Polar FT40 - Discontinued ?
Was looking to buy this watch for the last few weeks, but seems that this model was discontinued:

1. Cannot find it in Amazon or other major sport shop.
2. Saw in one of the web sites that this model does not exist any more.

Is this true ?
Do Polar plan to release a new models with the same features ? (Was mostly interested in the following 2 :
* Energy Pointer
* Fitness test

Is there any good replacement ?
Thanks for you suggestions / answers.

Consider the FT60!




Only the FT60 (and FT80) have the STAR Program.

The STAR Program is an exceptional intelligent and self adapting Smart Coaching system! Everything is entirely built in to the wrist unit.

There is no need for any Internet Connectivity or Syncing!

The STAR Program records all Training Sessions you perform w/ the HR Sensor. After the first six (6) weeks, it and self adapts to your performance achievement levels. This continues on varying multiple week intervals for as long as you continue using the FT60.

You simply configure the STAR Pgm for your objective: Weight Loss or Improve Fitness or Maximize Fitness, start with a Fitness Test and it automatically sets your Weekly Heart Rate Zone Durations and Weekly Calorie Burn Target. Reach (approach or exceed) these Weekly Target goals and the STAR Pgm advises you every Monday Morning!

Optionally you may get the FlowLink Upload device (included with the FT80) to preserve your Training Sessions on the PolarPersonalTrainer.com web service. The FT60 can hold 99 Training Sessions, Months of Weekly Summary Data, your Weight Trend History, Fitness Test Trend History, and more....

There's also a White Silicone Casing and Wrist Strap version which was recently introduced!

I've been using the STAR Program for over 4 years and it is a proven success! The FT60 and FT80 are tough to find at many retailers, but they are readily available from well stocked Authorized Polar Resellers Online. Check out http://www.heartratemonitorsusa.com/...Fczm7Aodi0cAiA

Thanks
Just ordered the FT60, using the link you have enclosed.
Also was able to find a coupon online (10% discount) which reduced the price to ~$105 - good price.
Waiting to get the watch.
Thanks.
