Polar RS400 Heart Rate Monitor Watch

Polar RS400 heart rate monitor watchThe RS400 is one of Polar's advanced models, aimed at the active endurance athlete who wants to improve his or her performance by planning, monitoring and analyzing training data. According to a description at the company's own website:

When it comes to your training, it’s all about the detail. Like being able to personalize every aspect of your workout. The RS400 meets all these elements head on by helping you plan, monitor and analyze each training session.

* Synchronizes with the Polar ProTrainer 5 software for guidance, analysis and creating individual training settings
* Measures your heart rate combined with flexible training features
* Highly visible display for easy reading during training
* User configurable display for personalization of your preferences

A comprehensive review came from the ChromeWalker website. It concluded:

I think the RS400 is a good training tool. It does have some minor drawbacks:

* Somewhat overly sensitive red button (start/lap)
* Limited functionality time display screen (no customization of it like with the training screens)
* Uncomfortable and difficult to put on chest belt
* Requires you to buy the IrDA USB stick to take advantage of the PC software included

The tons of features included make up for any minor drawbacks it has:

* Fitness test/ OwnOptimizer/ Ownzone (for good or bad depending on whether you use them and think the are valuable)
* Good reception on the belt (haven’t lost signal yet)
* Big display with good customization of training features
* Comfortable to use on wrist
* Many training options and free PC software to help organize them

The best heart rate monitor for 2009 is the Polar RS400 heart rate monitor.

The Polar RS400 is a cut above the wanna be heart rate monitors from Reebok, Nike and Cardiosport, and the best heart rate monitor for monitoring your cardio training on a daily basis.

One of the things I like best about the Polar RS400 monitor is that it's compatible with tons of health club cardio equipment (no other heart rate monitor can make this claim).

You can use this monitor to actually control most Life Fitness and similar cardio machines by performing a simple synch when you start training - how cool is that?!

...I could go on and on about the Polar RS400 and why I think it's the best heart rate monitor for cardio, and why it's a virtual steal for what they're selling it for, but let me just put it this way.

The Polar RS400 will help you track your workout, keep track of interval training, keep you in a heart rate training zone with alarm reminders, has a wearable wireless transmitter, is compatible with treadmills and elliptical trainers at your club and you can transfer all the data from this monitor to your computer to track graph and track your results.

You can see a YouTube video of the RS400 here.
