It is cheap and it works great! – Digital Heart Beat Rate Sensor (3.5mm Data Port) Reviews

Pros:
Works great as a replacement heart beat sensor. I bought my Kettler Verso 309 cross trainer second hand, and there was no heart beat sensor with it. You can use the handles on the machine, but when you do that, you can't use the moving handles, which would give a better work out. Also this heartbeat sensor detects your heartbeat much faster than the handles would.
Cons:
It might be a bit flimsy. the wire is thin, but I don't see a problem with it. Also the length of the cable is just right for me with this machine, and I'm about 2 meters tall. Maybe if you use a home trainer where you are further away from the console it would be a problem.
Other:
Bottomline:
Good and cheap replacement. If I bought an original one, it would have set me back around 26 usd. Makes the work out experience much better and it keeps your heart rate in check.
