Polar 720i review

Any Polar 720i users out there? How do you like it? I'm planning on getting one, and was wondering about the PC hookups and the training software. Thanks.

I love my 720. I use the Polar IR to download my rides. The software is pretty nice it tells me everything I want and more. I do get the occasional spike in HR or speed but nothing real major. I would recommend getting the cadence unit. It was all pretty easy to install. The only problem I ever seem to have is with the speed sensor on the front wheel. Every now and then it goes whack and my mileage and speed get F'ed up. Usually it will show I am doing 1 mph slower or that it takes forever to get up to speed. Most of the time it is fine. I would recommend getting the 720. Best price is http://www.heartratemonitorman.com/ just drop him an email or call for current price.
