Don't get me wrong, I I like the watch. Most of the features work very well, however, one important feature doesn't work well at all.
The heart rate monitoring on my watch is inaccurate. It always has been since day 1. It doesn't register high heart rates well, and it intermittently loses the ability to read entirely. It will stop increasing at 110 beats per minute during a tough workout and stay there for awhile, then drop down to 60. It's an older one with the Nokia brand on it, from before Withings bought it. I like the Steel HR or Steel HR sport, and I'm looking to upgrade, but I want to know if the heart rate monitoring technology has improved and works better on the new models.
The one I have has a single heart rate reader and 2 green lights. Do the new models have anything different or a higher quality one at least? Does anyone have positive or negative experience they can share about the new Steel HR or Sport?
