Alright smarty-pants, I need your help.
Although we haven't signed up for the Ironman yet, the step of purchasing our bikes pretty much seals the deal. There's no way I am spending that much money on a bike without making it useful. Now for the next step.
I had applied this year to be part of Team Polar, but the team fell through and therefore I didn't get any really cool Polar gear. I currently train with a heart rate monitor from Timex. Don't tell Timex, but I think it's a piece of crap. I've had it for maybe two or three years and it has seen better days. The rubber on the outside is peeling off, combined with having to replace the battery several times, has made the watch unusable in the water.
Here's where I need your help. I'm in the market for a new heart rate monitor, but I'm looking for real gadgetry. In addition to heart rate monitoring, I also would be interested in GPS. I have a love/hate relationship with the GPS, but I'm starting to warm up to it. This heart rate monitor has to be useable for my swims. Also, because I'll be spending SOOO much time on my bike, I'm looking to have it integrate with a bike computer. Currently I own no bike computer either.
I should also mention I'm the owner of a Mac so it should probably be compatible with that too.
Any suggestions that would do all that stuff?
