Polar is one brand of heart monitoring watches that has guaranteed customer satisfaction for more than three decades. Almost any person, including myself, can vouch for their good name and reliability as manufacturers of some of the most innovative heart monitor watches. Over the years, the brand has not only relied on its name but has been involved in active research in order to improve the quality of their products and carry on with the tradition of introducing innovations into the market.
Polar RS800CX is one of the newest additions to the brand's portfolio of heart rate monitoring watches. The watch has been designed for professional athletes and runners to make strategies for their workout regimen and keep an eye on their performances at the same time. With this watch, Polar has introduced a wireless transmitter called WearLink W.I.N.D along with a comfortably adjustable chest strap. Comprising an altimeter, it gives the runners and account of their performances in proportion to the altitude they reach.
While exercising, the users are just required to start the GPS on the watch and later on check the speed they achieved in relation to their heart rate at that point in time.

Overall, this heart rate monitoring watch by Polar is not a bad watch at all. In my opinion, one of the best qualities of this watch is its ability to handle an athlete's performance data from various sports. The records can be transferred to the computer and a detailed performance chart can be generated by the users to get a better idea of the output they receive with their workout routine.
The Polar RS800CX is an overall good substitute for the more expensive brands in the market.
