POLAR RS200

Post by hmhmhm »

Hi,

I'm interested in buying your product but I want to make sure that it works ok with my rs200 first. I transfered the data from a workout by the sonic link and it got properly logged in the diary. However I get no information reading in the graph?

I have a Mac Powerbook 1.67ghz PPC G4 and osx 10.4.11

thanks,

Jo

iSmartTrain works great with the cs200 - trouble is the cs200 does not store much data. See this post viewtopic.php?f=8&t=27 for more information.

Hi,
I have the same problem with the RS200. I have looked at the data file that is created and it does seem to only have averages but wasn't sure if maybe more info was being transferred. Does anyone know if it is just averages? I've only just bought my HRM and was hoping to be able to graph my heart rate - with all the functions on the RS200 I presumed it would be recording all the information.
thanks,
Fiona

Like the cs200 I am able to get some detail of my HR by using the lap function. The RS200 holds a total of 99 laps - should be enough!

Hi Fiona,
Yes, that's correct - the files from the RS200 contain only the average HR, Speed, etc., for each lap of a session, not the actual HR readings like you'd get from, say, an S625x.

Thanks & Regards

Stuart
