The F55 OwnZone feature automatically calculates your cardio training zones. And the Polar Own Code feature eliminates "crosstalk" from other nearby heart rate monitors. Uploads data to Polar website for review and analysis via "Sonic Link".
Comes with Wearlink soft-fabric transmitter belt - with user changeable batteries. The Standard size F-55 is in Bronze Rock or Lava. The F-55 in Red or Ice has a slightly smaller size -- designed for women.
The WearLink Transmitter is the first and only soft transmitter, combining superior Polar technology with a new fabric design. The electrodes, which pick up the heart's signals, are engineered right into the fabric strap. The result is a superior fit for any body shape, providing revolutionary comfort and full freedom of movement.
The Polar coded technology ensures that the user picks up only their heart signal and not the signal of another nearby heart rate monitor. Interference from any other heart rate monitors nearby is eliminated and an accurate signal is ensured.
The WearLink transmitter allows you to change batteries -- this new design allows Polar to deliver the first true lifetime transmitter. The reason this design is superior to other changeable battery designs lies in the fabric transmitter strap.
The WearLink fabric strap, which holds the electrodes, can be replaced at a minimal cost. In competitive changeable battery designs, the electrodes are housed within the transmitter. So after numerous battery changes, the entire transmitter must be replaced, costing $35 or more. With WearLink, you make battery changes due to the lower power consumption of the Polar technology -- and when the electrodes are worn, simply replace the strap. This makes the Polar design much more cost effective and longer lasting.
The WearLink is water resistant, while the traditional once-piece design of the Polar T-31 and T-61 are 100% water proof (the only 100% water proof transmitters on the market today). While the WearLink is water resistant, we recommend the traditional Polar design for any water sports.
The new WearLink transmitter has a battery changeable design and offers the reliability that Polar customers have come to expect.
