    5.0 out of 5 stars Not Too Basic and Not Too High Tech, January 30, 2010
    By 
    AthenaKTT (Los Angeles, CA USA) -
    Before settling on the Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor, I did a lot of research on the various types of HRM out there. I was looking for a HRM that wouldn't just give me my heart rate, but I also wanted a bit more features, but I didn't need a lot of features that the higher numbered FT models offered.

    When I saw the FT7 model, I was surprised to see so little reviews or mentions of this model. I'm not sure why, maybe this is a newer model or Polar just prefers directing people to the more expensive models because I kept seeing numerous reviews for the F6 or F7, FT40, and FT60 models.

    After comparing various Polar HRMs, I settled for the FT7 because it had all the features that I was looking for in a HRM.

    Watch/HRM

    - Monitors heart rates. I found the monitoring to be accurate except underwater. (I'll go into detail about that a bit later.)
    - Counts Calories. The Calorie counter seems to be quite accurate. I have used it for walking, spinning classes, swimming, and strength training sessions and the calorie counts are reasonable.
    - Target heart rate graph. The graph is useful for seeing where you are and if you're within your minimum and maximum HR "fitness" ranges during a session.
    - Very user friendly. Even though there aren't any instructions on setting up the watch, I didn't think they were needed. I didn't even bother looking at the manual until I was done configuring the watch, but I've never been one to read manuals. However, others may find the lack of a detailed manual a bit frustrating.
    - Stores Training Files. Which include records of session durations, calories burned, average HR, Maximum HR, and the amount of time your workout HR was spent in the target range.
    - Weekly Summaries. This basically sums up the total amount of time spent training, the total calories during each session, and how many sessions during the week.
    - Settings are very easy to change especially if you have any weight changes and want to keep an accurate count of calories being burned.
    - There is also a backlight, which is quite handy if you're somewhere with minimal lighting.
    - I also found out that if you hold the "down arrow" button, you can change the time to a second time zone that you can set by going through the "quick menu" which is accessed by holding down the "backlight button (*)" which also leads to the "button lock" feature. If you hold down the "up arrow" button, you can change the "Watch face" to just display the time and date or the time and date and logo, which is smaller on the face, but it includes seconds and FT7 logo along the bottom.
    - The women's watch is black with a gold stripe down the center of the band. I found the design to be all right. It is less flashy and colorful as the other models, which is one reason I like this watch. I can wear it with my work clothes and it does not stand out much.
    - User changeable batteries. This was something I really wanted out of my HRM. I never liked sending something to the manufacturer for replacements even under warranty. I just don't like dealing with shipping, waiting, and extra fees.
    - Water Resistant. I have used this HRM in the pool and the monitoring is relatively accurate when it actually reads the transmitter. I believe the Polar website notes that in some highly chlorinated pools or seawater the transmitter will not be picked up underwater. The pool in my gym is very chlorinated and there were times when the HRM will not pick up my heart rate. But if I just sit still in the water for a minute or so the watch will pick up the signal again. Though this can get annoying if you are trying to swim laps for endurance. The watch still gives me a fair calculation of calories I have burned during my swim sessions. Though the calorie count is most likely lower since I'm not sure how long the watch is not reading my heart rate during times when I am swimming several laps nonstop. I also tried using this in a saltwater treated pool and the moment I went underwater the transmitter does not work at all. So I'm guessing that this HRM will not work if you are swimming in the ocean.

    Chest Strap

    - The Chest strap is very comfortable, and I usually don't feel it, but then again it might be because I'm used to having something strapped around my chest all day. And I have had no problems of it slipping. It is also recommended to wet the straps a little. I usually just wet my hands a bit and rub against the cloth area, and I'm good to go.
    - User changeable batteries. The transmitter pops off easily from the strap, and like the watch, I can change my own batteries, but unfortunately the watch and transmitter use different types of batteries.
    - Another perk is that most of the machines in my gym also pick up the transmitter readings, allowing me not have to keep glancing at my watch while I'm on the elliptical or cycling.

    I love this product! Alot of people wants to know what's the difference between the ft4 and the ft7 the ft7 tells you how much of the workout was fat burning or fitness. This piece of information is crucial for someone who's serious about loosing weight. It also helps you figure out your workout that are actually better for your weight loss goals. The color is awesome I'm a girly girl so pink in lilac is cute.

    Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    I purchased this watch and it was great in the beginning but after about 6 months the battery died and the monitor kept saying 00 or saying a crazy high number like 210 when I was walking. I replaced the batteries on the watch and monitor just in case. The watch now works, but the monitor keeps saying 00, or holds the HR only when my arm is right next to my chest. I will now have to buy a replacement belt, which isn't cheap...
