I have the Polar F4 (lower end model) and it allows you to enter your stats and then it gives you your best workout range and does track calories burned, your heart rate while you exercise, then gives a summary of time/length of workout, amount of time in range, average rate, highest rate, calories burned and is easy to use.

It also tells time and date!

I will look into that. I guess I'm basically looking for something that will track my calorie burn off rate, heart rate, and then let me know or inform me where I should be at for the maximum benefit of a work out.

Will the Polar F6 accomplish this? And does it have a watch set up to put on the bars of the bike?

Jim,

I googled Sette and couldn't find anything; probably not a good sign and maybe the reason that a "$150" monitor is on sale for 30 bucks.

You're going to be using the HR monitor for years to come. Buy the low end model of a name brand. I have had a Polar F6 for 3 years. No complaints.

I'd rather be sitting on my bike thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my bike ...

I don't have this kind but above are some review/ratings on many brands

Seems like a bargain!

Hi

Any one have an opinion on the Sette Stellar F28 HRM? This is on pricepoint.com web site for $29.98 until August 31 regularly $150.00. Is this good or should I look at something else.

B'day and X-mas are coming up;-) LOL
