?  Will this monitor collect it?
  • Where do you want to wear your monitor?  On your wrist or do you have to wear it on your chest?
  • Can you download your heart data to your computer for storage?
  • Do you need continuous monitoring?

If you decide to buy the chest strap bike heart rate monitor, you will always have to wear it.  This monitor sends information to another device on your wrist or else where.  A digital signal gives you better results. 

If you decide on a chest monitor, you will have to have good contact of its electrodes on your chest to get constant reliable measurement.  These types of monitors may not be good for swimming.

A strapless bike heart rate monitor is placed on your finger or your wrist.  Make sure you buy a medium end monitor, which is calibrated to take measurements like an ECG machine.  Note that strapless devices cannot be used to gather data during your complete workout.  However, you can purchase a combination chest and wrist monitoring device.

When choosing a heart monitor, there are many options to consider.  Many of these options you many not even use.  Here are some options that are useful:

  • Heart rate alarm alerts you when you are above or below your training level.
  • The amount of time you spend in your heart rate zone
  • Gives you information on calories burned
  • Gives you the data on how long it takes the heart to recover from your session.
  • Counter timer for one minute exercises
  • Bike mount for viewing during bike riding

To train properly in bike riding or just to improve your fitness, you definitely need a heart monitor.  Some good monitors are the Garmin, Garmin GPS, Polar, or the Cateye.  Take your time in choosing a good device.  Look at all the features, but don’t buy into one that has more feature than you need.  Once you buy one, try it out right away.  You may not like it, and you may have to return it to the store for another brand.

Live roulette: the advantages of live roulette over a real las vegas casinos

Live Roulette: The Advantages of Live Roulette Over a Real Las Vegas Casinos

The moment the internet went live, the life of the gambler changed forever. The convenience of being able to gamble from your home quickly caught on and making those trips to the casino happened less and less. As time progressed, forum posts and online gaming articles began to question the integrity of the RNG or random number generators and people started heading back to the casinos. Now there is finally a method of online gambling that is just as good, if not better than playing roulette in the casino and it is Live Roulette TV.

If you have not yet heard about Live Roulette TV, it is the latest craze of gambling that literally brings the casino right into your living room. No more generic digital wheels and no more random number generators, just live casino action directly on your television. All you need to do to play is open an account at one of the online sites that allow you to play Live Roulette TV and the tune your television to the channel. A real live host also serves as the dealer and you get to play on a real roulette wheel.

The rules of Live Roulette TV are similar to what you would see in a live casino, but you don’t have to deal with all the hassle. If you live in the UK and are used to going to Las Vegas to play roulette, you really need to look into this option as it presents a lot of advantages compared to making the trip to Las Vegas.

Travel – one of the biggest inconveniences and costs that you incur if you live in the UK and want to play roulette in Las Vegas is the cost to get there. You are more than likely going to spend close to if not more than $1,000 for two people just to walk into the casino. That means you have to win that much just to break even!

Crowds – while you may enjoy the action of the casino, the crowds can often be overwhelming. You may not be able to get a table or you may find the perfect table only to have the most disgusting or annoying person on the face of the earth sit down next to you. Nothing spoils a good trip more than ‘that person’ who just gets under your skin.

Limits – when you are playing in a Las Vegas casino, you are stuck playing the limits they have on available tables. What if they only have $25 tables available and your budget does not allow you to play at that level and your trip ends up being totally wasted. When you play Live Roulette TV, you can play at any limit you desire, any time you want.

Bonuses – There isn’t a casino in the world that will double your bankroll the moment you sign up for a players card, but just about every online casino available will do exactly that when you make your first deposit. If you think you are going to have to sacrifice rewards programs by playing online, you will often find that the online casinos that offer Live Roulette TV will have a much better program available than any live Las Vegas Casino can offer.

These are but a few reasons to enjoy Live Roulette TV over a trip to a Las Vegas Casino. The more you look into it, the better it looks!
