Polar FS3 Heart Rate Monitor Watch

Polar FS3 heart rate monitorThe FS3 is an upgraded version of Polar's popular FS1 and FS2 models, which are quite basic products, aimed at users who need a heart monitor and not much else. Extras that are found in the FS3 are several extra display functions and it adds a user profile to allow the monitor unit to set optimal heart rate training zones for you.

The latest version is the FS3C, although you will still find the earlier FS3 on sale.

According to an introduction at the official Polar website:

If you’re looking for a simple way to monitor your fitness, the FS3c has got it all sorted. Not only can it give you a brief training summary after every workout session, but its straightforward and easy-to-use features mean you have everything you need for safe, effective fitness training.

* See how the intensity of your workout affects your heart rate

* Improve fitness with an age-based intensity zone

* Keeps you on time with its watch
