hi all

i am looking into buying myself a polar watch or monitor for my bike. it is basically a choice between the watch type(CS300) and the cycle specific(CS400) one. i see they both have way more than enough settings and things too check your training, heart rate, planning,altitude etc. is it really needed too have all these settings?

i obviously want too get the most out off the product, so will i use all this? cause i dont really see the point in paying alot for something that i am not really going too use.

 

and who has these products and use all the settings? or should i go with more simple?

I use a polar 725 and cannot function without it.

 

It can be used for running or cycling (or any other event that gets your heartrate up) is waterproof so it can even be used while swimming.

 

It is one of those purchases that keeps on giving.

 

I can honestly advise to buy the polar.

Had the 720i and now the CS600.  Bike specific.

 

The more gadgets / toys / settings, the cooler it is to play with........

Get what you can afford and enjoy!!

 

Positives about the Cycle specific:

It stays on the bike.

Easier to mount on flat bars

Looks better.

Negatives:

You cannot take it to the spinning class around your wrist. 

Can't wear it while having sex.

Good luck!!!

i used to use a CS200 (the 300 - 600 were not out when i bought it) and

i loved it, gave me all the info i needed. upgraded to a S725X and i

love it even more, the main reason for the upgrade i guess was for the

power meter functionality that the CS200 does not have.

 

 

 

i guess the question to ask yourself is, what do i need? if you need

heart rate, speed and cadence, the CS300 or even CS200 will be a good

buy. if you need altitude, temp etc..  you may need a more expensive

model.

 

 

 

wrt cycling only or watch type, i guess thats a personal preference, i

dont ever wear my 725 as a watch, maybe only when i drive to my morning

rides, and that is only because i dont like leaving it on my bike when

the bike is on the caddy!

Have the CS300 best investment watchwise that i have ever made, don't do much without it. Monitors all my cycling needs and then is a day to day watch as well.

Well you could put it in the condom to give yourself some girth.

 

That way it will serve a dual purpose....just remember to wear your hr belt as well...
