Polar F4 watch and heart monitor


In our continuing quest to get you fit through technology and following on from yesterday’s Pedometer with panic alarm and FM radio, we now have the Polar F4 heart monitor – a digital watch featuring some very useful training tools.

It’s essentially a chunky digital watch, with all the features you would expect, including a stopwatch if you want to time your jog. But added to that is monitoring for the number of calories you have used, training targets, heart rate monitoring (average and maximum) plus the option to transfer the data to a PC. And it’s also water-resistant (but probably not recommended for a spell in the pool).

There are some premium wrist devices from the likes of Suunto for a hefty price, but if you want something a bit more basic for your training, Tesco’s £47.47 price tag seems fairly reasonable.
