A satisfied customer from Belgium! email@example.com
From New Zealand: The packages arrived this afternoon – NZ customs has had them since 5 January.
We are, needless to say, extremely impressed with the service you have provided. Despite ordering from the internet on many occasions, there is always an element of concern when dealing with someone for the first time. Your prompt response to the few questions we had quickly allayed any doubts we might have had. Rest assured, we will be extremely quick in recommending you to our friends. And do feel free to have people email us if they want a referral – but not too many . Very best regards,
Louise and Philip, PhilipShambrook@xtra.co.nz
From New Zealand: Just a quick note to say that my Polar s520 HRM arrived this morning in the mail, packaged thoroughly and in perfect condition. I initially had
some concern over the shipping as I placed my order during the busy
Christmas mailing time period, but it still arrived in 6 days! Thank
you for your excellent service, I look forward to dealing with you in the
future, and will fully recommend your store to my friends.
Thanks, Lee, firstname.lastname@example.org

From UK: Just a note to inform you of the safe delivery of my HRM.
What can I say! Unbelievable equipment at unbelievable prices with
unbelievable service. Many, many, many (etc) thanks for the speed of
service. You would be lucky to get a parcel delivered in the UK in
that 10 days normally.
You will certainly get my recommendation around my sporting colleagues.
From UK: A quick note to say a thousand thankyou's!!! Just received my Timex
only SIX days from order (and that included a weekend!). The biggest
was of course the UK customs! Even paying the f*&king VAT and handling
in the UK I have save over 90 Pounds.
Excellent speedy service - will recommend to all...

Another One from UK: Just wanted to say a big, big thank-you for the Timex Bodylink System arrived on Monday and I haven't taken the watch off my wrist since!
I will definately recommend you to anyone from our running/triathlon club that are looking at purchasing a Heart Rate Monitor.
Total costs were as follows for any other UK customers thinking of purchasing this model;
1 Timex Bodylink 59551 Unit with New Design GPS - £130.63
Shipping - £28.50
UK Customs VAT - £23.77
Clearance Fee - £13.50
Total costs - £196.40
Typical UK costs - £275.00 (probably with the older GPS unit as well!)
Saving £78.60 - WOW!
Once again many thanks.
From Netherlands , Just a few lines to let you know that the order with number 1079 arrived. Everything is fine and working, just had my first training on my bike today. All sensors are working perfectly. It took a while for the shipment to pass customs and the watch was already activated when I opened the box. Now I have to invest some time in learning all the functions, but it's fun to do. Thanks, Danny , firstname.lastname@example.org
I guess you want to know the price of the package over here.
The lowest price I could find for the S720i was 285,- euro, that's without the Ir-interface and the cadans sensor. And most stores didn't get under the 300,- euro. Some of them sell it for the catalog price (380,- euro).
The interface cost about 40,- euro and the cadans sensor about the same.
So even with the money I had to pay customs (60,- euro) your deal is cheaper for me.
From Greece: I have purchased a Polar M 61 heart reat monitor.
The service is excellent.
I strongly recommend this store.
From Australia, 5/29/2005, Just a note to say thanks for the Suunto T6. It's fantastic, and your business should be congratulated.
A turn around time of 5 days from USA to have the watch in my hands was fantastic. Fantastic prices too,
half the price to what I could purchase it from here. Awesome service.
From New Zealand: Hi there, i would like to thank you guys in the excellent service you
prodived to me in New Zealand. One of the very few online stores i know
will provide an quality service.

From New Zealand,
I have recieved my 720i and am loving it. It is a great training tool for both the Mountain Bike and road bike as well as running.
I have passed the news on to others but they may be slow on the uptake.
In you email you mentioned something about free accessories. I was wondering what accessories this was referring to, if this is still on the cards, and if so how do I get hold of them?
I received the HRM last week. I absolutely love it. Do you stock the Polar S150?
I purchased a M61 back in March... Just really starting to understand
and use all the features, excellent motivational tool. I set my OWNZONE, turn on the alarm and push...
. What a great product! I love it.
Thanks again for the monitor......I received it today and love it...

From New Zealand:Hi,
I have had my Suunto 9xi watch for some time now and everything is going very well. I am writing to thank you for your very good service and great price - thank you! For your information, I enquired in a local shop a day before making the order with you. They said they would email me information on the Suunto watch. The watch from you arrived a day before the email from my local store, I think this speaks volumes for your service.
Malcolm, firstname.lastname@example.org, 7/2006
I just wanted to say how great everything worked out ordering and paying through your website!
We placed the order (for 2 pcs Polar S625X) on a friday at 11AM (Swedish time) and I picked it up on the following thursday. This includes the time it took through costums and an extra day for the swedish postal service to notify me that I could pick the package up.
All in all a great bargain and excellent service!!! We love our new Polar S625X watches!!!!!!! We'll recommend you to everyone we know!

From Australia: To Whom it may Concern,
I received yesterday, the 23rd September, in beatiful downtown
Australia your parcel with my
Polar S625X in it. I placed the order with you on the 18th and so it
only 5 days to get here!
Now, this is service with a capital C and in my opinion you are giving
new meaning to the phrase "being
user-friendly", in particular with that parcel tracking ability.
to say that with this kind of service it
would be nay impossible not to want to talk about it with others.
Thank you very much for a job well done.
From Australia: I live all the way in Australia & I was glad to have received my heart
rate monitor within days. THANKYOU! How can I write some positive
feedback t put on your website? email@example.com
YOU ARE A LIVING LEGEND!!
Just to let you know that the two 720i's and accessories arrived today
Sydney perfect condition. I didn't think it would be possible for
something to ship from the USA to Australia so fast but you have
proved otherwise! Adam and I are both really pleased with how quickly
order got here and how courteous and helpful you were throughout the
transaction. I know I asked a LOT of questions and we wrote back and
many times, so the most sincere thanks for all you have done to help.
will recommend your web site to all my cycling and triathlete mates.
should hear from both Michael and Steve shortly. firstname.lastname@example.org

From New Zealand: To whom it may concern,
I am writing a quick note to say how impressed I am with the product I
bought and service recieved.
I am from New Zealand and have bought a few sports products off the web
in the past.
Firstly, when I asked a question regarding the HRM, the email responce
was swift and I recieved it the same day I sent it, which is not normal
given the time differences.
Secondly, following purchase, I was very impressed with the speed in
which I recieved confirmation of order, and confirmation of shipping (the
Thirdly, I recieved the goods in 6 days (4 working days) of purchase-
which is a record for non priority US-NZ shipments for myself.
Finally, the price was very competitive. It cost me under $170NZ all
inc. Normal retail in NZ is about $250 for a single unit. In past web
purchases, the total cost has sometimes only been marginally better
than what I can get the product for from the importers (mates), in this
case, a lot better
I have dealt with other web sites in the past, and from my perspective
above all else the above four points are the most important features
with buying products from the web.
Possibly the best compliment I can give you is to recommend you to
friends that are looking at HRM's.
