I purchased the PM 90 as I wanted to see the elevation and the ambient temperature in addition to heart rate.
The package consists of the HR monitor, special USB lead to transfer data to a computer, bike mount, heart rate strap, detailed manual, quick start guide and a nice storage box.
It is worth noting that the PM 90 is ANT+ compatible and will pair with similar belts not made by Beurer. In addition to the supplied belt I have tried it successfully with a Garmin Premium belt.
Construction is of high quality and is waterproof to 50 m. The watch is large, and the display which shows three lines of data can be read even without glasses. This is a plus point as I purchased the PM90 mainly for cycling.
The manual is excellent and I have found no connection problems between the belt and monitor. It is worth noting that unlike some other monitors, when the belt is first put on, it is necessary to enter the 'training' menu where a connection will automatically be established. The HRM can then be used normally.
The menus are intuitive and with a little practice, operation becomes second nature.
The EasyFit software has to be downloaded from the Beurer website as a CD is no longer supplied.
It is installed on your computer and enables training data to be viewed once downloaded from the HRM. The software is not so sophisticated as some of the web based programs but does the job.
All in all a high quality HRM at an amazing price !
