Rated 3 out of 5Â by Elizabeth Loved the watch
I loved my watch, it gave me the information I needed about my workouts and motivated me to continue. I never took it in water and only wore when I worked out. The only downfall is that the watch didn't last long. After less than a year the battery died. I tried buying replacement batteries at the store and they'd drain in less than 3 days. I even took it to a jeweler for a better battery and it still died in less than 3 days. I don't know if my watch just so happened to be faulty or if this is common. I'm about to make another purchase but I can't decide if I should go with another FT7 or just switch to a fitbit or other tracker/watch.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by kdub freaking awesome!
I love this! ACTUAL calorie count and heart rate monitor!! I tried a few others, only to find out they were only jazzed up pedometers, what a joke! If your a fitness junkie like me you'll appreciate heads up heart rate and calories burned at the push of a button! Very simple and easy to use! A friend of mine has one as well and we work out together, legitimate counts as far as we've tested. My workouts are generally around a 3500 cal burns and this thing doesn't miss a beat! I even wear it while sparring! It's taken a few hits (literally & figuratively) and has tested true! Don't waste your money on these over priced step counters, get the real deal and workout like you want it!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pattydee Polar is a great product
I purchased the Polar - Women's FT4 in the past, and it came with 2 body straps and was disappointed that the FT7 only came with one. So far the FT7 is great.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by cllhnstev The old style worked better
The readings I get are mostly nowhere near accurate. They go from well over 200 then down to accurate then back to over 200. On a 25 mile ride it's wrong about 3/4 of the time. I've tried the suggestions for an abnormal reading correction but they've been useless even with electrode gel.
Why did you take away the ability to set a lower HR limit? This was an important feature so I could set the bpm zone I want to be training in such as 117bpm to 130 bpm. The old one also told me how long I was training in that zone. A little bar would appear for each ten minutes.
