Product Description

The Polar RCX5 Run Heart Rate Monitor is perfect for runners, triathletes and endurance athletes looking for better performance. It includes the Polar s3+ stride sensor which enables the recording of various valuable training data including:

Speed/Pace-based target zones with visual and audible alarm - when you are out of your pre-set target speed zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm.

Speed/Pace - current, average and maximum. Speed is measured in km/h or mi/h. By setting a target pace, you can follow how fast you need to run in order to reach a certain distance in a predefined time.

Running Index is based on heart rate and speed data measured during the run. It gives daily information about your performance level, both aerobic fitness and running economy. Improvement in running efficiency indicates improved economy of running performance.

Average stride length - runners adjust stride length to gather speed: stride length increases as speed increases. Yet one of the most common mistakes novice runners make is over-striding. The most efficient stride length is the natural one - the one that feels most comfortable.

Cadence - current, average and maximum. Running cadence measures how many times your either right or left foot hits the ground in one minute. Running cadence is measured as steps per minute. With this feature you can sharpen your cadence and make your ground contact time shorter. This will help you to find a balance between leg power and leg speed.

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.

Distance - training, lap, trip and total
