View Full Version : Heart Rate monitors?

Just wonder what you all used (Brand)?

I just started at a new gyms and the cardio equipment is kinda older with no moniotrs in them. So......plus the weather will be starting to get a little warmer which means outside time.

Any recommendations?

I use a Sports Instruments "Circuit 5" when I ride my mountain bike; it's always been reliable (I've had it for several years).

I used to use a Polar "Pacer" (the old, bulky model, with the big, rectangular display), which I used for several years of road cycling training, until I bought the Circuit 5 and gave the Pacer to a friend.

I have a Sports Instruments ECG4 that I bought brand new off of ebay. There's still tons of them on ebay for $45 brand new. I like it. It tells you how many calories you've burned and even has a backlight. Very reliable so far.

Thanks! I did not even think of ebay. I just need one that keeps time and heart rate.
