New Products From Polar: RS300X G1/RS300X sd

Polar RS300X G1/RS300X sd

Polar are about to release a new product, the RS300X G1 which supports the Polar G1 GPS device and RS300X sd, a foot pod compatible version.

The RS300X is designed for recreational athletes, but with all the features packed into it, it could easily be useful to those who are pushing for a little extra performance. The RS300X watch is compatible with the Polar S1 foot pod and G1 GPS sensor. If purchased without these devices it can be upgraded in future.

The watch guides you to the right intensity with personal training zones, displays how many calories you’ve burned, tracks your training and can store up to 16 training sessions and is compatible with polarpersonaltrainer.com with optional Polar FlowLink.

We have written about the Polar RS100 heart rate monitor watches before.

The RS300X supercedes the RS200 watches and is a step up from the RS100 Polar watch.

This watch will be released on March 30th, 2009 and is available for pre-order on Amazon.
