Polar ProTrainer 5 Software Review (Polar RS800CX PTE Review Part II)

December 22, 2009 by · 17 Comments 

In my recent review of the Polar RS800CX PTE, I covered the capabilities of the PTE as a supplement to a coach-created cycle training program.

The Suunto PC Pod is very small USB stick that allows the Suunto heart rate monitor range (T3C, T4C, and apparently the T6c) to wirelessly connect to your PC and connect to Suunto’s free Training Manager Lite software. So what does it do exactly and how useful is it? Having had the T4c for a […]
