Wired magazine gave it a brief review:

The secret to a hard body isn't just working harder, it's also knowing when to give it a rest. Polar's FT80 heart rate monitor helps you find that elusive edge where effort translates to maximum improvement.

Rather than simply counting beats per minute, it actually tracks your recovery time to tell you when to hit the next interval and when to take a breather. Onscreen graphic feedback makes it easy to follow orders. Back home, the unit syncs wirelessly with Polar's savvy Web service for powerful post-workout evaluation.

Best yet, it won't look out of place when you transition from sports club to nightclub.

The Trusted Reviews website featured a rave review, spread over several pages. It concluded:

I've been using Polar heart rate monitors for years, but calling the FT80 just a heart rate monitor is like calling the McLaren F1 just a car. What Polar has created is a product that's truly worthy of the Fitness Computer moniker. The level of functionality is staggering, while the general build quality and ease of use are also first rate.

If you do a lot of training outside the G1 GPS sensor is well worth the extra cost and just adds to the already impressive amount of data gathered by the FT80. Polar has also thrown in the simplest data synchronisation system I've ever encountered, and a web portal that makes sure you get the most out of all your training data.

If you're serious about improving, maintaining or maximising your fitness level, the FT80 will help you every step of the way. For me, the FT80 has been something of a revelation - in the short time I've been using it, it has already significantly improved the way I train, and consequently the results from those training sessions. In short, I'll definitely be buying one of these.
