Garmin FR60 - Anyone use one?

I'm looking at the Garmin FR60 with the heart rate monitor and the foot pod.  Anyone use one?  Like it?  Dislike it?  Would appreciate any feedback you might have.

    Re: Garmin FR60 - Anyone use one?

    I've been using the FR60 for about 6 months and I am very happy with it. I use it for all track work and for races...places where real-time pace is important to me. I previously used various Polar devises, but got tired of waiting for Mac compatible software. I have found that the Garmin foot-pod is easier to calibrate and it is about 1/2 the size of the Polar equivalent. I think that the Polar units have better heart rate accuracy, but the Garmin is close enough, the pace is more important to me. I run about 30 miles per week including 2 track days, and FR60 works for me.
