Got the wife’s present sorted out eventually. We went into the jewellers in the mall and they took out 6 links. It now fits, and I think looks, beautiful. Well so does she which makes it all ok either way 🙂
On the way through the shopping mall I passed a little watch repairers and because the daughter wanted a new battery in her watch I stopped to get them to fix it.
While there I looked around, as you do, and noticed a Timex ‘heart monitor’ watch which looked ok. I’d seen this sort of watch before and wondered if I should get one. However, the Timex offering didn’t have much of a ‘look’ about it so decided against it. However, further down the counter they had a Casio model which had a heart monitor and *this* one I thought looked great. There were two models, one was black… the other… a sort of light blue and white.
This one is ‘basic black’… I couldn’t find a photo of my colour online and I’m too idle to take my own so imagine the same watch but where the one in the photos is black… mine is white.
So, bearing in mind my 60th will be in a few weeks I figured I’d go and nag the wife a little to see if she’d be interested. The thing was $199 so wasn’t a *huge* amount, but even so, it still cost. Anyway, to cut a long story short… I’m now the proud possessor of a watch that will let me know when my heart rate reaches excessive levels and that *will* be useful. The one thing the treadmill won’t tell me is my heart rate and there have been times when I’ve been a little concerned about the way my heart has been thumping.
Now… no more worries. When I collapse I can do it knowing exactly what my heart rate was when I passed out 😀
Oh yes… the face had fallen out of the daughters watch so I couldn’t fix it. We bought *her* a new one too.
