Polar Equine Heart Rate Monitor
RS800 w/GPS
Horse Health and Well Being

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Polar Equine Heart Rate Monitor
Model: RS800 w/GPS
Category: Horse Health and Well Being

Purchase: This was a gift from my husband. He's a gadget guy and wanted me to have a way to measure my endurance horse's fitness. The monitors cost $550-$600 with the GPS option.

Likes: Very little. When it works, it works well. But most of the time I am very unhappy with the unit.

Dislikes: Where should I start? The manual stinks! Apparently, parts of the unit can be used for human athletes, and that's about all the manual addresses. The "chest strap" came with a photo of where it should be placed- guess what- it won't work if you put it there! GPS also came with very little instruction. Strap was too short for my 14.3 hand horse. Watch requires a engineering degree to link up with all of the other parts. HRM works inconsistently, as the transmitter would often come unsnapped. Finally, it came unsnapped and is lost forever somewhere along a 7 mile grassy trail through woods and hayfields. Oh, and customer service- forget it. No phone number for Polar, just a contact "form" that goes to a "page not found" after you hit submit.

Quality: Very poor design. Poor instructions. NO customer service.

Summary: Don't buy it. Spend money on V-Max, or just a stethoscope.
