Summary: I bought a used Concept 2 rower from some folks. I read on the Concept 2 website that its computer was set up to receive from the Polar Wearlink system. The receiver was already installed on the rower, but I had to get a transmitter. I was initially put off that this product description had the word "coded" in it, but it works fine for me and the Concept 2 rower.
Summary: This is so comfortable, I hardly know I am wearing it. I rarely if ever have problems picking up the signal with either a watch or a machine. The HR is always within a beat or so of what I manually count. I completely recommend this to anyone who tracks their HR and is tired of the plastic strips causing chaffing or deep marking. I have the elastic tightened almost as tight as it can go with the medium belt. I am about 33" around under my bust and wear a size 4.
Summary: I use this transmitter and strap at least 5-6 days a week and it works great! I have not had a single problem with it. The selller shipped it promptly and it arrived just as it was described, in Like New Condition.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my original chest strap transmitter that accompanied my Polar i610 heart rate monitor. It works better than the original! Picks up my heart rate as soon as I turn it on. Fit is better and the design is better. The electronic part snaps on/off from the strap so you can separate them for cleaning, drying, etc. Highly recommend!! Amazon had the best price anywhere.
Summary: Polar should see a way of making a new model as comfortable and accurate as the T31 with a replacement battery! With this one I just can't get it to fit comfortably under my bra. Also a hassle to have to wet it before and after every use. I get erratic readings and have to keep trying to fit it several times during my gym workouts. Disappointed, if I can't get it to work properly soon (I will try wearing lower, backwards...
Summary: My wife and I have had PolarUSA watches for years now. Polar came out with the Wearlink strap to improve comfort over the old T31, and to offer a replaceable battery. 1) Comfort wasn't a big deal, I don't really feel the difference. 2) Maintenance: T31...throw it in the drawer when you're done. Wearlink...wash it, dry it, wet it, kiss it. 3) Reliability: The T31 straps are dead on reliable.
