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

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
