    This is a great HR monitor for the price. It obviously tells you your heart rate, but also tells you if you're training in the fat burning zone. This is a huge advantage to somebody like me who does cardio like running and skipping as it can tell you if you're pushing too hard or not hard enough. I now realise that for about 6 months I've been pushing too hard in the running and have actually been elevating my heart rate above the optimal needed for fat burning.

    The sensor strap that comes with it, which you wear around your chest to monitor the actual heart rate (which then sends a signal to the watch) is comfortable and hasn't rubbed or irritated my skin at all. You do have to wet the sensors before putting it on and my advice is to use lukewarm water, because cold water can obviously be a little too cold when you first attach the strap.

    What it does:

    1) Tells you if you're in the target fat burning zone (the most useful info of the lot in my opinion).

    2) Tells you how many calories you've burnt.

    3) Tells you how long your exercise lasted for and how much of that time was spent in the fat burning zone.

    4) It gives you a maximum heart rate for training period, as well as an average.

    5) It also tells you the time of day.

    What it doesn't do:

    1) It doesn't tell you the distance you've covered.

    2) It doesn't come with software that you can use to sync your results to your computer. However, you can go to the Polar training website and input your results manually, which is what I do; and you'll still get a record and chart of your results over a period of time.

    So, a pretty good HR monitor and cheap considering the features you get.

    Love this item. Very simple to set up and does exactly what it claims to do. This is my first HRM and it couldn't be easier to use. It measures heart rate, length of workout and calories burned. I wanted to know how many calories burned when swimming so the first outing was in a pool. This device really encouraged me to push myself harder, just what I wanted, I thoroughly recommend this HRM.

    I chose this product based on the reviews on amazon and on-line and could not be more delighted with the watch. Its great for those just starting out, its easy to use and I haven't had any problems using it so far. The chest strap is very comfortable I hardly even notice it during exercise.

    I have been using this for quite some time now and I absolutely love it. It's perfect for monitoring your heart rate and makes a little beeping sound when you are too high or too low. Also makes you feel great when you realise how many calories you have burned. Would highly recommend!
