Hello! I'm a newbie, and I'm looking into getting a HR monitor. I find the chest monitor uncomfortable, but I'm open to using it.

Anyone use a Fitbit to monitor their HR? I have been reading reviews, and they are either really good or really bad.

I ride primarily indoors, and I'm looking for something that will tell time and help me with training in my HR zone.

Any information would be appreciated!

You should read the many threads on HRM training and response to exercise.

It isn't quite as easy a topic as finding a device that is comfortable. Even if you're riding indoors......even more so if you're not.

Thank you for your response, Vivienne! Right after I put up the posts, I saw that there were at least several threads relating to this topic. Looks like I have a lot of reading to do! :)

I use the Fitbit blaze to teach as I like to know my HR however, my class is not as concerned always with HR training. It always helps me keep time during class and the app is super easy to use. I will admit i have never tried to pair it with a monitor and am not even sure it can.
