    Anyone else bought one? I was playing with my new one tonight, and I have managed to get it stuck on thinking that I was born in 1950. Anyone got any ideas how to change it back?

    I got one from Maplin and had to take it back - you needed a jeweler's screwdriver to put the battery in it FFS. £20 from Tesco sounds good - I tried a Polar one that said it was ECG accurate and pretty much seemed to be, but some of them seem to throw out random numbers - you can guess more accurately.

    The other thing I wondered about was whether heart rate was everything as a measure of cv effort. Running fast on a treadmill my heartrate can be very high, but perceived exertion is quite low. Carrying weight up a hill heartrate can be lower, but my heart can be banging out of my chest, and if I open my mouth wide there's a horrible rushing sound of blood with each beat, "tak-sheesh, tak-sheesh".

    I think some exercises get the blood back to your heart more efficiently through the so-called "peripheral heart action", so heart rate seems lower, but the amount of blood shifted and the real effort is higher.

    Ok, stand by, I needed one to reset this one, as I fucked up when I initially set it up. I think thats standard practice for watches/similar to be honest.
