I am asking for a HRM for Christmas. :) We have a Polar one that came
with our Precor treadmill, but a year after the strap stretched out, the
plastic on the strap broke so it's fairly unuseable now. I'd like
something I can use while not on the treadmill. (working with the
treadmill and other precors at the gym is a bonus, I'm not a huge watch
I understand the Polar monitors don't have replaceable batteries. I was
searching various websites and came across the Cardiosport Nashbar at http://www.heartmonitors.com
Problem is, that seems to be the only place I see that. I googled usenet
for other references and didn't see anything other than the Bike Nashbar
brand. Even Cardiosports web site doesn't mention the Nashbar.
However, they do have a HeartSafe TZ which seems to be identical in
features. Again, not much in usenet about this model (that's current, a
few things from the late 90's)
Is this a one-off piece that heartmonitors.com sells or is it really a
piece Cardiosport sells/sold?
Any other suggestions in from $75 - $125? This will be for walking, step
class, weight lifting and as much running as my body can handle.
