A pulse monitor is provided which has a pulse monitor unit supported on a wrist band over the carpal tunnel, with a infra-red optical sensor which picks up the flow of blood therein. The detected blood flow is transmitted by a radio frequency transmitter to a display unit also supported on the wrist of the user, which processes the data signal and displays a pulse. Alternate embodiments provide for separate wrist bands supporting the pulse detector and the display unit, and for a combined detector and display unit, as well as multiple optical sensors.
