Strengths:    Mucha informacion en pantalla e intuitiva, los numeros son grandes y permiten una buena lectura. Luz de fondo

Weaknesses:    La banda pectoral T31 al igual que los sensores de velocidad y cadencia no permiten el cambio de bateria. Las trabas que fijan la computadora a su base son de pesima calidad, luego de 4 meses de uso se partio una de las tres trabas que posee y el aparato no queda bien fijado a su base. El servicio de pos-venta polar es deprimente!!

Bottom Line:   
Sacando de lado el problema de la base es un buen aparato, da buenas lecturas y brinda mucha informacion, su luz de fondo permite entrenar con poca luz..

Strengths:    Large Screen
Easy to access buttons
Accurate HR monitor

Weaknesses:    Does not register slow speeds (under 8km/h) so it is unsuitable for MTB on hilly trails
Cost of replacement speed sensors and HR sensors is ridiculous. Having non replaceable batteries on these sensors is a joke. Polar take notice of Sigma!!

Bottom Line:   
Wouldnt buy another one.

Strengths:    Easy to read, set up (wireless)

Weaknesses:    It's a Polar--went kaput with the replacement of the first battery.

Bottom Line:   
I've purchased two high-end Polar products (CS600 w/power and the CS100 cyclocomputer/HRM). The CS600 was defective from the factory and cost me almost $300 to get installed and has never worked (Get a Powertap!!). The CS100, as stated above, stopped working the first time I had the battery changed. I will never buy another Polar product.

Strengths:    Reliability! I have used Sigma and Cateye frustrating me from the very beginning. The polar just works with the minimum essential data of the ride.

Weaknesses:    As mentioned by another review, the sensor batteries can only be replaced as a complete sensor unit.

Bottom Line:   
If you require basic reliable measurement that handles the odd wetting and rigours of cycling without compromising its accuracy this is the heart rate monitor for you.

Strengths:    When the computer works it is a good computer but nothing special. Clear, big screen with good visibility

Weaknesses:    Relatively pricey for what it offers..I rather buy Sigma BC 2006 if I will have to choose now. Pricey components(spare parts,...) and in sensors(speed, cadence) you cannot replace just battery but you have to buy a whole new sensor.The speed sensor is quite sensible for position of the magnet on spoke, it has to be very close.

Bottom Line:   
I don't reccommend you to buy this computer. I rather go and buy Sigma BC 2006 for the money.

Polar CS100 and C-Dale Lefty?

I think the speed sensor is just out of range when i mount the computer on the stem as it will not display speed. I'm using one of the Lefty speed sensor mount things [IMG]http://mikesbikes.com/images/library/large/cdale_8cm01_08_m.jpg[/IMG] If I hold the computer just below the handlebar it it r ...

Polar CS100, can I use any Polar chest transmitter ?

I use a real simple Polar B1 HRM. It gives me current HR, average HR and time. However, my cycling computer is dead so I figure I'd pick up the CS100 and get more HRM features and a new cycling computer. I noticed Colo Cyclist has the CS100 for $69 w/o the transmitter, so I wondered if I can just us ... Read More »

Polar CS100 Computer???

I just bought a Polar CS100 computer to use on my S-Works Epic. I'm having a difficult time getting any kind of read-out from the speed sensor. I've tried many positions with the speed sensor and spoke magnet, but still can't get any mph-reading on the the computer. Has anyone else had any luck w ... Read More »
