A running friend of mine has one that she bought for $50 from Kathmandu - they are normally $100 but twice a year they have a 50% off sale (I think it is on right now) and she got it for $50. I know this HRM has a zone alert function.
I hope you get what you want.

I checked Target and Big W on the weekend and couldn't find any. Yet to check K-Mart.

...I was at DFO out at the airport today and spied a Kathmandu so I decided to have a look. They had HRMs for only $44.95. I asked the guy what was wrong with them and he said that they were just an older model.

Great shopping! Have fun with it!

Balri, did you end up getting a HRM from DFO, if so what was the brand/model number?
I'm looking for a cheap HRM that will also measure splits. If it will also tell me my avg HR for each split then that is a bonus.
I work at the Airport, so it's convenient for me to pop in and have a look if the one you bought might be suitable.

I can't find a model number but it is Kathmandu branded. It doesn't measure splits though and isn't able to give an average HR for the workout.
Just about the only feature it does have is the out of zone alerts which is what I needed for and the price was right.

Have you checked the stop watch function for accuracy. I bought one of the Kathmandu ones and it seems to be all over the place. I raced on Saturday and they were calling the splits, at one call I was 9 seconds behind, then up by a few seconds then behind again.
Not that I'm perturbed, because I bought it for the HR function, but just interested if yours is similarly inaccurate

That is a blood pressure monitor, not a heart rate monitor.
Most blood pressure monitors will tell you your heart rate (once), but they're a bit inconvenient to use whilst running!
