I have only used this for 5 training sessions up to now and although it does integrate with the gym equipment it does say in the product details "No chest belt required". this is not the case, had I known this I would have looked for an alternative product, some are available cheaper with the same limited functions.
It is also slow to react to function button presses, am I expecting too much or is the battery low? I have nothing to compare it with.
Don't set your expectation too high.

Polar FT1 Fitness Watch.
good value, will take a bit of getting used to, but it does give you a number to associate with your level of exercise, so you can see where you have scope for some extra effort. Only thing it does not have is a daily alarm but to be fair I guess I could use my phone for that. The cheaper watches seem to suffer from poor reviews regarding accuracy but this entry level polar is accurate most of the time. There are a few online guides on youtube and heart rate training guides.

Product shows exactly what I want
After doing cardiac rehab although they didn't recommend anything this is the product I was using there. So to enable me to continue monitoring my heart rate when exercising I found this product a great help.

Worked straight out the packet. Very simple to use. Download instruction manual and follow simple setup steps. Very good at keeping constant check on heart rate whilst exercising with audio warning when HR goes outside aerobic zone.

Does the job. Button a bit fiddly and paging through the menu time consuming.
