Sportline offers an extensive line of heart rate monitors, stopwatches and pedometers. The company's heart rate monitors, such as the Solo 900 watch, determine your pulse rate by processing the electronic signals that pass through your skin whenever your heart beats. You can replace dead Sportline batteries on your own to save time and money, but for most of its watches, Sportline recommends users have the batteries replaced by a professional.
