Who can recommend a good heart rate monitor?Masi3V

I'm looking for a middle of the road heartrate monitor, one with hi-lo alarms, average heart rate...(other feature to look for?)...as well as time, and stopwatch, maybe countdown timers to time intervals.

Thanks,
Ryan

A few months back I bought a Sports Instruments 7 HRM. It has HR, Stop Watch, Lap time, Average HR over time, average HR per lap (very cool for intervals). It works very well and comes with a velcro strap that is easy to attach to the bars. I think you can get them a Supergo.com for $60-70 and I have seen them on e-bay for $50, which is a steel either way for a HRM with these functions. To date, it has worked flawlessly. Dan O'C

It has ALL the features you can imagine and its not terrible expensive. After 1.5 years of using one its perfect. The only drawback is that its not very ergonomic: small buttoms and small numbers. Check it out.

Does this product do cadence as well?

I have the Polar X-Trainer Plus, and just hate how complex the thing is to use. Very frustrating, and I paid a lot of money for it.

but I have the 2dx. All high-end HRM are complex to use. The 2dx came with a plastic card with the instructions of how to use it. Had to carry that thing around for about two weeks until I memorized how to use it and navigate through the screens.
