Sigma Sport PC 15 Heart Rate Monitor

Does anyone have experience with this HRM? How is Sigma Sport for reliability?

thanks

i have been using sigma sport pc-1300 for almost a year now. so far so good. i have no bad times with it except when you want to get it started where you need to put some water/saliva to moisture the contact betweeen your skin and the band. the reading is quite precise as well.

I have a 5 year old PC-6 from Sigma Sport. It's low end has lacks a lot of the bells and whistles, but it does it's job. My only beef is that it doesn't register low enough (but I don't think any HRM does). My resting heart rate is sub-40, but my HRM reads double zero when it gets lower than 40.

I've been using a Sigma Sport cyclocomputer and HRM for the past year or two and both are working flawlessly.

I have been using the PC-15 for 8 months now. I used to use a Ciocliosport model with the same features but double the price. I always got very spotty results tiwh the Ciclosport, but the Sigma Sport PC-15 has been flawless...lots of features, three programmable heart rate zones, calorie counter, etc., for a good price. I only get spotty reception when riding under power lines. Even during races with other HR monitor wearers I've had good reception. Only good things to say about it!!

Thank you for the replies and especially for the specific post on the PC 15. It has many of the features of the Polar F11 which is about $150 but for less than half the cost. Thanks for the insights.
