User Review: Polar AXN500
Price Paid: U$300+
5 batteries and 3 straps ago, from Asia to the North America and it's still serving me like it did when I first got it - not to mention the original transmitter - whew!
I've used this in the tropics backpacking from beaches to 9K+ ft peaks, running, swimming, work, parties ... and the great thing is it helped me monitor, record and improve my fitness.
I wish Polar will come up with a second/third generation of AXNs and also replacements for the wrist strap "plates" (those 2 black plastic plates under the strap each secured by 2 screws).
Note: when attempting to replace the straps - the 4 screws that hold the wrist strap plates ALSO secures the whole back of the case, so be very careful. learned the hard way when I decided to wash off the dirt between the strap and case and turned the AXN into a little aquarium. SOLUTION! pun intended ... totally dismantle the primary components of the watch and air dry.
Hopefully after 2 nights and a can of air rid of all the moisture from the washing.
Here's to more years with my AXN.
