If, for whatever reasons-health, competition-you jog, cycle, row, you will know that after a certain amount of time your pulse beats faster. This is, of course, the intention, because in that way you exercise your heart and circulatory system. This is fine, but the heart beat must not become too high, because that is dangerous. How far you can let it rise depends on various factors, such as age and physical condition. The present meter enables you to check that you do not exceed your maximum pulse rate.
