Sparsely reviewed on this site...anyone have any experiences with this hrm/cyclocomputer that they'd like to share? I may get one soon, it will be my first hrm. Thanks. Go Cipo! Fuerza Simoni!

I have one and am very happy with it. I really like being able to download to my PC at home and chart and graph my progress. I enjoy being able to look at my average speed and heartrate on the same rides month to month. Only 2 real drawbacks, the unit can only store ride info for the current ride (you have to download for each ride) and if you stop for a rest stop, after a few minutes you loose your place and cannot restart without wiping out the data, you can just hit lap for a rest stop, adn just see your low HR and no speed on the graph. I also have a wired computer (Catseye Mity 2)
OK but expect some glitchesallezdude

I still haven't been able to download my heart data and the speed sensor took a lot of tweaking to get right. The "sonic" download seems like ancient technology. But for the price I don't think there's much else.
