    The product works fine, but there is a glaring omission in its features: you cannot check to see how many minutes you have been in your target heart range DURING your workout. In order to access the data on one’s minutes in the heart range, you have to stop the function altogether before it gives you the data. The company needs to have a feature where you can check your cumulative time in your target heart range while your workout is in progress.

    I needed a simple heart rate monitor to use in Spinning classes. This is a solid performer for basic heart rate or % max readouts. Nice big numbers for easy reading even in the dim light of a morning spin class. I comes with the fabric chest strap that is a little more comfortable than the standard hard plastic.

    I’ve taken on exercising. I felt I needed to get an idea where I stand on my pulse rate. I looked at a lot of other brands and models and settled on this one. I’ve just started using it and it’s very accurate and works great. My only complaint is working through the menu and pushing the, very hard on your fingers, buttons

    I looked at a lot of monitors and read a lot of reviews and finally settled on the Polar FT4. The numerals for heart rate, calorie burn, and the time are large enough to easily read. I wanted a monitor that gave heart rate and calorie burn so I chose this one. The monitor looks nice and is not nerdy. It is a little pricey. I must say that I bought the right one for me.

    I’m new to heart rate monitors, so I had a lot of searching to do to figure out what I needed from one before I placed my order. I soon found that the Polar brand was the one to get, but they have hundreds of models, ranging from affordable to incredible. I know some will say this model doesn’t have it all, but if you’re looking for something to keep you informed of your progress in your exercise routine, this is really all you need. Tracking up to 10 sessions worth of data, but also keeping a running total, the watch can tell you how long you worked out, your average heart rate, maximum reached, and time in the zone, and from that, how many calories you burned. It beeps softly at you every 5 seconds or so when you’re under the zone, and also tells you when you’ve exceeded your maximum. The display is really easy to read, even in the middle of vigorous training session. The watch in comfortable and easy to clean, as is the chest strap, which is fully adjustable. I have no complaints at all, and for the price, I’m extremely pleased. I only wish there was a way to download the training files from the watch to my computer, but a spreadsheet also works just fine.
