Smart Coaching Features

  • Endurance Programs: Running and cycling programs include recommended warm-up, exercise, and cool-down phases for every training session, customized to your specific needs and fitness level. They optimize endurance training by adapting and updating training routines every four weeks, and you can create these programs in polarpersonaltrainer.com and upload them to the Polar RCX5.
  • Fitness Test: If you’re looking to improve your fitness and want to keep up to date with how well you’re doing, the smart Fitness Test will tell you what you need to know in just five minutes. By regularly comparing test results, you can track progress toward goals.
  • Running Index: Regular use over time allows you to see how efficient your running is. Your Running Index score is calculated automatically after every run, based on your heart rate and from the speed data collected from the GPS or stride sensor. A higher reading indicates you can run faster with less effort.
  • Smart Calories: OwnCal is the most accurate calorie counter on the market, calculating the number of calories expended during a training session based on weight, height, age, gender, individual maximum heart rate (HRmax), and how hard you’re training.
  • Training Load: Training Load helps you balance rest and training, showing at-a-glance daily cumulative training load, and advising if and when rest days are needed, and when it’s best to train harder to maintain performance improvement.
  • Zone Optimizer: This feature ensures you train at the right intensity, achieving the desired training effect and adjusting your five heart rate training zones to match your body’s current physiological condition.

This is my first heart rate monitor, and initially, I am pretty pleased. It basically does what it says it will do. I like the design of everything I have received and it looks to be well thought out and constructed nicely. I was wondering at first how well the heart rate monitor would stay in position. I was thinking that it might have a tendency to slip, but it stayed right where it was set. I have the GPS armband on order because I wanted a little more positive control, but the supplied belt clip actually holds up nicely.
All the sensors lock on nicely with RCX5, the heart rate monitor, the stride sensor and the GPS. The GPS unit locks onto satellites nicely as well, usually 10-30 seconds (and I'm in the middle of nowhere). I have only been using this for running so far, but I'll have to get my bicycle set up with the cadence sensor.
You'll need to download a PDF manual from the get go, as the included literature is lacking. It would be nice if manufacturers would at least include a flow chart of their product's menu screens with the packaging. Also the ease of their "web sinc" is out the window and again, the lack of clear instructions prevails!
I picked this brand because of the reviews and also because the batteries for the RCX5, the stride sensor, and the heart rate sensor are user replaceable.
I gave this product four stars because the product works well. I would have given it five stars if I wasn't for their sorry attempt to supply clear instructions.

Trouble with the software installation, something with the "Polar Demon.exe", I spent the whole day figuiring out how to do it, but after several tries I fixed and was able to get it installed.
The GPS does not work very well during the last times I used it in my jogging practice, it has trouble with the transmission, and it is not detected by the computer after several minutes of waiting. I check the batt level, try turning on/off, standing in absolute clear space, connecting/disconnecting it in the computer etc. and did not work. so the last workouts I had to settle with only the HRM, which works fine.
I certainly expected more for the bucks, but also I must give it a second chance and take the GPS to tech service to see what happened.
