I have had a Polar F4 for the last 2+ years and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Its awesome and I am comfortable with its level of accuracy. All HRMs are estimates for calorie burn as there is no easy way to measure exact energy expenditure. But, with the chest strap, Max HR and weight settings, I am comfortable that my polar is as accurate as anything else out there. I bought my sister one for her birthday and she loves it too.

They have the best prices and no shipping charges (and often overnight delivery). I got my sister's F6 for $93 in January. I just looked and the women's F6 is on sale for $86 with 2-3 day free shipping.

Hi, I have a Polar F6 and it has been great.
Not sure how accurate it is - because the user programs in their weight, target rate, etc. But it has been easy to use and the instructions are straight forward.
Best of luck in your search.

I have a simple heart rate monitor that doesn't have a chest strap to periodically check that I am in my target range but I really feel I'm really to go up to a proper HRM that monitors consistently throughout my workout and can give me TRUE calories burned. Any suggestions on the right make and model to buy? The choices seem too daunting for words....
