Power output – the Complete Cycling System

An optional feature, allowing riders to control the intensity of their cycling exercise, the complete all-in-one, wireless, training tool measures riders’ power output in comparison with their heart rate, left-right balance, pedaling index, cadence, speed and distance. Power Output is the most accurate way to control your cycling training intensity. Most of the professional cyclists use power measurement in training which is based on chain vibration and velocity.

Riders can analyse their training data by viewing the S725X Tour Edition’s wrist unit or transferring the data to Polar’s Precision Performance software or Polar Cycling Coach web service for further monitoring and analysis.
