Product Description

Amazon.com

In order to reach your fitness goals, you need to exercise at the right intensity. Designed for goal-oriented runners, the Polar RS200 wrist heart rate monitor helps you to easily and accurately measure your heart rate to help you get to just the right intensity or your exertion level. It's great for both beginning runners or more experienced runners preparing for competitions. Use the Polar Sports Zones and the Event Countdown Timer to manage your training for that key running event. You can even upload your settings to your running computer and then download your workout files to the Polar Running Coach Web Service for analysis. The RS200 offers up to 16 exercise files with summaries, date and time, and total calorie expenditure. This model features a red and gray face and strap, but it also comes in black.

With the optional S1 foot pod, you'll be able to take advantage of the RS200's Speed and Distance functions, such as speed, distance and pace per kmph/mph, target pace (with alarms and differential), trip odometer, run distance, totals for mileage, calories and time training, and summaries for distance and speed/pace.

Heart rate monitoring includes maximum heart rate (fitness test-based and age-based), maximum/average of total exercise and of each lap (up to 99 laps), and three target zones, and audible alarms. It also offers such timing features as time of day (12/24-hour display), dual time zone, day and date display, stopwatch, and alarm with snooze. It features an oversized display, easy to manipulate buttons while on the run, and a comfortable WearLink fabric transmitter.

It's a great choice for using in large groups, where other exercisers might be using wireless training gear that could interfere with your own signal. The RS100's coded transmission prevents crosstalk with other monitors so you'll get a personalized workout--even in a class environment. It also includes the following exclusive Polar features:

  • Polar Sport Zones: Polar sport zones provides an easy way to select and monitor the intensity of your training and to follow PolarÕs sport zones based training programs. The training is divided into five zones based on percentages of your maximum heart rate: very light (50-60%HRmax), light (60-70% HRmax), moderate (70-80%HRmax), hard (80-90% HRmax) and maximum (90-100% HRmax).
  • Polar OwnCal: This feature shows your energy expenditure during one exercise session as well as your accumulated kilocalories during several exercise sessions. You can set daily and weekly exercise goals in terms of calorie expenditure with the OwnCal feature. 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.
  • Polar OwnZone: This feature guides you through an appropriate warm-up routine and automatically determines a safe and effective exercise heart rate zone--your OwnZone--while taking into account your current physical condition.

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.

I've owned this watch (the black one) for about a year now. I did not purchase the foot pod accessory.

The watch has on 4 occaisions gone 'all black' lighting up every pixel on the face. When this happens you have to do a 'reboot' holding all 4 buttons down simultaneously until the watch resets. Of course all your data needs to be reentered.

THe watch has also mysteriously reset to March 24, 2005 on 4 or 5 occaisions (10am I think). The time and date are all messed up but it keeps your personal info.

The problem appears to be on the RS200 only. Check out the posts on runnersworld for many, many more disatisfied customers before making a decision on this watch.

I have used a polar heart rate monitor for my running/fitness walking in the past (Accurex), and I really appreciate the new straps (sooo much more comfortable!) and some of the features that are provided. The user-changeable battery is definitely a plus, and the weblink feature is kind of fun, although I can't seem to get my personal goals to stay programmed as a comparison for my actual sessions. That's not why I purchased this watch, so it's not a big deal, but I wish Polar would make it more consistent/reliable.

I have been using my monitor on an almost daily basis in the gym and on the street, and haven't had ANY difficulties (yet?) but I do wish Polar would make a watch that wasn't quite so bulky or cheap-looking that still has all of the features (for women anyway) - the face of this one alone practically fits across my entire wrist. It really is time to bring these little babies into the 21st century!

All in all, I am very happy with my purchase, and had no problems setting the features and settings to fit my needs (go to the Polar website to see a series of video clips that will actually walk you through the whole process...) I viewed the clips while waiting for Amazon to ship (by the way - VERY slow shipping!) and by the time I received my unit, I was able to walk right through the steps and get out the door to try this little baby out, and was very happy indeed.

Accurate and an important part of my routine, it calculates everything I need to account for my work out. It works with both gym's I work out in equipment I use; from elliptical to the stair master. It is calibrated for use with my body weight index, and heart rate and it gives me the greatest accuracy for my work out. I highly recommend anyone who both works out in the gym and jogging. I do not have the foot accessory for this, but will invest in it later on.

I've had my watch for about a month now and I love it. I had a little trouble getting my personal sport zones in it because this is my first watch but my trainer was able to do it without a problem. In fact, the trainer liked it so much that the gym is now planning to sell this watch. The rest of the set up was very easy. I love that I can personalize it to display the info that I want to keep track of during my workout. I would definately recommend this watch.
