The product works great. The heart rate sensor and gps sensor (external) all sync up and work very well. It's easy enough to use (pretty straightforward and intuitive). I'm happy with the purchase and use this all the time. The website training history works very good. It's really nice to see the historical performance and there's a ton of nice features, graphs. I like the band. This unit also seems very lighweight and comfortable... not a brick on your wrist... feels very good.

The calories burned seems to be way high IMO. I'm no expert, but I went on a 25mile bike ride and got 1500 calories burned?? My attitude is to keep the calories burned relative or rely on the training load to get a sense of the effort expended.

Here's what I'd like to see improved: The readout is somewhat faint..probably good for battery life, but not crisp like some of the timex watches that look like liquid paper (kindle). The light button is disappointing to me...need to go inidiglo. I guess if the readout was better, I wouldn't have to even try to use the light button. Lastly, the buttons seem awkward to me. I haven't had any accidental presses, which is good, but they just seem more difficult than they should be.

After suffering a serious heart attack, my doctor put me on a cardiac rehabilitation exercise program. At the hospital, I am connected to a portable EKG monitor while I exercise, and I wanted something that would provide me with similar feedback when I exercise at home or at the gym.

The Polar RCX3 has a wireless heart monitor (smaller than a business card) that you wear on a strap around your chest. The strap is elastic fabric, and quite comfortable; I had my qualms about it when investigating these things, but I don't even notice it when exercising. The M-XL chest strap wasn't overly large, I wear a size 42 jacket and it was just big enough for me. This is supposed to be snug, but larger men and women many need a larger strap or an extension to wear this comfortably. The heart monitor has a user replaceable battery good for about a year. The GPS is likewise small, about the size of a pack of Trident gum. You wear this clipped to a pocket, belt or waistband, just turn it on and it automatically picks up satellite signal and syncs itself to the watch unit. The GPS will track your mileage and speed, and also record your route and altitude while you run or hike. It is extremely accurate, within 1% of measured distances in my experience, and the route and altitude data are also spot on.

Polar has a heart monitor watch with the GPS built in, but the RCX3 is thin and light enough to wear as an everyday watch - it doesn't look like some fantastical piece of gear from NASA or MI-6. You can wear this quite comfortably at work or play (the watch is waterproof to 10 meters or so), and it doesn't look out of place if you wear a business suit during the day.

I am a runner and a cyclist. This is my first heart rate monitor and I love it. It is large, but that's true of all HRMs. The band is narrow and comfortable. It's incredibly easy to use. The watch has never lost a signal from the W.I.N.D. sensor. The GPS takes a minute or two to find a signal, but that's expected. It only loss the signal once, when I was in a heavily wooded area.

I have used the RC3X with the footpod for about a year. The watch is lightweight, and technically it works very well. But the good stops there. It has several drawbacks, specially when compared to my previous SX625 model:

1. I could not find how to simply read my heart rate. Yep, I just wanted to wear the chest strap, push a button and read my heart rate. Can't do that. You have to start a program with timing. This program will eventually clog the memory of the watch with useless info.

2. I finished a training and pushed on the stop button. The watch, instead of showing me the heart rate in real time and allow me to bring it down in a controlled manner keeps showing me the stupid "Recording stopped" message. Very useful...

3. What is the deal with the messages it posts? It is always "Great pace!" or "What a session!" even when the session was horrible and the pace was much worse than the day before. Either write something meaningful or don't say anything.

4. The absence of a program you can install in your computer to communicate with the watch is pretty annoying. Not everybody wants to have his personal data in the "cloud".

I'll keep this watch until the battery dies and then look for another brand.

I have owned this device for close to a year which means I have a fully formed opinion of it, but I recognize that it is a model that may not even be available so this review is probably going to be less than useful. But I suspect that newer models will have similar virtues and problems so hopefully it won't be a complete waste of time.

The good news is that this is a solid running watch and heart rate monitor. It also gives me reasonably accurate calorie burn data, at least with respect to cardio based activities. It isn't that hard to learn how to use, but I would recommend anyone getting the online users manual and at least read through it once. I've referred back to it a half dozen times at least.

The watch is not that easy to read, so if you are someone who sweats a lot and has "older" eyes, you may have difficulty reading some of the data as you work out. I know I do.

I've owned 4 different Polar devices over the last 25 years and two things that are consistent with all of then is that a) they are not very intuitive and b) just pushing a button doesn't mean that a lap is going to register or a function is going to change. I have no idea why Polar cannot get their buttons to easily depress but they stick and if you push too hard you may get a double recording (the dreaded 1 second lap) or you don't get the split recorded at all. I've called Polar and taken all their advice but candidly nothing works and never has. It is just a design flaw or lousy engineering. I've had zero problems with button depressing on Garmin's or Timex. My finger strength hasn't changed over the years so I feel pretty confident that the problem is with Polar and not me.

The battery replacement has been very disappointing.
