Heart Rate Monitor Help
After 2 years of riding I am finally going to get serious about training. I want to be competitive in TT and crits this year so I am going to structure my training as much as possible. I signed up for TrainingPeaks.com to design/setup workouts, etc.
As part of that I am looking to get a new HRM to replace my basic Polar that I have been using. I want one that has the capability of keeping track of 5 zones at once so I can record the amount of time in each zone/workout. It would also be nice to have the capability of "laps" that show the HR for a subset of the total workout, such as when I am doing intervals, etc. I don't think I need much more than that unless there was some kind of download capability into Training Peaks.com. There are so many brands out there so I was hoping to get some help narrowing the field. I don't want to spend more than I have to because I don't need GPS, bike computer, power recording, etc.
