Thanks for your feedback and sharing your insight on the possibility of over-tracking.

I've been a hardcore fitness gal for a while. I have been lax for the last 6 months. I'd like to improve my cardio fitness; hence, the reason for a basic sports watch to keep track of my HR. emoticon Thanks for the warning!

I use to wear my Polar religiously and it worked just fine for weight lifting and tracking. Easy to change batteries. Overtime the sensors on the strap wore out and you need to order a new strap - easy too. In the end, it put me into over tracking mode and I had to stop. I would nearly freak out if the watch wasn't working right, or lost heart rate, etc. Not because, I was having heart issues, but because it wasn't tracking. In the end, it did more to distract me in the long run than it did to help me. Finally I put it away and started to re-listen to my body on lifting.

Overall, it was great, and a great watch. I think it as a F60 or something. I just caution those who get so caught up with techno gadgets that they lose the reason behind it. Like I did, plus the time factor I lost with tracking and logging, blogging, and updating. Time that I just don't have today.

My two cents.

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone has any feedback on Polar Sports Watch with Heart Rate Sensor. I am searching for a replacement for my current watch. I don't run outside so I don't need a GPS. I just need a simple watch to track my cardio activities.

How good is the battery life on the watch and the heart rate sensor? Based on the web site, although you can change the batteries by yourself, they recommend you send them in at the service center during warranty period.
