Mutlivitamin and heart rate suggestions? yes, 2 questions in one

Just wondering for overall health which multivitamin should I take. Something not crazy expensive, and someone that promotes general health. I'm currently taking calcium and vitamin e pills. I'm asking which brand btw, I don't need any mumbo jumbo about taking vitamins vs getting nutrition from fresh veggies.





Also, I was hoping for some reviews/feedback on the polar s150 and the F6.
Good heart rate monitor for a beginner?

I take the Whole Foods' brand multivitamin. Just find one that doesn't have like 1000% of vitamins in them.

The S150 has many more features than the F6. Problem with the F6, no lap/split timer.

You should get the S150. You're a beginner, but it has features available should you decide to use them later. These things have been on sale for almost a year now at, for example, Performance.

Centrum chewables because I hate swallowing pills. Basically anything that doesn't have more than 100%, especially of the fat soluble vitamins(Vit. E for example). It either just gets peed out or accumulates in toxic levels in your adipose. Just a waste of money.

CVS weight smart. It has 100% vitamin k. Most other multivitamins seem to be very low on this.
