I've been looking at heart rate monitors for a while now and whilst this one doesn't have as many features as others unless paired to a phone the fact it doesn't need a chest strap is a deal breaker for me.

This is the lowest price I have ever seen these at

deal breaker = no deal , so don't you mean deal clincher?
#2
Hope you do actually mean deal breaker, as if you want a reliable and accurate HRM you NEED a chest strap one. And there are plenty of chest strap ones, with a lot more features than this one, for a lot less. Don't believe what their blurb says about it being accurate.

I've never used one of these but if they use the same technology as apps downloaded on phones they work as well polar, suunto or garmin heart rate monitors. Would love to see a comment from someone who has one

You couldn't be more wrong if you tried.
Firstly, It's completely accurate, just finished a sports science study for Uni of Kent. I logged my own stuff on my phone using my Mio.
As accurate as anything and way more comfortable than the chest strap. These are the most advanced wrist monitors you can get and are now incorporated in other running watches. I've used this for almost 6 months now. It's an excellent bit of kit.

Secondly, How does a chest strap have more features than a watch with a display and a timer? Being able to run to a HR zone is the best thing you can do with training, and the simple display beats any Garmin I have used. It links to endomondo to give an easier to read on the road breakdown.


This is a great watch. They are expensive to buy, and rare to get anywhere near this price. The downfall is the lack of Ant+ tech.
I have sold mine to upgrade to the Mio Link so I can lose the chest strap and connect to a garmin, which is the only way you could possibly get HR whilst swimming.
If you still want a display, get the new Fuse. But the battery is better in the Alpha though

If you want honest reviews, not just conjecture from people who have never used these, look at DC Rainmaker. The most honest, open and in depth reviews of sports watches I have ever seen,

I'll stick with my Polar FT60 thanks. Can't even notice the chest strap when it's on, it displays everything you could ever want to know including HR zones, avg and max HR, time spent in each zone etc. Not to mention being able to input your Vo2 max for even more accuracy. Comfy, accurate, cheaper.
I get decent reviews by using the products myself, not buy reading someone else's opinion.
