Help needed!!! What's a good heart rate monitor?

Monday, February 03, 2014

I have a Polar RS200SD that I've been having for 6 years now and the battery is dead.
I can change the chest strap battery myself but need to send the display( wrist watch part) off to service
for new battery. I was thinking should I send it off or look for a new one?
I am sure it would be cheaper to just get this one working again.

So. I was just wondering what you all had and what you liked etc? Give me some ideas as to what to do.

Thanks all in put is appreciated.

    Depends on what you want. I have 3 different HRMs (all Polar) and keep them in my gym back at work, in the car, and at home to make sure I always have one on hand.

    My go to one is the Polar RS100 watch. But what I've found is that the sensor is the most important part. I recently bought the Polar H7 Bluetooth Sensor and love it. It can synch up with any of the watches AND it can synch up via Bluetooth to my iPhone. I downloaded a free app called Digifit and it is just amazing! Not only does it give you a real time reading of your HR, but it plots out graphs and can even use your GPS to map out where you go.

    I took mine to Batteries Plus and the guy changed it for me. He said it would void the warranty, but it wasn't under warranty anymore so he did it. It was only $4. I have the Polar FT7. You may want to take it there and see what they say. I did have to re-enter my information again, but it was no big deal.
