HRM with MINIMUM rate memory?…(5 posts)

HRM with MINIMUM rate memory?…TFerguson

I'm looking for an inexpensive heart rate monitor that saves the minimum rate during a period. I want it to get my resting rate while sleeping. Ones that save all the data and download are a more than I need. Just want the one point. Anybody seen such a thing?
I have a Reebok versionJL

that saves Min/Max/Avg. for a workout. It's done all I've needed it too. I have the middle level version (Fitness model) on this webpage:

This place seems to have a big selection so try checking the others as well.

Happy riding.

Thanks. Even the cheapest one has it. (nm)TFerguson

Isn't that overkill?PODIUMBOUNDdotCA

Why not just take a heart rate test in the morning? The rusko test is a good test to do. Using a heart rate monitor every night to just get minimum heart rate in my opinion is beyond overkill unless you had something like the Polar S810 which can store the info at 5/15/60 secs intervals. And even then unless your pretty much pro and monitoring your resting heart rate during the night during a major tour AND/OR on EPO you don't need it. Are you on EPO??? :)
