Update Review

By Bebe19801

from NC

Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

I bought my polar a little over 3 months ago and I love it. I started my weight loss journey back in September 2013 but the second picture is when I started using the Polar for feedback. I love it. Instant gratification. It lets me know when I need to pick up the pace. Even when I need to take in down a notch. I have a long way to go, but polar is an investment in my healthier lifestyle.

Easy to use and access the features.

By Melinda59

Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

I bought this 2 months ago to monitor my heart rate and caloric burn during power vinyasa yoga practice. Wow, I knew I could burn a lot of calories in Jazzercise but I had no idea how much I had been burning in yoga practice. Next was to check out how many calories I burn while down hill skiing. Another, WOW! I love my Polar-FT4

Very useful product!

By msuacallahan

from Lake Charles, LA, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

I've had my heart rate monitor for about 3 months. The band is comfortable and the watch is a good size. It's super useful and I love all the features. The only thing I wish it did have, an iPhone app or something that hooks up directly to nutrition apps on the iPhone.

Great information

By COGnosticator

from Rincon, GA, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

I bought this a few weeks ago when I started a Cross Fit workout class. I like the information it gives me with calories burned and max and average heartrate durning my workout. I am not sure how accurate the calories burned are, but at least it gives me an idea of how hard I am working. So far I am pleased with the FT7

AWESOME!!!

By Bebe1980

from NC, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

I bought this because I needed feedback. I've been doing Weight Watchers for almost 6 months, and was looking for something to kick it up into high gear. I saw that some of my friends were using this, but I was paranoid that the chest strap wouldn't fit, so much that I almost got the men's one to make sure. It fits great, I actually had to make it tighter. It's a great tool to provide feedback, and make you work harder!!!

Love it!!

By puddygirl13

from Des Moines, IA, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

I bought the ft7 to help me track my calories burned during my workouts, everything from P90X and Insanity to a little Jillian Micheals action. I feel like it gives a very accurate reading and it's comfortable to wear! Highly recommended!

Good value for the money

By sheryl22

from Dallas, TX, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

I purchased this watch 3.5 months ago and I love it. I am finishing up week 9 of P90X and it is holding up fine. I wash the band once a week in the washing machine. I like to keep track of my heart rate as well as the calories burned during my workout. I am excited because I just learned it can be used for swimming. I will start using it for that when our pool opens. I do agree with other reviews that a stretchy wrist band would be a nice improvement.

Keeps you motivated!

By JayneCooper27

from Antioch, CA, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

I love this product! I use it for crossfit and despite the high impact activity, I never felt like the chest strap was gonna come undone; although, I wish the watch had an option for a stretchy band cuz I wear wrist wraps when lifting weights, and the watch is too small to wrap around at that point. Otherwise, this keeps me in check with exertion and effort, and I love seeing how much I burn during an hour of crossfit!

    Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

    This update to the FSC2 looks much better, not as utilitarian as the former style. Price is terrific at [$], and it gives you the basics - heart rate. I use heart rate to keep my runs in check, and ensure I recover adequately before the next hard effort.

    Cant work out without it!

    By Moonstone

    from Sri Lanka

    Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

    Bought my FT7 almost a year ago and honestly, I can't workout without it now! I feel like the calorie burn is very accurate and have had no issues with it! I still need to try it out in the water, but for someone that wants to lose weight and get fit this is a perfect buy. Its not so expensive like the rest but is more than enough. I have to admit I am tempted to buy the FT60 now due to the new training features but honestly the FT7 motivates you enough! if you haven't burned 500 calories in one work out, don't stop till you see those numbers!

      I use this while on the treadmill, riding my horse and walking outside. It is easy to use...no fancy bells and whistles, but would prefer not to have the chest strap to deal with even though it is comfortable.

      Easy to Read, easy to use, Basic

      By AKinOKLA

      from Oklahoma City, OK, United States

      Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

      I have an 8 year old Polar F1 that still works, but the transmitter belt has finally deteriorated (the plastic ends broke through). This FT1 is very similar, but the watch band looks suspect. I just received this, have used it two days and am concerned the "gel-rubber" band may not last. I will update over time. The one-button entries have a short learning curve and you won't regret the simplicity. After entering execute (start) you merely swipe your wrist past the chest sensor to toggle between heart rate, elapsed time and actual clock time. No buttons to push while working out! This is basic; no upload or tracking, but gives you right-now feedback of your workout intensity. The LARGE font is easy on these 60 YO eyes and preferable (to me) over the FT4/7 Polar's watch face and font size. The band is the only reason to not give it 5 stars.

      By kdub

      Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

      I love this! ACTUAL calorie count and heart rate monitor!! I tried a few others, only to find out they were only jazzed up pedometers, what a joke! If your a fitness junkie like me you'll appreciate heads up heart rate and calories burned at the push of a button! Very simple and easy to use! A friend of mine has one as well and we work out together, legitimate counts as far as we've tested. My workouts are generally around a 3500 cal burns and this thing doesn't miss a beat! I even wear it while sparring! It's taken a few hits (literally & figuratively) and has tested true! Don't waste your money on these over priced step counters, get the real deal and workout like you want it!

      Still Using After 5 years!

      By haliealane

      from Stillwater, OK, United States

      Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

      I am still in love with my Polar FT4 after 5 years! I've changed the batteries in the watch and the heart rate monitor strap about twice in this time period and it is still working great and looks like new! I use it during every workout, which is basically every day because I'm an athlete, and I definitely prefer it over my other daily activity monitor because it has the more accurate HR reading due to the chest strap! I also just love wearing the watch around because it is so cute and durable. Thank you Polar for such a great product!

      Should be mandatory in highschool gym classes

      By prothopectore

      from behind enemy lines, Penns Woods

      Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

      I'm just a country bumpkin. been bicycling / mountain bikin' since I was a wee lad. I never really understood heart rate limits. I used to push myself so hard without realizing I was doing damage....I didn't have a tachometer. I got bi-lateral DVT and CVI back in 2012. Doc. told me to never go above 180 on my heart rate. So I purchased this amazing Heart Rate Monitor from Polar. K.I.S.S. principle! keep it simple stupid! this heart rate monitor gives me everything I need to know about my heart rate and the range and time and Average and Maximum heart rates logged. This thing I built like a tank. It's April 2016 now and I've used this for a few hours a week since March 2013. I even sleep with it on 1 or 2 nights a week to log my sleeping heart rate. Also wear this while strength training, it works. In my opinion the best heart rate monitor available on the market. Thank you Polar for giving my doctor and myself the needed peace of mind to keep my dumb butt from blowin' my heart up or dislodging a clot while im out rehabbing myself. If anything ever happens to this heart rate monitor I will replace it with the exact same make n' model.

      nice but....needs some better stitching.

      By Celeste

      from Tulsa, OK, United States

      Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

      this is about the 5th one I brought!!! Love them...plain simple and thats all I need to check my heart rate. Once battery goes, you have to buy a whole new set. I use it everyday and in all kinds of fitness. However, this last one, the stitching from the edge that connects the break apart thing to get band off, came un stitched and now worthless. Am not a sewer but took it to a tailor shop to restitch and can use again. Told them to make heavier stitching. so , if the people who make these, need to make it re enforced stitching. I will still buy them.

      Good product for the price

      By Trish

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

      I really like my HR monitor because it allows me to meet zones. The only complaint I have is it sometime only detects every other beat. I gave up trying to figure out how it was placed incorrectly and decide just double the number. So if I'm in the range of 125 and then the monitor reads 62 I know I'm still in my zone. You do get cheated out of calories burned. My main goal is to maintain a HR for x amount of minutes which it's great for.

      Good value, entry level device

      By dlskidmore

      from Rochester, NY, United States

      Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

      It's a good value, does the few things it does well. A good choice for a first heart rate monitor while you're deciding how much money to invest. The official battery replacement method is going to cost you as much as a whole new unit, so consider it disposable after a year or two of use. There are videos on replacing the battery yourself, but it may ruin the waterproofing and will definitely void the warranty.

      By Chelli

      from New York, NY, United States

      Comments about Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor Monitors:

      I brought this heart monitor last year for my husband for Father's day and one for myself. We love this heart monitor we wear it for all our workouts. I feel its accurate with the amount of calories burn. I was taking swimming lesson and I wore it in the pool with no problems. The only issue I have with the watch I have is sometimes it presses up again my hand and activate the buttons. Other than that I have no other issues.
