This HRM is very easy to use. I wasn’t looking for alot of “bells and whistles”, just wanted to keep track of my BPM while working out. The chest strap is comfortable. The watch seems a little large. I have to wear it loose while holding onto the eliptical or it bugs me. I would purchase again.

Monitor works great.. if it’s new along with the battery being new

This was a replacement for my husband, the one he had was 4 years old and the battery died. Since we live in a remote area it was easier and cheaper to purchase a new one. We purchased this with the “assumption” it was brand new. Well, after 3 months it died. Screen when black, we weren’t sure how to go about replacing it since it still had a warranty. I called their headquarters in New York, they requested I fill out their form online along with all my credit card info. It was under warranty so I was very hesitant to send my cc info but I could not complete the forms unless I included the info. I decided to see if there was a repair facility near us again. Luckily there was, I called them and explained my situation. I sent the two monitors to them as they requested. Today we received a call. It seems the NEW monitor wasn’t as new as we thought (remember I had just purchased this item in June 2015). This supposedly NEW monitor was as old (4 yrs to be exact) as the old one which had quit. If we hadn’t included the sales receipt from Amazon LLC, they would not have known it had a 2 year warranty at all. So, what you think you are buying new might not be new. I am extremely disappointed in this purchase for this reason, I purchased the item thinking it was new, when it fact it was 4 years old. Now I wonder about all my other purchases from here. By the way, this was sold by Amazon LLC, but they won’t handle any warranty work on items such as this. The monitor works great, my husband loves it. You just have to send or take it to a repair facility to have a new battery installed.

Very easy to use and affordable in terms of price

Very easy to use and affordable in terms of price. Use it when doing high intensity workouts on my celluzier mini trampoline twice a week. Doing the fit 8 exercises and important to keep track of resting and active heart rates. One thing I learned that you need to moisten the chest strap electrodes slightly with water to get it to register the heartbeat on the watch. The directions that came with the watch were unclear on how to program but the online manual is much easier to understand and more thorough. Recommend.

This is all you need – don’t let them up-sell you anything else.

If you want a gadget that will persuade you to get off your butt and exercise because you want to play with lots of bells and whistles, this isn’t it. (Hint: No gadget will get you off your butt. Only you can do that.)

This is a definite MUST BUY !

This product is a STEAL! Especially with a price like that! Honestly other products that you have to pay over $100 isnt really worth it, considering we live in such a technological world today. Buying main stream products and spending hundreds of dollars you really have to ask yourself “Is it worth it” “Do i really need it or does it just look cool and I saw it on the ad”? Polar is cheap and gets to the main function is monitoring your heart rate. Also its fairly quite accurate. Must Buy!

Works fine

I’ve only had it for a few weeks and just use it when I’m on my treadmill. It came with a condensed version of instructions, I think they called it a quick start guide or something. They were somewhat helpful but it took me awhile each time I wanted to use it to get it into the exercise mode because it was pretty much trial and error. Even though this monitor doesn’t have all the fancy bells and whistles I still needed to go on line and get the regular instructions to finally know what the hell I was doing. I only use the exercise mode but so far it’s doing what I purchased it to do.

Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor

 on August 3, 2017

Just what I wanted – a basic, low cost heart rate monitor. Enough functions for my use. Used the Polar FT1 for about a month with no problems. No swimming use but it is advertised as water resistant – seems well sealed. Yes, you should download the complete user manual – I was not familiar with the one button programming so I needed the step by step directions. The info on the display is big enough to read at a glance and while in EXErise mode, the display can cycle through several real-time readouts by momentarily holding the display close to the chest monitor. By not having to press the button, it frees my other hand to hold me upright and not fall on the ground 😉 All good, bargain price and no regrets – the definition of a good purchase.
