Good basic tracker

By Minty

from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Comments about Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor Silver/Black:

I've had this for almost 2 years and it's served me well. The basic Heart rate monitoring and calorie tracking work great, and the strap fits well. I did find it comes undone occasionally while running if I haven't been careful while putting it on, and it may need to put on one way up for best grip. I'm finding that it is developing a sharp spot on the plastic connector just recently. My biggest dissappointment is in the WebSync - FT4 doesn't come with an uploading connector. Also, the free App you can get doesn't work on any of my Android devices. So I am stuck with the watch only, and no further info from uploading the data to my computer.

Basic Accuracy

By daisyjay

from Alabama

Comments about Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor Silver/Black:

This "watch" is designed to give you an accurate calorie burn count based on your info and your actual heart rate. It does just that. I have used the FT4 for 2+ years. I've changed the battery one time because I bought it on clearance at a local store. It clearly shows me my HR or if you want to see how many calories are burned, it will display that. Just scroll the buttons to see time, HR, calories, etc. Yes, it is BASIC, but that's what I wanted when I started getting fit. I'm probably going "trade up" to a more advanced model. But then again... Maybe not because I am so used to using this and hate to workout or run without it! Bottom line: it does what is says it will do.

Comments about Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor Silver/Black:

I found this monitor to be confusing to use. I had a basic polar but it didn't count calories so I replaced it with this. The calorie count does not seem to be accurate with any other program I have used. Also, there is no stop watch. I will be returning this. Also I found it impossible to read in spinning class.

Not so great

By Tommy

from England, United Kingdom

Comments about Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor Silver/Black:

Bought this a while ago and while a good heartrate monitor, it lacks some fundamental features that really matter to sport training. The biggest missing feature is a stop watch. Who makes a sports watch that dosent have a stop watch? I assumed a stop watch function would be present on the watch, even if not listed as a feature, as all digital watches come with a stop watch these days. I was disappointed with this purchase.

      Before starting, make sure that the chest strap fits tightly without being uncomfortable. You should wet the electrode areas of the strap well under running water and make sure that they are firmly against your skin. Then, simply wear the transmitter and the training computer (watch). Press OK and then wait until your heart rate is displayed, then press OK again to start recording.
