Strengths:    easy to use, espacially for multisports. big digits.

Weaknesses:    bad illumination, interference with almost every wireless device and some more including suburban trains, big trucks, cell phones, ipods, other hr monitors etc. poor data connectivity, low quality outer shell (especially plastic shiny frame)

Bottom Line:   
all rounder road cyclist covers 15000+ km/season
offers almost everything with reasonable price but none works well. just like early made chinese electronics/cars. beware.

Strengths:    its nice having a watch,computer, and heart rate monitor all in one.

Weaknesses:    Does not sink well with heart rate monitor/speed pickup. It can start recording at random times(like while your driving in your car). I think it is the frequency, I think it picks up interference.

Bottom Line:   
If you can get it to work without the random starting and stopping, keep it. I was on a ride one day and it said my max H=hart rate was 212. I must be dead!

Date Reviewed: May 8, 2009

Strengths:    full-function heart-rate monitor and cycle computer

Weaknesses:    legion

Bottom Line:   
as soon as this was 15 months old, nothing worked well. i
thought that it was just the cadence and speed sensor acting up\ losing their battery life. therefore i had them replaced under warranty. that worked, but now it looks like the base unit is at fault, and all out of warranty. right now this unit looks fanciful, but sucks in the long term. It isn't like i used extensively. Will post further if polar is willing to stand behind their product.

Polar CS300 vs. S725x

Hi guys My trusty (and old) Polar Sport Tester (year 1991 :) ) is obviously losing its breath, and I guess it's time for me to think about something new. At the moment, I'm looking at CS300 or S725x. Price difference is quite big between those two (200eur vs. 360eur), but if S725 is much better ... Read More »

Polar CS300 Speed Sensor Mounting

I just bought the CS300. The manual says to mount the magnet a max of 4 mm from the speed sensor. However, with the diameter of my front fork and the distance of the spokes from the fork, there is no way I can get even remotely close to the max distance of 4 mm while keeping the sensor somewhat para ...

Polar CS300 My review

I just bought the Polar CS300 heart rate monitor. I purchased it with the idea that it would make a decent cycling computer and I could use it for various other sports. The unit is simple to use and I'm imagine most people could get by without ever reading the manual. Some of the stuff like own zone ... Read More »

Polar CS300 question.. (mounting)
