Polar RS800 not just another heart rate monitor

A heart rate monitor with an attitude.


The RS800 has been designed for serious endurance athletes and competition runners. The system provides an unprecedented amount of feedback on body performance and enables the planning, tracking and analysis of training to an exacting level near before realized.

The Polar RS800sd Running Computer is a complete system for planning, monitoring and analyzing your training. It provides an optimum combination of features for elite level athletes and their coaches. With the new Polar WearLink transmitter W.I.N.D., the Polar RS800sd? is part of the world's first integrated training system together with adidas running gear. It also comes with the new Polar s3 stride sensor W.I.N.D. for detailed speed/pace and distance tracking, and is compatible with Polar G3 GPS Sensor W.I.N.D.

"If you can learn to run with a shorter faster stride in events like long distance triathlons, half or full marathons you will be more economical and consequently more likely to keep running for the entire event" says Olympic Triathlon Coach, Brendon Downey. Distance running performance is a function of fitness and running economy and there is no other running computer available that can help runners work on both these factors to anything like the level of the RS800sd.

If your one of those people that doesn't like reading manuals then opt for a basic heart rate monitor because this one is so packed with tech it may take a month to learn how to use it. For more information go to POLARUSA
