No, that's correct. There is always a delay in the HR reacting to changes in effort, both up and down. For example, it's perfectly normal when doing hill repeats that the HR will peak when you're already on the downhill.

After trying a variety of devices, found that I had to shave my chest and apply gel in order to get reliable readings.

Max HR 182, resting 40-42.
Run HM at 165 rising to 170.
Marathon I can sustain around 160, that tallies with lactate threshold as measured in sports lab.
Marathon plus - don't bother with HRM, run on perceived effort.
Most training done 130-140 bpm.
