As the official heart rate monitor supplier to 12 teams, this year?s Tour de France saw 108 riders using Polar?s cycling technology. To celebrate that many pros using its equipment, Polar has released a special Tour edition heart rate monitor.

The S725X has a great new look and features speed, distance, altitude, ascent, with optional power output and cadence measurements combined with Polar?s renowned expertise in heart rate monitoring. Like its other top-end offerings, the S725X features wireless connectivity to the bike?s sensors and when downloading your race/training data to a PC.

Off the bike, the S725X can be used for multi-sports training. Running speed and distance can be measured with the optional Polar S1 foot pod, a sensor that attaches to your running shoe.
