I finally started getting back to the gym this summer and although the cardio equipment have heart rate on them,none of them work consistantly enough so that is my major reason for looking for dependable heart rate moniter

This is a great piece of equipment, and I got mine with the speed sensor for around $150 off amazon. One of the best features is that it comes with a little wireless usb adapter that you plug into your comp it then every time you walk near you computer with a new workout on your watch it uploads straight to garmin.com. It gives detailed reports on heartrate, speed, and cadence(I know most mtn bikers don't use it, but I like it). The only issue I have with it is for some reason Garmin thought it would be a good idea to base calories on speed if you are using the sensor and this is a big no no(works fine for road bikes but not for mtn bikes), but I am hoping they correct this in one of thier updates.
