Well firstly the data displayed on the screen is large so that at any stage during cycling you can process the data and make race changing decisions. Secondly, the Polar Tour de France CS500 does not contain small buttons like other similar cycle computers. Instead to select or navigate through options the left or right hand side of the whole computer is pressed. Both these reasons indicate that the designers of this cycling gadget are cyclists themselves and know what is good and what is not.
The feature for monitoring heart rate is interesting it can display beats per minute (bpm) or as a percentage (%) of your maximum heart rate. Specifically it allows heart rate-based calorie counting to provide a more accurate representation of workout.
