"When I received the item it was just rattling around in the box, no packaging or scratch resistant film and already running on the battery. Polar have this great system where if you want to replace the battery, you have to take the watch to a 'Polar Service Centre' and pay them to change it. Even better, when the battery in the chest strap dies you have to buy a new one :D.
The watch itself looks like it's made from cheap plastic and poorly assembled. I can't comment on the performance as I returned mine for a refund on the basis of its presentation on collection.
My personal opinion is that you're paying for the name and nothing else. The higher end polars are probably great but this really isn't worth the money and seriously lacks features that are commonly available on alternative HRMs."
