Rated 4 out of 5Â by rover79 Great Monitor, Not so good strap.
I've used and abused this model for about 3 years. About a year in I noticed some cracking in the band. Another two years later it finally broke. I have owned several Polar monitors in the past and never had this problem. I also used the receiver as my everyday watch, and wore it nearly 24/7 (even in the shower). Overall this is a good training tool, with some great features and I feel is a great value in the Polar product line up. I'd be more upset about the band breaking if Polar wasn't so good with repair and customer service. I can't complain with that at all. As a matter of fact I'm replacing my old RS300X with a new RS300X thanks to Polar's trade in program. I plan to use it ONLY for training and not as my everyday time piece. Maybe it'll last a little longer that way.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by StÃ©phanie Good product but problem with the strap
I had a polar RS300x and I love it! except the strap! I changed it two times and it's broken again! It's impossible to keep it in one piece! Why polar dosen't change this strap and make a better one? I bought my polar in France and I live now in Canada (QuÃ©bec), so how can I do to change my strap here? I live close to Trois-RiviÃ¨res.
Thank you in advance for your help and to answer to my review.
I am so disapointed with this...
Rated 3 out of 5Â by kays1 Good device, terrible strap
This was my first polar product that I received as a gift. I use the watch maybe once a week; what I would consider a light to moderate use for a device like this. While the actual device/computer is functional, the strap really brought down my review of this watch. It becomes very brittle over time and breaks. Not very impressed considering this was (at the time) a pretty expensive purchase.
