    Polar. Hands down the best you can buy. They have a large variety of models based on your sport. Check out their website.

    I highly recommend the Garmin 305.  If that is too expensive, then I echo the previous poster.  Polar is the best.  My first polar HRM cost me $32.00, and while it doesn't have 5 zones, it does have the one zone I need, and I use it to this day.  It was worth every penny.

    Hi,

     

     

    I am using a polar rs200 since last april for running, biking and swimming (latter without the belt, of course), with complete satisfaction. I use it often as a regular wrist watch too. It also allows for the running speed monitoring upgrade with the footpod that can be bought separately. 

     

     

    Of course you will want a different model if your first discipline is running, or hiking, or fitness, etc. 

     

     

    btw timex watches are half the price but I never regretted spending more on the polar.

     

     

    good luck,

    I have been using a POLAR S625 X and I am satisfied with it. I bought an extra upgrade for the bike, and it works perfectly.

     

     

    Hope that helps.
