...As of today, I just ordered a Model D for home (wife gave permission).
Yes, congratulations! It's very convenient to have one at home. Mine makes a big difference in my quality of life, if I'm faithful to it.

Re: Heart Rate Monitor

I bought the Polar Bluetooth one from C2. All I ask is that it reliably speaks to my PM. It does that. I'm satisfied.
