For recreational runners and cyclists who want integrated GPS with smart guidance.
Polar RC3 Bike - GPS Key Features:
Tracks your route, speed and distance using built-in GPS
Cadence sensor W.I.N.D. features:
Bike settings for two bikes: You can define settings up to two to three bikes in your training computer. When you start training, you can select the bike with the correct settings for that particular training session.
Cadence – current, average and maximum: Your cycling cadence stands for your pedaling rate in revolutions per minute (rpm). Cadence is the central factor in improving cycling performance. A higher cadence reduces the force needed for each pedal stroke, and thus improves overall performance. 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.
Integrated GPS features: back to start, distance (training, lap and total), route mapping with polarpersonaltrainer.com web service
Slim and lightweight design with rechargeable battery
