Hey all,

 

I am looking to get a HRM.

 

What functions should I look for?  time in zone etc?

 

Looking to spend about R2500, what would you suggest?

No question get a Garmin Edge 500 from crc - hr, cadence, speed, temp, altitude etc etc evem has breadcrumbs for routing and you can load routes on it, view them on google. 

 

Unless you only want HRM ?

Then I cant give any advice.

I think it largely depends on what info you want to get out. Just Heart Rate info or are you interested in a bike computer too?

Do you own one yourself? I believe it's quite difficult to read the display when mounted on a bike

Yup, I'm going for 500 myself. Worked out that to get anything really better than what I currently have (Sigma PC9), I might as well add an extra K and get the best.

 

 

 

Its either get the 500, or get the cheapest.

Have to agree crbrundson, el-cheapo or edge 500, the middle ground really is not worth the money.

 

Like I have a suunto t3 but everything is broken and its basically worthless now, so much for the mid way option...
