Re: Stuff

I'll take the golf clubs, chin up bar, and steak knives.

Great - do you want the fork and wooden block too, or just the knives?

Do the Polar Heart rate bits work with each other?

Yes, the transmitter clips onto the chest strap. Basically, I had a problem when my watch couldn't receive data from the heart rate monitor. This happened just after I'd washed the strap, so I thought that I'd damaged the sensors. I bought a new strap, but that didn't work. I then bought a new transmitter and strap together, which still didn't work, because they aren't compatible with my watch. (It turned out that the battery was flat in my original transmitter, which is rather embarrassing!) So, I haven't been able to test it, but the transmitter and strap that I bought together are designed to work as a pair, and both straps are identical.

Polar have a list of compatible watches for the WearLink+ here.

Is the double mattress firm when you sleep on it?

Not really. I've had some back pain recently, which I think is due to my mattress. Apparently you're supposed to replace them every 8 years, and I've had it for 14 years, so it feels firmer at the edges than in the middle. I'm getting a new bed delivered next week (frame and mattress), and they'll collect the old one if necessary, so I'm just checking whether anyone else could use it.

Does the sleep mask help snoring?

I don't think so - basically it's a blindfold, so that the room seems darker. That might be useful if you're trying to sleep on an aeroplane, or if your curtains don't block the streetlight outside your window. Personally, I found that the discomfort of wearing the mask outweighed the inconvenience of the light.

I should be home by 8pm tonight if that's convenient for you, otherwise we can sort something out later in the week.
