Heart Rate Monitor and Watch

Heart Rate Monitor and Watch

Heart-rate training is just as important in the water as it is on land, but many activity monitors and watches aren’t waterproof. The Polar M200 is the perfect, mid-range solution, especially if swimming isn’t your only go-to activity. It’s fully waterproof, provides wrist-based continuous heart-rate monitoring, and also offers integrated GPS, and automatic sleep- and activity-tracking. Plus, you can use it to time your intervals and splits throughout your swimming workout. [$150; polar.com]

If you already have a watch you love, but it doesn’t track your heart rate, consider the Polar H10 heart rate sensor. This waterproof heart rate sensor integrates seamlessly with the free Polar Beat app, allowing you to track your heart rate on your smartphone. Or, if you don’t want your phone near the pool, simply transfer the sensor’s data to the app after your workout is complete. [$90; polar.com]
