how helpful are they?

what are some of the necessary features and recommended brands/models?

found a great deal on a polar m52. is it worth considering?

thanks

I have a Cardiosport Limit Plus and have found it very helpful in determining how fast I can ride and in making sure I am keeping up my effort. This is a basic model that gives you an upper and lower rate alarm, and that is about it. I don't know how much it will help me in training but it was nice on the last 45 mile ride I did because it showed me I was pushing too hard on hils and not enough on long flat stretches.
