For those searching for a running computer that can offer you all of the important training data you need to design a smarter training plan, look no further than the Polar Rs 300x. This Polar heart rate monitor is designed for recreational athletes who want essential heart rate and timing features in their monitors. Features Automatic lap recording Time and distance interval timers Distance measurement Speed/Pace tracking for maximum, current, and average speeds EnergyPointer, for letting you know if your workout is burning fat or improving fitness Polar Fitness Test, for measuring your aerobic fitness level Polar Sport Zones, with ZoneLock and ZonePointer, to guide you in your training Interval trainer guided workouts based on time, heart rate, speed/pace, or distance HeartTouch, button-free operation The Rs 300 Series of Polar heart rate monitors helps you train at the right intensity by giving you personal sport zones for you to work with. It’s like having your own trainer or coach to guide you toward your fitness goals. Available in Orange or Black. Body measurement features Automatic age-based target zone (bpm / %)-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). See also Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and Manual target zone. Average and maximum heart rate of each lap Average 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 (bpm) or as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate. 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 (user set) Manual target zone (bpm / %)- 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)- 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 (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 yo
