Thanks so much everyone. That gives me a variety of devices to look up and decide which one will be most helpful to me.

I use a polar FT4F, and it's tremendously useful. The calorie count is nice (even though no device, no matter how good, is going to be completely accurate outside of a lab), and being able to accurately watch your heart rate while exercising will help you fine tune your program. You don't have to be a super athlete to get good use out of an HRM - I find it very useful for pacing myself when I run outdoors.

It's definitely worth researching, but I'm extremely happy with Polar.

I use a fitbit...

Www.fitbit.com

I find it very accurate and very unobtrusive. Syncing the fitbit with the web is simple as is charging the unit.

There is a good web site that allows you to track your progress and food and for a premium you can get some pretty detailsed reports.

It really helped me get into moving and walking as it allowed me to see how far along reaching my daily goal i was.

Only down side for these things is that they all seem to be US or Canada centric. They dont deliver or appear to really do EU etc. this is a shame but nit to worry.

I don't use one, but my husband, who considers himself a "serious" athlete and does a variety of ST and cardio, does. He uses the Polar and considers it accurate.

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.

No recommendation from me, but I am most likely going to buy the Garmin Forerunner 305. It's been highly recommended to me by several people.

I have the bodybugg and I love it! I haven't tried anything else but lots of people use heart rate monitors and seem to like them!

Hello everyone! I am thinking about getting a calorie counting device to help me more accurately track the calories I burn while working out. Many people recommend the Polar heart rate monitors but I know there are others. What are you using? Do you like it or wish you would have bought something else? Thanks for any suggestions.
