RCX3 is a five zone heart rate monitor for under $140 making it the only heart rate monitor under $150 that does advanced zone data according to the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"I know of no other watches for under $150 that segment five zones worth of data and that is important for keeping your zone data well segmented so you can see the true focal point of your training," says Rusty Squire. He adds, "In our testing we find that Polar heart rate monitors also have the most accurate calorie measurement."
Measurement and Accessory Options
"Polar RCX3 GPS is very versatile because it can be purchased in a bundle with the Polar G5 GPS transmitter," says Squire. He adds, "I've tested this watch and found the GPS to be quite accurate and a good option for running and cycling with the clip."
"Polar RCX3 also works with Polar's CS WIND speed and cadence sensors making it a great cycling option as well," says Squire. He adds, "Not only is there a cycling bundle but it can also be purchased in a running bundle."
"Polar RCX3 comes in both black and white, with the white unit being a lighter and thinner profile designed to fit a smaller woman's wrist," says Squire.
"With a lot of brands you have to spend $300 to $400 to find watches with good cycling and running features but that's not so with the Polar RCX3," says Squire. He adds, "The GPS unit is just over $200 and the cycling and running units are well under $200."
"The Polar RCX3 is water resistant but it is not waterproof, so you'd need to move up to the Polar RCX5 or Polar V800 if you want a watch for swimming or triathlon," says Squire. He adds, "The RCX3 offers a lot of advanced data at a value price to be sure."
