    Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor - Women'sis rated3.5385out of5by13.
    Rated5out of5byfromLOVE this product!I use this everyday and will never do another workout without it. I have been working to lose weight for a year now. I count all my calories that I eat as well as burn. Now I feel like I can take my weight loss to a whole other level now that I know accurately what I am burning when I work out. Highly recommend this to everyone!

    Rated5out of5byfromNice MonitorI use the FT4 to track my workouts. I do a combination of Running, Elliptical, Bike, Circuit (alternating machines and steppers) and weights. The strap is comfortable, I can read the display without my glasses, and it was easy to set-up. I'm coming back from a knee injury, so I had to lower the frequency and intensity of my work outs for several months. The FT-4 is helping me to safely get back up to my previous level of exercise. I got the bright green one. Very happy with this purchase. It does just what I need it to do, and the price was reasonable.

    Rated5out of5byfromeasy to use, comfortable to wearMonitor heart rate while working out or doing strenuous hiking. I'd never used one before, and was relieved to find that the body band is comfortable even when I'm active and sweating, and the numbers are large and easy to read at a quick glance.

    Rated1out of5byfromGreat at FirstI am on my 2nd FT4, thanks to REI replacing the first one. Not even six months after using the first one, it started having trouble reading my heart rate. It showed 00 on the display a lot, and when I did finally get it to take a reading, it would show a heart rate in the low 200's with me standing still, pre-exercise. I contacted REI and they happily exchanged that one for a new one. Now, 8 months later, this one is doing the exact same thing. I have followed the instructions on how to care for the device. I had the batteries replaced in the watch and chest piece about a month or two ago because I was getting the low battery sign on the watch. And now, it's doing the same thing as the other one: no heart rate found at all, or it's displaying one in the low 200's again. I am really disappointed. When this watch worked, I felt it was accurate and reliable, but these two I've had haven't lasted more than a year. I will look at buying another brand next time.

    Rated4out of5byfromworks wellIuse it with training videos, nice to have an accurate heart rate while working out and then a caloric burn at the end. I do find the instructions written in quite a small font and not easily read.

    Rated1out of5byfromlow quality monitorUpdate from my previous review, I have it for more than a year now. I had to ship it back to Polar to replace the strap part and I did not use it every week. I can not believe I have replace so quickly plus it was not under warranty. I have some other brands of heart rate monitors and they do have these kind of issues. I am very disappointed with Polar product and I will not buy another Polar product again.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat HRMI've used my Polar FT4 to measure my heart rate and calories burned while I work out. I have no idea how accurate it is, but I can say that workouts that feel harder reflect a higher average heart rate and calories burned than workouts that feel easier. This is true even on my regular running routes. I love being able to monitor my heart rate while I'm working out, and I love seeing how many calories I've burned when I'm done, it's helped me maintain my weight after losing 27 pounds. My only problem was the first one I bought would lose my heart rate during workouts. It happened once in a while within a couple months, but became a more frequent problem later. I brought the first one back to REI and got a replacement, I've had the new one for about a month and a half, and it's never lost my heart rate. I'm really happy with my purchase!

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat tool when it works properlyI purchased this product as a tool to encourage me at the gym. It is surprising to compare calories burned on the treadmill, etc. vs. the Polar FT4! It makes me want to work harder to make my workouts more efficient (burn more calories in the least amount of time). I have found sometimes even though I have carefully followed the instructions regarding the heart monitor strap I get no readout on the watch. Frustrating! Other than that, it is a great way to measure how effective your workouts are.
