I use it for every session. it's very comfortable. I very rarely lose the heart rate signal and the batteries are easy to replace. Continue reading...
This is a great watch & HRM to help motivate my running. It's easy to set up and even easier to see while I'm running. If only it would give me my max heart rate (rather than the average) it would be almost per Continue reading...
A great sturdy watch.
Not too bulky.

very nice looking watch to use daily.

Valubale training aid, worth every penny.

Does everything I could ask for as a HRM, I couldn't see the need for any higher spec so bought this and it still exceeds my needs! The 'S' shape/layout strap design makes it much easier (in my opinion) to glan Continue reading...

Can anyone give feedback on the Nike C8 Heart Rate Monitor Watch?

I have a C8.

I bought it from Argos about 2 years ago. I actually ordered a less expensive triax, the C5 I think, but they didn't have any in stock - so they gave me the C8 for the same price as the C5.

Loads of features. Here are some:

Flexible display options, allowing you to choose what you see on the display. i.e lap time, HR, average HR, split time etc.
Recalls: exercise time, time in HR zone (above and below HR zone) and average heart rate for the total session plus average heart rate and elapsed time per lap.

The stopwatch function is very good too. It has countdown and an alarm which sounds at pre-set intervals.

The watch is a bit bulky for me but then I have slim wrists.

I used it all the time when I was cycling but I never really use it much for running.

I have one and love it. Agree with JRM about the max heart rate function but apart from that it works really well and does everything I need. Had it for 3 years and used it regularly for first year or so. Still use it now and then to make sure everything is still ticking and on my hard training runs.
