The Review
Overall I am very satisfied with this buy. Having a HRM allows me to train intelligently and for maxiumum effect.

I now enjoy my cycling and running much more!

If you do not need the Ownindex and also the dual user profile function, get the M32, its cheaper and has most of the features as of the M61 as well!

Strengths

- Worlds first soft belt transmitter, allows you to wear it closer to your body without inhibitng chest expansion during exhaling. Also prevents slippage.
- Replaceable batteries for watch and transmitter
- Has Ownindex or fitness test to gauge your fitness
