Timex Bodylink System Now Available

Post by StanS » Wed, 30 Jul 2003 08:35:18

I've been waiting for this for about a year...Love my Polar S710, but it
lacks some nice functionality on the run...two questions:

1.  Why didn't they integrate the data recorder into the watch or GPS
unit?...having to carry a fourth piece of hardware strikes me as excessive.

2. Around a year ago when I bought speed/distance, a timex rep said he
thought the old units would be compatible with the HRM's when they came
out...anybody know if you can just purchase a HRM strap and the data unit,
and get full functionality by using the watch that originally came with
speed/distance?

You will be able to buy the data recorder and a HRM strap and use with
your SD watch and GPS they are fully compatible.  The stand alone
strap and data recorder will be available in a few weeks right now
just the  59551 SD + HR is available.  The data recorder is tiny you
can clip it to the HRM strap or gps armband.

Thanks for the info! It's appreciated and welcomed. One request, though.
Next time you advertise here, please preface your subject line with
"AD:" as stated in the FAQ.

Thanks,

Tom

Do you know whether the data recorder will record HR data from a Polar HR
belt.  I have a Polar S610 and teh Timex S+D. Will I just be able to buy the
data recorder or will I have to buy the new Timex witch and strap to record
HR and speed and distance info?

The data recorder will not work with a polar belt but it will work
with any Timex digital HRM belt.  The data recorder does not require a
watch to record HR however your SD watch will not display HR during
your run.   We have put together a FAQ at
http://bodylink.timexstore.com/helix/timex_bodylink_system_faq.htm
it may answer more of your questions.

I was told I would need to buy the Timex HRM and BodyLink data
recorder.  Using the new Timex HRM, the watch will read/show both
distance and HR.  BTW, the software will download in generic file
format... so, data will be transferable (at least that's what I was
told).

(I currently use a S510 (piece of crap) Polar and the Timex S+D combo)

You can use the data recorder without a watch it recorder data from
the GPS and strap directly.

Your old speed distance watch will not display heart rate.

check out the faq at bodylink.timexstore.com

your best bet is to get the bodylink 59571

Can you add bodylink functions, e.g., data recorder or speed + distance
sensor to a Timex 54071 HRM?
