Features

  • Body measurement features
    • Manual target zone – bpm / %

      Manual target zone – bpm / %

      This feature enables you to define the target zone as you want and is suitable for your training. You can set the target zone for your training as beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage of your maximum heart rate, or as a percentage of your heart rate reserve (HRR%).

    • HRmax (user set)
    • HRmax (age-based)

      HRmax (age-based)

      The highest number of heart beats per minute (bpm) during maximum physical exertion. For a rough estimate of your maximum heart rate, subtract your age from 220. HRmax is a useful tool for determining the intensity of training as intensity zones can be defined using HRmax. Some Polar products define maximum heart rate during the Polar Fitness Test, see also HRmax (Polar Fitness Test -based).

    • HRmax (based on Polar Fitness Test)
    • Polar Fitness Test

      Polar Fitness Test

      Polar Fitness Test measures your aerobic fitness at rest in just five minutes. The result, Polar OwnIndex, evaluates your maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). With the Polar Fitness Test you can measure your aerobic fitness by yourself, automatically and without any exertion. All you need is your training computer. The Polar Fitness Test is as accurate in predicting the VO2max as any sub maximal fitness test. The test is based on heart rate and heart rate variability at rest and personal information.

    • Polar OwnCode® (5kHz/2.4 GHz W.I.N.D.) - coded transmission
    • Polar OwnCal® – calorie expenditure with fat percentage

      Polar OwnCal® – calorie expenditure with fat percentage

      Polar OwnCal calculates the number of kilocalories expended during training. This feature allows you to follow the kilocalories expended during one training session and cumulative kilocalories expended during several training sessions. Some Polar products also estimate the fat-burning percentage (fat% on display), that is, kilocalories expended from fat during a workout which is expressed as a percentage of the total kilocalories burned.

    • HR-based target zones with visual and audible alarm

      HR-based target zones with visual and audible alarm

      You can define your target zones for a training session based on heart rate to help define the right intensity. When you are out of the preset zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm.

    • Average and maximum heart rate of each lap
    • Automatic age-based target zone – bpm / %

      Automatic age-based target zone – bpm / %

      To help you train safely and effectively, the training computer determines your heart rate target zone limits automatically according to your age-based maximum heart rate (220 minus age). The limits are determined either in beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate, or as a heart rate reserve (% HRR). See also Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and Manual target zone.

    • Average, minimum and maximum heart rate of training
    • Heart rate – bpm / %

      Heart rate – bpm / %

      Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. Heart rate can be expressed as the number of beats per minute or as percentage of your maximum heart rate. Heart rate can also be expressed as a percentage of your heart rate reserve, meaning the difference between your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate (HRR = HRmax - HRrest). In Polar software or during strength training, heart rate can be displayed as a graphical trend.

    • Polar ZoneOptimizer - personalized sport zones

      Polar ZoneOptimizer - personalized sport zones

      ZoneOptimizer adjusts personal sport zones for every training session based on your current physiological condition. This feature gives you the right heart rate zones depending on your physiological state at that exact moment, making sure that the you are always training at the right intensity.

    • Polar sport zones

      Polar sport zones

      Polar sport zones provide an easy way to select and monitor the intensity of your training and to follow sport zones based training programs. Training is divided into five zones based on percentages of your maximum heart rate: very light (50-60%HRmax), light (60-70%HRmax), moderate (70-80%HRmax), hard (80-90%HRmax) and maximum (90-100%HRmax).

  • Training features
    • Interval trainer guided workouts – heart rate / pace / distance

      Interval trainer guided workouts – heart rate / pace / distance

      Create interval workouts based on time, heart rate, speed/pace or distance and get guidance during training.

    • HeartTouch – button-free operation of wrist unit

      HeartTouch – button-free operation of wrist unit

      When HeartTouch is on, different training information during training can be accessed without pressing buttons, for instance, when gloves make pressing buttons difficult, by bringing your training computer close to your transmitter.

      This feature points out graphically on the display the zone you are in during a training session helping you to stay on the desired intensity zone.

    • Automatic lap recording

      Automatic lap recording

      With this feature you can set your training computer to take laps based on preset distance, for example, every 1 km/mi. Depending on a product you can set also time or location based laps.

    • Sport Profiles (adjustable)

      Sport Profiles (adjustable)

      Lets you list all your favorite sports and define specific settings for each one of them. For example, you can create tailored views for each sport you do and choose what data you want to see when you train: just your heart rate or just speed and distance – whatever suits you and your training needs and requirements best. It will also automatically detect the sensors you have added. You can set up to 15 sport profiles with Polar RCX5, up to 20 sport profiles with Polar V800 and M400 and up to 4 sport profiles with V650.

    • Multisport training

      Multisport training

      With just a few button presses, you can change from one sport to another during training, for example in triathlon.

    • Adjustable recording rate – 1s, 2s, 5s, 15s, or 60s

      Adjustable recording rate – 1s, 2s, 5s, 15s, or 60s

      The samples of your heart rate, speed, cycling cadence, power and altitude are stored either in 1, 2, 5, 15 or 60 second intervals. A longer interval gives you more recording time, while a shorter interval allows you to record more detailed data. A shorter recording rate uses the memory of the training computer up more rapidly, but enables more accurate data analysis using Polar software.

  • CS cadence sensor W.I.N.D. features
    • Cadence – current, average and maximum

      Cadence – current, average and maximum

      Your cycling cadence stands for your pedaling rate in revolutions per minute (rpm). Cadence is the central factor in improving cycling performance. A higher cadence reduces the force needed for each pedal stroke, and thus improves overall performance. Running cadence measures how many times your either right or left foot hits the ground in one minute. Running cadence is measured as steps per minute. With this feature you can sharpen your cadence and make your ground contact time shorter. This will help you to find a balance between leg power and leg speed.

    • Average stride length

      Average stride length

      Stride length is the average length of one step, that is, the distance between your right and left foot contacting the ground. Runners adjust stride length to gather speed: stride length increases as speed increases. Yet one of the most common mistakes novice runners make is over-striding. The most efficient stride length is the natural one – the one that feels most comfortable.
