    Is it any good? I've been needing one for a while, but I keep seeing ones that people say suck unless I want to spend $100. I don't need one THAT bad.

    I probably shouldn't have said "good" in my title since I can't speak for it.

    SAC has been having the Suunto ones for $50. Mine has been awesome. Much better than my polar.
    Stay away from the high gear.

    Yes the reebok above looks exactly like Polar which I've been happy with.

    Hmmm...I've been wanting to get a HRM and for $25.00 it's a cheap experiment. Thanks.

    I can't remember my woot login, that might be a sign.

    My going-away present from my last job. Love it.

    If you can get a HRM for 25 bucks, get one just to see if you like them.

    The chest strap looks huge. My polar is much slimmer and smaller.

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    I had one that didn't work, kept telling me I didn't have a heart rate. For $25, I try again.
