Explanation

Body Measurement Features
Automatic Age-Based Target Zone - bpm/% X X To help you train safely and effectively, the training computer automatically determines your heart rate target zone limits according to your age-based maximum heart rate (220 minus age). The limits are determined either in beats per minute (bpm) or as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate. See also Manual target zone.
Avg & Max Heart Rate of Training X X
Heart Rate - bpm/% X X Heart rate is the measurement of the work your heart does. Heart rate can be expressed as the number of beats per minute (bpm) or as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate.
HR-based target zones with visual and audible alarm X X 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 present zones, the training computer will give a visual and audible alarm.
HRmax (user set) X
Manual Target Zone - bpm (upper limit) X X This feature enables you to define the upper limit for your target zone. You can set the upper limit for your training as beats per minute (bpm).
Polar Fitness Text X X 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 X X Polar OwnCal calculates the number of calories burned during training. This feature allows you to track the calories burned during one training session and cumulative calories burned during several training sessions. This feature also estimates the fat-burning percentage (fat% on display), that is, calories burned from fat during a workout which is expressed as a percentage of the total calories burned.
Polar OwnCode - coded transmission X X 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 prevents interference from other training computers.
Polar OwnZone - personal heart rate zone X X Polar OwnZone® determines your personal heart rate limits for a training session. Depending on the day and time, your physical state may vary, for instance, if you are stressed or tired, or if you are not fully recovered from your latest training session, Polar can determine that information from your heart rate and guide you to your ideal training zone for that moment.
Polar STAR Training Program X The adaptive and personalized Polar STAR Training Program helps you reach your training targets. The training program gives you weekly targets, including intensity and duration, for your training. The Polar STAR Training Program is based on your fitness level, activity level, training goal and personal information (weight, height, age and sex).

Speed/Pace - current, avg, and max X Speed (km/h or mi/h) is measured with GPS, footpod, stride sensor or cycling speed sensor. Pace (expressed as min/km or min/mile) stands for the rate of speed. Pace is usually used in running. By setting a target pace, you can follow how fast you need to run in order to reach a certain distance in a predefined time.
