Strengths:    Simple, light-weight, water resistant

Weaknesses:    Inconsistent, unreliable, bad reception

Bottom Line:   
This thing has been flaky from day one. The only time it works well is on hot days where you're really working up a sweat. On training rides on cool days it maybe works 10% of the time. Then again on a hot race day or in the gym it will work close to 100% of the time. Get anywhere near power lines and reception gets screwed up. It was extremely frustrating to use. Finally I broke down and spent $400 on a Polar system - omg what a difference ! So if you live on the equator, or like to slather your chest with conductive gel, you might enjoy the PC800. Otherwise if you want consistency and accuracy in a HRM, steer clear.

Strengths:    It Does what you need it to do. It is easy to use, has a very easily read display and all the basic functions a good HRM needs.

Weaknesses:    No backlight, but I don't ride at night so that is ok with me.

Bottom Line:   
Good HRM for the price. If you need a basic HRM this one will work well and fit the budget.
