Body Measurement Features:
Average and maximum heart rate of each lap
Average, minimum and maximum heart rate of training
Heart rate bpm / %: Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. Heart rate can be expressed as the number of beats per minute or as percentage of your maximum heart rate. Heart rate can also be expressed as a percentage of your heart rate reserve, meaning the difference between your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate (HRR = HRmax - HRrest). In Polar software or during strength training, heart rate can be displayed as a graphical trend
HRmax (aged 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 (user set)
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 fat percentage: 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. Some Polar products also estimate the fat-burning percentage (fat% on display), that is, kilocalories expended from fat during a workout which is expressed as a percentage of the total kilocalories burned
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 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)
Polar ZoneOptimizer - personalized sport zones: ZoneOptimizer adjusts personal sport zones for every training session based on your current physiological condition. This feature gives you the right heart rate zones depending on your physiological state at that exact moment, making sure that the you are always training at the right intensity
Polar Training Benefit:

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

Autostart/stop: By activating Autostart/autostop feature, the cycling computer starts and stops training recording automatically when you start or stop pedaling


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

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 – current, average and maximum
Data transfer:
Compatible with Mac (Intel-based) via USB cable
Compatible with PC via USB cable
Compatible with polarpersonaltrainer.com via USB cable

Integrated GPS features:
Back to start
Distance – training, lap, and total
Altitude data via Google Maps – using the free polarpersonaltrainer.com web service
Route mapping – opt. with polarpersonaltrainer.com web service

Running Index: Running Index is based on heart rate and speed data measured during the run. It gives daily information about your performance level, both aerobic fitness and running economy. Improvement in running efficiency indicates improved economy of running performance

Speed/Pace – current, average and maximum
Polarpersonaltrainer.com features:

Advanced training analyzing: You can easily analyze each of your training sessions in the training result view. In addition to many useful details about your training, the Curve illustrates graphically the data from the sensors that you used while training. Place your mouse cursor on the curve to see more details.

Endurance programs: The polarpersonaltrainer.com web service offers complete endurance training programs for running and cycling, including warm-up, work and cool-down phases for every session. Polar Endurance program is customized to every user’s needs and optimizes endurance training by adapting to the user’s training routines, updating the program every four weeks.

Map view
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) – 99

Weekly history: Weekly history gathers your weekly training data. By selecting a week, you can review your training data for the week
Training Features:

Number of laps – 99
Sport Profiles (5 fixed sport profiles)
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.

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

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

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.
Watch Features:
Backlight
Date and weekday indicator

s3/s3+ stride sensor features:
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

Running Index: Running Index is based on heart rate and speed data measured during the run. It gives daily information about your performance level, both aerobic fitness and running economy. Improvement in running efficiency indicates improved economy of running performance

Cadence – average and maximum
Average stride length: Stride length is the average length of one step, that is, the distance between your right and left foot contacting the ground. Runners adjust stride length to gather speed: stride length increases as speed increases. Yet one of the most common mistakes novice runners make is over-striding. The most efficient stride length is the natural one – the one that feels most comfortable.
Distance – training, lap, and total
