WHY?

The Polar RS800 training system gave runners and serious endurance athletes the most complete heart-rate-based training solution yet. Now Polar has take the system a step further by launching the G3 GPS sensor, a compact and lightweight GPS module that communicates wirelessly to the RS800 wristwatch, letting athletes take speed and distance measurements for a variety of sports, including cycling, Nordic skiing, inline skating, and kayaking. Incorporating the SiRFstarIII chipset, the G3 sensor offers excellent coverage, a fast time to first fix, and optimal power consumption. More importantly, the addition of the G3 sensor makes the RS800 the most comprehensive planning and analysis tool available for athletes who train across multiple disciplines. Water-resistant to three bars and weighing only 80 grams (including the battery), the G3 is extremely compact and built to withstand the harshest conditions or the most extreme adventure sports. The G3, which requires a single AA battery for up to 20 hours of continual use, measures 2.36 by 2.44 by 0.94 inches (W x H x D) and includes a strap and storage pouch.

About Polar
The first EKG accurate wireless heart rate monitor was invented by Polar back in 1977 as a training tool for the Finnish National Cross Country Ski Team. The concept of "intensity training" by heart rate swept the athletic world in the eighties. By the 1990s, individuals were looking to heart rate monitors not only for performance training needs, but also for achieving everyday fitness goals. Today, the same concept of heart rate training is being used by world-class athletes as well as everyday people trying to lose weight. Polar is the leading brand among consumers, coaches, and personal trainers worldwide and the company is committed to not only producing the best products, but also being the leading educator on the benefits of heart rate based exercise.
