    As above, don't want to spend a fortune but want something reliable.

  2. I use a Polar FT7 strapped to the bars with a bit of pipe lagging. The watch itself is good, does all I need it to do...

    I use a basic Decathlon one. Seems ok, good value and works fine. Had it for a couple of years. If I was looking to change I would probably go for one integrated into a Garmin or similar

    I have a Polar FT1. It works well and doesn't seem to interfere with my Cateye Strada Wireless gadget. It cost about £30 and has all the very basic functions. I didn't buy it to become a cycling God, just to see what my CV system was up to. Seeing your own heart skipping beats in real time is quite fun.:smile:

    I would recommend polar as well, their after sales support is amazing.
    I've just replaced a case on a 8 year old RS200 for £12, shipped the next day.

    Go for one with a fabric strap as they are more comfy, heartratemonitors.co.uk has some good information and products, PS you don't need a cycling specific one but zones are usefull.

    The polar website app online is also good, the ability to upload is useful for training but perhaps overkill for general interest.
