I had been thinking of getting a HRM (Heart Rate Monitor) watch recently. Reason was, I wanted to know how much I had accomplish during a class (i.e RPM, Body Step or Body Combat). I had asked QQ on this as she has one herself and she told me to get something good and she mentioned the brand, Polar. Her watch itself cost close to RM500. OMG! It was so expensive. I was thinking of a range between RM200 - RM300+ maybe. So I browsed around the net and found out that Hi-Velocity is the sole distributor for the brand in Malaysia. And their office is just nearby mine. Drop by today and checked out what they have to offer and the consultant had recommended me some choices. I had mentioned that I am an indoor cyclist and he straight away know what to recommend me. I wanted something which could show me my heart rate and total calories burn during my exercise. This is the two main features which I look for.
He had recommended me F4 & F7 from the Fitness & Cross-training series. Both item will dry my wallet up RM369 & RM489 respectively. I wanted something with F7 functionality but with F4 pricing. Then he recommended me another model, RS200 from the Running Multi-sport series. It has the same features as F7 and more. The price tag for this baby is RM569. Oh yeah really nice to hear that, NO! But they were clearing some stock and he gave me a whooping 30% discount on the watch. So it's RM398.80 after less. Everything I needed. But QQ had recommended Pro Bike at Taman Megah, as a lot of instructors bought over there. So I decided to go over and check it out. They are selling at RM599 with additional 20% discount. HUH??? Showed him the price which Hi-Velocity gave me and the boss straight away agreed on the pricing and gave me another additional discount since I am such a good buyer. So at the end I got what I wanted without burning a hole in my wallet. Damn I am so good at negotiating prices.
