This is my first monitor watch and it's great. Polar was recommended as a brand and item works consistently and shows target range , calories burned, etc. Easy to start and stop and review your stats.
If you are looking for other features that track pace for running or spinning, look for a different model. This also does not link to the polar training website, so you would have to manually enter your information.
This heart rate monitor works accurately about 60% of the time. I use it primarily for swimming and running. When I'm in the water swimming laps, it often takes about 3 minutes to find my heartbeat. Sometimes it will register my heart rate at 262 beats per minute when I'm swimming at a 30 second lap pace. Othertimes it won't be able to find my heart rate at all (despite wetting the strap, etc). This monitor will drive you crazy.

Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Not sure
My personal trainer recommended this model to me for our workouts. I have used it three times a week since I purchased it. It tracks calories burned as well as monitors my heart rate during exercise and the numbes are large enough to read easily. The monitor strap is easily washed when needed. Run the mesh part of the band under the tap to fully wet it before wearing the monitor so there is good contact from the band to the watch from the very start to get an accurate calories and heart rate reading. Don't wait to work up a sweat for it to work. Very comfortable to wear--even under a sports bra.

Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
Wearing this monitor during workouts has changed EVERYTHING! I love being able to see where I am at in terms of calorie burn right in the middle of the workout. I also the love the option to be notified whether or not I am in my cardio zone so I can amp things up when necessary. The set up was also REALLY EASY. Follow the directions and you are up and running! Its also a lot more attractive than most of the monitors that I have seen so that is a definite plus.
