The Polar CS500+ Cycling Computer is ideal for ambitious cyclists seeking improved cycling performance. With extended memory records and more hours of highly accurate power data from the compatible Polar LOOK Keo Power pedals.

With the innovative design of the new cycle computer Polar CS500+ cad the ambitious cyclist maintains at maximum speed the full control of the achievement.



The new CS500+ cad with increased storage capacity. Instead of the previous 14 files (CS500), CS500+ now stores up to 30 training files. With the innovative design of the new cycle computer CS500+ cad the ambitious cyclist maintains at maximum speed the full control of the achievement. Incl. Cadence Sensor! Beside proven Polar functions as for example the Polar OwnZone® offers of the CS500+ cad many other innovations. By the Rocker Switch you can change the display view fast and simply. By the combination of heart frequency and speed measurement the CS500+ cad contributes to an increase in output. CS500+ cad measures the increase and the slope as well as the height during the tour and determines your training load and your required regeneration time. Remember function for a timely liquid and food intake. Absolutely undisturbed transmission technology (2,4 GHz, W.I.N.D.-Technology). ZonePointer: Makes it easy to stay in your target zone. Polar OwnCal®: Counts and displays calorie expenditure. Polar OwnCode®: Prevents cross-talk from other heart rate monitors. Polar OwnZone®: Determines personal heart rate limits for a training session. Polar Fitness Test™ with OwnIndex®.

Water resistance of Polar products is tested according to International IEC 60529 IPx7 (1m, 30min, 20ºC). Products are divided into four different categories according to water resistance. Check the back of your Polar product for the water resistance category and compare it to the chart below. Please note that these definitions do not necessarily apply to products of other manufacturers.

Water Resistance

Water proof IPX7* Not suitable for bathing or swimming. Protected against wash splashes and raindrops. Do not wash with a pressure washer.

Water resistant** Not suitable for swimming. Protected against wash splashes, sweat, raindrops etc. Do not wash with a pressure washer.

Water resistant 30 m/50 m*** Suitable for bathing and swimming

Water resistant 100 m Suitable for swimming and snorkeling (without air tanks)

* Polar CS500+ cycling computer and Polar LOOK Kéo Power system

** CS speed sensor W.I.N.D. and CS cadence sensor W.I.N.D.

*** Polar H3 heart rate sensor is water resistant 30 m, but it does not measure heart rate in water.
