Default Any recommendations for a budget Heart Rate Monitor?

"Johannas" wrote in message
Looking for something that would allow me to upload data from the watch up
to the PC and analyse progress etc. I'm a beginner so don't want all the
bells and whistles, so would be grateful if someone could enlighten me or
point me to the right direction.


I use a polar FS1 a metronome a stopwatch a course with measured mile on it
and an excel spread sheet. A monitor that you can upload data from is at
least 100 dollars. I walk at a fixed pace set by the metronome abd write
down my mile time and heart rate at the mile and the monitor calculates
average heart rate for the whole exercise session which in my case is
walking. I then calculate VO2 max.

Go for polar - they are the traditional specialists in HRM. Garmin are very good but more expensive.
