Do heart rate monitors' straps usually fit around a large person's chest. I measured myself at chest level and am around 52 inches.
I want a heart rate monitor that tells me where I am, records the average heartrate, and tells me the max and min.
Do any of the heart rate monitors out there let you input your age, weight, height, etc - and give you a 'good' estimation of calories burned, or should I just take the info from the monitor and go online to various calculators and use it.
I see the 'strapless' heart monitors that are usually cheaper - I'm assuming those are far beneath the quality of the 'chest' strap ones.
Thanks for thoughts and or information!
