This morning I got a call from the HRM dealer that the RS800cx is in stock and that I can either pick it up or have it delivered. Since I live only 30 minutes away from their offices I hopped in the car and picked-up the HRM during the lunch break. I was unable to do any test run, biking or any other exercise. I'm banged-up pretty well from Sunday's race so you will need to wait few more days for more news about how the RS800CX performs during the training. My ankle needs to heel first and I want to give the staples another day before I put any stress on them. Until then enjoy few pictured from unpacking the RS800CX:
I find it pleasant surprise that Polar now includes the IR USB stick in the package as well as the extension strap. I paired the watch with the G3 sensor without any issues and also paired the watch with my existing WIND HR belt I use with the CS600. I had no issues in pairing and I successfully performed the Optimization and Fitness test. That is as far as I got today. Post any questions in comments, when I'm able to exercise I'll test things out little more and post more detailed report.
