All I wanted was a heart rate monitor so I could keep myself in my pre designated HR zones while biking (I have a tendancy to go a bit too hard too fast). Anyways It's great, it took me only about 5 minutes to go through the setup, the menus were insanely easy to undersatnd/navigate. The chest strap and watch band are much more comfortable than I thought they would have been. Although I do have two downsides to this product, first there is only an alarm when you go above your specified HR not if you drop below or out of your zone, second the strap is a bit tight on me although I do have a 48 inch chest (but it doesn't bother me enough to return it). Other than that I absolutely love it, the looks, the feel, and the performance!
