|I'm looking for opinions on both of these watches. Both have HR, altitude, temp. Both can record and download to PC. The Polar is less expensive and can add power/cadence with additional $$$. The Suunto just plain looks cool (call me petty but that counts for something). |
So, I ask you, the jury of gear buying cyclists, what do you think?

|The Suunto's strap and HR technology are from Polar...||Fez|

|so either one will read heart rates just fine.
The Polar 720 is a very sophisticated cycling specific HRM.
The Suunto has much more basic HR features, but a lot of "outdoorsy" features. The Suunto will have a better altitude and temp function, and a lot of great stuff for off the bike.
The 720 does have computer download capability, but it really is overkill for a lot of folks.

|Polar and Suunto are both originally from Finland and use the exact same chest strap, and technology. Suunto offers a lot more options that are non bicycle specific (climbing/hiking/skiing). However, if your using your HRM only for your cycling needs, Polar has the advantage.|| |
