This adds cadence monitoring to polar computers

PostedMarch 14, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: packaging excessive
The polar cadence sensor comes with everything you need to attach to your bike, adding cadence sensing to compatible Polar cycle computers (in my case a CS200)
Included in the pack is the sensor unit, rubber mounting strap, 4x cable ties, self adhesive sensor magnet for crank arm and a strip of heavy duty tape to ensure the magnet stays in place.
The only down side is this comes in one of those plastic blister packs that are so annoying to open.

Great training aid - works as expected

PostedJanuary 31, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Knowing your cadence is very useful for training, especially in conjunction with heart rate and speed. I have had no issues with this product; installation is easy and it communicates perfectly well with my cs200 without interference issues - I have an aluminium framed bike. I have also found no need to 'upgrade' the magnet as other users have mentioned.
If I had to provide a 'con' it would be that it seems a bit primitive to still use cable ties to attach accessories to our bikes. There are countless products that use soft rubbers and straps to attach. This is only a minor gripe though.
Everthing I needed to attach to the bike was included in the box - magnet, tape, rubber seat for the sensor, cables ties and the sensor.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: cant replace battery
Good quality and it comes with every fitting needed for the bike but very disappointing the battery CAN NOT be replaced! Once the battery runs out you need to buy a whole new sensor unit unless you want to cut the sensor open, fit a new battery and glue it back together but it may not be water proof afterwards...

Polar cadence sensor

PostedFebruary 15, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Unattractive
Worked straight out of the box, no complaints. Installation is a tad fiddly and it's not the most attractive thing in the world but it is reliable

Polar Cadence sensor

PostedApril 18, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: throw-away cost, bulky
The description doesn't include the fact that this is compatible with CS400 which it is. Easy to mount and have not experienced any interference or lack of signal. Only issue is that batteries in the sensor cannot be replaced so will have to be replaced.
