I have the Polar S625X and I could not be more pleased with it. It is a heart monitor and distance tracker which uses a fot pod. All the specs and info can be found at Polar’s website. I trained for my first marathon using it and it helped me run at my recommended pace. I also used it during the marathon and it was a huge help. I highly recommend it if you are looking for both heart rate monitoring and distance tracking.

Another thing I like about the Polar over the Forerunner (which I also have) is that you can use it while you run on the treadmill. I like keeping a log of all my runs and the software that comes with the Polar is pretty good too. If you don’t really care about logging it with the software the RS200sd will do most of the things the S625X can do minus uploading to your computer. But from what I hear you can upload the data to the polar website. Hope this helps.

There are two pages of discussion in this particular forum, most of it discussion about which HRM to get.

Here’s an interesting observation for those of you in the market for one that has upload capability: the software that comes with the HRM is not the same, actually not even close.

The software that comes with the Polar 625X is about a hundred times better than any other software that comes with the Garmin or Suunto HRM’s.

While many of you in the market may not be considering upload capability as an important feature, I’d like to respectfully suggest you consider this: training causes incremental improvements over time, so if you want to see in any meaningful way what your training is doing, graphs that show results in graphic form over weeks, months and even years is where it’s at.
