Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good basic tracker I've had this for almost 2 years and it's served me well. The basic Heart rate monitoring and calorie tracking work great, and the strap fits well. I did find it comes undone occasionally while running if I haven't been careful while putting it on, and it may need to put on one way up for best grip. I'm finding that it is developing a sharp spot on the plastic connector just recently. My biggest dissappointment is in the WebSync - FT4 doesn't come with an uploading connector. Also, the free App you can get doesn't work on any of my Android devices. So I am stuck with the watch only, and no further info from uploading the data to my computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic Accuracy This "watch" is designed to give you an accurate calorie burn count based on your info and your actual heart rate. It does just that. I have used the FT4 for 2+ years. I've changed the battery one time because I bought it on clearance at a local store. It clearly shows me my HR or if you want to see how many calories are burned, it will display that. Just scroll the buttons to see time, HR, calories, etc. Yes, it is BASIC, but that's what I wanted when I started getting fit. I'm probably going "trade up" to a more advanced model. But then again... Maybe not because I am so used to using this and hate to workout or run without it! Bottom line: it does what is says it will do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Accurate but complaint about heart rate band I was given this item as a gift, less than a year ago. I use it quite often, however the band has left me several different scars, located where the heart rate monitor band lies across my chest. I love the product, but I've been forced to use it less often as it leaves me a new cut if used every day. Also, the band has fastener that allows for shortening and lengthening itself based on your size- if you're small it is difficult to wear as even the most fastened option is too big for myself and tends to slowly fall during exercise. I do like the product and the quality. I've avidly used it for my workouts since I received it, but the band is my only complaint. Is there perhaps another model you would recommend for me? Do you allow for trade ins if unhappy with a product?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to Love it but now having problems I bought my FT4 about 6 months ago. It worked great for about 3 months and then started giving false readings or no reading at all. thought it was the batteries so I changed them out. Worked great for about 2 months and then started to have the same problems. I use this daily, and the last 3 days I haven't been able to use :( ... I have now purchased new batteries again and am waiting for them to come in mail. If I change them this time and it continues I will probably throw this away and buy from another Brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to Love it but now not so much I bought this item a couple of years ago. For the first 2 years it worked like a charm, then it started malfunctioning. It wouldn't continually keep track of my heart rate. So I replaced the batteries in the watch and chest piece. Worked for a couple of days then started malfunctioning again. So I bought a new chest strap only worked for a day before it started malfunctioning again. Not really sure what to think now. Not very happy with this product now and irritated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for the money I purchased this watch 3.5 months ago and I love it. I am finishing up week 9 of P90X and it is holding up fine. I wash the band once a week in the washing machine. I like to keep track of my heart rate as well as the calories burned during my workout. I am excited because I just learned it can be used for swimming. I will start using it for that when our pool opens. I do agree with other reviews that a stretchy wrist band would be a nice improvement.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Older Models Were Better I received this as a gift a year ago. My preferred exercise is lap swimming and though the device clearly says that it is "suitable for swimming" it will not work. I tried using electrode creams and other things but it would not work at all. I had a lot of issues with the product and support sent me generic list of thing to try (use the transmitter upside down, use electrode cream, etc). My previous FT6 (purchased 4 years ago) worked great for all activities (without fuss or electrode cream) and the battery lasted a long time. I had to replace the battery on the FT6 after about 4 months. I lost the chest transmitter piece a couple of months ago. I'm going to buy the HT7 so I can use the transmitter with a phone or the FT4 and hopefully have better luck. Do not buy this item. Perhaps other Polar watches work better, this is a waste of money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Older models were better I am disappointed with the FT4. I purchased this 2.5 years ago, it was my second Polar. I love the simplicity of HR monitors and had great luck with my old Polar F4 for more than 4 years...unfortunately, when the old style chest strap ran out of battery, that was it, can't be replaced. I went with Polar again...the new chest strap design is bulky and doesn't work as well as the old one piece. Also, the past 1.5 years the FT4 has given me lots of trouble with transmission (I've tried everything) and batteries (both in the chest strap and watch) need more frequent replacement (less than a year). I wish it would work properly and I really do keep having hope. But I am about to give up, as I am taking on regular running again and need a reliable unit. I don't know if I will try Polar again...the 2 piece chest strap sucks. Bring back the old style, please!
