Is this heart rate monitor one that you can check your heart rate at any time, by pressing a button? Nother one i got did not offer could only be checked while exercising. I would like an easy way to check my heart rate anytime.

I believe most HR monitors are going to need to be 'turned on' or set to some activity to check your heart rate. If it were constantly receiving information from the chest belt even when not in use the battery would drain to quickly.

Does this include a "calories burned" readout?

Best Answer

The FT1 does not include a calories burned readout, but the other models such as the FT4 do. The FT1 is more of an introductory heart rate monitor. Hope this helps you find what you are looking for!

Does it fit on women?

Does it fit on women?

It should! This is a unisex watch, so unless you have really petite wrists, this should fit females.


Great basic watch

    I bought this watch for my swimming training. Polar is the only brand I know that provides you heart rate information under water, and that was exactly what I was looking for.

    The display is pretty simple but has big numbers, just what you need when you just need a quick look at your heart rate before you go for your next drill.

    Does this unit have user-replaceable batteries?

    I believe Polar requires all HRMs to be sent in for battery replacement to maintain waterproof integrity.


    Polar FT1 Heart Rate Monitor

      I bought this last month to monitor my heart rate while training for Tour of Utah. It is the most basic heart rate monitor available here, but that was all I wanted it for. It never missed a beat the whole time I was wearing it! For the basic means I was looking for, this is the perfect heart rate monitor, and I am already planning on using it cross training in the off-season too.

      I lost the monitor strap for the Ft1 watch....

      I lost the monitor strap for the Ft1 watch. Do you sell it separate?

      Adrian, I think you will have to contact Polar direct. I do not know of any sites that sell the parts for them.
