Polar F11 and Marathon Training
By arungupta on Feb 21, 2007
A monthly view provides a summary for the entire month and shows the days on which any kind of physical activity was recorded by F11.
A weekly view provides more detail in terms of finish times, high and low limit of heart rate and total time spent in the week so far.
A daily view allows you to specify the different types of Activity ("Running" below). It shows the timing to the exact second. If I wear the heart rate monitor during the activity, then it calculates the calories burned, fat consumption, maximum heart rate (HRmax) and average heart rate (HRavg, aka resting heart rate).
I'm planning to use this for tracking my marathon training this year.
I wish, and hope, Polar define a Web service so that users can access their data programmatically or at least allow the data to be exported in a usable format.
