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.
