Ok, so I'm looking for a good heart rate monitor. I've checked out the ones that Eric recommends for his training plans and I like them a lot. I am still looking around on the market, however...anyone have any suggestions? I currently don't use any computers or any form of technology aside from a stopwatch.
I have the Garmin 305. I like a lot of things about it. It is very reliable. I'm very hard on it.
One of these days, I'll upgrade for the following reasons:
Good to know. I'm hard on gear too and I definitely want something that is water sealed. I also have really small wrists--I'm looking at some of the basic ones by Timex but I'm definitely not committed to any brand. Thanks!
I'm sure that you have a watch by now, since this post is almost a year old. I would suggest that ANYONE looking to buy GPS/HR watches check-out D.C. Rainmaker's website. He does the best (and extremely in depth) reviews hands down.
I just bought the Garmin 610. Smaller than other Garmins. Still getting used to the touch screen. I've had the 205 and 305; this is my first one with an HR monitor. Also looks like a watch. Very pleased, but it's not cheap.
Polar just sent me their new GPS/HR monitor. I love it. Easier to use than the Garmin, but shorter battery life and I am having trouble with their online software with my Mac. But LOVE the Polar monitor for day to day use.
I want to try the Fenix Garmin. Anyone tried this?
