Strengths:    Since i bought it for my old man, i was looking for a HRM that had a really large display for him to be able to read without his bi-focals during his morning walks, and this is the one model. it is also very easy to operate for it has very few and simple functions: just measures your HR and tells you when you are out of your zone, which suits my father perfectly. This device became an extra motivation for him to get up from his couch and take morning walks.

Weaknesses:    It has only the very basic functions, but in this particular case it doesn't represent a problem.

Bottom Line:   
Great for people who don't care much about recording performance. I insist the big display is very useful in my father's case and since it is very easy to operate (pretty much on/off) I got him to use it at least 3-4 times a week.

Strengths:    strong chasis, great display,

Weaknesses:    to much interference from :
Polar coded riders in a group and
magnatic fields (electricty)

Bottom Line:   
Altough this Polar is not bad in it's performance, it can't compete with the Cateye HB witch has much more functions ans performs the same but at a much lower price ($37).
At this price Polar may at the average pulse!!!

Bottom Line:   

My chest strap battery went dead.The company covered it
under warrenty.It took them three weeks to get me a new
one.The system they use really stinks it takes a week just
to get your cliam entered into their computer.The unit itself works rather well and it is worth its weight in gold for my trianing.

Live in Fruita? I need a quick favor...

If you live in Fruita (or GJ and you plan on being in Fruita in the next week or two) and don't mind doing me a quick favor, shoot me a PM. It shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes and hopefully you don't need to go out of your way in order to help.Read More »

Jackson/Driggs area fatbikers: favor request

Would anybody in the Jackson/Driggs area happen to have a rear wheel with a 170mm hub / 100mm rim combo that I could look at? I recently upgraded my fatbike frame, and am now thinking I can stuff a much bigger tire in it than I originally thought. But I'd prefer to do a test-fit first, because it ... Read More »
