Polar's New RC3 GPS Watch Slims Down, Adds Features

By November 3, 2012

Polar RC3 GPS Sport WatchThe Finland-based Polar Electro company has long been known for training electronics and quality heart rate monitors. But the company was slow to bring integrated GPS devices to market, instead relying on GPS accessory units that fed data to its watches. But Polar has taken another step toward an easier-to-use and set up, integrated GPS sport watch with its new RC3 model ($349). The RC3 has built-in GPS, a slim profile, and light weight (only 58 grams). The watch also has many training functions that have endeared Polar to athletes who are meticulous about their training, including individualized, pre-setup workouts, heart rate zone optimizer, fitness test, and training load metrics, in addition to all the basics. An accurate and durable (based on my experience) wireless heart rate monitor strap is available as an accessory, as are bicycle mounts, bike cadence sensors, and more. Image Polar
