1. INTRODUCTION TO THE RS100 RUNNING COMPUTER
Dear customer,
Congratulations on your purchase of a new Polar RS100 Running Computer!
Your running computer helps you achieve your exercise goals. It provides feedback on your body’s response to exercise.
The following tasks can be performed with the running computer:
1.1 PRODUCT ELEMENTS
Polar Web Services
The Polar RS100 Running Computer package consists of
the following parts:
www.PolarRunningCoach.com is a complete web service
tailored to support your exercise goals. Free registration
gives you access to the personalized training program,
training diary, useful articles and much more. In addition,
you can get latest product tips and support online at
www.polar.fi.
Wrist Unit
Planning
• Base your training and various exercise sessions on
heart rate.
Setting pace and controlling intensity
• Your heart rate is an accurate measure of exercise
intensity - it tells you how hard you are working. Use
heart rate to set a pace that you are able to maintain.
Keeping safe
• Monitor your heart rate during exercise to keep yourself
from pushing too hard or overtraining.
Checking progress
• Your heart rate allows you to objectively measure
improvements in your fitness level. For a particular
speed and time/distance, your heart rate should
decrease with improvements in your fitness.
6
The wrist unit displays and
records your heart rate and
exercise data during exercise.
Enter your personal settings into
the wrist unit and analyze exercise
information after your workouts.
Adapting to environment
• Your heart rate responds to internal and
external factors acting on your body (for
example, stress, lack of sleep, altitude
and temperature). Using your running
computer will help ensure a quality
workout in varying conditions.
Polar Coded Transmitter
Read this manual carefully to familiarize
yourself with your running computer. This
manual also contains a section about
maintenance.
The transmitter sends your heart
rate signal to the wrist unit. The
electrode areas on the back of the
transmitter detect your heart rate.
Have success and fun using your running
computer!
Elastic Strap
Customer Service, Registration and International
Guarantee Information
If your running computer needs repair, send it with the
Return Card for service to your Polar Service Center.
By completing the Customer Registration Card you help
us ensure the quality of customer support and the
development of future Polar products and services.
The Polar two-year guarantee is issued to the original
customer/purchaser of the product. Keep the International
Guarantee Card as your proof of purchase.

2. EXERCISING
Coded Heart Rate Transmission
2.1 WEARING YOUR TRANSMITTER
Coded heart rate transmission reduces interference from other heart rate monitors that are close by. To make sure that the
code search is successful and to ensure trouble-free heart rate monitoring, keep the wrist unit within 1 meter/3 feet of your
transmitter. Check that you are not near other people with heart rate monitors or any source of electromagnetic disturbance
(for further information on interference, see Precautions on page 50).
To measure your heart rate, you need to wear the transmitter.
1. Attach one end of the transmitter to the elastic strap.
A frame around the heart rate symbol indicates a coded heart rate transmission.
2. Adjust the strap length to fit snugly and comfortably. Secure the strap around your chest,
just below the chest muscles, and buckle the strap to the transmitter.
A heart rate symbol without a frame indicates a non-coded heart rate transmission.
The heart rate measurement functions also in a non-coded mode, especially if there aren’t
any sources of interface nearby.
3. Lift the transmitter off your chest and moisten the two grooved electrode areas on the back.
Note: If the wrist unit does not display your heart rate, make sure the transmitter electrodes are moist and that the strap is snug enough.
Bring the wrist unit near the Polar logo on the transmitter to restart heart rate detection.
4. Check that the wet electrode areas are firmly against your skin and that the Polar logo is in
a central, upright position.

5.1 TIMER SETTINGS
5.2 LIMITS SETTINGS (TARGET HEART RATE ZONE SETTING)
Running intervals is an important part of developing your running performance. Your running computer is equipped with two
alternating timers, allowing you to set one repeating or two different alternating time intervals.
OwnZone
Tip: You can set timer 1 for a sprint/run of 4 minutes and timer 2 for a 2-minute recovery.
Once set, the first timer will begin when the stopwatch is started in Recording mode. When Timer 1 is finished the alarm sounds once and
Timer 2 automatically starts. When Timer 2 is finished the alarm will sound twice and Timer 1 automatically begins again, and so on.
Your running computer is able to determine your individual aerobic (cardiovascular) heart rate zone automatically. This is
called OwnZone (OZ). OwnZone ensures that you exercise within safe limits.
Manually set Target Zone
You can create a target heart rate zone by setting upper and lower heart rate limits manually. Use this feature to maintain a
particular level of intensity, depending on your objectives.
1. In Time mode, press . Settings is displayed.
2. Press the Red button. Timer SET is displayed.

5.2.1 OWNZONE LIMITS
The OwnZone (OZ) feature determines your personal training zone primarily based on your heart rate variability. For most
adults, OwnZone corresponds to 65-85 % of maximum heart rate (HRmax). The OwnZone varies daily, depending on your
physical condition and mental state (for example, if you are not recovered from the previous training or feel stressed.)
Determining Your OwnZone Heart Rate Limits
Before you start to determine your OwnZone, make sure that:
• You entered your user settings correctly. The wrist unit will ask for missing information (for example date of birth) before
accepting limit settings.
• You activate the OwnZone limits. With the function on, the wrist unit will automatically determine your OwnZone
everytime you start recording an exercise session.
OwnZone limits can be determined in 1-5 minutes during a warm-up period by walking, jogging or doing another sport.
If determination based on heart rate variability is not successful, the previous OwnZone limits or your age predicted limits
(65-85% of HRmax) are used.
You should redefine your OwnZone:
• When changing your exercise environment or exercise mode.
• If you feel unusual about the physical state of your body when starting to exercise. For example you are stressed or
not feeling well.
(See the steps 1-4 on page 29.)
The display reads:

• select OwnZone limits
Red button
/
• select heart rate format: beats per minute or % of your
maximum heart rate

or
to set
Press the Red button to accept
The main idea is that you start your exercise with a warm-up period at a light intensity i.e. heart rate lower than
100 bpm/ 50% HRmax. You then gradually increase the intensity of your exercise to raise your heart rate.
• To return to Time mode, press and hold the Stop button.
Tip: See www.PolarRunningCoach.com for heart rate based Polar Training Programs.

OwnZone determination method
OwnZone
heart rate variability
Reasons for using this method
If not successful, then
Determination of your OwnZone happens in five stages.
Walk at a slow pace for 1 min. Keep your heart rate below 100 bpm/ 50% HRmax during this first stage.
After each stage you will hear a beep (if the sound settings are on) and the display automatically illuminates

5.2.2 MANUAL LIMITS
If you have not entered your date of birth in Basic Settings, the wrist unit will ask for the missing information before
accepting the limit settings. The wrist unit displays your previously defined heart rate limits.
Instead of determining your target heart rate zone by using OwnZone, you can define your target heart rate limits by using
the age formula.
Your target heart rate zone is a range between lower and upper heart rate limits expressed as percentages of your maximum
heart rate (HRmax) or as beats per minute (bpm). HRmax is the highest number of heartbeats per minute during maximum
physical exertion. The wrist unit calculates your HRmax, using to your age:
Maximum heart rate = 220-age. For more accurate measurement of your HRmax, visit your doctor or exercise physiologist for
an exercise stress test.
Alternatively, if you have not defined the manual limits before, your age-based limits are displayed.

6. CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Service
Like any electronic device, your Polar Running Computer should be treated with care. The suggestions below will help you
fulfill guarantee obligations and enjoy this product for many years to come.
During the two-year guarantee/warranty period we recommend that you service the product at an authorized Polar Service
Center only. The warranty does not cover damage or consequential damage caused by service not authorized by Polar Electro.
Taking Care of Your Running Computer
Transmitter Battery
• Store your wrist unit and transmitter in a cool and dry place. Do not store them in a damp environment, in non-breathable
material (such as a plastic bag or a sports bag) or with conductive material such as a wet towel. Sweat and moisture
can keep the transmitter electrodes wet and the transmitter activated, shortening battery life.
• Keep your unit clean. Clean it with a mild soap and water solution. Dry it carefully with a soft towel. Never use alcohol or
any abrasive material such as steel wool or cleaning chemicals.
• The operating temperatures are -10 °C to +50 °C / +14 °F to +122 °F.
• Do not expose the running computer to direct sunlight for extended periods, such as by leaving it in a car.
• Do not bend or stretch the transmitter. This may damage the electrodes.
• Do not dry the transmitter in any other way than with a towel. Mishandling may damage the electrodes.
Contact your authorized Polar Service Center for a replacement transmitter. Polar recycles used transmitters. See your
Customer Care and Registration Card for detailed instructions.
Wrist Unit Battery
The estimated average battery life of the wrist unit is two years in normal use (1h/day, 7 days/week). Excessive use of
the backlight drains the wrist unit’s battery more rapidly. The low battery indicator
is displayed when 10-15% of the
wrist unit battery capacity is left and the battery should be replaced. Do not open the wrist unit yourself. To ensure water
resistance properties and the use of qualified components, the wrist unit battery should be replaced by an authorized Polar
Service Center only. At the same time, a full periodic check of the running computer will be done.
Note:

7. PRECAUTIONS
INTERFERENCE DURING EXERCISE
Electromagnetic Interference
Disturbances may occur near high voltage power lines, traffic lights,
overhead lines of electric railways, electric bus lines or trams,
televisions, car motors, bike computers, some motor driven exercise
equipment, cell phones, or when you walk through electric security
gates.
Exercise Equipment
Several pieces of exercise equipment with electronic or electrical
components such as LED displays, motors, and electrical brakes
may cause interfering stray signals. To tackle these problems, try
the following:
1. Remove the transmitter from your chest and use the exercise
equipment as you would normally.
2. Move the wrist unit around until you find an area in which it
displays no stray reading or does not flash the heart symbol.
Interference is often worst right in front of the display panel of
the equipment, while the left or right side of the display is
relatively free of disturbance.
3. Put the transmitter back on your chest and keep the wrist unit in
this interference-free area as much as possible.
4. If the running computer still does not work with the exercise
equipment, this piece of equipment may be electrically too noisy
for wireless heart rate measurement.
50
Minimizing Possible Risks When Exercising
Exercise may include some risk. Before beginning a regular exercise
program, it is recommended that you answer the following questions
concerning your health status. If you answer yes to any of these
questions, we recommend that you consult a doctor before starting
any training program.
Crosstalk
the wrist unit picks up transmitter
When in non-coded mode
signals within 3 feet/1 meter. Simultaneous non-coded signals
from more than one transmitter can cause an incorrect readout.
Using the Polar Running Computer in a Water Environment
Your running computer is water resistant and can be worn when
swimming. The running computer is not, however, a diving instrument. To maintain water resistance, do not press the buttons of
the wrist unit under water. When measuring heart rate in water you
may experience interference for the following reasons:
• Pool water with high chlorine content and seawater are very
conductive. The electrodes of a transmitter may short-circuit,
preventing ECG signals from being detected by the transmitter.
• Jumping into water or a strenuous muscle movement during
competitive swimming may cause water resistance that shifts
the transmitter to a location on the body where it ECG signals
cannot be picked up.
• The ECG signal strength depends on the individual, and varies
depending on the individual’s tissue composition.
The occurrence of problems when measuring heart rate is
considerably higher in water.

Notice to individuals with pacemakers, defibrillators or other
implanted electronic devices. Individuals who have a pacemaker
use the Polar Running Computer at their own risk. Before starting
use, we always recommend a maximal exercise stress test under a
doctor’s supervision. The test is to ensure the safety and reliability
of the simultaneous use of the pacemaker and the Polar Running
Computer.
If you are allergic to any substance that comes into contact with
your skin or if you suspect an allergic reaction due to using the
product, check the listed materials on page 55. To avoid any skin
reaction to the transmitter, wear it over a shirt. However, moisten
the shirt well under the electrodes to ensure flawless operation.
The combined impact of moisture and intense abrasion may
cause a black color to come off the transmitter’s surface, which
might stain light-colored clothes.
Note that in addition to exercise intensity, medications for heart,
blood pressure, psychological conditions, asthma, breathing etc.
as well as some energy drinks, alcohol and nicotine may affect your
heart rate.
It is important to be sensitive to your body’s responses during
exercise. If you feel unexpected pain or excessive fatigue when
exercising, it is recommended that you stop the exercise or continue
at a lighter intensity.

8. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I do if…
…if I do not know where I am in the menu?
Press and hold the Stop button until the time of day is displayed.
…there are no reactions to any buttons?
Reset the wrist unit by pressing the four side buttons simultaneously for two seconds. Set the time and date in the Basic Setting
after the reset. Other settings are saved.
…the heart rate reading becomes erratic or extremely high?
Strong electromagnetic signals can cause erratic readings. So move
away from possible sources of disturbance such as high-voltage
power lines, traffic lights, overhead lines of electric railways or
trams, car motors, bike computers, some motor-driven exercise
equipment (like fitness testers) or cell phones.
If moving away does not help and the heart rate reading remains
erratic, slow down your speed and check your pulse manually. If you
feel it corresponds to the high reading on the display, you may be
experiencing cardiac arrhythmia. Most cases of arrhythmia are not
serious, but consult your doctor nevertheless.
…the heart symbol flashes irregularly?
• Check that your wrist unit is not further than 1 m/3 ft from the
transmitter.
• Check that the transmitter has not become loose during
exercise.
• Make sure that the electrodes of the transmitter are moistened.
52
• Make sure that there is no other heart rate transmitter within
1 m/3 ft.
• Cardiac arrhythmia may cause irregular readings. In this case,
consult your physician.
…there is no heart rate reading (- -)?
• Check that the electrodes of the transmitter are moistened and
that you are wearing it as instructed.
• Make sure the transmitter is clean.
• Check that you are not near high voltage power lines,
televisions, cell phones or other sources of electromagnetic
interference.
Also make sure that you are not near (1 m/3 ft) other heart rate
monitor users, when starting you exercise recording.
• A cardiac event may have altered your ECG waveform. In this
case, consult your physician.
…another person with a running computer or a heart rate monitor is causing interference?
Move away from that person and continue your exercise normally.
Alternatively,
1. Take the transmitter off your chest for 30 seconds. Stay away
from the person with the other device.
2. Put the transmitter back on and bring the wrist unit up to your
chest near the transmitter’s Polar logo. The wrist unit will start
looking for a heart rate signal again. Continue your exercise
normally.
ENG
appears?
…the low battery symbol
Usually the first sign of an expired battery is the low battery
indicator on the display. For further information, see page 49.
Note: Due to cold conditions the low battery indicator may appear,
but the indicator disappears when you return to a normal
temperature.
…the display is blank?
The running computer is in battery saving mode when it is
dispatched from the factory. To activate it, press the Red button
twice. The Basic Settings starts. For further information, see page 8.
Alternatively the battery may be dead (see the next question for
further instructions).
…the battery of the wrist unit must be replaced?
We recommend having all service done by an authorized Polar
Service Center. This is especially necessary to ensure that the
guarantee remains valid and is not affected by incorrect repair
procedures performed by an unauthorized agent. Polar Service will
test your wrist unit for water resistance after battery replacement
and make a full periodic check of the complete running computer
set.
