Price is always a consideration when it comes to HRM's. You can easily go to Target and purchase a $40 HRM, but consider the quality. Buying a HRM is an investment and you get what you pay for. You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a high quality HRM, but you do want to make sure that it will last a long time. When buying a HRM go for trusted brands such as Polar, LifeSource, or Mio. Some of the cheaper models won't fit as snugly and may be heavier than higher quality brands.

Well it depends on how much you sweat.
The sensors need to be wet to read correctly.
You can buy something called Heart Rate Gel cost about $5 to $10
Some people just lick the sensors on the watch strap and it works until they can start sweat enough..
Hope this helps.

Mrd. D Holland: Here's a link to a fitness store that sells the part: http://www.fitnessrepairparts.com/cart/ViewItem/13001585

The heart monitor kit costs about $48 and about 55 total to have it shipped and it clips to your earlobe while clcling to display your heart rate. I sell a watch that looks just like a Timex Triathlon that has a large display timer and all you have to do is press a button to display your heartbeat. Many people are going to the watch monitors so they can be out walking, jogging, cycling, etc and check their heart rate at any point. If you're interested, I can ship you a brand new timer/heart rate monitor for $38, and can send pics if you want. Terpcafe@yahoo.com

It appears my F6 monitor is not keeping accurant time on calories and heart rate. I like the watch but while checking my sitting heart rate is very low. When checking the heart rate on a blood pressure...


First you need to understand that the Polar system is a medical grade device and it is calculating calories based on specific information that you have inputed and heart rate data from your heart.

Most treadmills and other exercise machines use a much simpler counter that is height and weight based to calculate calories and are generally over generous with their numbers.

Depending on the blood pressure machine you are using, the pulse (not heart rate) is coming through the brachial artery, again not quite as accurate as measuring r-r variance from your heart. There is a ton of literature you can read if you are into the accurateness of the system, but I will sum up with saying that you actual calorie expenditure will be closer on the Polar than on most other devices outside of a hospital. As too the heart rate this is also true, so more likely you are getting inaccurate numbers from the other devices.

If you want pinpoint accuracy then you will need to use the Polar RS800 or S810 devices that measure and display true R-R.

My heart rate is registering betwee 37 and 38...for resting. I know this is not accurate. This problem just started. When exercising intensely, it registers at 58 to 72. Any recommendations?


change you "HR view" to HR, not HR%. Currently you are seeing your heart rate as percentage of your Max Heart Rate (Max HR) but not by beeps per minute (bmp). Go in to the settings and see HR View.

HRM Support


There are five easy steps you should take: 1. Roughly estimate your maximum heart rate (MHR) by subtracting your age from 220 (or a little more accurately, 214-(0.8 x age) for men, and 209-(0.9 x age) for women. If you're a regular runner, you can test yourself for your MHR by warming up and then doing a combination of short, fast runs as follows, ideally on a treadmill: run as fast as you can, evenly, for three minutes, then rest with two or three minutes gentle running, then repeat your three-minute maximal run; at some stage during the second effort you should get a higher MHR value than with any other method. 2. Work out your training zones: 50-60 per cent of maximum for easy recovery runs; 60-70 per cent for basic weight management; 70-80 per cent for aerobic training; and 80-100 per cent for threshold runs and speed training. The figures are more accurate if you find percentages of your working heart rate, then add them to your resting heart rate. You find your working heart rate by subtracting your resting heart rate from your maximum. 3. If you don't already have a training schedule, plan your runs for the week ahead and allocate a target heart rate zone for each run. 4. Stick to these zones. 5. Be alert for unusual readings. If you're ill, tired, stressed or not fully recovered from a race, then your resting heart rate may be higher than normal. If it's 5-10 beats above normal, make your day's run an easy one. Any higher than that and you should definitely have a rest day.

Inaccurate/intermittent heart rate info?


Here are the things I have noticed that help:
- enough moisture between the HR monitor and your chest. Apply water right before your workout to make sure it isn't all dry between the time you put on your monitor and when you actually started your workout.
- Make sure the strap is tight enough. Mine gets loose over time and the bouncing of running will give me inaccurate readings until I tighten it up again. You can test if this is the problem by using your hands to press the monitor more tightly against your chest - if that seems to fix the problem that a loose strap could be it.
- Use a "conductive gel" instead of water between the monitor and your chest. Conductive gels are pretty cheap.
