Best Heart Rate Monitors

best heart rate monitorsWhich are the best heart rate monitors? Of course, it depends on your own preferences. Monitors nowadays come with so many functions that what is best for one user might be next to useless for another.

However, Consumer Reports journal is unafraid to make a decision. In its February 2009 issue it said:

Heart-rate monitor. The top-rated chest-strap type is Timex Personal Trainer 5G971, $55; a close second: Acumen EON Basix Plus, $50. The top-rated wrist monitor with pedometer: Sportline Solo 960, $100.

The ConsumerSearch website compiles data on the best heart rate monitors (as does this website). Its three top-rated devices are:

* Polar FT60 (picture)
* Timex T5G971
* Omron HR-100C

Amazon.com is a good place to read what actual users are saying, and you can get a fair indication from these reviews as to which are the best heart rate monitors. The best seller rankings change all the time, but two of the consistent top sellers are the Omron HR-100C and the Timex T5G971.

My own choices are, firstly, the Polar F6, which boasts a great array of features, at a reasoanble price, and from a quality manufacturer, and secondly, the ever-popular Omron HR-100C.
