The Polar RCX5 will be available in ‘smart black’ and striking red’. It is available in several product sets. The Basic Set, priced at $349.95, includes the RCX5 and WearLink+ Hybrid transmitter, a fabric chest transmitter for tracking heart rate data in water. The $389.95 RCX5 Bike adds CS speed sensor W.I.N.D., while the $419.95 adds s3+ stride sensor for more accurate speed/pace and distance measurement. The RCX5 Multi will include the WearLink+ Hybrid and the G5 GPS sensor that measures speed/pace and distance and allows users to see their route on map view. It is priced at $469.95.

New RCX5 Compatible Accessories:

G5 GPS sensor: The extremely small G5 GPS sensor measures speed/pace and distance and allows users to see their route on the new map view at polarpersonaltrainer.com after a session. Incredibly light (34g) and worn with a soft, flexible armband, the G5 has an 18-hour battery life and can be recharged via micro USB.

s3+ stride sensor: The s3+ comes with a new, firm shoe attachment which guarantees more accurate speed/pace and distance measurement. This small and lightweight (23g) sensor is shock and water resistant, handling even the most demanding runs. By monitoring running cadence and average stride length, s3+ can help improve running technique. The RCX5 can also calculate your Running Index, which scores a run, based on speed and distance data from the GPS or stride sensor. While cycling, users can get speed, distance and cadence measured by adding Polar cycling sensors using W.I.N.D. technology.

WearLink+ Hybrid transmitter: The RCX5 provides heart rate data even in water with a comfortable, fabric chest transmitter. It transfers data both in 5 kHz and 2.4 GHz.
