Hi All,

I'm trying to find a heart rate monitor which would allow me to set multiple sets of training zones. I know there's a lot of models out there which have 3-5 training zones which can be customised but I'm looking for a unit which will allow me to set one set of 3-5 zones for cycling and another set of 3-5 zones for running and if it's not too much to ask, be able to switch between the two without too much fuss.

I know there's units such as the Garmin 310XT which will do this but I simply don't need or want a GPS unit - the majority of them have functionality which I won't use and will just be a waste of money.

I currently have a Suunto T3C (about to die) which is great but I need to manually alter the limits for each of the training zones between bike and run sessions, which is a bit tedious. As I need a new one I'd rather get something that does everything I need it to.
