Polar has just announced the RCX3 GPS heart rate monitor watch. This is exciting because Polar is good at making training kit already, and this looks like a great step towards simpler personal training.
The huge screen lets you display a selection of your favourite figures while running , cycling, or whatever it is you want to track with GPS accuracy, while also measuring your heart rate. The watch then gives you a quick readout of your efforts after exercise so you know how to improve – with more detailed data and planning awaiting you on the Polar Personal Trainer website. It even shows your recovery timings as a means to clarify how hard you worked, or didn’t.
The latest GPS tracker (which can go on the arm strap or in a pocket or bag) weighs only 18g and is the size of a lighter. But the best part is that its 20-hour battery can be charged via USB, meaning the separate watch can carry on working for months.
