Product Description

The Polar RCX5 Bike Heart Rate Monitor is perfect for cyclists, triathletes, runners and endurance athletes looking for better performance.

It includes the Polar CS speed sensor W.I.N.D and universal bike mount which enable you to define settings for up to two bikes in your training computer. When you start training, you can select the bike with the correct settings for that particular training session.

The CS speed sensor W.I.N.D is able to calculate current, average and maximum cycling speed, while the Autostart/autostop feature, enables the cycling computer to start and stop training recording automatically when you start or stop pedaling.

Distance (km, mi) can be set and measured in several ways. Training distance tells you the distance traveled during a training session. Trip distance tells you the distance from the latest trip reset. Lap distance tells you the distance of one lap. Total distance is the distance accumulated since the last reset. Odometer tells you the cumulative distance which you cannot reset.

Race Pace allows you to set a target speed/pace for a certain distance. It then helps pacing the run or ride by showing the current speed/pace and by telling in time, how much you are behind or ahead of the set target.

You can define your target zones for a training session based on speed. When you are out of the preset zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm. The SpeedPointer feature tells you your speed within set speed limits.
