HI guys, dunno if this is the rite section but sorry if it isn't (i'm a bit new). Anyways: I spent $700 (yes i know) on HRM...tried it and it was absolutely rubbish....(so i returned it and got a refund). It was a fancy digital one with special code and 1000 lap time features, and i could graph my heart rate....etc I do alot of spin classes, but things i disliked: 1. Harness around my shest...I want to be "free" while spiniing. 2. the watch sat awkwardly on my hand. 3. Pretty dear...while i can take my pulse without above restrictions very quickly and have 700 smackaroonies in my pocket. IMHO. Just wondering ur thoughts if u've got one and if u use it much still? Or if u wanted to get one...my advise would be to somehow raod test one and feel how uncomfortable it is, then decide. Or if also u tried one and thought it was rubbish, i would like to also hear about it.
