We love the new Polar FT60 . As you can see the display is very in-vogue, angular looking and perhaps more importantly to the stats obsessed purist….the screen are is quite big. Lots of easy-to-read information.
It has some nice colours too! Even in black if purple is too much for you.
It’s not cheap but I reckon you might just be able to find one on Amazon for under £100 if you are lucky, if not then at least somewhere close to that.
If you are looking at weight loss then heart rate based training is the way to go for most people. The FT60 does that and also builds in some nice features like Training Load to tell you when to have a rest day or when to have a hard day.
If you like Polar and are looking for more of a running watch that has GPS/pace/speed information then have a look at the new Polar RCX3. Super-sweet. Possible review later this year – to follow.
