    Speed, Distance, and Heart Rate

    Polar RS300X Training Computer for recreational athletes who require all essential heart rate and timing features.
    • Helps you train at the right intensity with personal sport zones
    • The Polar Fitness test measures your aerobic fitness at rest and tells you your progress
    • Displays calories burned
    Feature:

    Body measurement features

        * Automatic age-based target zone – bpm / %
        * Average and maximum heart rate of each lap
        * Average and maximum heart rate of training
        * Heart rate – bpm / %
        * 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 / %
        * 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
        * Polar OwnCode® (5kHz) – 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 prevents interference from other training computers.
        * 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).
        * 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

    G1 GPS sensor features

        * Distance – training, lap, and total
          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.
        * Speed-based target zones with visual and audible alarm
          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.
        * Speed/Pace – current, average and maximum
          Speed (km/h or mi/h) is measured with GPS, footpod, stride sensor or cycling speed sensor. Pace (expressed as min/km or min/mile) stands for the rate of speed. Pace is usually used in running. 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.

    Recording features

        * Totals
          Totals includes your training data starting from the last reset enabling you to follow your long-term training.
        * Training files (with summaries) – 16
        * Weekly history
          Weekly history gathers your weekly training data. By selecting a week, you can review your training data for the week.

    S1 footpod features

        * Distance – training, lap, and total
          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.
        * Speed/Pace – current, average and maximum
          Speed (km/h or mi/h) is measured with GPS, footpod, stride sensor or cycling speed sensor. Pace (expressed as min/km or min/mile) stands for the rate of speed. Pace is usually used in running. 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.
        * Speed/Pace-based target zones with visual and audible alarm
          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.

    Training features

        * Automatic lap recording
          With this feature you can set your training computer to take laps based on preset distance, for example, every 1 km/mi.
        * Display zoom
          Display zoom feature allows you to zoom in information on the display during training.
        * Graphical target zone indicator
          This feature points out graphically on the display the zone you are in during a training session helping you to stay on the desired intensity zone.
        * HeartTouch – button-free operation of wrist unit
          When HeartTouch is on, different training information during training can be accessed without pressing buttons, for instance, when gloves make pressing buttons difficult, by bringing your training computer close to your transmitter.
        * Interval trainer guided workouts – heart rate / pace / distance
          Create interval guided workouts based on time, heart rate, speed/pace or distance guidance with up to three linked timers or distances and up to three target zones.
        * Number of laps – 99
        * Time and distance based interval timers
          Use timers, for example, as a training tool in interval training to tell you when to switch from a harder to a lighter period and vice versa. The timers can be time- or distance- based.
        * User configurable displays – two lines
          This feature allows you to configure training computer displays to show the information that you need during your training session. Configure the displays either in the training computer or in ProTrainer 5 software.
        * ZoneLock
          ZoneLock feature helps you to accumulate certain intensity. You can either lock a zone before a training session or during it by pressing a button when you are on the desired zone.
        * ZonePointer
          ZonePointer is a visible and moving symbol on the training computer display indicating whether you are inside the pre-set target zone. This feature helps you to reach the desired intensity/pace/speed/cadence targets.

    Watch features

        * Backlight
        * Date and weekday indicator
        * Display text in English, German, French, and Spanish
        * KeyLock
          By activating KeyLock, training computer buttons are locked, and accidental presses do not cause problems, for instance, during training.
