Strengths:    -Good deal for its price.
-Gets the job done.


Weaknesses:    -Poor quality
-Lack of reliability
-Lack of features


Bottom Line:   
My expierience with this heart rate monitor has resulted in more than a fair share of hassle and irratance. Though this product should perform adequately for any non-competetive cyclist looking too keep tabs on a little more than time and distance, for a competetive road racer such as myself it lacks the quality, features and reliablity needed to satisfy the needs of a structured training plan. The computer has intermitantly provided both a lack of and eratic heart rate readings even with a healthy dose of signal enhancing gel and will also give off false speed readings, 98mph for example, while stationary on a trainer. I have been pleasantly surprised by the fact that I have yet to deal with any structural issues with the product as the shell of the computer is composed of cheap plastic and gives off a rather rickety vibe. The product posses only the most basic features such as time, distane, average speed, max. speed, maximum heart rate, and average heart rate. I have, amzingly, managed to train quite well over the winter with this heart rate monitor despite its lack of features and quality but have since ordered a polar cs600 to better suit my needs. I would recomend this product, for it does work most of the time and is a serious bang for the buck with its low price point, but only to a recreational cyclist wanting to save a little money on a basic heart rate monitor.

Strengths:    Great value/ easy to set up and work. wireless.

Weaknesses:    No Cadence/ discontinued item not sure why though.

Bottom Line:   
Great item, The only weekness is the sender unit of the heart monitor; i have been using the one that came with a sigma watch(better quality Chest band) and i haven't had a problem. For the money you can't do better.

Strengths:    Cheapest HRM computer I could find. Easy to program wheel size, weight....

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Has everything I need - trip ODO, speed, heartrate, avg+max speed, Kcal burn. I've had no problems with the HRM at all - even my iPhone doesn't interfere with the wireless functions. I saw in one review that it doesn't have auto-off. Well it does. The trip timer stops when you stop, so the total time, avg speed... are accurate. When your trip is done it goes into clock mode - you still get a display; so auto-off DOES work.

Strengths:    Easy to read, control and setup.
Great bargain. Regular price is $89.


Weaknesses:    Don't drop it. It can crack the display.

Bottom Line:   
After reading the prior review, I decided to let everyone know that I've not had any trouble with the heart rate monitor on this computer. It is a solid performer for me. I did drop it about 6 months ago and cracked the LCD. I went into performance bike and they swap it out for me (no hassles). I recommend it.

Bike Setup:   It's wireless! The computer mount allows you to remove the computer to avoid theft. Just set the tire size and you are good to go.
