Rated 5 out of 5Â by Celeste nice but....needs some better stitching.
this is about the 5th one I brought!!! Love them...plain simple and thats all I need to check my heart rate. Once battery goes, you have to buy a whole new set. I use it everyday and in all kinds of fitness. However, this last one, the stitching from the edge that connects the break apart thing to get band off, came un stitched and now worthless. Am not a sewer but took it to a tailor shop to restitch and can use again. Told them to make heavier stitching. so , if the people who make these, need to make it re enforced stitching. I will still buy them.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Skyle waste of money
I got this for a Christmas present and am so disappointed the packaging got thrown away. It takes forever for it to pick up my heart rate and then it says it's 40BPM when I know it's not - when it gets above 100BPM it start tracking, maybe a records it a little high...I'm not quiet sure though because it spends about 10 minutes or more on each of the functions and rarely gets to telling me my heart rate - SOOOO frustrating. Â If you press the one "easy" button to try to get it to scan, it stops the whole workout. Â What a waste of money.Â
Rated 4 out of 5Â by dlskidmore Good value, entry level device
It's a good value, does the few things it does well. A good choice for a first heart rate monitor while you're deciding how much money to invest. The official battery replacement method is going to cost you as much as a whole new unit, so consider it disposable after a year or two of use. There are videos on replacing the battery yourself, but it may ruin the waterproofing and will definitely void the warranty.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Shirl Breaks easily and causes a rash
After less than 3 months of use, the transmitter was not sending a signal. I replaced the battery replaced and verified that the belt had a conductive connection to my skin. Still no signal. I was doubly irritated because my skin on either side of the POLAR transmitter battery holder was red and raw with a rash. Realized in reading about fixes that the belt had leaked the connective gel/fluid and caused the rash.
