Polar FT4 - Great Entry level HRM, 03 July 2012
By Freckles73 (Edinburgh)
I did lots of research before I bought this and was sceptical about how valueable it would be in my training goals. No faffing about with the chest strap/need to wet it first, it has worked first time every time consistently and comfortably tucks under my sports bra - now in training for a half marathon in a few months and I wouldnt be parted from it - its' comfortable and the HRM display is big numbers. A lot of reviews said you cant hear the "chirp" it makes when running...I hear it less in the gym as you'd expect, but can hear it when I'm running outside - to be honest you'll just get into the habit of just looking at the display anyway and I dont think it's an issue for the price and functionality. V happy with it!
