Cyclometer/HRM suggestions

I have been using a Cateye wireless cyclometer and a separate HRM. I would like to combine the two
into one device and view the data on my PC. Whats good, what is not. I have my eye on the HAC 4
from ciclosport. The hac 4 seems to have everything, HRM, and bike functions. The Hac 4 and Hac 4 plus look like the same product except the Hac 4 plus has the USB cable and software included and the
Hac4 it is an option.

I know that Polar also makes a cyclometer that interfaces with your PC as well.

I really want to be able to track my progress on a computer.

Any info will be appreciated greatly
Thanks
John

I'd recommend the polar cs200 or so. Pretty cheap and combines everything you'd want with computer downlload.

+1 for the Polar CS200. Even better is the CS200cad, which is triple-wireless (speed, cadence, and heart rate). I love mine.

Thanks. I have been looking at the HAC 4 plus from Ciclosport, but the Polar product looks pretty good.
How long have you been using yours?

I have been researching this for a while. It is hard to find a product that interfaces with a computer.
I am going to take a hard look at the Polar product now. I just printed out a comparison chart showing all the features. Polar really seems to have the market cornered in the PC/HRM market.
Thanks.
John

Garmin GPS Cyclocomputer?

but it's not out until January 2006. Has more features than the cs200cad but is about double the money.

Polar is not a good idea if you are mostly into cycling. It doesn't have a running odometer built in - it's just good for people who run and "happen" to cycle. The HAC4 is designed for cycling and "happens" to be good for skiing. The HAC4 is the one to buy, trust me, I did a ton of research and just got Hac'd.
