*THE* best price on Polar s710 HRM's!(10 posts)

*THE* best price on Polar s710 HRM's!NewRoadBiker

I've been searching for the best price on one of the Polar s710 heart rate monitors and today came across the following web site: http://www.omega3bar.com/

They've got the s710's on sale right now for $235. If you order it with some of their Omega bars, it's only $221.60! I called and they have them in stock, mine's shipping out tomorrow. Anyway, just thought I'd pass this info along, I'm not affiliated in any way with this company, in fact I'd never heard of them before today, but this is just too good of a buy to not pass the info along to others who are currently looking for HRM's.

It's a killer piece of equipment! I wanna get the cadence sensor and another speed sensor for the other bike.

After seeing Duane Gran's plots on his web site (http://www.solariscentral.org/cycling/) earlier today, I was definitely sold! ...as if I hadn't already made up my mind. :o) The ability to plot heart rate, altitude and speed as a function of distance/time has a pretty high cool factor! I've often wondered what the total ascent was on some of the rides I do around here in the Smokies...now I'll be able to tell. :o)
you sure???JohnG

I read somewhere that there was no altitude accumulate function on the 710.... just max and actual. Can you confirm this???

Thanks

Well, I'm not exactly 100% sure on that point but...NewRoadBiker

...if you look at the following web page: http://www.solariscentral.org/cycling/ and look at the bottom two graphs, you can see the data it apparently provides. It looks to me that it does provide altitude accumulation as can be seen in the ascent data. However, this guy could have just estimated it from the altitude plot, I'm not really sure. I'll let you know when I get mine in the mail next week and get it up and running! :o) In the meantime, if there are any experienced s710 users out there (grzy?) could you provide some input, I'm curious now.
Try these..Patricia

I haven't got an S710..I've ordered one but I was told I wouldn't get one until the beginning of next year !..Well, I must say I live in good old Europe !
So consider yourself as quite lucky to have one next week..and for such a low price.

I have seen that guys were giving tips on how to use the S710 best on a French forum : 'cyclopedie.com/cyclosport'..you can always try that !
Another site to try : polar.fi...you'll get all the details about the S 710.

I have and have been using the 710 for about 4 weeks now. It will give you the "ascent data" both on the watch and in the uploaded file to PC.
By "ascent data" do you mean "accumulated ascent" ? nmCT1

I have the S710 and it does the altitude accumulation and ties it in with speed and HRM as well as cadence and power (with extra kits). I can do a ride and tell you exactly how much vertical was accumulated.
