Is this a good buy?

I'm looking for a good HRM that won't break the bank.
I saw the S150 at a good discount... Or is it the normal price and the MSRP is inflated?

Other suggestions are welcome.

Considering I paid ~$50.00 for the bottom of the barrel model that only does current heart rate and avg heart rate 5 years ago...I'd say this is a very good price. That price is lower than any listed Froogle price AND completed listings on ebay.

However: after reading reviews of it...I'd get something else Polar S150 Reviews

humm, Interesting... Thanks for the heads-up. I guess there's a reason for it to be at such a "good price".

I'll look at other models.

Thanks again

I finally got a "Oregon Scientific" for $50. I tried it out with a 45 min. treadmill run and
I like it; Simple enough and pretty big numbers for my aging eyes.

Next step is hoping it doesn't interfere with my bike's wireless Cateye.
