I'm considering making my graduation present from being a Clydesdale either an HRM or a Cyclocomputer, or a combined unit if possible. But shopping on amazon and stuff is just a pain in the butt, and I don't know what I'm really looking at.
What I'm looking for:
HRM: All I need is something that tells me my current, average, and max, or whatever else is really important. All the nice zone and training stuff can be optional.
Cyclocomputer: Need one that gets the basics; current speed, average speed, max speed, trip and total miles. Would love cadence but can live without.
I have one of the polar watch mounts installed, came with the bike, so if i get one of the watches I can just strap it onto the bars. I know that polar makes a computer that does HR as well, but is it decent?
Would like to spend less then $100 bucks on the outfit if possible.
Thanks for the help. At my current rate of weight loss I will be below 200 in a couple weeks, and I feel great already. Once I get below 200 I know it will get tough, so the HRM is to help me keep the weight loss going , and the bike computer because mapmyride is all i have right now to get my milage, and I have no idea how fast im going (although I'm pretty sure I'm speeding downtown, I keep up with traffic and I know they aren't going the 25 mph speed limit...)
