    I am in LOVE with the 625X...The Polar S625X is like having a performance lab with you on every workout. All the heart rate, running and cycling data you will ever need is available right on your wrist. The S625X delivers continuous running speed without relying on where satellites are positioned. With the optional cycling and power sensors and enhanced training tools like the Polar OwnOptimizer™ recovery test, plus altitude and ascent for route profile, the S625X lets you cross train and put the power of information to work for you.

    Yesterday for example I did the OP test after 4 days training and it came back with the tr effect, I had two choices either train hard that day and then recover well, or rest yesterday and train medium intensity today...
    I am in love!!!!!!!!!!!!!It reads heart rate in actual beats or in %, so you knw if YOU are working at right % or just fooling yourself...myself whatever...
    Duckie IT IS worth it!

    ^^ my straps both stopped picking up the HR & batt died & screen frozen ... The scrren looks like a foreign language now when I still use the timer, that works. I have no luck with HR monitors but I would buy another one.

    You should just use the cal tracking on the machines you use ....










    I compared THAT with the HR monitor & WOW were they WAY off at my gym(s) ... (Yes I know how they come up with those machine cals burned, HR etc.. just funny to see in inaccuracy. If they are Polar HR ready & can pick up your readings from your strap, that can also give you a better reading)



    I want one now, thanks

    You're welcome

    I usually do use those machines, but I also know how unaccurate they are too so thats why I thought about a heart rate monitor PLus my friend told me about that cute little pink one yesterday lol... and her suggestion was just stick with a Polar so thats why I was inquiring... it does have a 2 year warranty at least

    Yup. I was too lazy to send it in to polar to be fixed, since the stores won't value it after 10 days since the date it was purchased. For $200+ IMO those things should not freeze, wearout, have screen issues etc within the first 6 months. It's not the 1st polar Ive had issues with so ...

    Enjoy your purchase
