Polar A3, has all the functions someone our age could need, unless you wanted to get super super technical like the adults do. You can find em on nashbar for about $70us, they have features like avg. hr, time spent in zone, hr shown as a %, adjustable zones, watch beeps when you go out of a zone.... i have one and i love it.

Steve.... oh yah sweet you're a mod now!

When I get up in the morning, I just sit on the side of my bed and count the beats for 10 seconds. Then multiply by six. Usually I'm around 45 - 50. I've been a competitive swimmer since the age of 6, so that's probably why it's low.

I'm 14 and mines 36-38. I train a lot, but it's partly genetic, because even at about 8 it was in the 40's.

something strange is going on with mine, i was at around 60 during the racing season, now during the off-peak i am up around 70. Why is this?

The weaker your aerobic system the higher your heart rate will be. During my peak last July my resting HR was 48-52. I've not been riding as much lately so it's probably back up to around 60 now.
