Well I picked up a Polar S710 from my LBS on Saturday and installed it overnight and raced with it this morning. From the documentation it seems to be the best thing since sliced bread, of course not everything is the same as what you read. Once it was installed (finally, damned Krysium bladed spokes) I sat down and read the manual cover to cover. Now being a computer geek I have problems with reading manuals but for the life of me I couldnt work this thing out without a manual. The best way to sum up the Polar S710 is that it is a Complicated VCR but strapped to your handlebar.
I am sure I will get used to it but I miss the simplicity of my Flightdeck. Has anyone else out there used one and how are you finding it?
I am also having problems getting a speed reading from the thing, I have set it to auto start when I start moving but it seems to start and stop for no reason even when in motion.
What really does appeal to me though is the interval training prompts it gives you, I am sure once setup properly and I have gotten a hang of it the benefits will be there.
