Body measurement features:

  • Automatic age-based target zone - bpm / % / % HRR: To help you train safely and effectively, the training computer determines your heart rate target zone limits automatically according to your age-based maximum heart rate (220 minus age). The limits are determined either in beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate, or as a heart rate reserve (% HRR), meaning the difference between your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate (HRR = HRmax - HRrest). See also Manual target zone.
  • Average and maximum heart rate of each lap
  • Average, minimum and maximum heart rate of training
  • Heart rate – bpm / % / % HRR: Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. Heart rate can be expressed as the number of beats per minute (bpm) or as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate or as a percentage of your heart rate reserve (% HRR), meaning the difference between your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate (HRR = HRmax - HRrest).
  • HR-based target zones with visual and audible alarm: You can define your target zones for a training session based on heart rate to help define the right intensity. When you are out of the preset zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm.
  • HRmax (age-based): The highest number of heart beats per minute (bpm) during maximum physical exertion. For a rough estimate of your maximum heart rate, subtract your age from 220. HRmax is a useful tool for determining the intensity of training as intensity zones can be defined using HRmax. Some Polar products define maximum heart rate during the Polar Fitness Test, see also HRmax (Polar Fitness Test -based).
  • HRmax (Polar Fitness test-based): Some Polar products predict your HRmax simultaneously with the Polar Fitness Test. This predicted HRmax value is more accurate than the age-based formula (220 minus age).
  • HRmax (user set)
  • Manual target zone – bpm / % / % HRR: This feature enables you to define the target zone as you want and is suitable for your training. You can set the target zone for your training as beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate, or as a percentage of your heart rate reserve (HRR%).
  • Polar Fitness Test: Polar Fitness Test measures your aerobic fitness at rest in just five minutes. The result, Polar OwnIndex, evaluates your maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). With the Polar Fitness Test you can measure your aerobic fitness by yourself, automatically and without any exertion. All you need is your training computer. The Polar Fitness Test is as accurate in predicting the VO2max as any sub maximal fitness test. The test is based on heart rate and heart rate variability at rest and personal information.
  • Polar OwnCal® – calorie expenditure with altitude adjustment: Polar OwnCal calculates the number of kilocalories expended during training. This feature allows you to follow the kilocalories expended during one training session and cumulative kilocalories expended during several training sessions. The effect of the ambient air pressure is taken into account in the calorie expenditure calculations: in moderate and high altitude there is less oxygen in the air so you can do less work and expend fewer calories at the same heart rate.
  • Polar OwnCode® (2.4 GHz W.I.N.D.) – coded transmission: Coded heart rate transmission automatically locks in a code to transmit your heart rate to the training computer. The training computer picks up your heart rate from your transmitter only. Coding significantly reduces interference from other training computers. The 2.4 GHz W.I.N.D transmission is disturbance-free from other electronic devices.
  • Polar OwnOptimizer – personal training status: Polar OwnOptimizer feature is an easy and reliable test to determine whether your training is optimally developing your performance. OwnOptimizer helps you to optimize your training load during a training program so that you experience an increase in performance and do not undertrain or overtrain in the long run. Based on the test, you are provided with a scale and description of your personal training status.
  • Polar OwnZone® – personal heart rate zone: Polar OwnZone® determines your personal heart rate limits for a training session. Depending on the day and time, your physical state may vary, for instance, if you are stressed or tired, or if you are not fully recovered from your latest training session, Polar can determine that information from your heart rate and guide you to your ideal training zone for that moment.
  • Polar sport zones: Polar sport zones provide an easy way to select and monitor the intensity of your training and to follow sport zones based training programs. Training is divided into five zones based on percentages of your maximum heart rate: very light (50-60%HRmax), light (60-70%HRmax), moderate (70-80%HRmax), hard (80-90%HRmax) and maximum (90-100%HRmax).
  • R-R Intervals / Online HR Variability: R-R Intervals / Online HR Variability feature measures your heartbeat intervals and reflects autonomic nervous system activity in heart beat regulation. The R-R interval measurement is most useful at rest and at low intensities. Relaxation rate indicates the state of your physical recovery.
  • Training load – available via polarpersonaltrainer.com: This feature is available in Polar software. When you transfer training results from your training computer to polarpersonaltrainer.com, you can follow your training load and recovery in the training diary. Continuous monitoring of training load and recovery will help you recognize personal limits, avoid over- or undertraining, and adjust training intensity and duration according to your daily and weekly targets

CS cadence sensor W.I.N.D. features:

  • Bike settings – for two bicycles: 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.
