Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

CompressionZ Heart Rate Monitor Watch Review


Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I'm a technology nerd - always have been. And I've been on the market for awhile to find a watch to calculate my calorie burn when doing strength training etc. I usually can guess my calorie burn with running (for me, it's about 70 calories per mile), but strength training was a whole new beast for me. And I was clueless about my calorie burn.

I was able to test the CompressionZ Heart Rate Monitor Watch 


I've used heart rate monitors in the past, but they have always required a chest strap. So the thoughts of being able to know my heart rate without a chest strap sounded awesome. 

In my case, it was a little too good to be true. I am still on the market for something that will constantly tell me what my heart rate is - this watch doesn't do that. I'm actually not sure there is one out there that does that doesn't require a chest strap? But I haven't researched to see. 

However, the CompressionZ Heart Rate monitor watch has a lot of functions. It has an alarm, chrono, and exercise function. I used the exercise function the most. I was able to track the amount of time along with calorie burn and my heart rate. Although the heart rate wasn't constant, I was able to push a button and have it read my heart rate. Sometimes it didn't read properly, but when it did, I felt it was fairly accurate. There is an HR button that you can press to get your HR, but within the exercise function you can also press it to get your HR during exercise. 

I think one thing that I could have used a little more of would have been more instructions on how to use the watch, but after internet searches I was able to get some tips. 

If you are looking for a watch to give you a constant heart rate during exercise, I haven't found that this watch does that. But overall I feel that the CompressionZ Heart Rate Monitor watch does what it claims to do (here are the bullet-ed points from Amazon).. although I can't say that it necessarily reduces stress! 

  • Calculate your heart rate and the calories burned according to the preset age, weight and sex
  • Available Modes: Time mode / Daily Alarm Mode /Chronograph mode /Pulse Mode / Exercise Mode
  • Exercise Counter with Automatic and Manual override Calorie Counter
  • Help to reduce stress
