I love this monitor
Pros: Easy to set up and use. Smaller face than some of the other HR monitors. Accurate.
Cons: The only con is having to rinse the strap before wearing, which is really not a problem. I thought I would hate putting on the wet strap, but after a few seconds of wearing it you don't even know it's there.
Other Thoughts: I have owned 4 monitors. The first was a very long time ago. When I got serious again last year I bought a Mio strapless because I didn't like the strap on the first one. It ended up being a pain because you had to press 2 buttons to keep checking you're HR. Didn't seem all that accurate. 2nd one w/strap. Worked good for a 6 months then started not calculating right. Changed the batteries and it seemed okay for a while then I noticed that I was only burning 200 cals for a spin class, so I decided to invest more money and after doing searches & reviews, I found this one. I love it. It's easy to set up and use. It counts the workout time, cals, and HR....just what I wanted. I have done the same road trip with my bike several times now and the cals/time are the same within minutes/cals of each other every time. It seems to be the most accurate one I have had so far and I am very happy with it. Worth every penny, just wished I had gone this route first instead of being cheap!

Pros: Easy to use, comfortable, watch face not too big and bulky. As far as I can tell, it seems to be accurate. Works well with the equipment at my gym.
Cons: Wetting the strap is the only con I can think of, even though it's really not a problem. I really thought that it would bother me, wetting it before putting it on, but I only notice it wet on my skin for a few seconds and then it goes away and I forget about the strap all together.
Other Thoughts: This is my fourth monitor. One I owned a very long time ago and decided at that time I disliked the chest strap, so a couple of years ago when I got serious again, I decided to buy a Mio, strap free. Very nice, but I hated having to continually check the rate by pushing buttons together....big pain while working out....and not as acurate as i thought it could be. I went back to the strap type. It worked okay, but it always seemed like my calories burnt were too low. After a few months it started acting funny so I changed the batteries. Next thing I knew, I was only burning 200 cals in a spin class even though my rate was running at 168+. I did a search and came up with this one. From the start I have had no issues with it. It was easy to program and easy to use and as far as I can tell, pretty accurate. Just follow the instructions about rinsing before & after & washing and it works properly. Ive done the same bike ride a few times now and have burnt apprx. the same cals.
