I am considering buying the PC Coach Software and was wondering if any has bought it and recomends it. I am going to be buying the Polar S710 HRM and will be using it in conjunction with the PC Coach software. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This software really sucks!!! But it is the only software compatible with your 710.

PC Coach Elite offers very few really useful features that aren't already in PC Coach Lite [which is pretty thin on useful features itself]. To make matters worse, these are the only programs that interface with the Polar S series monitors, AND they don't let you export data to ANY OTHER file format -- not .HRM, not .XLS. So you have absolutely no choice but to use the PC Coach software with your Polar S series monitor.

The Elite version simply isn't worth the upgrade unless you plan to (a) have several users on the same software (b) plan to exchange data with a coach also using PC Coach software (c) plan to buy one of the extra training programs from PC Coach.
