I bought this a few weeks ago when I started a Cross Fit workout class. I like the information it gives me with calories burned and max and average heartrate durning my workout. I am not sure how accurate the calories burned are, but at least it gives me an idea of how hard I am working. So far I am pleased with the FT7

Polar has been on my wrist and in my workouts for more then 15 years. It has been so difficult to have the batteries or crystal changed...Sometimes my watch has not even come back! This time i opted to just buy the FT7, as I saw many positive reviews. After 2 months, I don't understand how this watch could get a positive review. It is hard to use because it is very very hard to read, with a smaller screen and odd number fonts that are very wide, black, and create an optical illusion of a black screen except at certain angles. On some screens the info is loaded with info but in microscopic letters and numbers. The manual it comes with is useless unless you like to read precautions. The info on the download-to-a-computer aspect is almost opaque on how to do it..barely a word on line, not a word in the manual, not a cd anywhere.I am sure it has to be somewhere, but it should not be so difficult to locate, as the computer aspect is very important to anyone who buys a HR trainer. Reading your time on the watch during a workout is not possible unless you stop completely and really concentrate on pushing the right buttons and can discern the tiny fat numbers, then go back to whatever you keep your watch on, like cal or HR. Not hardly a useful tool on a workout when you need to, say check your speed on a fast quarter. Looking up your "Data" on the watch requires a magnifying glass, and I cannot imagine how much time it would take to manually record the info. I'm not going to do it. I would like to give this watch away but feel sorry for whoever I give it to, because one would think it would work better, and that person will waste a lot of time trying to get it to be useful. Sorry Polar but I hope you go back to big screens, easy downloads and get your service departments more efficient. I will buy one more watch before giving up on Polar.

Delighted so far

By 

from Cleveland, OH, United States

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

Very happy it worked immediately without a lot of reading. Can read but prefer results. I am 65 and an avid fair weather cyclist. Wearing now and will be going to gym today to see if it works with a "Keiser" exercise bike. Going to try training smarter this year to see if I can generate greater speed.

Liked it a lot. At first

By 

from Buford, GA, United States

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

Like others I bought mine (FT4) about 3 years ago and it worked great but then last year the battery died on the watch. No problem, got a new one. But then it couldn't read my heart rate so recently hubby changed out the batteries on the watch and sensor. First day all was well but after that in the middle of the workout it couldn't read it. This happened several days and I kept re-wetting the strap. After use I always wet as instructed and wash once a week. I wish it had sensor on the watch, for a person my size (and female) not exactly comfortable. Now I have to find a watch with sensors on it or an arm strap.

Great Buy

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

At first I wasn't getting good reading till midway through my workout, then I realized I just needed to run the sensor under some warm water before attaching it. Needless to say my reading became accurate from start to finish. Couldn't be happier with this purchase

Not Worth the Trouble

By 

from Michigan

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

Feature-wise, it's exactly what I need and expected. But it's a worthless product as many times it will not pick up your heart rate, even when using a quality gel (or good old saliva). It's extremely frustrating. My sensor finally quit working after 2 years, and I was disappointed to find a replacement very pricey. I switched to using my wife's identical sensor, and it has the same problems mine had. Once you're pouring in sweat mid-workout, the sensor seems to work fine. But using in a light workout or during warmup periods, it's terribly frustrating to not get a good, consistent heart rate reading. I'm soured on Polar after this purchase and will be looking elsewhere for my next monitor. I wanted to give 2 stars, but after reflecting on it, and since I cannot recommend this product, it's a 1-star rating.

Great!

By

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

I've been using this heart rate monitor for 3 years and it's always been great. It's important that you wet the black strap before you put it on your chest or pour some water down your chest so the impulses can be detected easier. Will buy again!

Might work better for me if I tape it to my ear.

By 

from Salt Lake City, UT, United States

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

What I loved about my old Polar F4: an audible beep sounded if my heart rate was under or over my target zone. I knew to increase or lower the intensity without looking at my watch. I used it for years! Then the chest strap battery went kaput and in that old style, the battery could not be replaced... So... I bought a newer set--FT4 chest strap and watch--advertised as having an audible target HR zone alert. The chest strap is comfortable (I like it even better than my old one!) and works great, but the supposed beep or chime to indicate target heart rate zone is inaudible. Sometimes I can hear the weak little chirp if I raise it to my ear. I'm happy with everything else about the watch and HR monitor. It's just annoying to have to keep looking at my watch to see if my HR is in the zone. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't exercise with my wrist pressed against my ear. What good is an alert that can't be heard?

Disappointed

By 

from Massachusetts, United States

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

I have had polar F6 for years--While training, it displayed heart rate, as well as the time (minutes and seconds that has elapsed). I just bought the FT7, thinking I was getting an improvement, if not a comparable item--wrong. The FT7 will not display the heart rate and time simultaneously--to see the duration you have to click another button, which only gives you time duration, which is a drag if you are trying to exercise at a certain rate for a certain time--and who wants to be trying to press the buttons back and forth?

Great heart monitor

By 

from New York, NY, United States

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

I brought this heart monitor last year for my husband for Father's day and one for myself. We love this heart monitor we wear it for all our workouts. I feel its accurate with the amount of calories burn. I was taking swimming lesson and I wore it in the pool with no problems. The only issue I have with the watch I have is sometimes it presses up again my hand and activate the buttons. Other than that I have no other issues.

Works great, when it works...

By 

from Dayton, MN, United States

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

I've had this watch for almost 2 years so I have enough experience with it to give a good evaluation of it. I have the Flowlink, and enjoy the features it gives me. When I first bought this watch, I was disappointed that the only "statistic" it gives you is average and max heart rate. I was expecting being able to track heart rate over time. But I blame myself for that, not enough research (although the lack of this feature is pretty well hidden on the website). But I soon learned that I really didn't need this feature. For about 9 months, I wore it running, and it was great. It helped me stay motivated to work out. Then the transmitter became intermittent. I replaced both the watch and transmitter batteries, which fixed things for about 2 weeks. Then everything stopped synching. I contacted Polar for warranty. They replaced my transmitter, which fixed things. About 3 months later, the watch and transmitter started losing synch in the middle of a workout AGAIN. Replaced the band this time, on my own dime. This improved things slightly, probably due to new snaps vs worn out ones, but again, it wasn't perfect. Now it's back to the point where it loses synch at least once per workout. I will be contacting Polar again, we'll try to replace the watch I guess.

Disappointed

By 

from Madison, WI, United States

Comments about Polar FT7 Mens Black Heart Rate And Fitness Monitor:

I used to have a FT 4 and I loved it. I got the FT 7 as a gift for my birthday and I HATE it! The heart rate monitor almost never works and constantly stops in the middle of work outs. I can never get an accurate reading on it. I highly highly highly suggest you look around before choosing a product. Especially when you are paying good money for it.
