I bought a heart rate monitor on Ebay for € 15 (November 07)
From the beginning I was happy (price / quality).
The set I received:
-Heart Rate Monitor (with battery)
-Chest strap transmitter (with battery)
-Rubber band, which allows the steering wheel mounted heart rate monitor
All in a circular tube.
Heart Rate Monitor has basic functions, such as:
-Constant pulse measurement
-Determination of boundaries MAX / MIN
-Information about calories burned
and other type of clock, alarm clock
For half a year of intensive use have not found significant defects in heart rate monitor. Although many times it dropped from a height of about 1.5 m, it works like new. It is solidly made, not lost ‘coverage’, informs the sound of the exceeded limit of the pulse. We know the calories burned, with the option of entering their data, weight, height, age, etc. It is useful also an option to zoom, which enlarges the entire screen almost at the desired information. Strap the transmitter is not hurting, it can be perfectly adjusted.
Rating: 8 / 10
I recommend to all who want to have as nice heart rate monitor at a low price.
+ Pros +

quite a lot of features (that actually work)
