I have a Mio Petite, and I love it. You can put your height, weight, resting heart rate and all that stuff into it so it is personalized. It tracks your heart rate, your calories burned and keeps track of your calories burned for the week.

I have the Polar FT4. It's a great HRM. Nothing too fancy or difficult to use. It's not too expensive either. I got mine on Amazon.

Hi! I have a Polar FT4, and it measures my calorie burn. I think it does a few other things, but I just wanted one for that.

You'll want to find one that has a chest strap (more accurate) and allows you to enter and track your age, weight, and gender if at all possible. They all do basically the same thing, you just want to look at the available models and see what has the extra features you want. If you don't want all that, you can pick up a decent one at Walmart for cheap.

Don't worry about a heart rate goal when working out; those "heart rate zones" are for curiosity purposes, not real training. HRMs are best for tracking, not goal-setting, in my opinion. If you have a medical condition, of course that's different, but you should be challenging yourself based on your exertion, not your heart rate.
