Computer with Heart Rate Moniter(4 posts)

Computer with Heart Rate MoniterHerms

Does anyone know of or own a cycling computer with a heart rate moniter, and what do you think of them. I've heard of the cateye HB 100, but im wondering if there's other ones out there. It seems like it'd be nice to have all those functions in one unit.

Thanks in advance- T

The Polar S510 or S710 are super sweet but you pay for such a nice package. They come with a speed sensor and you can add on a cadence and possibly a power sensor (not readily available yet) as well. Then you can upload it to the computer with an inferred uplink (extra as well but well worth it). It's super sweet! The graphs it plots with time, heart rate, speed, cadence and altitude (only on the 710) are very cool especially if your a racer or just love recording what your doing.

Take it easy,

I have both the Polar and the Cateye. If you want I would not mind parting with one of them (cheap) if you would like it.

I use a cateye 3dx. It does everything I need. Because it is also a watch, my wife uses it on runs. i hate to plug something, but i have a 2dx on ebay right now. it is the same as the 3dx but without cadence (which i don't use anyway). it is new and the price is really low. i'm not getting rich off selling it - just trying to unload unneeded equipment to someone who will use it. i have used polars before and they are great, but more costly. i've never used the download feature much, but it is super useful to see the length of time you spent in certain zones.
