Sure this intelligent computer measures your heart rate, indicates which training zone you're in, prevents cross talk to other monitors, has a fitness test component and can store up to a whopping 99lap times, however there is one special feature that stands this, dare I say it, 'watch' ahead of the rest. It comes with a 'foot pod' that provides you with your speed and distance traveled! Have a look at this demo. I have used a polar watch for exercising for a while now and this feature would be so handy for training sessions, especially interval work. Have this RS200sd strapped to your wrist and you will know exactly how hard you're working. You know what they say... no pain, no gain!
Features of the Polar RS200sd Running Heart Rate Monitor Watch:
* Speed and Distance
Motivate your training sessions with accurate speed, distance and pace per km/mile.
Set your running computer to automatically take laps at preset distancies. With this feature you can set your running computer to take laps based on distance, every 1 km, for example.
* Polar sport zones
Helps you to train at the right intensity. Polar sport zones provides an easy way to select and monitor the intensity of your training and to follow Polar's sport zones based training programs. The 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).
Makes it easy to stay in your target zone. A visible and moving symbol on the display of your Polar product indicating that you are inside the pre-set target zone.
Simply the easiest way to set a target zone. You can activate a target zone with a press of a button during your run. You can also deactivate the zone alarm just as easily - by pressing a button.
* Event Countdown Timer
Set your goal and stay motivated. Keeps your motivation high by showing how many days are left before your next running event (e.g. Berlin 23 days).
* Interval trainer (HR, pace, distance) guided workouts
Create your personal multizone workouts with heart rate/speed/distance and timing guidance. Allows you to create and name your own favorite workouts based on time, heart rate, speed/pace or distance guidance with up to three linked timers or distances and up to three target zones.
