I like how it forms to your body, It says it works with all polar enables gym equipment. It looks nice. lol im kinda favoring this one. BUT it says it works with all polar gym equipment. doesnt say if its uncoded and might be for coded equipment

I've owned both and never had any complaints about either one.

Coded only matters if there are a lot of people around you (like in a race) and you are worried about picking up someone else's signal. In a gym with uncoded receivers in the equipment, a coded transmitted isn't of any benefit.

The biggest benefit is that the H2 has a user-replaceable battery so you don't have to send it back to Polar when the battery dies.

My machine only gets the signal and displays it automatically. there no way to program it any way like some other machines. Im just trying to make sure before i buy it and it doesnt work
its for the bike in my room so no one else is around

The first one (H2) looks more comfortable.
