Polar RS800CX

30% off the exceptional Polar RS800CX Heart Rate Monitor at Amazon.co.uk

3rd December 2011


The Finnish wizards at Polar have come up with a GPS watch for the elite athlete that tackles all the Garmins we have reviewed here head on, both in terms of functionality and style. The great news is that Amazon are currently offering a generous 30% discount off the usual marked price of the Polar RS800CX.

The RS800X comes in 4 different versions - Basic , Multi-Sport (RS800X Multi), Running (RS800X Run) and Biking (RS800X Bike). The RS800X strengths are in its versatility and customisation to fit the individual.

The basic watch comes with a heart rate monitor built in and you can add other equipment such as a GPS sensor, bike speed sensors, pedaling cadence sensors, and even handlebar mounts. The design of the RS800CX means it comes in smaller than the 305, and 310XT models from Garmin, and is similar in size to the aforementioned Forerunner 405.

The myriad of extras and technical learning curve may make this device slight overkill for the recreational runner but if you are into your stats this device excels - it's like having your very own coach both on your run and more noticeably at your computer after your run. A truly exceptional device for the serious athlete and a real Amazon bargain, so get yours while the discount lasts! 

Pros: Feels and looks a bit more like a watch, lots of customisation options, optional GPS unit includes cadence data, heart rate monitor. 

Cons: GPS not standard, add-ons need to be purchased seperately, can be slow to pick up GPS signal.
