Features

  • Body measurement features
    • 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).

    • 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® (2.4 GHz W.I.N.D.) – coded transmission

      Polar OwnCode® (2.4 GHz W.I.N.D.) – coded transmission

      Coded heart rate transmission automatically locks in a code to transmit your heart rate to the training computer. The training computer picks up your heart rate from your transmitter only. Coding significantly reduces interference from other training computers. The 2.4 GHz W.I.N.D transmission is disturbance-free from other electronic devices.

    • 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.

    • Average and maximum heart rate of each lap
    • 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 (bpm) or as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate.

    • 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 Benefit

      Training Benefit

      Motivating feedback that’s delivered right to you immediately after exercise is something that can help all of us.

  • 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.

      Distance (km, mi) can be set and measured in several ways. Training distance tells you the distance traveled during a training session. Trip distance tells you the distance from the latest trip reset. Lap distance tells you the distance of one lap. Total distance is the distance accumulated since the last reset. Odometer tells you the cumulative distance which you cannot reset.

  • s3/s3+ stride sensor features
    • Speed/Pace – current, average and maximum

      Speed/Pace – current, average and maximum

      Speed (km/h or mi/h) is measured with GPS, footpod, stride sensor or cycling speed sensor. Pace (expressed as min/km or min/mile) stands for the rate of speed. Pace is usually used in running. By setting a target pace, you can follow how fast you need to run in order to reach a certain distance in a predefined time.

    • Cadence – average and maximum
    • 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.
