At first I settled on a basic Timex (Timex T5G971) that I bought here on Amazon in 2011. It was great for the basics --- heart rate, avg/min/max, calories burned, etc. But that's it -- no ranges, goals, workout history, PC interface, etc. It did what it did and ran (most of the time) like a tank. It's still in use, but now by my fiancee who just needs a basic one for treadmill work. But I knew there were better ones out there, as so many of my workout buddies told me about their Polars, etc.
So I decided to look into a Polar, and settled on the FT60 after careful review of all the different models. For me, it has the perfect combo of price, durability, and especially features. And Oh, those features...
I have been using it for a month now, and it has actually changed how I conduct my workouts, and very much for the better. I use the workout target features, and the feedback that it provides is incredibly valuable -- a lot more so than I had anticipated, even after reading many similar comments from other reviewers. Instead of giving myself what seems like an arbitrary target heart range (sometimes just based on how I'm feeling during that workout), I find myself being extra motivated to make sure I complete the time and range targets, and exceed them where possible. It helps me not only plan my exertion within a given workout, but also specific activities over the course of my workout week -- all because it keeps me updated on how much activity I've had in each of the three ranges, in a given workout and over my weekly goals. It has also helped me be more realistic about how much exertion I need to put in -- sometimes not as much as I had striven for (and sometimes been discouraged about when I failed to achieve that arbitrary goal). I also find myself mixing up what I'm doing, vs. falling into workout ruts and patterns. It has helped me add variety to my workouts, and that is a good thing.
I have been pleasantly surprised by how useful the different plan scenarios are, and how the data is reported, both during a workout (cycling through the several views is very easy and very useful) and between workouts (to plan future ones). Sometimes the number of button clicks to get at the data while not working out seems excessive. But, I'd rather have those options there with the FT60's simple five-button interface than something either overcomplicated, or just too simple and basic (like my old Timex). I'm toying with the idea of getting the Flowlink to sync it to my PC, for easier data access. But I love that no matter what, I can get to useful info right on my wrist.
The display is clear and easy to read. The backlight is nothing special (certainly nowhere as good as Timex' IndiGlo, but very few are), and the watchband could be a bit more comfortable and easy to adjust. But the band is secure and works well either on my wrist or on bike handlebars.The buttons are easy to access and the keyclick sounds (which are adjustable) are a nice touch. The instruction booklet is enough to get you started, and then more details are available online -- but I figured out most of it just on my own, and very quickly. I love that I can start, pause or stop a workout with one click, and yet rarely have I accidentally done so (as opposed to my Timex, which I was always knocking and resetting my workout info).
Overall, this is a great addition to my fitness life. Highly recommended!
- extremely comfortable
- sporty yet not manly:This was a minor concern I had since it's listed for men in its name
- waterproof: atleast for showers and everyday stuff it's nice to not have to worry about it. Can't speak for swimming yet.
- I like that the heartrate is displayed full screen during a workout session and the added ability to check the time by holding the watch close to the sensor is also extremely helpful.
- easy to navigate and use.
- no stopwatch (though a work around is that you can see the duration of the workout below your heartrate during training. Assuming you can afford to keep an eye on your wrist you can use that as a timer)
- my only other "downside" was that when I tried to use the watch with my H7 sensor while the H7 was also connected to my phone it didn't work correctly. I had hoped to use the watch as a during-workout monitor and the phone as the overall record keeper so I could upload the sessions and track progress through the website (I don't have the dock for the watch) but the watch does keep its own records so it wasn't really a big deal. I suspect the issue I was having was that two devices simultaneously reading the sensor caused the battery to drain too quickly so the sensor kept dropping the signal to both devices.
Given the price and my experience so far I would definitely recommend this to a friend. Hope this helps someone!
