Strengths:    - the display is easy to read
- not to expensive

Weaknesses:    - not so preciced
- slow heart rate lecture frequence
- targets setting are not precised (scale of 5)
- bad for intervals training, it reads badly and pick's up your heart rates irrigularities

Bottom Line:   
It was my first heart monitor and I bought it because I didn't had alot of money for the big models. But the Pacer disapointed me and I'll have to buy a new one because the information it was giving me was not accurate (ex. it was giving me a lecture aprox. 10 reps higher than the one taken manualy or with an other device).

If you're training seriously, you should save a bit more your money and buy a better model from Polar, at the end it's going to be cheeper than buying an other one after a while just like I did.

The Pacer is made more for a week-end jogger type of user than a person that train seriously with his head.
