I have an old Polar HRM on my stationary bike - it's called the Pacer, and it's been chugging along for about 6-7 years now! - and I'm looking for a similar model for my road bike. Similar, except I'd like it to have a stop watch displayed along with the heart rate one the main screen .
It seems that Polar goes from the "Beat" model (just the heart rate, nothing else) up to models that have hi-lo thresholds, beeps, multiple lap times, calories burned (useless info, IMHO), and other bells and whistles that I really don't want or need.
So, my question is: Do any of you know of a model (doen't have to be Polar) that you strap on and it displays - on ONE screen - your continuous HR and the elapsed time???
Thanks for your input.
