Home pulse counter.

Do any of you use some kind of heart rate monitor at home to check your resting pulse rate? If so what brand/model? Had an old wrist watch style with a clip on sensor but it has crapped out.

If you are resting, why can't you use your finger and a clock?

There's an iphone phone app that monitors your face with the camera. It senses changes in color due to capillary blood flow and thus reads pulse.

I use my HRM with chest strap. We do have a home pressure monitor that also records pulse. It's an arm cuff one, but no good to me. My resting rate is about 38-40 and the monitor alarms at that as it thinks the sensor is detached
