    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor - Men'sis rated3.5out of5by8.
    Rated5out of5byfromJust what I neededExactly what I needed for my recovery from a quadruple coronary bypass. I can do all the things I want as long as I monitor myself. So far it is all that was promised. Also REI was the only store out of five that could answer the questions I had concerning Heart Monitors. Always happy with my visits to REI

    Rated4out of5byfromThis one last longer than 18 months?This FT4 replaces my old one bought 4/4/12 which became erratic after 16 months. The new one is the same model but the strap is different, not fabric at contact points and feels more comfortable. I wear it for my daily 25 mile bike ride to monitor my fitness and energy expended levels. Not sure of accuracy of "calories burned" but it works as a point of reference. I do not use the data history as I handwrite my time in zone, average heart rate, max heart rate and calories burned. The seconds are not displayed in the "time only" mode. The Timex HR monitor I had in the past seemed much less reliable.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat Basic Heart Rate MonitorOverall a great heart rate monitor. The description from Polar is spot on for the features this unit provides. The only reason that it did not get 5 stars is that the chest strap tends to chafe. A friend bought the FT7 new in 2009 and that model has a much nicer chest strap. The other feature that would be nice is to show the heart rate and elapsed time on the same screen. Otherwise I am very happy. It functions in and out of the water the same and has a fairly accurate reading.

    Rated2out of5byfromDisappearing Heart RateThe monitor would work intermittently. It would tell me frequently to check the transmitter. I changed the transmitter battery despite only having the Polar for about a month. No change. Would be in the middle of a workout only to have the HR disappear.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat HRM WatchI needed a HRM watch to monitor my workouts. This model was recommended to me so I got it. I am happy with it - it works great and helps me keep track of my calories burned per workout. I only use it for that purpose and time/date. It's simple and it works.

    Rated4out of5byfromEasy to Use, Missing a FeatureDoesn't display heart rate and elapsed time in same field making interval training, speedwork and Fartleks difficult to perform

    Rated4out of5byfromI would buy this product againThe unit worked as advertised. However I am having trouble downloading my workouts to my computer. I am going to call the help desk for assistance.

    Rated1out of5byfromDO NOT BUY!!!Manual inadequate. Does not describe how to alter settings. You must visit a Polar website and view multiple tutorials. Does not detect heart rate when used as manuals and tutorials instruct. This is a total piece of garbage and will be returned. Prior HRM was Polar F6. Worked fine for 10 years. Easy to set up and use. This one is USELESS.
