I just bought a computer/HRM a few months ago, thinking I would never get my hands on a 710 till late summer but apparently they're shipping now so - anyone have one yet?

I'm curious how the softwear is, all the wireless sensors are, etc.

Also, the power sensor; is it accurate? Worth it?

I have had mine on order for 60 days or so, but in recent email to Polar USA they tell me that it should be available in June. Regarding the Power Kit, they say it will be available in September. It should be a sweet unit, and from reports from people who have the S510, the transmitter seems to be less prone to interference.

Regarding the value of the power kit, I'm not sure. I believe that it shows a lot of promise, but these manufacturing delays worry me a little. If it can really estimate power within +- 5% then that will be good enough to track some trends.
