Strength:

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

Weakness:

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!!

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..

Strength:

Large Screen
Easy to access buttons
Accurate HR monitor

Weakness:

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!!

Wouldnt buy another one.

Strength:

Easy to read, set up (wireless)

Weakness:

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

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.

Strength:

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.

Weakness:

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

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.

Strength:

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

Weakness:

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.

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