Trailwalker Check 5.1: information support

When climbing up and down the mountains on the trailwalker race, it's always nice to know the temperature, your ascent and descent rate, how high you are, how fast your heart is beating and whether or not you need a pit stop. well, Polar's AXN 300 can do all of the above except for the last. basically, it's an all purpose water resistant watch that tracks all your vitals via a built in altimeter, barometer and external wireless heart rate monitor. strap on the chest piece and you're ready to read your ECG and heart rate. i've tested it out on in the wild and happy to say that most functions work as promised. the thermometer is accurate if you don't wear it on your wrist, the barometer can not be determined, and the altimeter is only off by about 15m after several hundred meters of climbing. perhaps it's the humid temperature that might throw the watch off, and other times the altimeter is very accurate. the heart rate monitor is great for the gym, when you want to reach a maximum rate. most machines have that built-in, but this takes it one step further to calculate your oxygen consumption and stores all the info to see if you've improved. there's also a self test of your predicted maximal oxygen intake determined by your vital stats as well as your heart activity during rest. the watch has other basic functions like, keeping time... stop watch, dual time zones, alarms, and ... the date! good job. i'm happy with this watch, especially the large yellow version which almost never matches any of my clothes. check it out at their homepage: www.polar.fi (they are from finland). the construction of the watch is decent and looks pretty rugged. there's an optional protector which i would recommend for anyone doing outdoor activities. with this watch, i'll know exactly when i'm about to have a heart attack on this Trailwalker race.. 2 days.
