Pair Heart Rate Sensor with RCX3 / RCX5


Polar RCX5 training computer is compatible with Polar H7, Polar WearLink®, Polar WearLink® Hybrid and Polar WearLink® transmitter W.I.N.D. heart rate sensors.
Polar RCX3 training computer is compatible with Polar WearLink® Hybrid and Polar WearLink® transmitter W.I.N.D. heart rate sensors.

If you purchase a new Hybrid / W.I.N.D. heart rate sensor as an accessory, you need to introduce the heart rate sensor to the training computer. This is called pairing and it takes only a few seconds. Pairing ensures that your training computer receives signals from your accessory only, and enables disturbance-free training in a group.

There is no need to introduce a new Polar H7 or Polar WearLink®heart rate sensor to the training computer. RCX5 will find the heart rate sensor signal automatically.

Before entering an event or race, make sure that you do the pairing at home. This is to prevent interference due to the long-range data transmission.

To pair the heart rate sensor
Wear the training computer and the heart rate sensor, and make sure you are far (40 m/ 131 ft) from other Hybrid / W.I.N.D. heart rate sensors.

1. In time mode press Up button to enter to the Menu.
2. Select Settings with Up or Down button and press OK.
3. Select Sport profiles and press OK.
4. Select one of the sports and press OK.
5. Select Heart rate transmitter and press OK.
6. Select Search new and press OK.
7. The training computer starts searching for the heart rate sensor signal, Searching new heart rate transmitter is displayed.

When the new heart rate sensor is identified, Heart rate transmitter is found is displayed. Pairing is complete.

If the search is not successful, Heart rate transmitter not found or Other heart rate transmitters interfering. Move further. , Try again? YES / NO is displayed.
Select YES to start the search again or NO to cancel the searching.

To return to time mode, press and hold Back button.

There can be only one heart rate sensor paired to your RCX3 / RCX5. If you pair another heart rate sensor to the training computer, the previous heart rate sensor is removed from memory.
