Perfect HRM & Watch for Male & Female Athletes
I have searched high and low for a female athlete friendly HRM and watch. I had a Polar FT60 for the past two years but was really unhappy with their website and the fact that a Flowlink component had to be used in order to download your data. I tried the Polar RCX5 but had to return it because the watch was much too big for petite wrists (I am 5'7/125 with a 5 1/2 wrist). I also didn't like the fact that Polar's foot pods are about 3-4x the size of Suunto's. The HRM chest transmitter for the Suunto Quest is the most comfortable I have ever worn - I forget I even have it on. I have never had a problem with an accurate HRM reading and the watch is fully adjustable so everything fits perfectly. Suunto has a Movestick mini as well so no annoyingly larger dongles to transfer your data. The Movescount website is excellent - my data downloads in less than 15 seconds. Suunto is the way to go if you are a serious athlete! I also tried the T6D but it is dated (2010), requires hardwire data transfer, and is way too large for smaller female wrists. I also tried the M5 but that is geared more toward entry level weight loss goals with structured programs - not for serious athletes. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!
