Distance
Distance (km, mi) can be set and measured in several ways. Training distance tells you the distance traveled during a training session. Trip distance tells you the distance from the latest trip reset. Lap distance tells you the distance of one lap. Total distance is the distance accumulated since the last reset. Odometer tells you the cumulative distance which you traveled.

Fitness Test
Measures your aerobic fitness at rest in just five minutes. The result, Polar OwnIndex, evaluates your maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). With the Polar Fitness Test you can measure your aerobic fitness by yourself, automatically and without any exertion. The Polar Fitness Test is as accurate in predicting the VO2max as any sub maximal fitness test. The test is based on heart rate and heart rate variability at rest and personal information.

R-R Intervals /
Online HR Variability
Measures your heartbeat intervals and reflects autonomic nervous system activity in heart beat regulation. The R-R interval measurement is most useful at rest and at low intensities. Relaxation rate indicates the state of your physical recovery.

    RS800CX
R-R Intervals
     
R-R Recording
Saves heartbeat intervals, that is, intervals between successive heartbeats. This information is also shown as instantaneous heart rate in beats per minute in recorded samples. This enables the analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) using the ProTrainer 5 software with an accuracy of 1 ms.

    RS800CX
R-R Recording

     
Race Pace
Allows you to set a target speed/pace for a certain distance. It then helps pacing the run or ride by showing the current speed/pace and by telling in time, how much you are behind or ahead of the set target.

Recording Rate
Samples of your heart rate, speed, cycling cadence, power and altitude are stored either in 1, 2, 5, 15 or 60 second intervals. A longer interval gives you more recording time, while a shorter interval allows you to record more detailed data. A shorter recording rate uses the memory of the training computer up more rapidly, but enables more accurate data analysis using Polar software.

Speed / Pace
Speed (km/h or mi/h) is measured with GPS, footpod, stride sensor or cycling speed sensor. Pace (expressed as min/km or min/mile) stands for the rate of speed. Pace is usually used in running. By setting a target pace, you can follow how fast you need to run in order to reach a certain distance in a predefined time.

Cadence
Pedaling rate in revolutions per minute (rpm). A higher cadence reduces the force needed for each pedal stroke, and thus improves overall performance. Running cadence measures how many times your either right or left foot hits the ground in one minute. Running cadence is measured as steps per minute. With this feature you can sharpen your cadence and make your ground contact time shorter. This will help you to find a balance between leg power and leg speed

Heart Rate - Maximum - age based
The highest number of heart beats per minute (bpm) during maximum physical exertion. For a rough estimate of your maximum heart rate, subtract your age from 220. HRmax is a useful tool for determining the intensity of training as intensity zones can be defined using HRmax. Some Polar products define maximum heart rate during the Polar Fitness Test, see also HRmax (Polar Fitness Test -based).

CALORIES/FAT BURN features:      
OwnCal - Calories
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. Some Polar products also estimate the fat-burning percentage (fat% on display), that is, kilocalories expended from fat during a workout which is expressed as a percentage of the total kilocalories burned.
