THE FORD FOCUS OF HRM'S, NOTHING TOO FANCY, BUT IT IS RELIAB
Can change batteries yourself unlike other makes, and thus would seem cheaper to keep going.
Very easy to use, mainly I guess due to the relatively basic functionality.
Quite stylish, no odd colouring and so I am happy to use as a general use timekeeper as well.
Robust build quality.
Good value for money, I've tried more expensive ranges and I tend not use all the complicated functionality.
Warns you of limits to heart rate ranges with flashing indicator.
Light button is top left, which seems a little awkward to reach.
When used as watch seems to gain a time somewhat.
Okay as a sports watch but not designed for recording interval training.
Alarm could be louder.
I initially chose this to replace my more expensive Polar which had a lot of functionality I did not use. The Polar stopped working and the price of repair/ new battery seemed to rival the price of this new basic Nike.
Would suit somebody seeking a good basic heart rate monitor, which shows the time and incorporates a simple stop watch.
