I'm curious about how many of you wear heart rate monitors at the gym. I just purchased a couple of inexpensive monitors (a basic Nike Triax C3 from Costco, and an Oregon Scientific SE102 from Amazon). So far I like them, and they work with the "Polar Heart Rate Ready" equipment at the gym, so that's a plus. I noticed that I'm usually at 90%+ of my calculated max heart rate while doing cardio, but I don't know how accurate that is since I don't feel too winded. Anyway, I usually take the strap off before doing weights, as it feels a bit cumbersome. Has anyone used heart rate monitors for an extended period of time, and what do you think of them?
