Yep the T6 is for sale on eBay, I went for the Polar s625x in the end while I was waiting for a replacement unit and HRM strap from Suunto. Hence me selling this new unit on ebay - I'm going to stick with the Polar. Although I don't see a lot in it when comparing the two. The Suunto software is slightly better as is the true beat to beat HRM (Polar takes a reading every 5 secs). The Suunto also looks / feels better than the Polar. The fact Polar also had their foot pod available was a boon also - although Suunto pods are due out in the new week or so I believe.
On balance I would recommend either watch - now Suunto have fixed the problem with the HRM straps.
Regarding the price, I paid £340 in London, they are £375 on Heartratemonitor.com (where I bought my Polar from). But you'll probably be able to get them cheaper on ebay from other countries (I think the warranty is international so that shouldn't be a problem). I'm asking £270 (no reserve) and if that doesn;t sell over the next few weeks then it'll become a Christmas present fopr my Brother (also a runner / cyclist - hope he doesn;t see this thread ;-)
I second Jason's message - well done to all taking part. A great race. I'll certainly be back next year. Feeling pleased as punch with a new PB but my legs are asking if it was really worth it??? Of course it was legs!!! Well done everyone!!! also thanks to the spectators at the end for encouraging everyone on for the sprint finish. The lollypop on finishing was also very welcome.
