I have a Polar F4 with a chest strap. I love it and you really don't notice the strap after a while. I am endowed with a chest and I'm still comfortable with the strap under my sports bra. There's a transmitter on the strap that sits directly over the heart.

From what I've read, the chest straps tend to give more accurate results.

I love my Polar. If you opt for the one with the the fabric chest strap, you don't even feel it. They are very reliable and last a long time if you take care of them. When one strap went bad, I just bought a replacement on Amazon and used the same watch band.

And they finally changed the battery compartment on the strap so it's easier to get open to replace it.

I love my polar with the chest strap. You really can't tell the chest strap is there.

Hi,

You may want to check out Consumer Reports--however, my take is that the chest transmitter version such as Polar tend to be far more reliable than those that use the wrist.

Are there any reliable watch-only (i.e. NON-chest-strap) heart-rate-monitors out there that any of you would recommend?

Thanks in advance for your advice :)
