I had a cheap hrm (£20) and it broke in the rain, surprise surprise. Now I am planning on getting a new watch and HRM for between £50 and £70 ish. I have looked at the garmin 50 but am also tempted by the suunto T1 (partly because of the look. I use a Mac instaed of PC so ideally would like to find one that is compatible............any help much appreciated!!
If you dont need it to connect to a computer and just want to track your HR and lap times and such the nike watches with monitors are not bad. I got one off of ebay for about $75.00. It does what I need it to do. There are also alot of other options on ebay.
