|There was some discussion about inexpensive HRM on this board a few days ago. You might want to check it out.
That said, I have owned a Club for two years and have had no problems with it whatsoever. Others, however, tell tales of CardioSport woe, everything short of the unit exploding in mid-ridel
I don't know about that. I just know I've got one, it works great, and I"m not tempted to buy a more expensive one anytime soon.

|I've got the Sports Instruments SI80HR & it's been working fine, since we got it running. Intially the HR belt was DOA & computer had a problem. I paid around $76 & this is comes with a cyclecomputer & is wireless, which I like.
Just so you know, basic is basic & they don't have a wide range of functions, that might be good for serious training. Also, most HRM don't work near power lines with transfomers.

|Used one two years, seems accurate, no problems at all except the transmitter belt eats $4 batteries (need to be replaced every few months). Haven't felt any need to 'upgrade' either.|| |
