The Suunto M4 Heart Rate Monitor provides you with the motivation you need to achieve your fitness objectives.
At A Glance
The Suunto M4 Heart Rate Monitor is designed for recreational fitness enthusiasts who live an active life and want to get the most out of it. Using the M4 sports watch is like having your very own personal trainer. By giving you daily workout instructions, and real-time advice on whether to increase or decrease your exercise intensity, the M4 gives you the motivation necessary to reach your desired goals. It comes standard with the Suunto Dual Heart Rate Belt, which is compatible with most cardio equipment at the gym and gives interference-free use whether indoors or out.
With the M4 heart monitor, simply set your fitness goals and it will instruct you what to do. After you complete the Fitness Test, which takes about 20-30 minutes, the M4 will provide a seven-day exercise plan and adjust it each day based on your actual exercise sessions. If you miss a workout or don't hit a recommended intensity level during a session, the Suunto M4 Heart Rate Monitor will adjust your plan so you can make up what you missed and keep from falling behind.
The Suunto M4 also sends feedback messages to motivate you during workouts. It looks great and is simple to use whether at home or at the gym. The M4 also offers a free training program if you don't want to follow a guided program. You can see your progress in real-time or online. Workout information can be uploaded to Movescount.com if you incorporate the use of Suunto Movestick.

Here's what customers are saying about the Suunto M4 Heart Rate monitor sports watch:
...I recently upgraded to this watch from a 4 year old T4. I chose this watch because of its price, and I didn't need to connect multiple Suunto devices (like a GPS pod or a step counter pod). This new M4 is VERY well designed. The button layout and operation is very intuitive. The only thing you need to remember to do is hit the start stop button when beginning a workout. The heart rate belt has also been redesigned. It is incredibly comfortable! Even when doing sit-ups! The strap material itself is thinner, and they incorporate well-designed metal contacts in the strap. The exercise programs are good, and the watch tells you what you need to do for a workout every day. You need to check in with the watch fairly often to keep your heart rate within their "targets." Sometimes a 40 minute workout can drag on an additional 10 minutes if you don't keep your heart rate in the zone. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase...
...I just have been using the M4 for over a week after my Timex HR broke down after good 5 years of steady use. what I like about the M4 is the fact that gives me a clue what do I need to do and where to target, pretty much what I was aiming for, it is pretty easy to use. You can literally start to use it right out of the box!. The down side for me would be that this kind of devices - not only the M4 - does not count underwater exercises such as swimming or water-aerobics. But overall it clues me in the things that need to be taken care in order to keep healthy lifestyle...
