Lake Success, N.Y., USA – Polar, a company in heart rate monitoring and fitness assessment technology, introduced GPS mapping capabilities to its CS600 cycling system, creating an advanced, flexible training tool for elite and competitive cyclists – the CS600X. The new system builds on the successful CS600 with Power, which set the industry benchmark to train with power by offering the most complete power measurement system available at an affordable price.
The CS600X, when paired with Polar’s G3 GPS sensor accessory, enables cyclists to record GPS mapping information, which is then viewed through Polar ProTrainer 5 software on Google Earth or any common GPS mapping software. GPS maps are color coded for heart rate zones, helping athletes see the relationship between performance, route and terrain – providing a powerful, visual window into cycling training. The CS600X also comes equipped with increased recording and memory capacity to facilitate more frequent data measurements of metrics such as power and heart rate. For demanding athletes, this provides an even deeper level of training insight.
The CS600X can be customised to meet a cyclists training needs – from speed and cadence, to GPS mapping, to power measurement – by matching the handlebar computer with one of Polar’s wide range of W.I.N.D. sensors.
