Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor

  • Summary: While the watch does what it's suppose to do, the data transfer option is very misleading. You actually have to purchase a Polar FlowLink device which costs at least an additional $50 in order to download your workouts. I bought this watch specifically for the data transfer and was disappointed when I realized you couldn't download anything without the FlowLink. In fact, the directions tell you to type in your workouts online to track them.
  • Cons: Limited Features

  • Summary: Simpler to use than the Timex Ironman but fewer features. Appealing capability to upload data but then you have to buy a $40 accessory. That's disappointing. I bought the thing and it works OK. I use it primarily for running and biking. I like the styling except that the black face with white numbers is a bit difficult to read in many lighting conditions. I'd suggest getting white background. Chest strap is as comfortable as any chest strap I've tried.
  • Pros: Accurate, Easy To Use, Gives A Quick Reading, Simple
  • Cons: Black Face

Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor

  • Summary: I just want to address a specific thing about this particular HRM. I have owned no less than seven Polar watches over the last ten years. All of them come out of the box working great. The most important feature for me is the algorithm they use to determine calories burned. Other watches like Timex and Garmin don't factor in weight and age, so I have always depended on Polar for the best numbers. The BIG problem with Polar is their reliability.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Gives A Quick Reading
  • Cons: Breaks Easily, Unreliable

  • Summary: My wife asked me to program her old worn-out HRM and I figured it would be better to buy a new one so this was what I picked. While in the store with her, I decided I needed one too, so I bought the Mens version. During the first time out hiking, we noticed a problem; we were both occasionally registering over 200 bpm, but remained alive!! That's when I realized our transmitters were on the same frequency.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Gives A Quick Reading
  • Cons: Uncomfortable
