- Stop watch
- Basic time keeping: Time, date and alarm

The HR102, however, does not have the following basic features: Average heart rate, maximum heart rate of exercise session.
Beyond merely showing your current heart rate, the HR102 allows you to set your heart rate training limits with a zone alarm. This is a simple yet important feature for you if you want to train effectively.
The Oregon Scientific HR102 is a simple heart rate monitor for beginning heart rate monitor users.
Note that the HR102 bears an uncanny resemblance to the Omron HR-100C heart rate monitor. They may well be, under the skin, the same watch. The reasons are:
- They have identical features.
- They have the exact same set of buttons and operate in the exact same way.
- They share near identical appearances, except for the logos.
Please note that this is just a speculation.
