Our Range of Heart Rate Monitors & Heart Rate Monitor Watches
Take your workouts to the next level with a heart rate monitor watch from 99 Bikes!. We carry a wide selection of heart rate monitors from the best brands at the best prices in Australia. Heart rate monitors are a great method of monitoring and controlling the intensity of your workout. They allow you to achieve the optimal level of exertion for your fitness goals based on your maximum heart rate (your maximum heart rate can be calculated by subtracting your age from 220, i.e. if you’re 30 years old your max heart rate would be 190).
Whether you have a phone, bike computer or GPS watch you can use a heart rate monitor to take your bike riding or exercise to the next level. While some modern GPS watches detect heart rate via wrist based heart rate technology, the best way to monitor your heart rate during exercise is with a chest strap from the likes of Wahoo and Garmin. Simply connect to your watch or bike computer via bluetooth and you can see your live heart rate and gain insights into your physical performance and training. Use this data to guide your training or just as a secondary source of information, the choice is up to you. The best fitness track with a heart rate monitor will usually be able to pair with a chest strap if you want more accurate data. When it comes to choosing a heart rate monitor, it usually comes down to a choice between a wahoo heart rate monitor and a Garmin heart rate monitor as they set the standard for reliability and accuracy
In order to build endurance you need to get kilometres in your legs, however if you’re pushing yourself too hard you’ll tire prematurely and won’t be able to sustain the length of workout required to build your aerobic capacity. Conversely if you’re not pushing yourself hard enough you won’t get the most out of your time spent on the road, track or in the pool. That’s where heart rate monitors come in... As a guide beginners should aim to sustain between 50-65% of their max heart rate, enthusiasts 60-75% and experienced athletes 70-85% - these figures are indicative only and should only be treated as an approximate guide. At 99 Bikes we stock the best heart rate monitors from brands in Australia and the world, such as Garmin, Wahoo, Cateye and Jetblack. So shop in-store or online today at 99 Bikes.
