Bought this HRM to use while running and mountain biking. It is very good looking which makes it a pleasure to wear even when I'm not training, and when training all the functions are very useful, and given I don't need the GPS tracking (I use my cellphone for that)It's the best match between price/functionality I've found.
The watch and the chest strap are comfortable and work perfectly, just wish there was a way to transfer the info to the PC without having to spend more money on the Polar transmitter, and that it had a bit more memory to store previous trains.
While I maintain my previous observations about the Polar RS300X I have since significantly lowered it's review out of the simple fact that after about one and a half year one the plastic cover of the buttons fell off, merely an aesthetically problem as it continued working and being waterproof and after two years(not daily use, maybe 2 time a week only) the bracelet broke and there is no way to replace it has the whole casing and bracelet are a single piece, rendering the watch useless! Terrible design flaw.
