    I'm looking to get a new heart rate monitor and my main concern is getting one that is able to track time in zone. My current one can do this but is limited to tracking 3 zones but I would like to get one that can track 5 zones. I would also like to be able to set these zones to whatever I like. I've done some online shopping and really haven't found anything that does this. It seems like all of the 5 zone HRM do not allow you to modify the zones. Can anyone recommend one based on these specifications? Thanks.

    Jeepster's right. Using Garmin's Training Software, it's as simple as picking your zone and defining whatever HR numbers you want for that zone.

    Here is the same thing from the Garmin training center for a MAC:

    Those are great suggestions but I guess I forgot a big requirement. I'm deployed on an aircraft carrier right now so I was looking for a HRM that was more a wristwatch style that would track 5 zones. Any suggestions in that regard?

    Edit: I guess the Forerunner is a stopwatch style HRM but I'm not sure I need something that "high speed" if you will. I'm doing all my training on stationary and spin bikes so I don't really need any GPS.
