Polar Equine RS800CX Science
Comparing the heart monitors in the RS800 line?  Let me try to answer two key questions:  What do I get for my money?  What will it DO for me?  With that in mind, here is my description of the Polar RS800CX, in a simple clear presentation.

The Polar RS800CX is a newer model of the Polar 800 series.  If you are looking for a heart rate monitor for serious competition, this is a definite contender.  Compared to the RS800, it has a different electrode set and two additional items.

In the package is:
  •    A Polar W.I.N.D. transmitter (disturbance free transmission from all other electronic devices)
  •    A standard sized Polar textile under-saddle electrode set  (electrodes and wires are woven INTO the fabric, for a smooth, comfortable fit)
  •    An RS800 receiver (more about that later)
  •    A Polar ProTrainer 5 Equine Edition software CD (what you need to easily prepare a detailed training program and analyse results on your computer)
  •    A Polar IrDA USB adapter
  •   A USB cable
If you are an athlete, you should also know the RS800CX receiver is compatable with the Polar textile electrodes for human wear.   AND it is compatible with the Adidas Adistar Fusion Running Shoe with S3 sensor (for runners wanting to monitor stride/speed/distance) and CS speed sensor (for bicyclists).

The receiver is the same receiver as the RS800.  It:
  •     Is water resistant and has a user replaceable battery.
  •     Determines max heart rate based on fitness/age.
  •    Shows the average and max heart rate of all exercise.
  •    Shows the average and max heart rate of specific laps.
  •    Has three target training zones.
  •    Has audible alarms for under/over training.
  •    Has reminders, with visual and audible alarms.
  •    Has an impressive stop watch.
  •    Has a countdown timer.
  •    Is a basic watch.  AND, it shows 12/24 hour time, dual time zones, date and day.  Even has an alarm and snooze.
  •    It has an altimeter.  (Records all details of ascents for route profiles and meters climbed.)
  •    Has a low battery indicator and user replaceable battery.
