What to Buy???

Options
I want to get a HR monitor but don't know anything about them. I've looked a little on Amazon. Does any one have the BodyMedia LINK Armband Weight Management System?

Is that good? Is there something else you would suggest?

    I have a Polaris HRM and Bodymedia Core armband. Really loved the Core but was very noticeable on my arm. I plan on using it again very soon. Love my Polaris too but only wore it when I exercised. Which is why I went to the Bodymedia so I could see what I burned all day instead of just when I was exercising. Only downside...the subscription fee, otherwise no complaints :) Hope that helps!

    I have BMF and I love it! Right now it is on sale at Costo for 99$ and that comes with a free year with no monthly fee.

    Seriously? I was going to stop at Costco today too but changed my mind.

    I have a bodymedia fit core and a polar ft4. I now wear the bmf all the time. It is noticeable, especially now that short sleeves are back. I really like the bmf, and the fact that it keeps track of things all day. But it does not seem to do weight training accurately. I don't lift heavy, but I do Bodypump, and it has a hard time tracking it. I have to use my HRM for that class.

    You have to buy it on costco.com. I don't know how long they will last at that price. I've had mine 3 weeks and paid 150.

    Does anyone know about the Polar FT60? Can you wear that all the time? I can't really tell by the product info.
