Q:

What's the best heart rate monitor?

I spend a lot of time exercising outdoors and I need a new heart rate monitor. What should I look for?

A:Suunto’s Quest ($250) allows you to target different heart rate zones, pre-set interval workouts, and count calories. It comes with a USB stick for uploading data to your computer, key if you keep a digital training log, and you can buy optional foot or bicycle pods ($79 and $59) to track your distance while running or cycling. All the basic watch features are there, and it even looks pretty cool.
