RCX5 memory storage and notifications
Polar RCX5 training computer can store your heart rate, running speed/pace, and cycling speed and distance. The more data you wish to record, the more memory is used faster. A deleted training file is not removed from Week Summaries.
The RCX5 takes a sample of your training and stores it in its memory. By default it does this every 5 seconds during training. After you upload your data to polarpersonaltrainer.com, you can view a graphical representation of your training session based on the recorded samples.
You can set recording frequency to 1, 2, 5, 15 or 60 seconds. If you select 60 second recording interval, you'll get more recording time. A shorter recording interval uses more memory, you get less recording time, but the accuracy of the recorded data is greater and graphs more precise which allows you to drill into your performance in the web service.
The maximum recording times can be found in the user manual.
Shown in pre-training and in training pause modes. You have 10% or less memory left on the training computer. The remaining recording time is shown. Recording rate and number of enabled sensors affect the remaining recording time.
