Earlier this week, I received an email from Polar Electro that announced the latest upgrade to their Polar Precision Performance Software (Version 4.02.035). The features included in this update include:

  • Tools Connection
    • OwnIndex and HRmax-p values read and saved to Diary automatically.
  • Reports
    • Relative bars selection added to time and exertion in HR zones.
  • View Curve Cursor values
    • Pace added.
    • Descent added.
  • Options Person Properties Measurement Units
    • Pace unit s/500m added for rowing.

This update is for users of Microsoft Windows 98, 98SE, Millenium Edition, 2000, and XP. It's one of the few pieces of software that is causing me to keep a Windows PC in my office.

What I love about Polar's training log software is how well it works with my Polar S-710, its robust USB-infared interface, and how often the software itself is updated. Looking back at my mail cache, Polar's software was updated in 2004 on October 6, August 24, and May 11. That's a pretty relentless update schedule.
