5.0 out of 5 stars Just What You Need 25 Aug 2013
Size Name:One|Verified Purchase
I needed a heart rate monitor in order to provide heart rate data during my
sessions on the Concept 2 indoor rower. As all this was completely new to me
I spent quite a while trying to decide which Polar unit to choose.

I decided upon Polar as they seemed both fairly cost effective, had a wide
range of offerings for all budgets and later I discovered that the Concept 2
rower is compatible with Polar devices which was lucky!

I was going to select a more expensive Polar unit, but eventually decided
that as I'm new to all this that spending extra money on additional features
I will probably not use was not necessary. So, I opted for the base FT1
offering.

For those that are new to this and perhaps might benefit from a lay mans
description of how this all works, then what you get is a chest belt heart
rate transmitter and a wrist watch receiver. The chest belt transmits your
heart rate to the watch which displays it and provides various other
additional functionality.

The chest belt needs to be wetted on the part that is in contact with your
chest. This is
to allow the electrical signals from your heart to be conducted through to
the
chest belt unit. Don't worry, you don't feel anything as the belt detects
the signals passively and so no shocks or tingles are felt and once on it
just feels like a belt and nothing else.

Be advised that for best results the chest belt unit should be worn just
under the breasts/pectorals, so you need to be comfortable with wearing it
in this location.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and easy to use heart rate monitor 6 Mar 2011
By Sander
Excellent heart rate monitor if you want something simple, relatively inexpensive and easy to use. It comes with a belt which is coded, so it will only measure your own heart rate and not somebody elses if you're training together. By shortly keeping the watch close to the belt you can switch between showing your heart rate, duration of your training and the current time. It stores the average and maximum heart rate and duration of one training in its memory, so you will have to write it down if you want to keep a training log. It is waterproof.

Be aware that the battery of the belt cannot be replaced, so you will have to replace the entire belt if the battery runs down. The manual states avarage battery life is about 2500 hours though, so it probably won't run down very quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Polar FT1 HRM 21 Jan 2011
By stonay
Bought the Polar FT1 some time ago and have been using the product regular for running and general fitness, no problems, the item does as it says.
The pluses.
You put the watch on attach the strap press start and off you go, on completion of the run or workout you press the button again, the information will tell you, ave hr max hr, the time taken- thats it you can store your workouts on the watch & the stopwatch is an added feature, there is also a handy backlight, IF your looking for an easy to use heart rate monitor you wont go wrong with the FT1, if you need more info relating to workout try one of the other models, 4 out of 5 nice product, on a budget i think its a great little peice of kit, nice one POLAR Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitort!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Used for Swimming 22 May 2012
By Dr Who
Size Name:One|Verified Purchase
I am an old man 62 and have just started to learn Butterfly. After two 25m lengths my heart rate shoots up. I wanted to monitor my HR (Heart Rate) just to be sure that I wasn't overloading my body too much and to check all was in order. Manually counting your pulse is of little use, as you are counting your rate that is changing back to normal.

This watch comes with a transmitter that you strap to your body; it is fairly inconspicuous; the contacts come just below my solar plexus. No one took a bit of notice that I had it on. Last Sunday I used it for the first time fearful that it wasn't going to work in the pool, and if it did, it was not going to be anywhere near accurate. Well I was pleasantly surprised that it worked like a treat. You are not allowed to press the watch's button when you are swimming but you don't need to. I started the watch's application before I started to swim and made sure I had good body contact with the transmitter (which took only a little time to get it sorted out) I then started to swim. My rest HR was 80 in the pool (60 sitting down)and after the two laps I managed to hit 137. It has really reassured me that I am within my bounds ( 220 - age) and it worked as expected. As soon as I stopped swimming, the watch showed me the exact HR for that moment. I could then work out my recovery.

After use, I rinsed the transmitter and the strap it comes with and dried them well immediately. The battery is enclosed and so can't be replaced easily (except by technicians which is probably not cost effective). If left wet it would discharge rapidly. It has a battery life of 2500 hours but my anticipated time of use is still several years for the little I would use it - may be 3 or 4 times a week.
