So as i stated before i’m going back and fourth between the bodybugg (version 3 soon to be out) and a Polar f11.
I would just go with bodybugg but something about paying that $14-$30 a month bothers me. I contacted Polar to find out their take on the Bodybugg… here’s my questions and what they had to say:
1. do you have any products like the apex bodybugg?
2. do you have any watches that don’t require a chest band?
2b. do the f series require a chest band? for heart monitor
Thank you for your email.
We are not familiar with theBodybugg product.
All Polar monitors require a chest transmitter for continuos heart rate
monitoring. The only product that is sold through Amazon.com that does not
require a chest strap is the A4. With the A4 you can press two fingers
against a button to get a quick pulse reading. However in order to record
calories or heart rate you will need a transmitter.
I find it interesting that they are “not familar with the bodybugg”. Either way it looks like i’m still on the hunt – off to the gym!
