I've only just started to read through some threads regarding heart monitors. I'm sure there's a lot more out here somewhere but I thought I'd post a question anyway. I have a bike computer already, Cateye Astrale. How much of a heart monitor do I need to compliment this? Can I presume that it's best to mount the monitor on the handlebars as opposed to wearing on your wrist so it's easier to view?
I've been to the Polar site and based on their reputation, I think that's what I'd go with. I just don't know if I need something from their "cycling/bike computer line" or if something else would do. Lastly, what is the best way to learn how to effectively use a monitor? Is there a short and simple book on the subject?
