Heart Rate monitor

    Anyone know where I can get a good cheap heart rate monitor for cv exercising? I wanna monitor my heart rate so I stay within a certain zone. Thx!


    I saw one in Boots today for £4.99. It was thier own brand.

    At £4.99 probably not HRM - probably one of those place your finger here and indicate pulse. No good for exerecising.

    I just got second hand HRM from ebay - plenty to choose from there and some bargains (as well as some rubbish). Have a good shop around.

    I got this one for £8 from ebay, without instructions but got one from Argos, copied instructions and returned under 14 day return rule:…901

    amazon have an Oregon (pretty reasonable brand) watch with HRM for £17.49 IIRC. Cant link to it now but it should be easy enough to find from their search facility...

    yeah but it has mixed reviews, not sure if I should take the risk

    Mine is from 'Polar' which are probably one of the best manufactures. Getting them cheap can be difficult but you can a get bargain on older models.

    which model do u have?

    Mines an old model now, Polar M61. When I ordered it was half the price of the current model at the time (12 months ago)

    Hi if you want to get something more expensive try boots. They have a clearance instore of polar ones.I think you might find some online too, depends how much you want to spend. I went today and they were doing a polar (i think f6) for £30. That was in basildon essex.

    Newitts have 20% off Polar HRM's + quidco - the cheapest is about 27 quid plus postage
