It consists of a Polar CS600X watch receiver, a Polar Equine WearLink W.I.N.D horse heart rate transmitter and a Polar Equine Speed Kit W.I.N.D. attached to the wheel of the sulky or carriage.
The Polar Equine WearLink is placed behind the harness, it transmits the heart rate wirelessly to the Polar CS600X receiver over 10m or 30 ft away. The transmission is digital and coded, preventing cross talk to other Polar receivers in range and interferences from other electronic devices.
The Polar Equine Speed W.I.N.D. sensor is attached to wheel of the sulky or carriage. It transmits the speed wirelessly to the Polar CS600X receiver.
Equine heart monitor4This device is great, it fires up easily and quickly. The manual is comprehensive and a bit daunting, but for working with just one horse and carriage, it shouldn't be a trouble, it hasn't been for us. A significant drawback is that the mounting for the speed sensor is intended for bicycle type spokes. The heavier wooden or steel pipe spokes of a modern carriage for combined driving are too big for mounting the magnet that triggers the speed sensor. Our carriage in particular has no close structure that would allow the mounting of of the sensor/transmitter, either. This was not clear from the information. If I were to buy this again, I would buy the heart monitor and girth belt transmitter only, and just continue to use the GPS that I currently use for speed and distance. Still, it is very useful and responsive in our fitness and distance training regimen for our out of shape horse.
