I know lots of threads are out there asking about heart rate monitors, but I can't find one that answers my specific question. I am a small female (5'1") with tiny wrists - most of these HRMs are huge! I don't want to be running with a big clunky thing on my arm! Does anyone have suggestions for a smaller size/women specific size HRM?
Also, I just want a basic HRM that can keep files of all of my training sessions, can link up to my computer with infrared - but doesn't have all kinds of other things on it like bike info (cadence, speed, etc). I don't need all of those functions! I just want a simple HRM that has software that can store all of my sessions.
A friend of mine has the Polar S725 and he's always having issues with it syncing, trying to find the settings that he wants (and we're engineers, so it shouldn't be too over our heads, right?). It seems the more that's on it and the more complicated it is, the more things can go wrong with it. Same with cyclocomputers too, at least in my experience. My $20 computer works 100% of the time, while my riding buddy's $100 computer never syncs and if it does, quits in the middle of the ride!
Thanks for any advice!
