Polar S720i Setup(10 posts)

I quick request, Does anyone use the cadence and speed sensors with the S720? I would like to see a picture of the setup. I'm debating on the S720 and I don't know if I should bother with the speed/cadence sensors when I already have the astrale.

Thanks

Don't have a picture but these sensors are very simple to install. I have the cadence on the downtube just below the cages and the magnet on the inside of the crank. The speed senor typically goes on the front fork but you could mount them on the back wheel as well. In the latter case, you would have to alter the range by opening the sensor and moving a jumper inside which will increase the output and thereby the distance you can place the sensor from the watch. I must say I love this unit if for no other reason than to keep track of your excerises. The software is great.

the advantage to having the polar sensor is that it will record the cadence along with everything else so you can view it w/ the software and track it. Or you can wait. You can always add the cadence sensor later.

I have the s720i w/ power kit. I really like it. The software is indeed one of it's best selling points.

Excellent! Thanks guys, that is exactly what I wanted to know. Just gave me a feel for the sensors without seeing them, all I've seen is some photos of them on their own.

Thanks again
