4.0 out of 5 stars Suunto T6C - Expensive but effective, 18 Oct. 2008
By 
This review is from: Suunto T6C Fusion Men's Heart Rate Monitor (Misc.)
t6cSuunto GPS POD
I have owned my T6C for three months. It merits 5 stars for functionality, but the price of the T6c and its GPS add-on is high.
As an active 57 year old it has really helped me regain my former fitness level after an injury layoff, without over-extending myself.
The many data options on the T6c help me exercise at the right intensity and for the right duration. Downloading the data to a PC is simple, and the Training Monitor software is an excellent logbook and performance analyser. The GPS POD links simply to the T6c to give speed and distance, but does not provide a track that can be viewed on a map.
My T6c has done everything I wanted and has been totally reliable. The only negative I can report is that the HR signal from the new style "comfort" chest strap does not register with the most common gym treadmills or bikes. Also, although the T6c becomes simple and intuitive to use, it is essential to read the manual for intitial set-up.
I have other Suunto and Garmin equipment, and bought the T6c to replace an old Polar HRM. I considered all three brands but selected the Suunto because of it's features, battery life/replacement, and good experience with my Suunto Vyper dive computer.

Update December 2009.
T6c continues to work reliably.

Update December 2011.
T6c continues to work reliably. I bought the dual HR belt so it now works with standard gym treadmills etc. but objected to paying nearly £50 for this privilege. I have also learnt that if I want to use the T6c for swimming I would need to buy the even more expensive "memory belt". This is taking a bit of a liberty.
The other disappointment is that the excellent Training Manager software is no longer available for download or support, which is letting down existing customers.
