Product Description

Product Description

The triple wireless CS200cad is the complete package, and the most loaded cycle computer for the money. Speed, cadence and heart rate, all wireless. Four lines of data on the display that scrolls automatically. Exclusive Polar features that links to your PC, the CS200cad is more than just a cycle computer.

Amazon.com

The handlebar-mounted Polar CS200cad combines all the features of a high-end cycle computer with a fully functional heart rate monitor--the Polar Wearklink 31 coded transmitter. It provides a full range of cycling computer functions, and offers similar features to the CS200 but adds an advanced wireless cadence sensor (which measures your pedaling rate as RPM). Like the CS100 and CS200, it includes three new innovative Polar features: the Polar Cycling Coach (a Web-based coaching program and diary), estimated time of arrival (based on your speed), and automatic display scroll, which switches the information on the display according to your preferences. The CS200cad also adds a number of additional sophisticated functions, including memory of your last seven rides, downloading ride date to a PC via microphone, indication of whether you're above or below your average speed, and the ability to predict your calorie expenditure. Features include:

  • Wireless ECG accurate heart rate with Polar OwnCode (5kHz) to prevent cross-talk from other heart rate monitors
  • Target heart rate zones with visual and audible alarms
  • Graphical comparison of heart rate and speed
  • Heart rate measurements: maximum of total and each lap, average of total
  • Wireless cycling measurements: Speed (current, average and max); trip; distance
  • Calorie consumption rate per kilometer
  • Wheel size settings for two bicycles, speed sensor installation for different fork shapes
  • Automatic lap recording (up to 50 laps) with exercise date
  • Exercise file info page with date and time
  • Semi-automatic backlighting
  • Water resistance to 10 meters (protects against rain and splashes)
  • SpeedPointer: Points out the difference between average speed/pace and actual speed/pace on the display by up/down arrows.
  • Estimated Time of Arrival: Set the distance you are going to ride, and your cycling computer calculates the estimated time of arrival based on your cycling speed.
  • Polar OwnCal: Shows your energy expenditure during one exercise session as well as your accumulated kilocalories during several exercise sessions. Because the OwnCal tracks both the energy expenditure during one exercise session and the accumulated kilocalories during a longer time e.g. one week, it helps in achieving both short term and long term goals.
  • Cycling Economy/Intensity: Enables you to foresee your calorie expenditure and secure sufficient intake on a long ride. This feature is also useful for comparing and analyzing the loads of various training types.
  • Compatible with Polar T31 and Polar T61 coded transmitters

About Polar
The first EKG accurate wireless heart rate monitor was invented by Polar back in 1977 as a training tool for the Finnish National Cross Country Ski Team. The concept of "intensity training" by heart rate swept the athletic world in the eighties. By the 1990s, individuals were looking to heart rate monitors not only for performance training needs, but also for achieving everyday fitness goals. Today, the same concept of heart rate training is being used by world-class athletes as well as everyday people trying to lose weight. Polar is the leading brand among consumers, coaches, and personal trainers worldwide and the company is committed to not only producing the best products, but also being the leading educator on the benefits of heart rate based exercise.

When it breaks, I'll buy another one.

If I were to do it all over again I would not use it on my mountain bike.

It is a little pricey as accessories go but I consider it worth it.

I'm an average biker -- 18 mph -- and not training for any races right now.

I've been using my CS200cad for about 18 months now and still like it as much as when I bought it.
When it breaks, I'll buy another one. Note that the price of this unit has not come down in 18 months! This is quite unusual and prob'ly speaks to the demand for this specific set of features. I disagree with the reviewer who said that it should provide bar graphs or record more than simple averages; I've just been copying the stat's to an Excel spreadsheet anyway and so I don't really need that on a tiny display.

What makes this unit different is the dual wireless (wheel speed & cadence) and so there's really no wires, but there's 2 extra batteries to maintain due to that (3 total). Pay attention to the cost to replace these batteries and find a cheap source for them. The backlight *eats* batteries, but it's really nice and bright.

The heart rate strap is good but the contacts need to be wet. It is quite comfortable in all positions and does not pinch. There is a particular building with lots of satellite dishes when the heart rate goes from zero to 230 and back repeatedly, so I'm guessing this is a wireless transmission failure.

It's easy to take the monitor off the bike quickly by a simple twist so you can take it with you when you lock up your bike OR to move it to say, between 2 bikes (buy a second mount for the other bike; it keeps the bikes' stat's separately).

I mostly bought it because I wanted to increase my cadence while keeping heart rate in zone, and it did just that: I went from 60 to 70 on the long rides. I like that it's got 6 different displays and one of them is always what I want to see, so those are well-designed.

This is a good cyclo-computer for the enthusiast like myself. Its hard to find a unit that combines speed, cadence, and an hrm at this price. The display has several options and most cyclists will find one that offers a decent combination of what they want to know without having to flip through different views. Sensor reliability is ok with the hrm and speed sensor, but somewhat unreliable with the cadence sensor. I transfer this unit between 3 bikes and on one bike I had to mount the unit on the top tube to pick up cadence.

Data transfer is done by sound, yes sound, and you'll need a computer with a microphone to record a ridiculous chirping song that is uploaded to the polar web site for their simple flash based analysis tool. I'll admit that the process has worked every time, but if data analysis is important to you then look elsewhere. Regardless, the data transfer is probably not a selling point to a cyclist looking at the cs200 anyways. But if it is, you're probably going to want to transfer the averages to other software if you are willing to work within the limitations.

My biggest gripe with the cs200 is the sensors and their battery life. The sensors are sealed and you cannot change the batteries without breaking them open. Polar claims they last for 2400 hours. I would claim about 200 - 400 hours ,if that much. I've been able to break a couple of them open to replace the battery, but it is easy to destroy the sensor during this process. The sensors aren't extremely expensive (less than 40 dollars), but across 3 bikes they could add up to a couple hundred dollars a year. Moreover, its aggravating to know that it would have been simple for polar to design them so the batteries were replaceable.

Well, this is very famous model for serious road cyclists, so I don't need to say too much. This CS 200cad has all functions that I need (wireless, Spd, cad, HR...etc). It's also easy to set up. Sometime, I have to adjust the cad sensor position but that's so easy, and the screen is a little busy (that means it has many info...well, that's I wanted to know, so that's okay, too!!) I also use my bike to commute sometime, so if this has the backlight, and then it's gonna be perfect. I love this, and I strongly recommend it.

Verified Purchase
I assumed this would be a great product based on the brand and price. As a spinning instructor, I have endorsed the Polar brand heart rate monitors for years because of their accuracy and durability. However, when I recently purchased a new road bike and bought this cs200cad as an accessory I was highly disappointed. I expected to be able to install the computer and magnets myself. After hours of unsuccessfully syncing the cadence/speed magnets with the computer, I finally took my bike to a shop to have everything professionally installed. I was then told that this particular brand was considered to be one of the most difficult to install because it was so "touchy." Next, I was told that even after professional installation, bikes were often returned to have things fine tuned because the whole system was so "delicate." At that point, I decided to abandon the whole Polar computer and ended up purchasing a Cat Eye double wireless which has been just awesome. I wear my regular Polar heart rate monitor so that I can keep an eye on all of the cardio stuff, but I leave it up to my Cat Eye to keep track of my biking info. Lesson learned..you can't be good at everything. Polar has heart rate monitoring down to a T and Cat Eye has cycling computers down to a T. No fusion necessary. Hope this helps. Ride on. Ann D
