Editor’s Pick: Polar FT7 Heart Rate Monitor, $120

The FT7 consistently receives high marks for accuracy and ease of use. Available in full-size and slimmer versions, this affordable monitor (ranges from $80-130) reveals what zone you’re training in so you can adjust your pace as necessary. Users can set alarms to beep when their target heart rate changes. While the chest strap and watch are comfortable to wear and the monitor stores close to 100 training runs, the system doesn’t include a stop watch. http://polarusa.com
