When used as a tool to help you follow an appropriate designed fitness program, they can be very worthwhile.

I need one to slow me down. If left alone, I typically speed up to and past the point of LTH (lactate threshold) naturally, any slower and I feel I'm dogging it. However, when you're trying to conduct an active recovery session, moving that fast is not only not the point of that particular workout, it can lead to severe overtraining (been there, done that). So for me, I wear my heart rate monitor during my "slow" sessions; my hard workouts take care of themselves.
