Guide Review - Polar F6 Heart Rate Monitor - Discontinued

The Polar F6 heart rate monitor gives you all the info you want and the means to store it and analyze it. Calculates your maximum heart rate and your calorie expenditure. Then download it all to your computer with the included sonic link and software, and upload it to a personal web Polar Trainer web site. Because of all of these features, you have to spend some time to learn to use them. But when you do, you have a powerful tool for getting the most out of your workouts.
