If I ride with a guy that has a Polar monitor, and I have one too, am I going to get a lot of interference. How close will I have to get to him before our monitors start messing up?

what type of polar hrm are u using?...if u use a coded transmitter u shouldn't get any cross talk.
check your user guide for information about this topic or even try the polar website.

hope this helps.

I haven't bought one yet. I'm thinking about the Euro Favor in CC for 40 bucks, and it just crossed my mind that I might get some interference with other riders. I think I remember hearing somewhere what all Polars used the same frequency, but maybe they're all coded? I don't know...

And Polar doesn't even list stuff for the old line anymore, just the newfangled A, S series. And those aren't on sale.

And while I'm rambling, is it more useful to have a target zone beep deal (a la Favor) or an average heart rate readout (a la A1).

And does anyone know of a place to get a Polar monitor for <$40?
