DCRainmaker is not to judgemental about wrist based optical hrm. He tends to just look at the figures and comments based on evidence.
Last time I looked, 6 months ago now, he rated valencell and mio optical sensors. He also kind of said it's the whole package that devices whether it works. As I said it was a while since I checked into his excellent site but back then the Scocche rhythm wrist based hrm was highly regarded. Good for active hr monitoring unlike some optical units.
There are good and bad units but it's harder to get it right then chest straps monitors. However chest straps aren't to everyone's liking. It's perfectly possible to get a good wrist based monitor up for most active people.
