Do any of you use a heart rate monitor?

I'm looking into purchasing a wrist watch heart rate monitor for working out. I've heard some really great things about Polar, my friend swears him and all his friends use it for the triathalons they run, but Polar is pricey and I have limited funs.

If you use one, do you have any good recommendations for a good, rather inexpensive one?

Thanks in advance!

I have a Polar and I love it.

This one, to be exact: Dick's Sporting Goods - Exercise: Fitness Accessories: Heart Rate Monitors: Polar F6 Black Diamond Womens Heart Rate Monitor - New Color!

There are cheaper ones, but this was worth the money to me. Maybe you could save up for one?

I was looking at the F6 actually, or the F4 because those are specifically designed for women. I will have to save my pennies!

You get for what you pay and the cheaper ones are hit and miss. How accurate do you think your Polar is?

I've wanted the F4 for quite a long time, but where ever I have money to burn I always turn to denim or purses. Please let us know how you like it when you get one Rae.

I got a cheap-o one at winners for about $30. It takes a liittle long but I guess it works because it's high when it's supposed to be high. lol

Check out performance bikes. They will have sales time to time on HR monitors. I bought mine from there. It's a german model ($50). I don't recall the name.
