Thus the battery life is a dismal 150 hours.

I was contemplating buying a watch-style heart rate monitor when I spied this product available from Polar.

This is lengthy, but I know you will find this helpful when making your purchase decision.

I am a CardioTrainer user and was excited to hear about the heart rate monitor integration. I decided to wait until some reviews were made, but the reviews here seemed very polarized (no pun intended), so I thought I would take a risk since most complaints in the reviews are: 1) lack of integration of existing Polar equipment, 2) Bluetooth issues, and 3) heart rate inaccuracy. Let me address these issues and let you know of my experience with this heart rate monitor.

1)Lack of integration of existing Polar equipment
I don't have existing equipment, so this is of no concern for me; however, for those who do have other equipment, you should read the technical details on this page: "Uses Bluetooth transmission." Now I can understand that the WearLink+ name would make you *assume* that it works with other Polar equipment in addition to the Bluetooth, but shame on you for not waiting on other people to buy it and review it.

2) Bluetooth issues
When the company says they have tested thoroughly and since there is a large split in what the reviewers say about the Bluetooth capabilities, I'm going to guess that it will work for me. This is day two for me with this heart rate monitor. I wanted to get my first impressions out before I forgot them, and let me say I have had no issues pairing with the heart rate monitor. None. I am using an HTC Evo. I am a cyclist, but I haven't tried my phone in my back jersey pocket yet. The manual says, "Do not wear the receiving device on your back," but the CTO reports they experienced no problems with their testing doing this. I have had my phone mounted to my handle bars. I'll give updates in the future.

This device has one major fault; the standard analog Polaris transmitter is completely omitted. This means it will not work with existing Polaris receivers or other compatible equipment such as treadmills. This means yet another piece of gear to sort through depending on the workout you want. Headed to gym, then get the standard one, headed for a run then take the bluetooth one. I strongly suspect that including the standard analog transmitter would have added an undetectable weight and reduced battery life from 150 hours to 145. But it would have made it so much more useful to have both signals simultaneously broadcast.

The bluetooth is everything we come to expect. It will not work at all through the human body. It will work 20 feet across the room, but not if you put the phone in your pants pocket. Outdoors away from radio reflective surfaces, if the phone is anywhere but in a close line of sight to the chest strap such as in your hand on in an arm strap then it will not work.

Bluetooth requires a connection-oriented design, the phone 'talks' back and forth with the heart rate monitor. Loose the connection even briefly and you have to manually reset it. Most other wireless heartrate monitors are connection-less, they simply broadcast and do not have to spend battery power caring if any devices are listening. Thus the battery life is a dismal 150 hours. The same battery in a standard transmitter gets about triple that.

Perhaps a better implementation for getting heart rate data into a smartphone would be an attachment for the phone (similar to what Square does with their credit card readers) or a specialized SD card which can pickup the standard Polaris heartrate monitor signals.

I gave this three stars because the design is great. When it functions properly, the integration is superb, everything I had hoped it would be. Unfortunately proper function has turned out to be the exception instead of the rule. My opinions are best explained by pasting in the email that I have sent to both Polar and WorkSmartLabs:

Spending nearly 30 minutes of precious morning workout time fiddling with a costly fitness device was the last straw.
I guess I should explain. I have been using Cardio Trainer for close to a year and loved it dearly. I have also been using HR monitors for the last eight years, and I have viewed Polar as the golden standard. When I was notified that HR integration was now available on Cardio Trainer due to collaboration with Polar, I could not be more thrilled. I waited for my next paycheck with baited breath and shelled out a little extra for express delivery because I could not wait to get started. When it arrived, I followed the instructions precisely and tested it out with a short yoga session. It worked like a dream.
That time.
Ever since then I have experienced the full range of problems that I have come to learn several users are experiencing:
1) Frequently it will not pair. Sometimes my Droid will not even pick it up. Or, if it picks it up, it will be unable to pair.
2) Just as frequently it will pair but it will not connect with Cardio Trainer. Does not matter what I do.
3) It will get stuck on inaccurate readings for several minutes at a time (we're talking as high as 254 BPM and as low as 10 BPM).
