Sure, except it can allow you to determine HR zones that are pretty good for determining stress on your body from exercising (the zones, that is). So training in Zone 2 will require a different amount of rest and can be done for a different length of time than a Zone 4 workout. I've personally found these work much better at keeping up my progress and keeping down overtraining than going by feel.
