Some goof stole my speedometer off my handlebar as I walked away from the bike for 2 minutes last week, and I was thinking of just getting a heart rate monitor to replace it. After all, it's not how fast I go, but how hard I'm working right?
Anyway, I'm pretty sure I just want the most basic model and the most basic and lowest priced Polar runs $88 in Vancouver. I was shopping at The Real Canadian Superstore and I noticed they had a Bios heart rate monitor for $60.
Are the 2 brands really that different?
I'm the kind of guy that wears a $10 watch for 20 years because it works fine but if the Bios is inaccurate or will malfunction, it won't be worth the money. Still I couldn't understand how the basic electronic functions between the brands could be that much different and, generally speaking, electronic goods these days are fairly reliable. My remote for the TV cost $15 and it works as well as my previous remote that cost $40.
