For some of you who have back ordered these units, I thought I would share some email from Polar USA. It seems that they are beginning to supply some of these devices:


Dear Duane,

We have begun shipping limited quantities of the S510 and S710 products to our
dealers. Please note the initial shipments received by our dealers are more
than likely for customers who have backordered the unit. The dealers may not
necessarily have stock on the monitors until the Fall.

Below you will find a listing of dealers that have received the new units.

Once again we apologize for the delay in getting this monitor to our dealers.

... makes me wonder if I should be looking at Ciclosport HAC 4... especially since an S810 is also in the "works"...

Duane, you can add to Polar's list, Elite Bicycle, www.elitebicycle.com. I received my S510 last week but I only ordered the HRM only 7 days prior before receiving an e-mail confirmation for shipment. From the time I placed the order until it arrived to my doorstep, only two weeks had passed. I have been reading your difficulty obtaining this HRM and I had some concerns ordering as well. I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Definitely a great HRM to wait for. Much better than my old Polar Accurex II. You may want to try Elite Bicycle if the current place your ordering isn't helpful. Good luck!

Guess I need to call and find out when I get my warranty upgrade to the S710 - they said they'd ship these first, but then they've said a lot of things that haven't come true.

Thanks for being so persistent with these guys! I've been w/out a HRM for quite a while now. Using the numbers has been a key part of training. On the plus side sometimes it is better to get away from the tech and listen to your body. Still, I like having the info - I can always ignore it. ;-)

Yes in fact they are, I just got my 510 two weeks ago, It is the coolest of them all. Worth having.

Ride on!
