Heart Rate Monitor

Hey everyone, I've been out of the running scene for a while. Since St. George marathon I haven't run longer than 5 miles (gasp!) but it's been a good break. I'm focusing on strength training and some cross training... and I've been doing personal training lately, so things have been busy.

My reason for posting today is to ask if anyone can recommend a good lower-cost heart rate monitor. I would love to buy a Garmin 405 but it's not in the budget right now. Does anyone have any other brands that they've had good success with? I'd appreciate your suggestions.

Thanks and happy running!

I'm a HUGE fan of the Garmin 305 and you can get one around $150 these days.

I used a POLAR heart rate monitor before I switched to a Garmin. You can easily get a POLAR for well under a $100, but I switched to a Garmin because I wanted the GPS function.

I've heard great things about Polar - if you want it only for the heart rate monitor side of it, and don't want it to track distances at all. ;-) I <3 my Garmin 305 if you can find one. =)

I've never had a heart rate monitor, but I seem to remember Runner's World publishing an article on gadgets. I believe they had a write up about heart rate monitors as well.
(Not sure how much that comment helped! :) )

I use my Garmin 301 and my Polar all the time. Of course I use my polar for other things as well. biking and swimming. It's great for treadmill runs because most machines are set up for polar and you can wear your monitor and be picked up by the treadmill.
