Strengths:    HRM with multiple Cyclocomputer functions at a cost much lower than similar products. wheel magnet is well designed and stays put on the wheel. Easy to read with a separate display for HR. Kept working even through beatings on the trail.

Weaknesses:    Not sure if it's battery issues, but the HR strap needs to be within a close distance to get a reading. The wired pulled out from the base. I repaired with some glue and silicone, but it eventually pulled completely out. It may be my fault, as I used it with a suspension fork, but it had plenty of slack to move with the travel. It was poorly designed with no 'brace' to take the tension off the mount. The HR monitor still works though.

Bottom Line:   
Great value with all the functions! Make sure the wire is mounted so that tension is taken off the mount!!!

Strengths:    price

Weaknesses:    none really - maybe bottons design could have been better

Bottom Line:   
Great deal, same cycle function as my cateye tomoxc
and you get a HRM. Never had a problem with reading, picking up signal etc. HRM made significant improvement
to my riding.

Strengths:    Price! HRM and computer in one.

Weaknesses:    Buttons clog with mud, sensor sometimes stops working.

Bottom Line:   
Best price/quality ratio! The product has some minor drawbacks however: buttons clog with mud (it did on my last marathon - I wanted to know how far from finish line I was but I could only watch my HR!), wheel sensor stops working with no reason - cable was good, sensor itself too. When assembled everything back it worked...
HRM works great and only sometimes jumps to 199 or slumps to 40.
I recommend it to people riding in mild weather conditions, road, xc. In mud it will 'crash' quickly.
En resume - you wont get better hrm/computer for the price.

Strengths:    Price, ease of use.

Weaknesses:    Price quality trade off.

Bottom Line:   
This is about the cheapest Heart Rate monitor on the market, considering you also get a simple bike computer its a bargain at twice the price. I think the closes Polar HRM goes for over $150 and you have to buy a mounting bracket. This isn't a gold plated super delux model, enjoy it for what it is cheap and functional.

Strengths:    PRICE

Weaknesses:    IT QUIT WORKING, THEY REPLACED IT, THE REPLACEMENT QUIT 6MO LATER , OUT OF WARRANTY,NO HELP FROM SUPERGO.THE BELT FOR THE SENSOR BROKE.THEY REPLACED IT.

Bottom Line:   
THERE WAS NO ABUSE TO THIS MONITOR ,WHEN IT WORKED IT WORKED WELL.BUT I DID EXPECT TO GET MORE THAN 1 1/2 YEARS OF USE OUT OF IT. I INTEND TO REPLACE THIS BUT I WILL SPEND MORE FOR BETTER QUALITY. I WAS DISSAPOINTED WITH SUPERGO THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD WITH THE FIRST 2 PROBLEMS. BUT AFTER THAT THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE REP TOLD ME THAT THE ONE OF THE REASONS IT WAS'NT WORKING WAS THAT IT MIGHT BE "THRASH".HE DID CONCEDE THAT THERE HAD BEEN A "FEW" PROBLEMS WITH THIS ITEM. NONE THE LESS, NO MORE HELP FROM THEM.

Date Reviewed: July 3, 2002

Strengths:    Chest strap has replaceable battery
Easy to read display


Weaknesses:    The base stopped picking up the signal from the wheel. Once that happened the HRM wouldn't work either. Checked the wire but no problems there. Same thing happened to the one my brother got after about 9 months. Replaced it with a Cateye Enduro 2 and that works great.

Bottom Line:   
I got it for the HRM feature which worked well except when riding near high power lines. The factthat the HRM doesn't work unless the speedo was running was annoying though. When it worked it was good.

Strengths:    Cheap, it works

Weaknesses:    Come on engineers - design one of these that has wireless heart and wireless speedo @ the same time. Better yet - pay me and I'll do it.

Bottom Line:   
If you want to watch your heart rate while trying to keep up with better riders, this one is a good choice.
