Rated 5 out of 5 by mwsmall7 Love it
I've had the RC3 with GPS since April of 2013 and have used it consistently since then. I have never had any trouble with it other than it sometimes taking a couple of minutes to find the satellite, but my friend's Garmin does the same thing. This is my third Polar watch in the last 11 years and I have loved all three of them. I almost wish that something would go wrong so that I could justify buying a newer model to satisfy that 'new gadget' urge, but it is steady as a rock. I'll continue to use it until I find a new item that I absolutely cannot live without, and I can guarantee that will be a new Polar product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JGM411 Very satisfied with this monitor. The watch is comfortable to wear. If I have a complaint and it is a minor one is that I sometimes hit the lap button when I want to resume the session after I have paused it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TKDbilly After 8 Months
I've had 2 other Polar's including one of the first ones offered and an RS200 I still own.
After 8 months of using my RC3GPS all the time here's my assessment:
Good: features, accuracy, size, battery life (contradicts other accounts but mine has been going strong); gray face easy to read
Not as Good: GPS lock takes about 2 minutes where I live on a tree lined driveway at 8,300 ft about sea level; can't customize the screens (minor as there are enough screens/info. to satisfy my needs; light not so bright as my aging eyes that need help ;)

Sent it back within 6 months due to not syncing with GPS and chewing through battery life. They found it defective. Within 9 months of the new set, the same EXACT thing is happening. When you send it in for warranty work--it takes 6 weeks or more, which is a long time to go without your gadgets. I'm going to look at another model or brand even though I have been a Polar loyalist for over a decade.
