The N5 Max Training Monitor has just won the 2008 Great Gear of the Year Award from shapeyou.com! This monitor is perfect for runners in training for specific events; 5K's, marathons, etc.
The monitor is fitness and health focused with an exercise calorie count, heart monitor capabilities, and a target zone visual alert to keep you on track towards your goals.
And the heart monitor chest strap is included with the N5!
I have heard once you run with a monitor you will never go back to running without; I'm sure with these easy to use features, it will be hard to run with anything else!
