I recently bought the Polar FT7, which I think is an updated version of the F4. I like it a lot. it shows heart rate and calories burned during a workout, plus gives you stats after the workout including duration, average heart rate and max heart rate. I think it was $77 with free shipping from Amazon. I find I burn around 400 net calories during my zumba workouts that are about 50-55 min long. I did a zumba masterclass last night that was 1 hr. 45 min and burned 800! whoo! I LOVE my HR monitor.

Ihavea Polar F4 and love it, I have had it for years but don't remember what I paid. Check on ebay or amazon for any Polar and it should be well worth it.

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this or not - but since I've started doing Zumba I really want to track more accurately the calories I burn. I'm looking for some suggestions on heart rate monitors. I want a good one that is easy to use, but one that is not very expensive.

It took a bit of sweet talking to get my hubby to agree to the cost of the Zumba DVDs - especially since I've tried other things in the past and not stuck with it. At this point our finances can't really afford for me to get an expensive HR monitor - but I do want to make sure the money I do spend is not thrown down the drain. However, I have no idea how to do a good comparison of the different options.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
