I knew that I wanted something that was easy to use and with lots of readout options. As soon as I saw the screen on this Free Style 5.8e, I was interested. Some of the monitors on these workout machines are so small or so dull that they can be really hard to read sometimes. This one is nice and bright and blue.
I really liked that this model came with the heart rate chest strap, too. I love knowing what my pulse is doing wen I work out so I can tailor how hard I'm pushing things to my heart rate at the moment. Mix all of that with a $1299 price and a7 year parts warranty and we had a winner.
