These days I personally use and rely on a Suunto T6 heart rate monitor which not only gives splits with current and average heart rate, but also elevation gain/loss. I have had the same Suunto T6 since last spring, and it has lasted through 8 adventure races and over 1,000 hours of training. In the same time, I have had THREE Garmin watches fail: one ForeRunner and two "305" models. Additionally, I have had over 10 Polar heart rate monitors since 1992. Each has failed either due to water leaks, lens cracks, or just plain crapping out. Suunto is a sponsor, but if I were to make a buying purchase today with my own hard-earned cash it's easy to guess which I would buy. The Suunto also has compatibility with speed and cadence functionality for your bike, making it ideal for multisport usage.
