Heart Rate Monitor

I'm in the market for a Heart Rate Monitor. Does anyone have any recommendations?
It needs to be waterproof, inexpensive, but not so inexpensive that it doesn't work accurately....and thats about it. I got a recommendation for the Polar f6.....has anyone used this one?
Thanks! (I promise a more interesting blog later!)

I dont know anything about the Polar F6, but I vote for the Green Tea color!

I use a Garmin 205 watch for running, and the 305 has a HRM. It's a very popular HRM/mileage watch for runners. I believe the 305 costs about $200. Don't know if that's in your budget, but the 205 has changed my life. I cannot run without it now!

Good luck:)

I have the Polar F6 in Pink Coral - I love it. It's the only one I've ever had, but it's the one my personal trainer had recommended to me, and also the one they pointed me to at Dick's, so I figured it was the one to go with. The nice thing about it is that the watch only picks up the information from your specific heart rate strap - and a lot of the other watches could pick up information from other people's straps if they're working out near you. Good luck making your decision!!
