The positive aspects

The design is something that has managed to win hearts. Designed in a simple S shape, this watch is very easy to wear as it is found to be very comfortable to the wrist. The light weight serves as an added bonus.

The display screen

This watch would negate the need for anyone else to measure the heart rate of the person. The results are found to be dependable and there is no reason to doubt its accuracy

The shortcomings

No calories count

Considering that mostly such watches are used by training fanatics, this seems to be a major drawback. Calorie count display is not an option in this watch which is why many trainers seem to think twice before purchasing it.

The chest strap

While it is true that the chest strap and its ability to form connection to the gym machine is much appreciated by the users, it has been reported that the chest strap tends to fall apart and the warranty does not cover replacement of the strap.


While it is true that the Nike Triax C5 Heart Rate Monitor is far from perfect, it works just fine for those who are looking for the basic thing and just want a device that would monitor heart rate. It comes with a 2 year warranty and would not let you down if you are looking for something simple.
