Test with OwnIndex®
Fitness Test measures your aerobic/cardiovascular fitness at rest in just
five minutes. The result, Polar OwnIndex, predicts your maximal oxygen uptake
(VO2max). With the Polar Fitness Test you can measure your aerobic fitness by
yourself, automatically and without any exertion. No other equipment other than
a heart rate monitor is needed. The Polar Fitness Test is as accurate in
predicting the VO2maxas any sub-maximal fitness test. The test is based on
gender, age, height, body weight, level of physical activity, heart rate and
heart rate variability at rest. The OwnIndex ranges usually from 20 to 95 and
is comparable to VO2max, the golden standard of aerobic fitness. OwnIndex is
most meaningful when following changes in your fitness over a long period of
time. Find out how fit you are for your age and gender by comparing your result
to the global references listed in the Polar user's manuals.
OwnCal® Calorie Expenditure
OwnCal feature shows your energy expenditure during one exercise session as
well as your accumulated kilocalories during several exercise sessions. You can
set daily and weekly exercise goals in terms of calorie expenditure with the
OwnCal feature. Because the OwnCal tracks both the energy expenditure during
one exercise session and the accumulated kilocalories during a longer time e.g.
one week, it helps in achieving both short term and long term goals.
OwnCode® Coded Signal
As more and more people use heart rate
monitors today, preventing cross talk from other devices in group situations at
the gym or when jogging with a friend becomes essential. The unique
OwnCode coded technology blocks unwanted signals from other heart rate
monitors, ensuring disturbance-free transmission of your heart rate data.
