Nice Heart Rate Monitor
I've used a few other heart rate monitors before. Polar is by far my favorite. But this particular model is very easy to set up, reads heart rate accurately, and tells you your estimated calories burned which is what I was looking for. I also like that you can choose what you want to see while you're working out; you can look at just your calories, just your heart rate, the duration and heart rate, or you can switch back and forth between all of them. You can't do that with all watches so that was a huge plus for me.

Great idea if it worked properly
I really want to like this product, but unfortunately it does not calculate my heart rate correctly. It usually calculates my heart rate as somewhere in the 40-beat per minute range, which I know is not correct. So, that makes me wonder if any of the other calculations are correct. It seemed to work great the first couple times I used it, but after that it was way off.

I got this HR monitor for last Christmas, and I love it. I love that it tells me how many times I have worked out since the day I started using it! I love the calorie count.
I do Ultimate Body Shaping, which is like a cardio/kickboxing/weights/trx class. I wanted to see how many calories I was burning and this works great! I love the pink color of the watch/monitor. I also find the chest strap does not bother me one bit. My husband liked mine so much, he got one for himself in the silver and black! Now my boss is getting one for himself and his wife! Polar should pay me for all the recomendations that I give and people actually purchase because of me! Anyways, it is a great investment, you won't be disapointed.

This was a great purchase!! It tracked the calories burned while weight lifting and I wasn't able to do that before today. I also realized that I was always over my weigh gym loss zone.

Easy to use and comfortable
This product is really easy to use and review my previous workouts. I was worried about the elastic band around my chest because I do a high-impact cardio, jumping around workout but it stays in place and I forget it's even there!!!

heart rate watch
I previously purchased this product 2 summers ago and it seemed like my calorie count was always lower than the others in class. Hard to return this product if you lose the receipt or to have it fixed by Polar company. Make sure you keep the receipt! haven't had any problems with the new one. Love the color!

Necessary fitness tool!
The heart rate monitor itself is accurate, automatically connects to my cardio machine at the gym (arc trainer usually), and is VERY easy to use. I bought mine on my way to the gym, sat in the car for less than 5 minutes to open it and get it on, and was good to go. And the strap is indeed comfortable, I was worried about that feature and am happy to say I don't even notice when I'm wearing it. The pink watch itself is cute (bonus points!) and very comfortable.
I wanted to get a HRM to simply see how hard my body was actually working, I wasn't too focused on calorie count until I had this little baby on. Seeing how many calories youre burning in a workout (accurately so, as opposed to the reading on the cardio machine) is motivation in itself. I find myself pushing to get to the next 100 calories, sometimes burning 1,000 calories in a single work out!
Its a really cool training tool, I have recommended it to all my friends, whether theyre trying to loose weight or just for general fitness.
