Beware- you can not replace the battery on the transmitter
25 July 2015
Summary: Don't buy unless you want to replace the transmitter in 6 months. No option to replace the transmitter battery. Have to send the unit back to only 5 service centers in the US. I have owned various brands of HRM's over the last 20 years and I have to say that Polar's products that don't have a...
Summary: Good heart rate monitor - it works with my old chest strap, so I didn't have to buy a new strap. The only criticism I have is that the interface using the "button" isn't terribly intuitive. It has taken quite a while to have the functioning become "automatic" for me.
Summary: This heart rate monitor is good for the price. I did have some concerns about it, for example sometimes it doesn't work when I jog but works if I do Elliptical or Rowing. Also, I am average size guy, I buy shirts that are Large size, not even XL, but this chest strap is only just comfortable enough...
Summary: I only use it to keep track of my pulse beat and the length of time from when I started my aerobic walk. I figured how to get the pulse beat showing but It took me while to figure out how to get the length of time.
Summary: Since I need reading glasses these days, the size of print/numerals has become a big issue, so this budget-priced, no-frills monitor is perfect for my daily weight loss cardio walk: 1) the monitor displays my heart rate with large numerals that I can easily see without reading glasses; 2) a push of...
Love it! Use Torx T5 mini bit to replace CR2025 battery.

Summary: I'm very impressed with the reliability and responsiveness of this HRM. I run frequently and have some tough workouts hr based, and I've been able to faithfully rely on this. I used to use a Reebok hrm before it stopped working properly, and while that had a few more features (like an alarm and...
Summary: This is a great little heart monitor without the bells and whistles. It tells you how long you worked out and min,max, and ave. heart rate. It sounds a rather annoying beep if you go out of your target zone. I'm sure there's a way to silence it, but I haven't bothered to look at the manual.
Summary: I am an exercise physiologist in a cardiac rehabilitation program at a local hospital. We recommend our patients get a heart rate monitor as one of the ways to monitor their exercise intensity via target heart rate range.
