Polar Heart Rate Monitors

Polar F6 heart rate monitorPolar manufactures a big variety of hugely popular heart rate monitors, with sales in more than 80 countries. These range from the very basic FS1 - a heart rate monitor and not much more, usually selling for around $60 - to the $700 CS600X model for cyclists, which incorporates a GPS system. You can read more at the Polar corporate website, where the company divides its products into three groupings - running, cycling and fitness.

For those wanting just a very basic heart rate monitor, the popular FS1 is ideal. It displays the time of day, your actual heart rate during your workout, the workout time elapsed, and at the end of your workout it displays your average heart rate during your workout. It also has an optional alarm feature to keep you within you heart rate range during your workout. The FS2 offers a few extras.

The $120 Polar F6 (pictured), designed for fitness and cross training, is one of the company's most popular monitors, thanks to an impressive array of features. Also popular is the Polar F11, which gives you personal guidance on how often, how hard, and how long you need to exercise to reach your personal fitness goals.

The $120 RS100 is Polar's basic entry-level heart rate monitor watch for runners. You can read more here, including highly laudatory reviews from Runner's World and the Boston Globe. The latter newspaper described it as one of the two best options for casual runner.

One of the best sources of information is the Polar Store at Amazon.com, where you can find special offers and promotions, as well as user reviews and details about new products.
