I comes with a battery which is very easy to install.
Arvin Araja
Furthermore, after the ride the device wasn't useful for uploading to Strava or Endomondo.
John Case
It is also capped at 18 miles per hour, so can get real wonky while cycling.

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.

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.

The G3 GPS sensor by Polar has proven unreliable for running and bike riding pace. Since I've purchased the polar S3 foot-pod for running and have the speed sensor on my bike I'm not so sure if I'll ever use it again. I've had the G3 for about 2 weeks and the battery went dead mid-run and it often lost satellite link. It's frustrating on several levels at the loss of data and the time delays when you workout is interupted. The pace didn't didn't seem real time despite adjusting the record rate. Maybe I'm spoiled cause I used the Garmin 305 for about 2 seasons and it was excellent. In 2 years, I'm sure I'll be going back to the Garmin system. Polar products have some upside but leave the money in the bank forget about purchasing the G3.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: G3
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.

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.

About 6 months ago, I purchased the G1 GPS and a Polar FT80. The GPS device works well and is easy to use. The only negative is the clip that attaches it to you is a little weak and not able to adapt to many unusual situation. However, I have been impressed with how well the device picks up signals. I have clipped the device to my hockey jersey and obtained the distance I have skated and the maximum speeds indoors while playing ice hockey. Often I use the device while skiing and I have used it while kayaking. It seems that for this price more could be offered. For example, the gps will not show you where you have been. Once, the clip broke that holds the device to your clothing. Polar promptly replaced the clip at no charge. To sum it up, the device does everything that it is advertised to do both well and simply. It has been a big benefit to my training.
