I have used Polar monitors for a number of years now and my previous one finaly gave up 6 months ago at which point I bought an RS200.

It is simnplicity in itself to get up and running with it. It links with the free online polar log book and is generally a well produced HRM with a robust feel to it.

Unlike the review above (maybe this person had a different chest strap, but the one supplied with the watch I recieved has a user replacable battery in the wearlink (chest strap).

The watch produces good summary information about the run and can maintain a history of exercise (14 prevous I think) which can then be uploaded.

There are several features in the watch that are useful to beginners, like finding your "ownzone" based on the exercise you are doing.

I would recommend this HRM to anyone starting up, though if you want to be able to use the Polar training software on your PC you will need to go for an RS400 or higher.

Absolutely fantastic, simple to understand and set up. The watch and strap are very comfortable. Was using it within a few hours of it arriving as instructions are clear and straightforward. Great addition to my running, has given me new goals, direction and structure. Made me realise also that my running is far better than I thought! Reccommend it to pros and beginners alike.

This is certainly a good Heart Rate Monitor. No concerns about recommending it. I will focus only on the points that leave it short of 5 stars. These do not affect the unit's functions but do add a bit of unnecessary hassle.

First, the instructions and menus etc are far from intuitive. It is over two weeks since I got this as a Christmas present and I have still not figured out how to get the beep to sound when outside my target zone. This may be a result of the ageing process (I am 54) but it may be something to bear in mind. I would not say that you need a PhD to follow the manual, but it might help! In practice not a huge issue - I just keep an eye on the display - more of an irritation.

Second, the TZs - Training Zones - calculate as % of maximum heart rate, not as % of heart rate range (max - min HR) added to min HR. I firmly believe that this is not the right way to calculate intensity. It would appear that Polar agree, because the accompanying booklet on HR training takes the HRR approach. In addition, the unit asks for minimum HR - but then does nothing with it.

The result is that the TZs are typically too low. For example my own Max is about 170 and Min a measured 54. 70% is therefore about 136, which feels about right for basic cardio vascular training (the science behind this is in John L. Parker's excellent book). 70% of max is just under 120, which is way too low for a serious training effect. 50% of my Max HR is about 85, which is simply not exercise at all.

This seems sloppy on Polar's part. Working out the HR ranges is a bit of a hassle and the unit has all the information it needs to do it for the user. The only way around this is to enter the TZs manually, which is complicated by having to work in %s of max HR and not in absolute numbers.

Hi,
Bought this on the recommendation of a friend who has one, as I've just started running, along with mountain biking and circuit training.
Firstly, IGNORE THE COMMENTS ABOUT THE BATTERY NOT BEING REPLACEABLE.
It was the first thing I looked at when I opened the box. There is a slot on the back of the heart rate sensor that you put a coin in, twist it open, and low and behold, the battery comes out. It also tells you in the instruction book how to do it, no wonder they were off hand when he rang up complaining about it.
Other than that, it does exactly what it says on the tin, it's easy to use, I worked it all out without having to look at the instructions.
Stores plenty of data to compare your times against previous efforts. I don't know if each one is coded differently, but I play badminton and go running with a friend with the same one, and have not had any issues with interference.
All in all, highly recommended!

Colour Name: Black
I have not previously used any kind of heart rate monitor, so cannot compare against other models or brands, this is the only reason i didn't give it five stars. It seems to work as well as i had expected and is intuitive to use, i did look at the book for some of the 'a bit different' functions, like transfering your training info to the PC. The useful features i have noticed are mainly the big red button, easily accesable and okays or starts main features. The lock buttons button, which means when you do accidentaly press the big red button, it doesn't start recording a random training session. Easy to understand, use and see results, and menu system. My initial intention was to use it only for training, and to revert to my normal watch at other times, however the features as a watch are fine and i now use it unless on some posh do (not often), it provides dual time, the main display gives normal info in a clear display time largest, day month year above (also a picture of a man running, i think to try and remind you to go running), it has alarm (which can be set for daily, mon-fri only, and some others),theres a subtle blue backlight at the press of the button. The heartrate belt and monitor is included and needs no setup, is comfortable to wear and just needs the sensors running under water before use, the watch picked up the sensor straight away. There are a whole array of further features, which as a novice i haven't realy investigated yet. It has the ability to tie in with the footpod, which isn't included, and then can aparently record distance (not via gps, through setting it up and motion).
The screen is easy to see, even when under a little pressure on the running track trying to improve my lap time. Overall very happy with the prodcut, especially at the Amazon price of £69, i recently saw it in my local sports supermarket priced at 149.
