The HR function _is_ pretty accurate when it's working - wet the sensors, as Mr Puffy says, and make sure it is comfortable and stable (my SO has to wedge it under her bra a bit).
On a static 'treadmill endurance' test, I got up to 199bpm, so 216 probably isn't impossible for short bursts, but not recommended!
