Polar RCX3 white – Fitness verbessern

For recreational runners and cyclists who want smart guidance while preparing for an event.
  • Training Benefit gives you instant feedback after your session
  • Helps you train at the right intensity with personal sport zones
  • Running Index scores your performance
  • Tracks your route, speed and distance with the optional GPS sensor


  • Automatic age-based target zone – bpm / %

    To help you train safely and effectively, the training computer determines your heart rate target zone limits automatically according to your age-based maximum heart rate (220 minus age). The limits are determined either in beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate, or as a heart rate reserve (% HRR). See also Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and Manual target zone.

  • Average and maximum heart rate of each lap
  • Average, minimum and maximum heart rate of training
  • Heart rate – bpm / %
    Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. Heart rate can be expressed as the number of beats per minute or as percentage of your maximum heart rate. Heart rate can also be expressed as a percentage of your heart rate reserve, meaning the difference between your resting heart rate and maximum heart rate (HRR = HRmax - HRrest). In Polar software or during strength training, heart rate can be displayed as a graphical trend.
  • HR-based target zones with visual and audible alarm
    You can define your target zones for a training session based on heart rate to help define the right intensity. When you are out of the preset zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm.
  • HRmax (age-based)

    The highest number of heart beats per minute (bpm) during maximum physical exertion. For a rough estimate of your maximum heart rate, subtract your age from 220. HRmax is a useful tool for determining the intensity of training as intensity zones can be defined using HRmax. Some Polar products define maximum heart rate during the Polar Fitness Test, see also HRmax (Polar Fitness Test -based).

  • HRmax (user set)
  • Manual target zone – bpm / %
    This feature enables you to define the target zone as you want and is suitable for your training. You can set the target zone for your training as beats per minute (bpm), as a percentage of your maximum heart rate, or as a percentage of your heart rate reserve (HRR%).
  • Polar Fitness Test
    Polar Fitness Test measures your aerobic fitness at rest in just five minutes. The result, Polar OwnIndex, evaluates your maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). With the Polar Fitness Test you can measure your aerobic fitness by yourself, automatically and without any exertion. All you need is your training computer. The Polar Fitness Test is as accurate in predicting the VO2max as any sub maximal fitness test. The test is based on heart rate and heart rate variability at rest and personal information.
  • Polar OwnCal® – calorie expenditure with fat percentage
    Polar OwnCal calculates the number of kilocalories expended during training. This feature allows you to follow the kilocalories expended during one training session and cumulative kilocalories expended during several training sessions. Some Polar products also estimate the fat-burning percentage (fat% on display), that is, kilocalories expended from fat during a workout which is expressed as a percentage of the total kilocalories burned.
  • Polar OwnCode® (2.4 GHz W.I.N.D.) – coded transmission
    Coded heart rate transmission automatically locks in a code to transmit your heart rate to the training computer. The training computer picks up your heart rate from your transmitter only. Coding significantly reduces interference from other training computers. The 2.4 GHz W.I.N.D transmission is disturbance-free from other electronic devices.
  • Polar sport zones
    Polar sport zones provide an easy way to select and monitor the intensity of your training and to follow sport zones based training programs. Training is divided into five zones based on percentages of your maximum heart rate: very light (50-60%HRmax), light (60-70%HRmax), moderate (70-80%HRmax), hard (80-90%HRmax) and maximum (90-100%HRmax).
  • Polar ZoneOptimizer - personalized sport zones
    ZoneOptimizer adjusts personal sport zones for every training session based on your current physiological condition. This feature gives you the right heart rate zones depending on your physiological state at that exact moment, making sure that the you are always training at the right intensity.
  • Training benefit
    The Training Benefit feature gives you instant feedback as text on your training computer after you finish your training session: first you get a short summary Benefit, and in the training result file there is a longer Benefit text. When you transfer your training result to polarpersonaltrainer.com, there is a more physiologically oriented Benefit explanation in the training result in your Diary. Training Benefit interprets the numeric data that your training computer records during your training session and explains what kind of effects the training session had on your body and fitness. The Training Benefit feature is available in certain training computers.
  • Bike settings – for two bicycles
    You can define settings up to two to three bikes in your training computer. When you start training, you can select the bike with the correct settings for that particular training session.
  • Cadence – current, average and maximum
    Your cycling cadence stands for your pedaling rate in revolutions per minute (rpm). Cadence is the central factor in improving cycling performance. A higher cadence reduces the force needed for each pedal stroke, and thus improves overall performance. Running cadence measures how many times your either right or left foot hits the ground in one minute. Running cadence is measured as steps per minute. With this feature you can sharpen your cadence and make your ground contact time shorter. This will help you to find a balance between leg power and leg speed.
  • Autostart/stop
    By activating Autostart/autostop feature, the cycling computer starts and stops training recording automatically when you start or stop pedaling.
  • Bike settings – for two bicycles
    You can define settings up to two to three bikes in your training computer. When you start training, you can select the bike with the correct settings for that particular training session.
