Polar Heart Rate Monitor - FT40

This is my new heart rate monitor.  I LOVE it.  My old one was not working very well.  Sometime my heart rate would be in the 200's and sometimes in the 80's while I was sprinting.  I just couldn't take it anymore.  It was more expensive here in Mexico but definitely worth the money.  The price in the states is around $159 - $175 depending on where you go.

This is the transmitter.  You wet the strap before putting it on and then clip the front part in. It sticks out a little so if you're wearing a tighter shirt people could see it sticking out.  But it's comfortable and accurate so I don't mind.

Here are some more features:

Graphical target zone indicator
Heart rate (displayed as % of maximum heart rate)
Heart rate (displayed as bpm)
HeartTouch™, button-free operation of wrist unit
Manual target zone (% / bpm) - upper limit
Sound volume level setting
Visual and audible alarm in target zones
Water resistant - 30m
