A heart rate monitor is a useful tool for heart health monitoring, providing feedback for both fitness and more serious health conditions. Although they are not always precise, they generally work well enough to give you an approximation of your heart rate as you exercise or just to know your heart rate at any given moment during your daily routine. By using a heart rate monitor you can ascertain an exercise level that will optimize the burning of fat and you will improve your metabolism or tell you to cool down after a stressful meeting at the office.
