I just got question for probably very basic thing in the mountain....

How important is to know your heart rate in climbing mountain and why? Is there any recommendation for product?

I guess one is you check when you are training(running / cycling) so you can keep the same in the mountain?

Other one would be to avoid the trouble in the cold weather(death from cold)?

I appreciate your opinion!! Thanks,

Just take your pulse on occasion....If you don't have one you're in trouble...I've been there.

Are you talking about high altitude? If yes, a pulse oxymeter would give your pulse and more importantly, your O2 saturation level.

Training with a HR monitor is great way to get the most out of your workouts. It's also great to know what HR zone you're in, how long you can sustain it, etc. This applies to mountain climbing the same way it does in any other sport.

I don't understand your second question. "Avoid the trouble ..." of what? If you need a HR monitor to keep yourself from exploding, then using one wouldn't seem like too much trouble to me.
