Summary: There are a lot of very high tec and complicated products on the market aimed at heart rate training - as someone new to it, I wanted something simple to set up and easy to use. This does the job. The instructions are clear, and the watch and belt are comfortable. I also discovered that the monitor works with the running machine in the gym which was a bonus. This product monitors my heart rate while I'm running, and provides basic stats available until the next run.
Summary: Bought this after reading good reviews online and its low price. Picks up heart rate within seconds and will store your latest workout on the watch provided. Vital information includes workout time, average heart rate as well as max heart rate. Both chest and watch are comfortable to wear and are adjustable for people of all sizes. Highly recommend the product to those looking for a cheap, reliable product.

Summary: I like to keep myself fit through doing regular exercise, but on occasions, my time in gym may be limited due to other commitments. Hence, when I do use the gym, I like to get the maximum benefit from any exercise that I do, and one way to do this is to monitor my heart rate, which is a good way to measure how hard your body is working. Hence I recently bought this Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor for £32 from Amazon to assist me with that measurement.
Summary: The Polar FT1 Heart rate monitor is great bit of kit for anyone wanting to get fit and lose a bit of weight , it's useful to know your heart rate when working out so you know when your burning the most calories and also if you are getting fitter from work out to work out. Now I am no fitness expert I am just someone who has lost a lot of baby weight and is enjoying getting fitter.
Summary: Anyone who is serious about getting fit and losing weight has to keep on top of a couple of things, their calories and their heart rate during workouts. Keeping an eye on your heart rate allows you to train at the correct intensity and hopefully burn the most calories and the most fat!
