      State Governments should be checking Ozbargain, so that they can be snapping up all these as a cost cutting measure.

    I dont see how you can get your money back within 60days of purchase if you dont like it.. unless you dont wear it at all. Isnt it a bit unhygeinic to return if you've been working out with it on?

      They don't resell items that you return straight away, they do something with them, no idea what.

        Ok, so if i decide i dont like it at all within 60days and i've worn it and worked up quite a sweat.. i can still return it?

        Aldi states:
        "relax - everything's covered by our 60 day refund policy
        At ALDI it's ok to change your mind.

        We'll refund or replace any item as long as you return it within 60 days of purchase – with a receipt, in its original packaging, with all the accessories.

        ALDI's refund policy and manufacturer's warranty are in addition to your statutory rights under the Trade Practices Act and similar laws"

        So does that mean packaging cannot be opened.. or do they just need tha packaging for the barcode? I'm a little confused.

          Just need the packaging.

          It does not say the product needs to be new.

          Best to ask the store before you buy one.

            Cool. So has anyone had any experience with these heart rate monitors? Are they as accurate as Polar? Can they link with gym equipment? Does it connect up to the computer?
            I almost bought the Suunto Heart rate monitor off 1-day.com.au the other day for $130.. but 1-day never replied to my questions i asked them, so i didnt buy it.

              If it could then the specifications would say so.
              Linking to gym equipment would require one which is the same brand as the gym machine

              Use their live chat as it gets an instant reply.
              They are probably too busy to answer emails.

                The Aldi site doesnt list any specifications.. not from what i can see anyway. It would save the drive out.

                I thought most heart rate monitors were able to link up to gym equipment as long as you're wearing a trasmitter belt? i could be totally wrong here.

                Their live chat was offline at like 2pm in the afternoon, so i asked a question in their Q & A part of the product. I had no reply, so i spoke to someone on live chat today. She had no idea why i wasnt answered to :-/

                  What i mean is that it would be a selling point so if it had the features they would want you to know about them.

                  Like you i have no idea but i would think that the manufacturers of equipment would want you to buy their own brand of monitoring equipment.

                  I do not think there would be a standard for wireless heart rate monitors and gym equipment between different manufacturers.

                    Ohhh i see. Well im hoping it'll be a pleasant surprise. If anyone has bought one today, please post some details.

                    Personally, i wouldve thought that the transmitter belt would be able to communicate with the gym equipment, just like it does with the watch.

                      if it doesn't, just return it for a full refund…

                      it's not a feature i need… i just want a simple one that works…

    This previous Aldi model (reviewed below) required to you place your fingers onto the watch to have it record your HR. Yikes!

    I'm not sure what model this one is, but the choice magazine website states…

    "CHOICE members often ask for ALDI products to be tested. We tested the ALDI Crane Sports F38 heart rate monitor and it came equal best. However, ALDI have stated this was a special only and will not be available in the future."

    Does anyone know if the Polar FT60 is any good? 1-day currently have them for $199.99. It looks like a mens watch, but i was wondering if anyone knew whether it would fit a small ladies wrist?

    •  

      I would think it will fit just fine.

      Face dimensions: 3.5cm (W) x 2.8cm (L) x 1.2cm(D)
      Strap size: 2.2cm (W) x 24cm (L)

    Has anyone bought this watch yet? If so, how is it.. any good??

  •  

    I went and bought two from Aldi Bonnyrigg (one for me and my partner). They also had a whole box left after i bought two. They were keeping them behind a register. I've tried setting it up, but im having some troubles. Its definately not picking up my heart rate properly.. maybe i've missed a setting or have a faulty one. But with 3yrs warranty, i think they expect a quality product from these monitors. It picked up my heart rate at 109, but when i manually tested my own heart rate, it was 75 beats per minute. So i think i'll go over it again tomorrow, if not, i'll call technical support.

    •  

      Me too…
      I got one and spent an hour trying to get it to read my heart rate… It just kept displaying '0' so it either does not work or I'm dead ????
      Everything else seemed to work OK though but i must say the instructions were really really bad…

      I returned it the next day and got a refund…

      I spoke to someone at the gym yesterday who has used heart rate monitors and he said sometimes, after strapping it on, you need to wave the watch right in front of the chest strap so it can connect to the signal… I'm not going to go back to Aldi to get another and try again… I'll probably stick to a 'name' brand and pay the extra $100…

      •  

        At least im not the only one. I have waved it infront of my chest strap and it does pick it up.. sometimes you need to put a little more water on the chest strap too i think. Though, the monitor just doesnt seem to be accurate at all.. My partner also got one so i tested his and it works exactly the same as mine. I havent called technical support yet either.

        I use to use Polar heart rate monitors at my work, and they seemed to pick up the heart rate alot more reguarly than this one. I havent actualy exercised with the monitor on yet though, so i dont know if it'll work better then. It should still pick up resting heart rate without a problem.. but it doesnt want to :-/

        •  

          i didn't recall seeing anything in the instructions that says you must wave it near the chest strap, so i assumed it didn't work at all and returned it…

          am currently researching which Polar model to buy…
