Polar Ft1 Heart Rate Monitor (40 4343) 306

Review for ft1 heart rate

Price was $37.95 - $312.00. I've only had it for a few weeks and just use it when i'm on my treadmill. It came with a condensed version of instructions, i think they called it a quick start guide or something. They were somewhat helpful but it took me awhile each time i wanted to use it to get it into the exercise mode because it was pretty much trial and error. Even though this monitor doesn't have all the fancy bells and whistles i still needed to go on line and get the regular instructions to finally know what the hell i was doing. I only use the exercise mode but so far it's doing what i purchased it to do.

Foreword

This hrm is very easy to use. I wasn't looking for alot of "bells and whistles", just wanted to keep track of my bpm while working out. The chest strap is comfortable. The watch seems a little large. I have to wear it loose while holding onto the eliptical or it bugs me. I would purchase again.

Polar Ft1 Heart Rate Monitor Review (40 4343)

If you want a gadget that will persuade you to get off your butt and exercise because you want to play with lots of bells and whistles, this isn't it. (hint: no gadget will get you off your butt. Only you can do that. ). . However if you want an accurate heart rate reading so you don't give yourself a heart attack instead of cardiovascular fitness, this is your boy. Inexpensive, simple, light, convenient - it just works to beep when you go out of your pre-set heart rate zone to warn you to slow down so you don't stop permanently. :o). . With wonderful corporate unconscious humor, when you order it the distributor will send you an e-mail advising you that there is a later "new and improved" model available (for more more money of course). Chuckle indulgently when you see it, press the 'fu' button, and buy this anyway. -X. Joanna

ft1 heart ratePolar Ft1 Heart Rate Monitor (Switch to Mobile/Desktop Version)

Straight to the point. Simple to operate. Reliable. I bought this heart rate monitor to my old father, who need to pay attention at his rate during the daily exercise routine. This monitor fit exactly the need of a simple and reliable way to verify his real time heart rate, and it comes with an alarm that can be set to a minimum and maximum beats per minute thresholds (exactly what i was looking for). I selected this model due to it's simple operation, to encourage my father to use it (if i got another model with lots of buttons and lots of menus, features. Distractions. For sure he would leave this home while exercising). The only negative point of this model is that when the battery is down, you need to take it to an certified tech center to have a replacement (other models comes with a design that allows the customer replace the batteries of the monitor and sensor).

It's also built to last, with a design that holds up to 2, 500 hours of training usage. The transmitter belt-which works with all current polar wrist-top computers except the cs600 and rs800-includes a sealed transmitter and elastic strap. About polar the first ekg accurate wireless heart rate monitor was invented by polar back in 1977 as a training tool for the finnish national cross country ski team. The concept of "intensity training" by heart rate swept the athletic world in the eighties. By the 1990s, individuals were looking to heart rate monitors not only for performance training needs, but also for achieving everyday fitness goals. Today, the same concept of heart rate training is being used by world-class athletes as well as everyday people trying to lose weight. Polar is the leading brand among consumers, coaches, and personal trainers worldwide and the company is committed to not only producing the best products, but also being the leading educator on the benefits of heart rate based exercise.

Check that the moist electrode areas are firmly against your skin and that the polar logo is in the upright position. Tip: when you are finished with your workout, remove the transmitter, rinse with water and dry with a soft towel.  never store the transmitter wet, in a damp environment or in any kind of non-breathable material, such as a plastic bag or sports bag. Sweat and moisture may keep the electrodes wet and the heart rate sensor activated. This will shorten the battery life. Keep in a cool and dry place.

The F.A.Q. for polar ft1 heart rate monitor

Exercising at the correct heart rate for your age is crucial to developing excellent fitness levels. This device accurately measures heart rate to allow you to monitor your heart rate during exercise. It is easy to set and use. Besides heart rate it also has a stop watch function. You can switch between the two by just holding the watch close to the chest strap. The chest strap is adjustable and comfortable to wear. As a retired university professor with a degree in exercise physiology, i highly recommend this heart rate monitor.

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: Does it measure calorie burn?


(1) Question: Does this product include chest heart sensor?

I needed a heart rate monitor for a cycling class i am taking and i didn't think my garmin hr chest strap would sync with the little computer on the bikes. After using this one a few times in class and at the gym, i have been pleasantly surprised that once the chest strap starts sending the signal, it has been picked up by the bikes at my class, and the bikes and treadmills at my gym. The watch is a little funky with just the one button to operate all the functions, but i'm starting to get used to it. The chest strap is not quite as comfortable as my garmin, but it's not too bad.

Best polar ft1 heart rate monitor (40 4343) in review

I'm on my third or fourth one of these over the last 15 years. It does exactly what it says it does, which is to measure heart rate, duration time of exercise and time. That's all it claims to do and it does those tasks very well. . My only gripe is that you can't change the battery yourself. You must send it to a polar service center and polar absolutely does not make it easy to do. Maybe they sell more monitors that way, i don't know. It should not be so bloody difficult to change the battery! on the other hand, past batteries have each lasted 4-5 years, so it isn't a huge big deal unless you use it every day. If polar could make it easier to change the battery, i'd go five stars.

C. Clara, Leicester says

I am an exercise physiologist in a cardiac rehabilitation program at a local hospital. We recommend our patients get a heart rate monitor as one of the ways to monitor their exercise intensity via target heart rate range. We recommend they get this make and model because it is simple to use, affordable, and accurate (when compared to our telemetry system). . If you don't need a heart rate monitor that "counts your calories, " has track options (split times, etc), and gives you a back rub that costs $300+, then this is an excellent option.

S. Angela, Brandenburg

I knew i wanted a polar heart rate monitor but wasn't sure which model to buy. I was undecided on the ft 1 and the ft 7 models. I finally decided upon the ft 1 because the numbers are larger and since i now wear strong reading glasses this was most important. It doesn't matter how much information a monitor can give you if you can't see it. . The ft 1 is very comfortable to wear, both the wrist strap and chest strap. Readings are accurate ( i compared them with readings i took with my fingers on the wrist) and were exactly correct. The electronic beeps are not loud and you may not even hear them in a noisy enviornment. . The unit is waterproof and the chest strap must be washed after every use. The instructions are rather brief, however, it's not difficult to operate the functions. There is only one operation button.

G. Jacqueline, Mississippi says

This is a nice, and basic, hrm. Mine just arrived from online store the other day & have used it one time so far. I have had the ft1 2 times before. Be aware that if you like to do-it-yourself for replacement of the battery in the watch, you will need special tools(i'm not sure that its a torx head, but its very unusual) for the 4 screws on the back of the watch. The polar website does say you can send units back to them for battery replacement, but no mention on any fee for the work. Anyway, this is any easy to read display and easy to use. Live long and run.

K. Eleanor, Virginia

Comfortable, quick, simple and accurate. Easy to strap to my wrist or to the exercise machine handle. My exercise has become much more effective than ever before and i have proof-positive that i am doing what i am trying to do.

N. Sharon, East Sussex says

I have brief cardiac arrhythmia episodes once or twice every three months but can't feel it when my heart rate speeds up to 200 beats per minute, or higher, without some type of heart rate measurement device. By wearing my polar ft1 while i'm awake, even though i might not know it when my heart rate sky-rockets, my polar ft1 catches it and keeps track of it. It keeps a record of my average heart rate and maximum heart rate each day and allows me to enter that data into a file on my laptop computer which shows both the numerical data and a 2-d bar graph of that data to show my cardiologist at my check-ups. The polar ft1's data matches the same data gathered by the ekg machine in my doctor's office and in my hospital's fitness center, where i work out, so its accuracy is exceptional. The polar ft1 is easy to put on each day, easy to operate (i just put it on when i'm dressing, turn it on when i'm dressed, turn it off and take it off when i get ready for bed, gather that day's average heart rate and maximum heart rate, and key it into my laptop computer's file for that date), and it is comfortable to wear all day. With online store. Com's great price, which is lower than polar's price or the prices offered by some of the other on-line retailers who sell these great devices, i can afford to gather this much needed data economically, the built-in batteries in the polar ft1's transmitter unit and the wristwatch-like receiver/recording unit last for approximately one year of waking-hours-use the way i use them. The wristwatch functions of the receiver/recording unit are helpful and easy to use. Most people assume it is just my digital wristwatch and never know it is performing a very helpful and necessary function for me and my cardiac health. The polar ft1 also performs exceptionally well with my cardiac fitness program by allowing me to constantly monitor my heart rate while i'm exercising and warning me if my heart rate gets too high while i'm exercising (or if it gets too low while i'm resting or relaxing). It does a lot for me and my cardiac health for not a lot of money. Thanks polar and online store. Com!

I. Sandra, North Tyneside

Good heart rate monitor - it works with my old chest strap, so i didn't have to buy a new strap. The only criticism i have is that the interface using the "button" isn't terribly intuitive. It has taken quite a while to have the functioning become "automatic" for me. For quite a while, i'd struggle, trying different things for a few tries until i figured it out. It's still complex to reset the time, the upper/lower limits for heartrate, etc. I like that it beeps when my heartrate is out of my defined range.

F. Julie, Provence-Alpes-Cote dAzur says

I have used this monitor for about a week now and overall i am very happy with it. The displays are large and easy to read. I think the best feature is how you can rotate between each display by placing your wrist close to your chest. I feel that this is a very nice feature. I am not sure how accurate the heart rate is but hopefully it is pretty close. . I am very surprised at how cheap the watch and band look. Both watch and band look like flimsy plastic dollar store purchases! the watch is not particularly comfortable at all.

W. Eva, Delaware

I've had an ft1 heart rate monitor from polar before and i am very happy with this product. It's simple and doesn't have many snazzy functions, but if you train at fairly basic level (i. E. Not as a pro-athlete) this should be more than fine. If you want a calorie tracker or memory function for multiple workouts, this is not the product for you. If you just want to make sure you train at the correct intensity when you run/cycle etc. This is a great product. You can set your personal training zone and if you go over or under your set heart rate zone it will beep at you. That way you don't even have to look at the watch.

D. Candy, Nordrhein-Westfalen says

I use it to replace an old one that was also from polar. The last one was good. But its surface was sticking out like a dome and got scratched up easily. This one is flat, and is less likely to get scratched. . It can show the current heart rate or duration. But not at the same time. I need to bring it close to the heart rate transmitter to toggle it between heart rate screen and duration screen. This is ok. . It can show the info of the last workout. But it cannot keep info of older workouts. This is ok. My last one recorded the last x number of workouts. I thought that was a bit overkill. Most of the time, i only need to see the info about the last workout. That's why i got this cheaper model from their product line. Having said this, sometime i wish i can see the info about the last x number of workouts. Therefore, i am a bit regret of getting this model. Next time, i will pay the price and get their more expensive model that can keep the info of the last x number of workouts.

S. Gina, Florida

I enjoy this hrm but find the watch not responsive enough when very active. It may take 30 seconds or more to update no matter how moist the strap is. For intense workouts, that's simply not responsive enough. . Otherwise its a very clever device, as it has one button and uses 'pausing' to change the buttons action to 'increase' and 'decrease' as well as to advance to a confirmation screen or next setting. It took some getting used to. For geeks, it's very unique and extremely cool (even though the features themselves aren't all that robust. ) lastly, i learned if you want to be in heart-rate mode but see the time, simply put the watch briefly next to the monitor on the chest strap, and it will change modes between heart rate, current time, and session time. . To change the battery (which i've explored out of curiosity), use a torx mini t5 bit, generically called a star bit ( to take to back plate off. Inside, the battery is a cr2025, and has a small thin metal band clipping it in place. The clip will take gentle side-pressure with a finger nail along with some finesse. Be careful not to loose the small spring that extends to touch the back plate, as it is exposed and vulnerable right after taking the back plate off. Replacing the battery might void a warranty, so be patient and cautious.

P. Pearson, Alberta says

As a recent heart attack survivor, i am in "official" cardia rehab 3 days a week, and closely monitored by a nurse and personal therapist - they watch ekg, heart rate, bp, etc. But i need to be able to accurately monitor my heart rate when i am doing cardio on my own and i need to be sure i stay within their prescribed heart rate parameters. High enough heart rate to be doing the job, but not close to a dangerous level. And as i move to doing all the cardio on my own, i need accuracy. The polar ft 1 is perfect. It is as accurate as all the monitors in the hospital and cardiac center. The watch fits well, the chest strap is easy to fit on. And the modes on the watch are easy to work with. And a great price.

V. Guest, Gloucestershire

I like cheap. I used an earlier, even cheaper, version of a polar monitor which had only the heart rate function - necessary for me after having a heart attack, but still wanting to cycle. It worked, but i often felt the need for a time function. This particular model does heart rate and time, very convenient. Beware of the heart monitors which require you to press a (usually tiny) button in order to see the heart rate. These are inconvenient, to say the least. This monitor shows the heart rate continuously. You can change to time display by pushing a button. Back to heart rate by pushing the button again. It also has a barely audible alarm which indicates when you move out of a previously selected range of heart rates, say 90-110. I have not found this useful and turned the alarm off. As usual with these monitors, you really can't replace the battery, so use it until it dies, then buy another. The battery in the chest strap usually lasts longer than the battery in the watch part, but both are sold together, as far as i can see.
