Countdown-Function for the Gym
Hi there,
you know the situation at the gym: you do your 3-5 sets with a defined break, for e.g. 60 seconds. In my gym we have these pretty uncool kitchen timers. But why do I have my v800 and the gym profile?

I want to have a gesture-feature (knocking on the v800) that starts a countdown of a pre-defined time (defined in the gym-profile). The countdown should be shown on the display in large numbers and simply start. An option for acoustic alert at the end would be nice.

IMHO this could be a real killer feature and what does it take? Some lines of code in the firmware.

my 2 cents

Could it be just a firmware update?
I was hoping to see this feature with the next firmware update, but it did not happen. So hopping for the next one...

Timer in paused training mode
It would be quite useful to have a timer / stopwatch on the screen when the ongoing training is paused by the back button. It could show the resting time in seconds. It is a kind of manual interval training.

Just reviewing that after more than 2 years, we still do not have the ability to create programs like on RS800CX which is a shame, as there is no other product out there that performs as good...
The ability to create running programs using dynamic triggers still missing today on ANY Polar product that you could program into RS400/ R800 for serious trainers...

I need to be able to set a program on my M400/M430/V800 and even possibly my A370, as I could on my RS800 using dynamic triggers ; something like this:

Warm-up 5 min on Zone2
5Km locked on Zone3
8 intervals like this (1200m on Zone4 , then slow down until Zone2, repeat)
10m cool-down

Another program (striders)
10m warmup on zone2
4Km Zone3
12 intervals (800m over 90rpm, then cooldown until Zone3 ; repeat)
15m cool-down

Is this possible today on any non-deprecated Polar product?

I guess this is what you mean with dynamic trigger... Afaik, you can't, but if you guess a duration for the slowing down, it would work.

Wait, you could set the phase "then slow down until Zone2" HR based to your Zone 2, give it 3 min _and_ set the "Next phase start" to "Manual". If you reach zone 2 before the 3 min then just start the next hard phase or if you need a couple of seconds more, just look at the zone pointer.

That could also work for your second example...

Sufficiently satisfying?
