For ambitious cyclists, seeking improved cycling performance, the Polar CS500 presents the ultimate functional design for the ride. Take your training to the limits with daily personal heart rate target zones that optimize training, quick and safe control courtesy of the a rocker switch and oversized user-configurable display and complimented by altitude measurement that displays the inclines and declines of your ride.
The Polar CS500 also guarantees interference-free transmission courtesy of W.I.N.D technology.
Altitude is measured with an atmospheric air pressure sensor and shown as ascended and descended meters/feet and uphill/downhill steepness in percentages and grades.
An automatic age-based target zone helps you train safely and effectively, determining your heart rate target zone limits automatically according to your age-based maximum heart rate (220 minus age).
Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. The CS500 allows you to set intensity targets in a number of ways and get a visual or audible alarm when you go outside of those present zones. Training targets can be defined by heart rate or set manually, as beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage of your maximum heart rate, or as a percentage of your heart rate reserve (HRR%).
Polar OwnZone determines your personal heart rate limits for a training session. Depending on the day and time, your physical state may vary, for instance, if you are stressed or tired, or if you are not fully recovered from your latest training session, Polar can determine that information from your heart rate and guide you to your ideal training zone for that moment.
To ensure you also stay healthy and in shape, Polar OwnCal calculates the number of kilocalories expended during training. This feature allows you to follow the kilocalories expended during one training session and cumulative kilocalories expended during several training sessions.
The transmission in the CS500 is coded and automatically locks in a code to transmit your heart rate to the training computer. The training computer picks up your heart rate from your transmitter only, thereby significantly reducing interference from other training computers.
Follow your training load and recovery in the online training diary. Continuous monitoring of training load and recovery will help you recognize personal limits, avoid over or under-training, and adjust training intensity and duration according to your daily and weekly targets. For cycling specific training you can define settings up to two or three bikes in your training computer, a weekly history gathers your weekly training data for analysis while totals tracks all your training data from the last reset so you can also measure your long-term goals.
