    Very easy to use. I do a lot of cross training, and it would be nice to be able to change the workout type. But, it is great for keeping me in the training zone!

    Comments about Womens Polar FT4 HRM Monitors:

    I had the previous Polar F 4 and it had a better, more comfortable chest strap. I had to exchange the new F4 chest strap for one that didn't dig into my skin. It was made of rough sewn plastic rubber material. They were good about exchanging it! They sent a smoother one out asap.It still isn't as comfortable as the old one.
    I obviously don't like this new F4. The wrist strap gets caught on my clothing.
    I do like one feature and that the heart rate reading is large and easy to read otherwise everything else is quite small and hard to read without my glasses. Also, I don't like the buttons or "pins". Hard to hit properly, they are too stiff. This model also doesn't seem to give me my h.r. levels when I have exceded my limit.I wish I had the old one again! Polar is a great company, they just blew it on the new F4 in my opinion.

        Comments about Womens Polar FT4 HRM Monitors:

        I use this HRM everytime I work out,which is usually 5K runs. I really like knowing my heartrate while I'm running, and it gives me the calories I burned after I'm done. The only thing I would like better was if I could see how many calories I was burning during my workout without having to stop the session and start over on my HRM. I would and have recommend it to others.

        Comments about Womens Polar FT4 HRM Monitors:

        This is almost the perfect HR monitor- comfortable, easy to use, easy to set parameters for each workout, but you can't see the time of the run at the same time as your heart rate...otherwise I totally recommend it.

        Though it is a bit bulky, it is a great product that helps me see my heart rate and keeps me in my zones. It also shows calories burned to help with my weight loss goals. Just remember to wet the transmitor strap before workout! (As the instructions state to do)

            Comments about Womens Polar FT4 HRM Monitors:

            I use this HR monitor when walking, running and spinning. It is nice to use when walking because it shows your target zone and beeps when you are in or out of the zone, gets me motivated to speed up my walking. The directions helped with the set up. The chest strap is comfortable. Once it is set up, it is easy to use when starting your workout. I like that it gives your target zone, amount of time during workout and calories burned.

              Comments about Womens Polar FT4 HRM Monitors:

              I like the monitor because it tracks data for my runs and I don't have to retrieve it at the time. I can go back days and find workouts, even if I've worked out in the mean time. It easily takes my heart rate reading and spits out calories burned, which is very useful when you're watching calories. The only thing I have issues with is the transmitter on the heart rate strap. I am large chested and I have had a few problems with it rubbing me raw on the underside of my chest. Overall though, a very good product.

              • WalkingHiking

              Comments about Womens Polar FT4 HRM Monitors:

              After debating for several years to purchase a heart monitor (I have one on my treadmill) for outdoor activities including hiking, walking (hills), as well as indoor aerobic activities, I broke down and bought one after two of my watches went out. Although it is a bit bulky for a daily watch, the various displays- heart rate, time, and calories burned are large and easy to read when on the move. The graph is a bit smaller, shows your range, and is helpful on slower activities. After using the mnoitor for two weeks, I just about have the button sequence down.
              Programming was easy. One time after a workout I clicked the buttons too quickly- stop and back to time screen- but alas, on looking back through the data, my workout was saved. My calories and average heart rate information was there. I like the accuracy; it asks for age, height, and weight when programming.
              I have a small wrist, barely over 6 inches, and the watch is fully adjustable for a smaller and larger wrist. The chest strap is barely noticeable after awhile. My only fear is that if I wear it for daily wear as a watch, I will scratch the face. So far, I haven't.
              The only problem I have encountered was when I started it on a walk and my heart rate didn't register. This happened twice and I figured the problem out the second time. Before putting the strap on, you must wet the sensors under running water; I did. I had checked that the heart rate was reading when I put it on, however, I didn't exercise for at least 30-45 minutes and my body heat dried the sensors somewhat. By the time I had worked up a sweat the second time this happened, and it then started registering, I realized the problem and solutions.
              I would definitely recommend this heart monitor. At just over 50, I want to maintain good physical health well into my 90's; this is one more motivational as well as safety tool to help me reach my goals.
