GPS Heart Rate Monitor

GPS heart rate monitorGarmin is the most famous GPS heart rate monitor company, with the Forerunner range for runners and the Edge range for cyclists. My report on Garmin is here.

The models are as follows:

Forerunner GPS Systems for Runners

* Garmin Forerunner 301 GPS Personal Training Device
* Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver With Heart Rate Monitor (picture)
* Garmin Forerunner 310XT GPS Enabled Sports Watch with Heart Rate Monitor
* Garmin Forerunner 405 Wireless GPS-Enabled Sports Watch with Heart Rate Monitor
* Garmin Forerunner 405CX GPS Sport Watch with Heart Rate Monitor

Edge GPS Systems for Cyclists

* Garmin Edge 305 Bicycle GPS Navigator with Heart Rate Monitor and Speed/Cadence Sensor
* Garmin Edge 500 Bicycle GPS Unit
* Garmin Edge 705 GPS-Enabled Cycling Computer

The best way to learn more is at the Garmin corporate website or the Garmin store at Amazon.com, where you can find special offers and promotions, as well as user reviews and details about new products.

By far the most popular Garmin GPS heart rate monitor is the Forerunner 305 (picture), which has attracted an amazing 1,000+ user reviews at Amazon.com, with an overwhelming number of the reviewers awarding it four or five stars (out of five). You will also easily find numerous favorable reviews elsewhere on the internet. Indeed, Amazon.com (which is often selling the device at 49% less than the $299.99 list price) has its own independent review, which states:

Just when you thought Garmin had cornered the market on powerful, affordable, and effective wrist-mounted GPS devices, here comes the Forerunner 305. The release of this device is a major achievement from a design and technology perspective. This isn't just marketing-speak; the Forerunner 305 is the most accurate, most reliable wrist-mounted performance and GPS tracking tool we've ever tested. Yes, it's that good.

While no device this compact can do everything (yet), the 305 pushes the boundaries of what is possible from something strapped around your wrist. The 305 model includes wireless heartrate monitoring and it can also be connected to Garmin's wireless bicycle speed and cadence sensor.

Polar also makes a GPS heart rate monitor system, the Polar G3 GPS sensor, which links with the RS800 monitor. It also sells the G1 GPS Speed and Distance Sensor, which links with several of its heart monitors.

For up-to-date details on Polar, check out the Polar Store at Amazon.com, where you can find special offers and promotions, as well as user reviews and information on new products.
