Well it's kind of a computer question...
I'm looking for a pulse rate watch that has a countdown timer which only counts down when you're in the target pulse rate range. I can't seem to find one anywhere!
If you have one or know of one please can you tell me the make and model?

I believe that the ICD implants have this feature embedded in their chip.
It gives you a chance to to say Oh-no just before it shocks you
I have a Polar FT1 - the cheapest one - but some of their more expensive models (e.g. RS300X (http://www.polar.fi/en/products/improve_fitness/running_multisport/RS300X)) have Interval Training features that might do what you want. Interval Training means you have a program to make sure you do e.g. 5 minutes at ~80% of your max heart rate, then 10 minutes at ~60%, or whatever, and it will beep at you when you need to speed up or slow down.
edit: Timex also do HR monitors with interval training, and are a bit less expensive e.g. their Race Trainer range.

Oh, sorry, you meant the other sort of pulse monitor !
What sort of a computer question is that, you could have at least asked for one with a USB or bluetooth interface ? :cool:
