    polar stuff is pretty accurate. It comes with a chest strap so that its all telemetric. More accurate than the grips on the machines for sure.

    Fuck underarmor... there's cheaper knock offs by Starter that are just as good. But hey! UA sponsers UFC, it must be the best.

    Also, Polar make a couple basic monitors, with chest straps, that work pretty well. I have the FS2 model, seems pretty accurate and it works with Lifefitness stationary bikes.

    Polar is legit. I used it for cycling, running, and even swimming. I don't remember which model I have but it's awesome.

    mine has the chest strap also. I really hate that strap when I run though.
