Polar G1 GPS Speed and Distance Sensor for FT60 / FT80
The unit works well when it comes to measuring the total distance of your run and the average speed. It does not work well when it comes to functioning as a "speedometer" during the run (e.g. showing the current speed), as it is fluctuating too much. It was a bit heavier than I had expected, but the elastic band works well and after a while I did not notice wearing it. My main objection against recommending this unit would be that you can get a combined GPS / heart rate monitor (i.e. eliminating the need for a separate GPS unit) from Garmin for about the same price (e.g. Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver With Heart Rate Monitor).

I was a bit concerned about this item when I read the problems that some people had experienced using this accessory. Problems with battery voltage and turning off after a short time. I ran a 6 mile run with it and there was no record of the run when I returned. The documentation gave the impression that the GPS unit would be already matched to my RS800cx Polar watch. I went through the matching procedure again and ran 7 miles through Boston Common and along the Charles River (on vacation). This time the the .gpx file opened in Google Earth and showed the whole run accurately covering the path that I had taken. I have used the same AA battery for the 3 runs used to date with no problems.

Although polar has now moved to have the GPS in the wrist unit on some models, I like have it separate because the GPS tends to be a big battery drain. This unit will last an entire day while most of the wrist unit GPS will not.

Provides reasonable tracking, great when used with Google maps. Rechargeable batteries (1AA cell) do not last long... a few hours, alkaline last approx 10 or so hours. Expensive unit... so that when combined with other components is significantly more $ than Garmin units. The RS800 is however a versatile unit and the GPS component plays an important part in that performance. GPS unit does not appear as precise/sensitive as some other GPS receivers.

Sadly, the G1 goes through batteries at a rate of about 10 hours for a AA, and that's if your battery doesn't get cold. If you do much endurance training, you can eat a battery a week. Also, sometimes reception gets spotty. If I had to do it over again, I might try a garmin or other gps/HRM.

Also, reception can be spotty, and the data can seem inaccurate. It is also capped at 18 miles per hour, so can get real wonky while cycling.

This is an awesome little add on to my FT60!
Pros: You can use it in the city or country walking, running or biking. I took my bike up to northern Wisconsin and was delighted that I could get a signal out in the middle of nowhere. My bike meter and watch matched up so I knew that it did an accurate job tracking the distance.
The GPS system keeps me motivated to go out and exercise because it keeps me engaged in my work out.

Cons: The piece should be strapped to the arm that you have your watch on and on my arms I feel like the GPS is Ginormous so it takes a little getting used to for me. I am not used to wearing the equipment and on runs I was feeling a little loaded down with a water belt, the GPS,the chest strap and the watch...... There was a touch of a lag tracking pace. I would speed up and it took awhile for the GPS to catch up.

Overall- Fun toy to use. It is motivating and looking at my watch and tracking distance gives me something to do when I am getting bored on the run or the bike ride.

I own several GPS watches, Garmin and Timex. I have to say the Polar G5 GPS syncs very quickly with the GPS satellites. I would say under a minute. My Garmin and Timex can take anywhere from 1 minute to 10 minutes, averaging around 5 minutes. I've only used it a couple of times with my Polar RCX5 but I've been very happy with the quick results.

I got this sensor to use on my bike and it is working wonderfully. It boots and sync's rather quickly and provides accurate info to my RCX5. The armband is quite comfortable and the unit works perfectly when under my jacket in these colder months.

On a side note I usually start the sensor and leave it in the open while I do my pre-ride check and it is ready when I am.
