Have you thought about the device that is now used to measure the brachial pulse in automated blood pressure cuffs? Would work in the same calibur but the band of the watch would have to be thick enough in just the radial pulse area. Usually with exercise, the radial artery is fairly easy to palpate with just mild to hardly any pressure applied. If the individual wanted to measure their resting heart rate, he/she would just apply a small amount of pressure to the sensor. Just my thoughts...Sonya Frymyer
