Nice addition to the the equipment

Ken3, amazon.com

  • Summary: I purchased the foot pod to work with my FT80 to help with motivation and tracking while training for a 5K. Due to my tardiness in ordering I received it the day before the event but decided to use the event as a trial for the unit.

Big and heavy

Stein B, amazon.com

  • Summary: Big and heavy. Should have ordered Polars new foot pod. This was just a waste of money. As long as not all Polar products are not interchangeable, this was only option with the FT60 i bought for my wife.

Way too big

Wendy, amazon.com

  • Summary: I'm amazed by all the positive reviews here. Got this footpod when I bought the RS400 and have never used it (the footpod, that is.) While it is lightweight, it is ridiculously large. I wear a women's 7 1/2 shoe, so someone with bigger feet might feel different.

Expensive but worth the investment for marathon training

  • Summary: I purchased the S1 Foot Pod to use in tandem with my Polar RS300 watch in order to track distance and pace. I found the battery a little difficult to replace, but now after using it a few times a week for the past year, I have only had to change the battery once...so not that big of a deal.

Fail to see point of 97% accuracy

Jared McQueen "runtodeath", amazon.com
18 October 2010
  • Summary: Per the instruction manual (and from a lot of experience), this foot pod is 97% accurate when calibrated. Now, some days it is spot-on, but most days you are lucky to get 97%. However, I don't understand why anyone would want something that's only 97% correct. Why?

Works perfect, no surprises.

  • Summary: I purchased this foot pod to replace my previous one that stopped working on me after 3 years of good heavy use. It works just as good as the previous one, and seamless with my current RS300.

Accurate

Whitney Lewis, amazon.com

  • Summary: I've been using this product for over a year now. I have found that once calibrated it is pretty accurate for distance. Pacing is just OK. For me, it seems to bounce around +or- 30 sec per mile.
