Circuit 7 HRM? Anyone tried it?(5 posts)

Circuit 7 HRM? Anyone tried it?Like2bike

Just curious if anyone has tried or owns one of those circuit 7 Heart Rate Monitors that Colorado Cyclist has on sale? I just need a cheap HRM to replace an ancient Polar Pacer that I have.

Thanks
Tim

I've had one for about three months. Bought it on EBay for $52. I have no complaints. It works well and is easy to use.
Not cheap, just inexpensive...Curtis

I don't consider the Circuit 7 a "cheap" HRM, just an inexpensive one. I bought one a few months ago when my girlfriens took a liking to my Vetta HRM. I love the new one. Easy to use, simple and elegant handlebar mount, lots of features.... I particularly like the Interval Chronometer, which allows you to set an interval HR and a recovery HR, automatically records how long each recovery took and "yells" at you when it's time to get up to interval again. One problem, though...the software that came with it (for tracking performance; not integral to the operation of the unit) wouldn't run on my computer.

I had a really bad experience with a Sport Instruments monitor. I went back to POlar. No range, bad controls, erratic readings.

I've had the circuit 7 for about 3 months and I love it. It has a large amount of functions and is pretty easy to use once you figure everything out. You're able to program zones and at the end of your ride it will tell you how long you spent in each zone which is extremely useful. The only bad thing is that I took a digger about 2 weeks after I got it and scratched the face of it. It's still readable though and works well. For $60 bucks it was a great deal.
