Polar FT4F Positive Reviews Summary

The Polar FT4F Heart Rate Monitor Watch is very accurate and stylish. It tracks your calories burned and your previous workouts so you can see if you’re getting healthier. The strap is very comfortable that you won’t even feel it once you get it on and start moving.

Some will say that this model doesn’t have it all, but if you’re looking for something to keep you informed of your progress in your exercise routine, this is really all you need.

This Polar Heart Rate Monitor Watch tracks up to 10 sessions worth of data, but also keeps a running total. The watch can tell you how long you worked out, your average heart rate, maximum reached, and time in the zone, and from that, how many calories you burned. It beeps softly at you every five seconds or so when you’re under the zone, and also tells you when you’ve exceeded your maximum.

The display of this Women’s Heart Rate Monitor Watch is really easy to read even in the middle of vigorous training session. The watch is comfortable and easy to clean, as is the chest strap, which is fully adjustable. The chest strap doesn’t bulge out underneath your clothing, which is great.

This watch has nice big numbers for easy reading even in the dim light of a morning spin class. You can go back and look at previous workouts and see where you stand. It stores up to about five days, and you can keep a log sheet on my computer as well. It’s nice that you don’t have to hurry and write it down before it goes away like you do on the machines in the gym.

Polar FT4F Negative Reviews Summary

The chest that comes with the Polar FT4F Heart Rate Monitor Watch is too loose so the transmitter only works intermittently and a call to Polar can fix the issue. Polar should consider mentioning that in the troubleshooting list.

Some complained that the transmitter doesn’t work. It seems it’s a crap shoot, some get one that works fine and others have nothing but headaches and with no customer support.

The Polar FT4F does provide a way for you to change the batteries but unfortunately, it also does not work after 40 to 45 minutes of exercise. This watch may ruin many of your work outs. Frankly the Polar Heart Rate Monitor Watch can turn out to be more a hassle than a help. It is designed to never shut off so you are constantly draining battery.
