Polar FT80


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone


I am considering buying a new watch. With that in mind thought why not score, by getting a heart rate monitor which can double as a watch. After some looking around  my eyes fell on the Polar FT80. As most of the other HRM's reminded me of the Casio calculator watches of the 80's.


I need to balance form and function and and need something that does not look out of place with a Hugo Boss suit.Wink


So my questions are:-

1. As a cycling tool, how appropraite is the FT80 if i buy it with the G1 gps accesory?

2. Does anyone have any experience with it?

3. Is there any other options i can look at?

Doesn't look bad at all.

I also saw it on the web.

Just one thing - these gadgets with ad-ons never work as good as a full dedicated item made specific for a job.

For a watch I would rather go for a actual watch and for cycling I would go for Polar CS200 (its cheap and has all features necessary for cycling).
Otherwise go all out and buy a Garmin GPS.
