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.

Great HRM, just a few shortcomings I purchased the s725 as single device to replace my heart rate monitor and bike computer. The s725 seemed to offer all the cycling features, in addition to being a full featured heart rate monitor. While it was certainly not cheap, I am satisfied with my purchase.In terms of cycling features, it offers everything you would expect: speed, altitude, temperature, cadence and power (both with optional sensor). Both the speed and cadence sensors are wireless and have worked very well despite my worries (I don’t own the power sensor, so I can’t comment on how well it works). The only time I have encountered interference is when I’m using my HID headlight, and even then it doesn’t happen very often. My only gripe here is that both the speed and cadence sensor are kind of big and ugly. Also, the speed sensor can only be mounted on the front of the bike (or so they say). I’d like to have the option to mount it on the rear wheel so I can record speed and distance while using…

Compare S150 to S725X Maybe it’s an unfair comparison. You can find the S150 online at lots of places for about $80; the S725X is a lot more (although I found it for $250 at Colorado Cyclist). In many ways I was happy with the S150: it appeals to my cheapskate heart, lets me record avg and final HR during intervals (which I simply counted off as laps). Gave me HR AVG and Max for the workout. I never used the cycling functions. Not as nice as my cyclecomputer and the limited data recording didn’t really give me any incentive to hassle with that aspect of the HR.Why I upgraded: S150 only records ONE training session. If you press the wrong button and start a new recording session you lose your data. Interference. The bike path runs under high power lines. Suddenly your heart rate is 220 or just disappears. First off this ruins the HR Max function (no, my heart rate didn’t hit 220). Secondly, I often ended up having to cancel and restart the session to get it to start working again, which meant…
