I've used F4 for a few months and so far I am very pleased with it. F4 works very well and has all the basic functionality that I need: heart rate, adjustable heart rate zone, zone warnings, burnt calories, time, average heart rate etc. It's not very stylish but I wouldn't wear it outside the running path anyway:)

Pros:
- easy to set up
- easy to use
- chest belt is comfortable and machine washable (in laundry bag)
- finds heart rate reliably and quickly
- display is easy to read

Cons:
- none really

I may upgrade to a heart rate monitor with a GPS receiver in the future but I can recommend F4 for anyone who wants a reliable monitor with basic functions for a reasonable price.

Great product, 'does exactly what it says on the tin'.
I wear it whenever I go cycling, come rain or shine, and it has never let me down.
Easy to read whilst on the move. Love the fact that it stores 10 Training Files.
Seems very accurate and looks good too. Highly recommended.

As well as pulse measuring the FT4M also records basic training albeit it's a little a bit fiddly to access. The chest strap is easy to adjust for size, easy to put on and vey comfortable to wear. The watch strap fitting is also very adjustable having many closley spaced holes embedded in a narrow plastic strip running down the centre of the strap. All in all, an excellent product.

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.

This is an excellent entry level heart rate monitor. I love that the running / cross trainer machines at the gym pick up signal and project it automatically however the machines next to you can pick it up also, so its strange that other people have your heart rate.

The Calorie calculator is interesting. It is far higher than what the machines at the gym show (3 times more in some cases) but from what I can tell, this is a very accurate monitor so should take it as far closer to what is actually being spent.

The chest strap is very comfortable if a little strange to use at first.

All in all i would highly recommend this heart rate monitor for those who want to know what their heart rate is, the calories burned and a good summary at the end of what they did.

I bought this heart monitor to use in the gym as it appeared to do everything I required. Nothing too difficult - record results for 4 exercises, each showing average and maximum heart rates, duration, and calories. Also, heart rate to appear on the dial during exercises and even better if it also transfers this figure to the exercise machine (where possible).

When it arrived I was somewhat disappointed as it looked rather flimsy and plasticy - my previous Oregon monitor was larger and more sturdy (however, it failed to work properly after 3 years). Well, my concerns were unfounded. The Polar monitor does everything I required (and more). It does not need to be large and heavy-duty - the simple design is strong enough and not of inferior Chinese quality. The heart rate does show on the exercise machines. Another excellent feature is the detachment of the monitor itself from the chest strap, so that the battery then stops working. In my Orogon the battery had to be removed to stop it and it was the monitor part that eventually failed.)

Learning how to use it was very quick - it is not unnecessarily complex. It is also very easy to use. Finally, changing the battery in both the watch and monitor is quick and easy. (On my Orogon, it was extremely difficult to change the battery in the watch.)

No complaints other than the fact that it looks like I am wearing a plastic digital watch rather than a sporty accessory !

Does everything you could want it to, tells you the calories burnt, the current heart rate, length of session, whether your heart rate is in your predetermined zone with an audible beep when it's not. After the workout session you can look through previous sessions where it will tell you length if session average heart rate maximum heart rate, time "in the zone" and calories burnt. The only negative is the watch is a little uncomfortable and the strap can be a bit imposing at times

I value three stars because you have to differentiate what we want. It's a watch to take care , if you only want this you'll do great or simply start jogging less than an hour and see how it will evolve your body, if you want more of this and you project a slightly more competitive level , I is too small .

As for performance , technical features come anywhere, not feelings . And for me , it is a great watch , you do not realize you're wearing it . Measured calories great and works perfectly. The chest belt also goes very well, and measured quite nicely.

I think it is geared to what I mentioned above, care work , lose weight, and more control you . If you just want this is great, but if you're a runner and you want to start running and you plan to go more and more , it is better either with GPS though it costs more , it is better to buy a single watch, that not one and within from year to year and you've spent twice for the same.

By the way , even if they do not , even for very very casual dress is not that clashes and lasts quite a stack . It is a great watch , with a good brand.

A thing to bear in mind is that the chest strap works effectively to transmit the signal only when the sensors on the fabric part of it are damp against the skin. That is why you need to wet the sensors under a tap when you first put the strap on; otherwise the watch will not receive a signal. After that, the sweat of moderate excercise is enough to keep it working properly. However if you just want to monitor your heart when you are walking around or resting, it won't work because there is no sweat. I found that out when I wore it on a ramble. It worked for a couple of hours but stopped when the strap sensors dried out.
The chest strap is good quality and is reasonably comfortable. It is adjustable and elasticated to fit at just the right tightness, not too tight to be restrictive and not so slack that it keeps slipping down; the best position is just under the breast bone so that the transmitter iteself sits just above your solar plexus.
The watch is fairly easy to use, navigation around the menus is intuitive. The readout of the heart rate is big enough to see easily. It also communicates with the cardio machine I am on (most of the time!) so that my heart rate is displayed on the machine in front of me. It also displays the heart rate as a percentage of maximum. If you think the maximum it sets is too low you can 'fool it' by entering a lower age in the settings (but you might want to consult a doctor or professional for a health check before you start pushing your heart near it's maximum)
A good solid product.
