Polar has just announced its very first fully integrated RC3 GPS training watch. Until now it kept the GPS unit separate so that your watch battery would last for a good year – but Polar has at last gone the way of Garmin and integrated the GPS.
Polar hasn't just given it a go to see if it works – it’s fully engineered the watch to cram in a huge 12 hours of battery in a 58g watch. Plus you still have a sharp, large display. Useful for the wide range of data the watch can record – including heart rate zones, Smart Coach information, and even a Fitness Test feature.
Once you've recorded all that data, you can upload your efforts to polarpersonaltrainer.com to view in more detail and share on Facebook.
Local pricing for the Polar RC3 GPS is not yet available, but the watch should in stores around September. A model with a CS Cadence sensor will be launched later in 2012.
