(2) Styles of Polar CS 300 ?
Looking for a bike computer with the HR monitor and have been following threads on which ones to purchase. While looking around today, I'm seeing (2) styles of the Polar CS 300 or is the one website just incorrect.
This one looks like a traditional bike computer
This one looks like a watch
They both have the same model number so I'm confused.
The REI site looks incorrect to me
I have never seen a CS series that looked like that.
I would suggest against the CS series Polar's. Maybe they have improved them, but I had 2 of them year or so ago and they were very unrealiable. The Pick-up is just too freakin sensitive. Tried Stronger magnets other placements, and never got realiable distance data. The HR works awesome, but the computer functions sucked. Also if you have 2 bikes you need to buy the additonal pick-up and mount which is additional cost.
I got an Edge 305 with HR and think it is a way better value then the polar. It moves between bikes easily, and has worked every single ride. No fiddling with magnets. Maybe it is more then you need, but is by far the best bike computer I have ever owned.
