Whether you are just starting out on a fitness regiment or are a seasoned athlete with a lot of experience, a heart rate monitor can help you get to the next level. The Polar M series of heart monitors has a variety of different styles with a number of functional features. The choice will depend on one's level of fitness as well as the specifics of the personal data-collecting needs.

When it comes to beginning exercisers, the Polar M32 is the best of the Polar M series. The M32, which recently replaced the popular M21 and M22 models, works with the Polar Wearlink Transmitter belt to analyze and give personal feedback about the athlete's current and average heart rates, personal workout intensity level, and number of calories burned. It contains Polar's exclusive OwnZone and OwnCal programs and an Exercise Reminder setting that can alert the "forgetful" to return to the gym three days after the end of the last workout.

The Polar M61--ich replaces the previous M51 and M52 models - is a step above the M32 and is great for moderate to advanced athletes who seek to push their physical performance levels even further. Like the M32, the M61 has both the OwnZone and OwnCal programs to help the wearer determine caloric burn and guide the levels of exercise intensity through a training session. However, the M61 also has the OwnIndex feature, which establishes an individual at-rest level of fitness within five minutes.

The M61 also has the "You and I" function, which creates two unique profiles for two individual workout files. With a push of a button, information regarding the last session can be displayed, including the date and time of the workout, amount of time spent within target zones, average heart rate, approximate fat consumed, and the number of calories burned. Both the M32 and M61 can also function as a fully operational watch, wrist calendar, stopwatch and personal alarm. Between the M32 and the M61, the Polar M series is one of the most advanced and practical of all industrial heart rate monitors.
