Heart Rate Monitor UK - tests - reviews - shop
This is where it all started for us, selling Heart Rate Monitors online since 1996 We started this website to give the customer an informed and objective choice when buying a heart rate monitor. We began selling ONE brand and 4 models from a company called ProActiv. By 2013 we were selling 9 brands and 64 models, from £29.99 to £599.99. Everything from the Polar FT1 to the Suunto Ambit 2. In November 2013, Louise and Tristan decided to shut up shop. After many years of great business we just could NOT compete with the warehouses like Amazon and Handtec. We are maintaining this site to give you impartial shopping choice when buying a heart rate monitor online. If you click through any of the shopping links we get a small commission which helps us keep the site up to date and answering the many emails we get daily. THANK YOU for visiting.
Listening to your body is one thing, understanding what it is telling you is an altogether different story. Polar helps you get under the skin of your training. Polar put it down to a combination of expertise in sports, physiology and electronics, coupled with a deep understanding of customer needs.
It’s no surprise then that they have been leading the way in technological innovations and heart rate monitors since 1977.

In our opinion, Polar have two 5 star products. The Polar FT4 and the Polar RC3 with integrated GPS. We've no doubt the new V800 will be brilliant, but, for 90% of fitness users, the FT4 (low to medium budget) and the RC3 cover all bases. The FT4 provides essential calories burnt, heart rate zone control and a short summary of the session. The RC3 can get you back home if lost and tell you just how hard each training session really was ....

Suunto used to have the best all round HRM on the market, the Suunto T3C, it was brilliant. For a reason that still eludes me, they replaced it with the M series and the Suunto Quest. For most exercisers looking for sensible HRM functionality, the Quest is a good option, but for integrated GPS, the Suunto Ambit2 is hard to beat. It's the only GPS heart rate monitor that we've used that allows the user to develop their own APPS online, and upload them to the watch ....
