Has anyone used one before, what are they like.

I am looking for something to test my resting HR every morning and it would be easer than strapping on or just counting.

Though this will depend on the individual device, these units are generally not that accurate, at least partly because the fingers are a long way from the electrical pulses from the heart. I find it pretty easy to just listen to my heart to count beats.
