Polar S-625X Heart Rate Monitors
The ultimate cycling computer!
The Polar S-625X is like having a performance lab with you on every workout. All the heart rate, running and cycling data you will ever need is available right on your wrist. The Polar S625X delivers continuous running speed without relying on where satellites are positioned. With the optional cycling and power sensors and enhanced training tools like the Polar OwnOptimizer™ recovery test, plus altitude and ascent for route profile, the PolarS625X lets you cross train and put the power of information to work for you.
The Polar S625X is a combined heart rate monitor and running speed and distance device. It comes with the S-1 foot pod - Polar's footpod technology is highly accurate - - It is not a pedometer, it does not count steps, nor does it rely on an equal stride length. The Polar footpod measures 360 degree, 3-D, forces of inertia (speed, magnitude, impact, direction etc). These sensitive accelerometers then translate these measurements in to realtime speed and distance -- with approximately 95-97% accuracy.
For cyclists, the Polar S625X Running Computer is fully compatible with all Polar cycling sensors (speed, distance, cadence and power output). Base your training on heart rate, speed, cadence, altitude and optional power output information. The Complete Cycling System consists of a Bike Mount Set, Speed and Cadence Sensors and an optional Power Output Sensor Set.
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.
