I've been looking at getting a HR monitor for a while now (starting to "train" some instead of just "ride"). I just got an email from Nashbar that prompted me to look at their sale page, and they have two HRMs at decent discounts. I was wondering if anyone here has used either of them and could make a recommendation as to which one would be the better buy.
Sigma Sport Shape HRM $29.95 HERE
Polar S150 Heart Monitor $69.95 HERE
Polar seems to be the "name-brand" HRM, but it is twice as much as the Sigma. As a college student $$$ is tight so the price difference could be important unless the extra features of the Polar are useful and make it a significantly better unit.
What do you all think?
